No obligation trial allows fleets to experience real-time results

960 640 Stuart O'Brien

Lightfoot, leading provider of in-cab driver engagement and rewards technology, is offering commercial fleets of over 50 vehicles the opportunity to trial its game-changing fleet management software with no cost and no commitment.

The unique Lightfoot trial is delivered over a period of several weeks, with drivers first using the Lightfoot devices in blind mode – where they’re simply collecting data on how the vehicles are driven without any driver interaction – the benchmark. For the second half of the trial, the in-cab devices are switched to live mode, which is when they come to life and start providing real-time feedback and alerts scoring drivers and rewarding them based on their performance.

The improvements made during the live phase of the trial can be seen in the comprehensive ROI report provided at the end, with reductions in fuel expenditure, vehicle wear and tear, carbon emissions, and accident rates among the projected savings.

Lightfoot launches new Live Overspeed Alerts feature

960 640 Stuart O'Brien

Driver coaching and rewards platform provider Lightfoot has unveiled a new development for its fleet management package – the Live Overspeed Alerts feature.

Available to add on to the existing Lightfoot solution, this feature targets the problem of speeding within fleets, helping to prevent approximately 80% of incidents. It does this by alerting drivers whenever they travel over the speed limit through a series of audible and visual warnings via the Lightfoot dashboard device. This helps raise awareness in drivers of how fast they’re travelling whilst they’re on the road, giving them the ability to correct their driving in real-time and prevent the speeding event from occurring.

Speeding remains one of the most prevalent motoring offences in the UK, and accounts for around 13% of all accidents on Britain’s roads. For fleets, it brings with it the added disadvantages of increased wear and tear on the vehicles and the risk of damage to brand reputation if drivers are repeatedly caught travelling at illegal and unsafe speeds. It’s clear that more needs to be done to curb speeding incidents in commercial vehicles, and this latest development from Lightfoot is a great example of the tools that are available to help fleets create safer, more responsible drivers.

The case for decarbonising existing fleet vehicles

960 640 Stuart O'Brien

Lightfoot have launched their latest video titled ‘Doing Nothing Is Not An Option’, the video makes the case for actively decarbonising existing ICE vehicles within fleets whilst concurrently planning for the electric future.

Whilst the transition to EVs is the accepted long-term solution for the fleet industry, the reality is that the supply of electric vehicles is not currently available for an all-out adoption of EV fleets, and many fleets simply do not have the resources or infrastructure to go fully electric today.

Instead of making future plans to tackle decarbonisation solely through the eventual replacement of ICE vehicles with EVs, industry-leading green-tech provider Lightfoot argues that fleets should instead be looking to their existing fleet vehicles to reduce emissions, reduce fuel consumption, and take action now to protect the planet.

The key EV challenges facing the fleet industry

960 640 Stuart O'Brien

With less than a decade to go until the sales of all new petrol and diesel cars, vans, and pickups are banned in the UK, the pressure is very much on for fleet operators to make a start in transitioning their fleets to electric vehicles (EVs).

Planning and preparing for the adoption of electric vehicles within a fleet is not without its challenges. It’s a complex issue with wide-ranging implications, from fleet finance and maintenance to national infrastructure and supply chains.

With this in mind, Lightfoot set about identifying the key challenges facing UK fleets when it comes to switching to EVs by launching a survey where fleet operators could share their thoughts.
