With the right video technology, fleet managers can access crucial information regarding drivers that they would otherwise not be privy to, such as specific driving skills and areas that require improvement. In addition to aiding recruiting and retention efforts, video data can be leveraged to provide personalized coaching, leading to more skilled and confident drivers.
