Are your employees driving safely and courteously or are they road terrors? Your drivers are viewed as ambassadors for your brand and they play a key role in your vehicle insurance and repair costs, so it is important for you to know how well they are doing. Certainly on-board vehicle telemetry gives you information on their activity, but does it really tell you everything you need to know?
Improving road safety
To further assist with road safety, we have recently expanded our Windshieldink license plate messaging platform with our new online service Windshieldink Fleeter. Fleeter enables fleet operators to use our existing messaging platform to facilitate public feedback on driver performance. It’s an important part of our goal of improving road safety.
Windshieldink is a mobile vehicle messaging platform launched in late 2016 and allows anyone to make themselves reachable via their license plate number should an issue arise with their vehicle. With Windshieldink, there is no excuse why you cannot be contacted if your car is going to be towed or if your car alarm is going off.
Up until now, fleet operators are able to get public feedback on their drivers by displaying a 1-800 “How’s My Driving” phone number on the back of the vehicle. Windshieldink modernizes this concept by using mobile messaging technology. With Windshieldink, calling a 1-800 number is no longer necessary, alleviating the public’s concerns about time-consuming phone calls, call display, and issues with identifying the correct vehicle.
When a fleet operator registers their license plates with Windshieldink, anyone can email the company about a specific vehicle simply by using our free mobile app and the vehicle license plate number. Specifically, the message sender identifies the exact vehicle and can also attach a GPS coordinate in their message if they need to identify the location.
By making it faster and easier for the public to contact fleet operators, we hope that improving fleet safety will become as commonplace to the public as it is to the fleet operators themselves. For less than the price of a cup of coffee, any vehicle with a license plate can be registered in our online system on a monthly basis.
Try out Fleeter for free
Fleet operators can subscribe to our 14-day free trial subscription to see for themselves how simple it is to register and manage fleet license plates with Windshieldink Fleeter.
For our mobile app users, the addition of Windshieldink Fleeter to the user community does not result in any changes to the functionality of the app. When a license plate is entered in the app, our verification step will check to confirm if that fleet vehicle is registered and by what company.
We are always looking to the future and will continue to move forward and expand with even more great services. We’re driven by our philosophy of growing to be the most useful app for vehicle owners in the world and committed to bringing innovative solutions to drivers everywhere.
Windshieldink is available on the App Store and in Google Play. It’s free to download, free to register and free to send messages to other registered vehicle owners! Make sure you never miss out on important messages regarding your vehicle again!
