MiX Journey Management

Safe and efficient, from start to finish

If you’ve ever had to contend with manual journey management planning, then you’ll know how tedious and error-prone it can be. MiX Journey Management offers an easy-to-use electronic alternative to paper-based systems that ensures all risks relating to journeys are readily visible to decision makers when it matters most.

MiX Journey Management suits fleet operators across diverse industries, and is especially ideal for those with large fleets of vehicles that travel long distances and carry passengers or cargo.

Not only does MiX Journey Management help deal with the major issue of risk exposure, but it improves safety as well as the quality of customer service, while ensuring compliance.

All things considered

MiX Journey Management comprises a wholly online process incorporating journey requests, journey approvals and journey monitoring. It is also the first journey risk management system to integrate with a premium fleet management solution, making it a unique and valuable offering.

Fully integrated

MiX Journey Management is an extension to MiX Fleet Manager Premium and MiX SafeDrive, making it the first journey risk management system to integrate with a premium fleet management solution.

Journey requests and approvals

Planned journeys are captured into the system, associated risks relating to the driver, environment and asset are identified, and a risk rating of the journey is calculated. Based on the risk rating, the journey follows a flexible approval workflow management process.

Journey monitoring

MiX’s vehicle tracking systems enable journeys and vehicles to be automatically monitored, from the initial stages of planning through to approval and dispatch. Exceptions are generated by the system and real-time notifications are then sent to operations staff.

Real-time notifications

MiX Telematics’s software has the ability to issue exception-based notifications like deviation from a route plan, progress and status updates so that operations staff are immediately notified while a journey is underway and being monitored. A consolidated landing page of journey activity and status makes light work for operations staff.

Road hazard assessment

The solution enables electronic road hazard assessment to be conducted by approved route assessors. Roads are checked for potential hazards like roadworks, weight limitations and height restrictions ahead of a journey. The information is then stored and used for future journeys following the same route.

Static compliance checks

MiX Journey Management enables various static compliance checks to take place. These involve drivers (e.g. licensing and certification), passengers (e.g. seatbelt allocation per vehicle) and cargo (e.g. is the vehicle certified to carry the cargo in question?).

Robust reporting

Journey management data can be put to good use for the purpose of Key Performance Indicator (KPI) reporting. For example, managers can assess the number of journeys in a month, how many were approved and by whom, how many were deemed high-risk and how many were completed as planned. Cube technology also enables the visualization of data as opposed to using static reports.
