Transform Your Fleet with Big Data

At this moment, your fleet is generating thousands of data points. This data can provide solutions to the greatest challenges facing members of the transportation industry. Predictive fleet analytics can leverage your data to build customized models that explain why events occurred, as well as suggest action plans to avoid them in the future. This insight empowers fleets to learn from past mistakes and to make intelligent decisions.

Big Data is About to Change the Transportation Industry as We Know It

Everything you know about the transportation industry is about to change. Enormous wells of data, deep data analysis, and predictive modeling will empower carriers to operate more safely, efficiently, and profitably. The right fleet management analytics software can turn this paradigm shift into your competitive advantage.

The Interstate of Things (ISoT)

The explosion of data being driven by the growth in connectivity, advanced safety systems and sensors, predictive analytics, and big data infrastructure is transforming the way the transportation industry must manage all the inputs from fleets and partners. Global critical events like weather, traffic, construction, and even crowd-sourcing and smart infrastructure are creating endless possibilities for optimizing your fleet but where does one start?  Learn More

Reduce Accidents with Predictive Safety Analytics

The number of accidents and injuries involving large trucks continues to rise, and according to the FMCSA, 58% involve at least one driver-related factor. With an average cost of $330,000 for an injury due to an accident, an unexpected spike in these incidents can put a fleet in serious jeopardy.

Good News: Accidents Can Be Prevented

Contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of accidents are not random, but are the result of a gradual change in driver behavior. Fleet analytics software with predictive modeling can pick up on these subtle changes, and recommend remediation plans to address issues well before they result in dangerous behavior — and an expensive accident.  Learn More

Compliance Doesn't Equal Safety

“The FMCSA has made it clear with the ELD mandate that operating in accordance with regulations in a documented process is the minimum standard. The renewed focus on hours of service management is the beginning of a tremendous opportunity for fleets to increase safety and efficiency that only starts with basic compliance,” states Brad Taylor, Vice President of Data and IoT Solutions at Omnitracs. “What many in our industry don’t realize is that to ensure the safe operation of trucks on our nation’s roads — and take care of drivers — compliance with Hours of Service regulations is not enough. A driver could have an ELD, be 100% compliant on his hours, and still be sound asleep at the wheel, simultaneously. This is why we continue to develop safety-focused behavior predictive analytics like the Accident Severity Model — to allow fleets to predict serious accidents using HOS data and proactively intervene with those drivers at highest risk for being involved.” Learn More

Don’t Let Driver Shortages Slow Growth

With rising demand and an aging workforce, there’s a great deal of discussion about future driver shortages. To provide great service to existing clients — and take advantage of new business opportunities as they arise — having enough well-trained, reliable drivers is critical. Positioning your fleet for success requires retaining current performers, and investing intelligently in promising, new talent. 

Turnover Reduction

Retain Your Drivers

The trucking industry suffers from a jaw-dropping 96% annual turnover rate. It’s clear that traditional retention methods have proven to be too little, too late. The time has come for a proactive approach.

Historical data shows a clear pattern of subtle, yet impactful behavior changes that foreshadow a driver leaving. The predictive models in our transportation analysis software harness the power of this data, resulting in an impressive 13% average reduction in driver turnover across all customers.  Learn More

Invest Intelligently with Recruiting Analytics

Imagine how being able to clone your best drivers would impact your opportunities for growth. In some ways, you can do just that. Identifying the traits and backgrounds that make them successful, and using that information to find similar driver candidates, increases a fleet’s chance for long-term recruiting success.

Predictive fleet analytics provides this insight before you hire and invest in human capital, minimizing expensive recruiting and training costs, and allowing you to focus on the drivers who will be around for the long haul.  Learn More

Workers Comp

Control Costs by Minimizing Workers' Comp Claims

One out of every 13 trucking industry employees has a workers’ compensation claim resulting in lost work time at an average cost of $30,000 per year. The industry has accepted this as a cost of doing business. Training and process improvements have traditionally served as the only corrective action, but have not impacted claim rates. Fleet management predictive analytics can offer a new approach.

Understanding the behavioral trends that serve as a precursor to a workers' compensation claim is key. Omnitracs' fleet analytics software detects this behavior, provides insight into the drivers most likely to make a claim, and recommends proactive strategies that can help avoid it.  Learn More

We’ve seen a substantial decrease in our crashes over the years, as well as our overall minor crashes and incidents, and reduced risk costs which go to the bottom line.
