960 640 Guest Post

Gateshead-headquartered Lucion Services, an international leader in environmental risk management services, has announced the roll-out of Lightfoot’s in-vehicle driver efficiency technology and rewards platform to its fleet of 197 vans.

The decision follows successful trials which led to uplifts in mpg by more than 10%, reductions in CO2 emissions by 5.6%, falls in idling time by 29% and the eradication of instances of dangerous driving.

Nearly a thousand tonnes of CO2 will be stopped from entering the earth’s atmosphere over a five-year period, this is equivalent to the carbon captured by over a thousand acres of forest a year.

Lightfoot prepares to enter the EV market

960 640 Guest Post

By Lightfoot

Lightfoot was born from developing and electrifying vehicles – from the McLaren P1, to Caterpillar diggers – Lightfoot understand EVs. 

As EV adoption accelerates, Lightfoot is positioning itself to be a market-leading EV technology provider to Fleets thanks to the unique approach of live in-cab feedback optimising the effectiveness of EVs coupled with a rich feed of data enabling efficient management of your EV Fleet. 

Early indicators suggest that Lightfoot could have an even greater impact in EVs than ICE vehicles, based on a number of factors such as increasing range and reducing time spent charging. As is the Lightfoot way, they are coming at this from a very different angle and the driver is, as always, at the heart of it all.

Lightfoot announces a series of new rewards

960 640 Stuart O'Brien

Lightfoot, the industry-leading fleet driver rewards platform and in-cab driver guidance technology, has announced a series of new rewards for users in the run up to Christmas.

In addition to giving 15% off all Virgin experience days – a perfect present for partners, friends and family – the team at Lightfoot are giving users 10% off Warranty Wise. Now, Lightfoot drivers can extend the warranty on their private vehicles for less, covering expensive, unexpected or premature failure of parts as well as the cost of car hire and onward travel.

Part of the Lightfoot promise to reward drivers for being better, the discount feature comes on top of the weekly cash-prize Drivers’ Lottery and competitions where Elite Drivers can unlock access to great prizes ranging from cinema tickets to consumer tech. 

Believing in reward over reproach, Lightfoot’s driver guidance dashboard device, paired with the Lightfoot app and rewards pack, continues to collectively save fleet millions of pounds each year.  Cutting fuel bills and CO2 by up to 15%, reducing at-fault accidents by as much as 40% and wear and tear by up to 45%, Lightfoot’s driver-focused approach is driving change where it matters most – at the wheel.

Going further, Lightfoot’s all new Nelly’s Heroes Driver Community launched in November bringing top tips, competitions, and extra discounts to users via email. Lightfoot drivers now have more reason than ever to be the best that they can be.

Why Lightfoot has trumped telematics

960 640 Guest Post

Many companies who turn to Lightfoot have had telematics systems for years which have always provided a wealth of data to managers who are then relied on to communicate this information back to drivers in a top-down way – inefficient, ineffective and outdated.

 Companies have realised that this approach is fundamentally broken and the wrong way around. Instead, they look to Lightfoot’s bottom-up approach to engage drivers in real-time and reward them for their performance, empowering those in the driving seat to drive change.

Lightfoot: Delivering robust returns for some of the UK’s largest and most complex fleets

960 640 Guest Post

Many of the companies who turn to Lightfoot have had telematics systems for years which have always provided a wealth of data to managers, who are then in turn relied on to communicate this information back to drivers.

Companies have realised that this approach is fundamentally broken and the wrong way around. Instead, they look to Lightfoot’s bottom-up approach to engage and rewards drivers, empowering those in the driving seat to drive change.

To demonstrate this bottom-up approach, during the months of September and October 2020, Lightfoot are offering a free 6-week trial to any UK-based fleet over 100 vehicles (subject to terms & conditions).

The Lightfoot trial is unique in the industry and provides a clear comparison of fleet performance before and after Lightfoot deployment – this leads to a robust ROI case study for fleet owners to evaluate at the end of the 6-week trial.

Lightfoot backs Brake’s National Road Victim Month

960 640 Guest Post

Lightfoot, the award-winning in-cab driver technology and rewards platform, has announced that it is one of the chief sponsors of a major new virtual fleet safety exhibition being run and organised by Brake, as part of National Road Victim Month.

