GO TALK is a driver awareness tool that transforms the way driver coaching happens behind the wheel by providing real-time verbal feedback to the driver, increasing safety and minimising risk.
Combining GPS tracking, accelerometer and diagnostic data, and other manager programmable data including time of day and location zones, GO TALK delivers spoken instructions to the driver from inside the vehicle. GO TALK can issue coaching notifications to drivers for events such as: driving with a seat belt unfastened, entering a restricted area, driving excessive hours or out of province, excessive idling, speeding, harsh braking, and other risky driving behaviours.
How does GO TALK work?
Whenever a driver violates a rule that was set by the fleet manager it “Speaks” to the driver, describing exactly what was done wrong. Whiles some rules come with pre-set alerts, managers can also create their own to have highly customized messages spoken to the driver.
The Go Talk gives us the commitment to Safety and Driver Feedback. The Go Talk provides real-time spoken alerts to drivers using test-to-speech based on predefined rules.
Any rules which are used for a GO device can be used with the Go Talk. Immediate feedback is given to the driver.
Who should use this?
GO TALK is the perfect solution for any fleet that wants to give more information to their drivers, regarding their driving behaviours. This will empower drivers with helpful, real-time feedback and will allow them to improve their behaviours over time.
