21st Century: Driver engagement is key to enhancing passenger comfort 21st Century has been undertaking a series of “trainthe trainer” events to support its French customers, who utilise the technology integrator’s EcoManager telematics solution under the KonfortManager brand. By recording key events during journeys, including harsh acceleration, excessive breaking and G-force when cornering, the system gives instant feedback on driving style via the cab-mounted driver display, and can also be accessed via 21st Century Technology’s web-based platform, enabling drivers and depot managers alike to check their results over fixed periods with predefined levels of access. 21st Century maintains that the most effective method of obtaining long term improvements in passenger comfort is to create experts within the depot itself. The partnership of KonfortManager collated data and trainer know-how has seen some depots cut fuel usage, increase passenger comfort and reduce emissions. /FIND OUT MORE www.21stplc.com Improve safety, comfort and tackle bogus claims with Centrad Centrad has a range of highspecification mobile digital video recorders, which come with GPS tracking and a comprehensive two-year warranty as standard.
