Cadec Rolls Out Updates to GYR Performance Management Scorecards

Performance metrics help fleet managers track and improve driver safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle performance, financial analysis and customer service

Manchester, N.H.Aug. 16, 2012—Enterprise-class fleet management solutions provider Cadec Global expanded its Performance Management Scorecards as part of its PowerVue system to help fleet managers closely track and report on driver and vehicle performance in real-time to improve safety, fuel efficiency and customer service.

“We are excited to provide these new scorecarding tools to our fleet managers,” said Paul Battista, Project Manager at Valley Proteins. “We can now track, aggregate, weight and scale dozens of critical driver and vehicle performance metrics in real-time which will help us improve driver safety, vehicle performance, fuel efficiency and most importantly improve service levels to our clients. Providing great customer service through on-time performance is what we pride ourselves on and being able to closely track and monitor detailed information about our drivers and our vehicles in real-time helps us provide the best service possible to our customers.”

Also known as GYR for its graphic display of Green, Yellow or Red statuses, the Performance Management Scorecards provide fleet managers with an easy-to-read report on driver behavior based on key performance indicators (KPI’s) that highlight such issues as speeding; idling; over revving; or sudden decelerations. There are now more than 50 configurable metrics available for fleet managers to monitor in real-time or use in periodic assessments, including excess idling; speeding events; out of route miles; unknown stops; average miles per gallon; as well as pickup and delivery performance.

Metrics can be categorized to create scorecards by driver, vehicle, site and excess cost; and further specified to track items such as driver safety, driver fuel efficiency, driver performance, vehicle fuel efficiency, vehicle engine wear and vehicle performance.

Fleet managers can view trending data, current status and key indicators for each of these categories via dashboards. They can also choose their own metrics to measure, define status and trend thresholds, scale factors, and cost factors to customize the scorecards for their own fleet.

“We are proud to build on this popular customer functionality with these expanded scorecards and offer the largest library of performance metrics in the industry,” said Jon Bernstein, Chief Executive Officer of Cadec. “They are a big step forward in tracking, analyzing and modifying driver behavior to optimize fleet performance. Performance management through advanced scorecarding allows fleets to set company-wide standards, measure effectively against those standards, and modify behavior to improve fleet safety and performance, and reduce excess costs.”
