features & Benefits
Installation is Simple
Plug-and-go installation takes less than 30 seconds: just plug CarChip Fleet Pro into the OBD II port. When you are ready to get the device data, simply unplug the device from the vehicle and connect it to your PC. Wireless download option is also available. Because CarChip Fleet Pro doesn’t require a wiring harness or costly, time-consuming installation, the device is easily reassigned as vehicles rotate in and out of a fleet.
CarChip Fleet Pro is a workhorse with its own minicomputer. The vehicle’s safety settings, such as acceleration and deceleration forces, are stored on the device, which acts as a data logger. Driving and GPS data (if equipped with GPS) are collected and stored, up to 1200 hours of data, until the data is downloaded and transferred to the CarChip Connect site.
Historical Vehicle Location Tracking
See where your vehicles have been by choosing the GPS option. Combine the GPS information with the street view option in Google Maps to gain insight on where vehicles have been.
Back-up Battery Provides Unbroken Recording
CarChip Fleet Pro is powered through the OBD II port and also has its own back-up battery. CarChip Fleet Pro keeps a record if the device has been unplugged so you’ll know if and when the unit has been disconnected.
CarChip Fleet Pro’s web-based analytics help make sense of the fleet driving data. Using the Safety, Activity and other reports, Fleet Managers can quickly identify areas for improvement and cost savings through safer driving and greater efficiency. All reports have graphing features and show a vehicle or driver’s score along with a summarized score for the fleet, location, or company.
Get Graphs with a Click
If you prefer a more visual picture of your fleet’s performance, use the graphing function. Graphs are available for scored reports and show each driver’s or vehicle’s color-coded score along with the fleet or location average in blue. You can quickly and easily see how your fleet is doing.
Encourage Safe Driving
The Safety Score Report pinpoints driving behavior that needs improvement (speed, hard acceleration and deceleration, and time-of-day driving). By decreasing the time spent speeding and avoiding rapid starts and hard stops, your drivers can reduce their accident risk while increasing the fleet’s fuel efficiency. Use this report to hone in on driver performance.
Monitor Fleet Efficiency
The Activity Report provides an at-a-glance summary of how your fleet compares based on your company’s set parameters. Your drivers will be ranked based on their cumulative scores in days driven; distance driven; top speed; and the daily averages for driving, idling and stopping.
When an Incident Happens
CarChip Fleet Pro acts like an airplane black box, storing detailed data that preceded the event. The Incident Report will show you when and where (if GPS enabled) the event occurred. Click on the driver or vehicle to see second-by-second data such as speed for the last 20 seconds to determine if the driver was speeding, slowing or slamming on the brakes.
Additional Reporting Capabilities
The CarChip Connect web application hosts additional customizable reports to help track your vehicles.
● Readiness Report: Provides a quick view of which vehicles have active diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), have failed the vehicle’s internal emissions test or had the CarChip Connect device unplugged.
● Speed Band Report: Shows total miles driven and the percent of time within defined speed bands, including idle, slow, normal, fast and speeding.
● Trip Summary Report: Lists each trip taken including start time, end time, trip duration, idle time and distance driven along with the trip end location.
● Emissions Report: Records the emissions profile and diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) for the vehicle each time the vehicle is started.
Improve Safety with Real-Time Feedback
Safety: it’s the foundation of a successful fleet. Safety and efficiency increase when drivers receive real-time feedback on their driving behavior. Determine the safety standards for driving parameters — speed, acceleration, or deceleration— that matter to you or use our preset standards. An integral buzzer sounds in the vehicle, giving your drivers immediate feedback when they exceed a limit. This helps you promote driver safety and reduce accident risk.
Correct Aggressive Driving
Use the Safety Score report to determine hard or extreme driving events, such as hard braking or rapid acceleration, that exceed your specified safety standards. Regular events can indicate aggressive driving and alert you to increased accident risk and more frequent repairs.
Location, Location, Location
See the routes your drivers took, the speeds they drove and the location of any accidents or near-accidents when using the the optional GPS feature.
Set Alerts for Important Notification
Choose the alerts you want to see online. You can set up the system to show only the alerts that interest you such as diagnostic trouble codes, incidents, hard acceleration, and more. With the optional GPS system, you’ll be able to connect an alert time with the location in which it occurred.
Onboard Alarms Improve Safety and Productivity
You can create driver awareness by setting the onboard alarm to sound when the driver is exceeding speeds, acceleration, deceleration or hard cornering limits. This provides immediate feedback to drivers, coaching them to improve driving habits. Used in conjunction with reporting, managers can develop driver training programs to modify driving behavior.
Manage your fleet anytime from anywhere you have Internet or smartphone access. CarChip Fleet Pro can be upgraded to use wireless technology to send data to Davis’ cloud-based reporting application. Users log in to a secure, company-specific site to view and manage their information. We’ve designed the site with multiple user designations and permission levels so you can control who has access to the information.
