Cape May, New Jersey – [November 17, 2021] – eDrivingSM, a Solera company, and leading global provider of digital driver risk management solutions, has been awarded a 2021 Prince Michael International Road Safety Award.
In a letter addressed from Kensington Palace to eDriving, His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent wrote: “I have been impressed by the valuable work your team at eDriving does to reduce risk, notably to those who drive for work. It is especially noteworthy to see how the company is able to develop and adapt programs for use in several different countries. Most impressive is the way in which you apply sound science to underpin your innovations.”
eDriving was selected for the award for its innovative digital driver safety app, MentorSM.
“We are honored and privileged to receive this Prince Michael Award during our 25th year of successful driver risk management,” said Ed Dubens, CEO/Founder of eDriving. “Since its launch, Mentor has helped organizations globally to improve driving behaviors of those who drive for work purposes, and analysis conducted last year confirmed Mentor’s ability to reduce dangerous driving events including speeding and distraction, and change driving behavior for the better, for the long-term. This award is incredible recognition of the ongoing efforts of our whole team, as well as those of our clients and partners worldwide.”
eDriving’s Mentor app is a smartphone-based digital driver safety program that identifies driver risk using a validated FICO® Safe Driving Score, and remediates risky behavior with training, coaching and gamification. Among other features, Mentor also incorporates an eco-driving indicator, plus Emergency Response Services, including Automatic Crash Detection and Personal SOS features powered by Sfara and Bosch, extending eDriving’s commitment to keeping drivers safe 24×7. Its 2020 analysis coinciding with 1.5 billion Mentor miles driven concluded that high-risk drivers achieved a 32-38% improvement in their FICO® Safe Driving Scores over six and 15 months, respectively, while reducing speeding events by 71% and 82% and distraction events by 39% and 57% over the same time frames.
As with all eDriving programs and tools, Mentor operates within a highly secure, privacy-first environment, in which only driver data required for risk management is shared with the manager. No location data or individual trip data is visible beyond the driver.
