Research has shown that the key to sustained behavior change behind the wheel is effective engagement with a driver as soon as possible after a collision to review what happened, how it happened and how the circumstances could be avoided in the future. Analysis also shows that if an organization can start the claims process with their insurance partner in under 30 days, the total claims cost can be reduced by up to 40 percent. DER from eDriving makes both these outcomes possible through completion of a single report directly from Mentor.
Improved causation analysis. Recalling specific details begins to diminish within a few minutes after drivers leave the scene of a crash/incident. Understanding the root cause requires accurate facts. Delays in completing accident report forms can be minimized by the use of a mobile reporting device at the accident scene.
Connected professional coaching. DER information flows directly to our Professional Coaching process. eDriving’s experienced coaches use this information to help drivers understand there is almost always something you can do to help prevent a crash even if the other driver involved is at fault.
Integrated risk scoring. Each Driver Event Report flows directly into eDriving’s DriverINDEX® where it is scored and aggregated with other driver events.
Faster repair & claims processing. DER’s electronic transfer of information and photographs from the accident scene helps speed vehicle repair and claims processing, minimizing vehicle down time and reducing overall claims cost.
Improved benchmarking and analytics. True benchmarking measures year-over-year experience but can be hampered by inaccurate crash descriptions and codes. DER helps reduce “data clean-up work” usually associated with the benchmarking exercise.
Driver Event Reporting is offered as a standalone app, DER by eDriving, available for download on both Apple and Android devices, and is incorporated as a feature in eDriving’s award-winning, smartphone-based driver behavior improvement program, Mentor by eDrivingSM.
