Solution can help Geotab customers prevent employee phone use while driving
San Jose, CA, and Toronto – October 26, 2020 – LifeSaver Mobile, a leading provider of fleet safety software, today announced the availability of its LifeSaver Mobile Add-In on the Geotab Marketplace, a go-to source for top organizations seeking to better manage their fleets. Through this integration, Geotab customers will be able to access the LifeSaver Fleet Portal from within their MyGeotab platform to deploy and configure the LifeSaver driver solution and report on its usage and compliance.
According to many auto insurers, phone distraction is one of the leading causes of commercial vehicle crashes. With the rising frequency and severity of auto insurance claims by fleet operators, insurance coverage is becoming less affordable each year for many fleets. According to Work Truck Magazine, work-related collisions account for 40 percent of all driving crashes, and the National Safety Council estimates that at least 27 percent of all crashes are directly related to phone distraction.
LifeSaver Mobile’s software-only solution (no hardware required) uses real-time intervention to help proactively change driver behavior and reduce phone distraction. The software consists of a mobile application that is deployed to every employee’s phone. Each employee’s app is paired to the employer’s fleet portal, which is used by the company’s managers to configure the app’s behavior (hours, violations, scoring) and to report on its usage and compliance.
“Our interest in joining the Geotab Marketplace was confirmed by the strong positive responses we received from Geotab Resellers and customers at the Geotab Connect 2020 conference,” said Ted Chen, Co-Founder, LifeSaver Mobile. “With an increased priority on fleet safety these days, many businesses are looking for a simple way to help prevent employee phone use while driving. Our over-the-air, no-touch deployment, which can be managed through our integration with the MyGeotab platform, is a perfect complement to an existing Geotab deployment.”
