“Our team—consisting of customer success professionals, safety specialists, video analysis experts and engineers—is keenly focused on innovation and servicing our customers unlike anyone else in the transportation and logistics industry,” said Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. “Our mantra is to put customers first and continue to offer the best-in-class solutions. Our team does not rest until our customers get the results we promised. This report card is a testament to the impact SmartDrive’s video-based safety program continues to have on customers and we plan to use the findings as a benchmark for SmartDrive moving forward.”

“SmartDrive consistently captures risky driving performance and provides insights that enable fleets to coach drivers on their performance, causing the frequency of collisions to be reduced—it’s what our analytics prove every day,” said Slaven Sljivar, vice president of analytics at SmartDrive. “Our customers typically reduce collisions by 8.2 percent for every 10 percent reduction in their SmartDrive safety score and across the fleet, they are achieving a reduction in their collision frequency by up to 70 percent.