The Global Fleet Champion Virtual Fleet Exhibition, which takes place this August, sees several of the industry’s leaders in driver safety come together to help reduce accidents and fatalities experienced on the roads, not just in the UK but also around the world.

Showcasing projects, partnerships and products involving fleet operators and suppliers, the event is designed to highlight how initiatives can be used to improve road safety. Brake sees this as vital in the drive to reduce collisions caused by and involving ‘at work’ drivers, who account for one in three crashes on our roads each year.

Lightfoot, which is one of seven partners to participate in the event, has been chosen as its technology plays a key role in reducing accidents and instances of dangerous driving amongst users.  Its innovative in-cab driver feedback helps cut at-fault accidents by up to 40% and helps fleets achieve greater efficiency from their vehicles with fuel savings of up to 15%. Lightfoot additionally reduces harmful emissions by up to 15%, and wear and tear costs by as much as 45%.

Lightfoot’s impact on driver safety has led to endorsements from many of the UK’s leading Insurers and Brokers, due to the effectiveness of its pocket-sized dashboard display device, which uses live engine data to provide drivers with real-time visual and audible feedback, helping fleets to improve efficiency and safety one mile at a time.  

Lightfoot’s disruptive approach, based on nudge psychology with input from the Institute of Advanced Motorists and leading driver-behaviour experts at Bath University, uses advanced, real-time engine analytics to help drivers improve both efficiency and safety, rewarding them for being better through a unique driver gamification and rewards platform. 

Tests undertaken by Bath University’s Institute of Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems have proven a direct correlation between Lightfoot’s in-cab visual alerts and reductions in NOx. Its studies show that if drivers half the number of lights lit up on Lightfoot’s pocket-sized in-cab dashboard device, a fivefold reduction in NOx is achieved.

Encouraging smoother, safer driving, Lightfoot gives users full insight into their performance and score via its end of journey score and rewards app. The app provides access to exclusive competitions, which drivers can opt into as soon as they achieve Lightfoot’s ‘Elite Driver’ standard; the point at which fleets see the biggest falls in accidents, the best efficiencies and savings across the board. 

In addition to the highly popular cash-prize Drivers’ Lottery, drivers can enter competitions for a range of other prizes that serve as an incentive to maintain a smoother driving style.

Considered revolutionary in the fleet management and telematics worlds, Lightfoot’s disruptive approach to reducing accidents has been adopted by some of the largest companies in the market, including Virgin Media, Dixons Carphone, and South West Water. 

Martin Kadhim, Partnerships Director at Lightfoot, commented: “Safety on the roads should be an organisation’s number one priority, both to its workforce and members of the public. That sits at the heart of what we do at Lightfoot, and its why we’re big supporters of National Road Victim Month, the Global Fleet Champions campaign and its virtual exhibition.

“Our obsession at Lightfoot lies in reducing accidents on the road. It’s precisely why we reward better driving. Only if a driver wants to be better and has a vested interest in doing so can you have any certainty of actual change. Achieve that, and you instantly increase safety on the road. It’s why motivation and reward sit at the core of all we do.

“But we also go further,” adds Martin Kadhim. “On top of that, we provide fleet managers with a suite of other services and technology to better protect the health and wellbeing of their staff. This includes our First Notice of Loss (FNOL) service, enabling businesses to protect drivers by alerting fleet managers to incidents and accidents, enhancing their Duty of Care. Now, those responsible for fleets can instantly assess the level of response required following an incident and can contact drivers so that they can establish if attendance by the emergency services is required.”

Many companies who turn to Lightfoot have had telematics systems for years, which have always provided a wealth of data to managers who are then relied on to communicate this information back to drivers. Companies have realised that this approach is fundamentally broken and the wrong way around. Instead, they look to Lightfoot’s bottom-up approach to engage and reward drivers, empowering those in the driving seat to effect change. 

Using smart technology, which takes account of different factors such as load and road gradient, Lightfoot provides live, visual and audio in-cab coaching which instantly changes driving style ‘in the moment’. Combined with encouraging end-of-journey scores, rewards packages, driver leagues and the Lightfoot app, which provides weekly competitions for Elite Drivers to enter, Lightfoot is helping to create a new breed of safe and efficient drivers on our roads.
