WAXIE Sanitary Supply
Why WAXIE turned to the SmartDrive® Video-Based Safety Program
WAXIE is an industry leader in the distribution of quality cleaning chemicals, equipment, disposables, and accessories to the building service contractor, school, hospitality, healthcare, military, government, industrial, and retail markets. Based in San Diego, the company consists of over 800 dedicated professionals.
WAXIE drivers encounter varying environments along their routes. The company needed a safety system that would be versatile enough to address the driver and their specific driving environment—identifying attentiveness and drowsy driving for over-the-road situations, and protection from not-at-fault claims in congested, urban driving.
Why the SmartDrive Open and Configurable platform is the Smart Choice for WAXIE
WAXIE is benefiting from the SmartDrive open platform and configurable approach, which offers more flexibility and a clear picture of what happened on the road. By leveraging the platform’s extended recording capability, beyond the 20-second clip, the company can capture more information around incidents, while gaining deeper insights into compliance and safety issues. This complements the organization’s ‘1-800’ call-in line, enabling them to investigate complaints, better identify coaching opportunities and prevent future situations from recurring.
