Optimising for efficiency with Perform

Perform provides you with a detailed overview of your fleet’s operational data. It allows you to determine where mileage needs to be increased. In this way, you optimise the performance of your fleet and sustainably reduce fuel costs, CO2 emissions and the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Perform facilitates a neutral and comparable performance assessment of your drivers and evaluates the performance of the vehicle based on the retrieved data, ensuring the most objective view possible. The data provides conclusions about wear and tear on the vehicle and can also be used in driver training to increase economic driving. In addition, the vehicle configuration suitable for the intended use can be specified on the basis of real trip data.

Extensive performance analysis

Handling and trip data is collected, analysed and evaluated, which enables you to objectively assess vehicles and drivers in order to increase efficiency and improve driving safety.

Sustainable cost savings

Extensive analysis data enables a noticeably more efficient driving style and optimum vehicle utilisation – consequently, both fuel costs and the total cost of ownership (TCO) of your vehicle fleet are reduced.

Data availability virtually in real-time

Thanks to direct access to the vehicle’s CAN bus, you can retrieve and analyse the data virtually in real-time.


Relevant consumption information for profitability analysis

Via a direct connection to the vehicle’s CAN bus, Perform collects all information on individual trips and operations in real-time.

The following data, among others, can be collected
  • Fuel consumption
  • Speed
  • Use of the cruise control system
  • Downtime
  • CO2 emissions
  • Use of the braking systems
  • Gear changes
  • Speed ranges

Using this data, you can accurately assess driving styles and identify the potential for improving efficiency. For example, you can identify sections where a speed over 85 km/h was driven or where the accelerator was operated despite active cruise control. Driving more efficiently will cut fuel consumption. This reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the fleet and has a positive effect on company profit.

In addition, it is possible to check whether a vehicle is correctly configured for its area of application or to optimise regularly driven routes taking into consideration the traffic volume.

Objective evaluation for fostering ongoing driver development

Perform calculates an overall score for vehicle and driver performance, combined with the level of operational difficulty. The level of operational difficulty is calculated on the basis of various parameters and cannot be influenced by the driver.


Driving style analysis and evaluation enable a largely objective and comparable view and also increase the driver’s motivation to optimise their driving style. Potential for further development of a driver can be identified. Operational data can even be used during driver training, as all data can be downloaded as PDF, XLS or CSV.

For MAN drivers: Ratings can be made available to the driver via the MAN Driver App. To make this possible, the fleet manager has to invite the driver, who has to register on the RIO platform and install the corresponding app on his smartphone. The MAN Driver App is available via Google Play Store and Apple App Store.


Automatic reporting on driver and fleet performance

Perform offers the possibility to automatically provide predefined reports for a certain time period. These reports offer insights into the driving style and performance in comparison to other drivers as well as a clear overview compared to the previous period. The respective operating conditions, such as traffic and route profile, are taken into account. In this way, deductions can be made and driving style and operation can be adapted to improve efficiency.


Perform API – Integrate Perform data into your main system

If you often use different systems to transfer and map different data, not only is this very time-consuming, but you can also lose track of what’s going on. MAN DigitalServices has the ideal solution for you in the form of Perform API:

Would you like to integrate Perform data into your processes and user interface? Want to define your own efficiency KPIs and ratings? As an example, the Perform API allows you to integrate the data you have collected into a third-party system.

In addition to a wide range of operating data, such as fuel consumption, speed, downtimes and CO2 emission, Perform also provides driver ratings and data on operational difficulty (traffic, road types, environmental data, elevation profile). The Perform API shows you all the data you need on just one platform.

The feature is included in the price of a Perform booking.

Here’s how it works

The Perform data is connected to your preferred system via a standardised interface (API).

There are various options for how you can use/integrate this interface:

  1. You can request the access data directly via this form.
  2. You can request connections to partner systems that are already connected in the Marketplace.
  3. If you don’t have a partner connection yet, please contact our partner management.

You will find a description of the Perform interface in OpenAPI format here.

MAN Driver App

Breakdown? Always an unwelcome break. So, whenever quick support is needed, the MAN DriverApp is there to help. For example with the emergency breakdown call. Or with a damage report. It networks driver, fleet manager and workshop and shows the way to the nearest MAN dealership. But our MAN DriverApp supports MAN drivers not only in an emergency. Moreover, it offers – in line with the vehicle and its current use – a wide range of additional functions to ease the driver’s daily routine.
