eDriving Helps Fleets Reduce Eco Impact with NEW EcoDrive Powered by Greater Than Feature in its Driver Safety & Sustainability Application, Mentor
Cape May Court House, New Jersey, USA / Stockholm, Sweden / June 15, 2023: eDrivingSM, a Solera company and leading global provider of digital driver risk management solutions, today announced the global availability of its EcoDrive feature powered by Greater Than (GREAT:ST), a global provider of technology that converts GPS data into powerful insights and driver scores. The integration of EcoDrive into eDriving’s award-winning digital driver safety app, MentorSM, will enable eDriving to further support its global clients in achieving their safety AND sustainability goals.
Revolutionizing driver risk management for over 25 years, eDriving is the trusted partner of choice for many of the world’s largest sales, service, and delivery fleets, supporting over two million drivers in 125 countries with award-winning digital driver risk management solutions. Its smartphone-based Mentor program identifies and remediates drivers’ risky habits behind the wheel with scoring, training, coaching, and gamification, achieving up to an 89% reduction in risky driver behavior over 18 months.
The integration of Greater Than’s AI-based technology extends Mentor’s value proposition from a comprehensive driver safety solution to a holistic driver safety AND sustainability solution. The optional EcoDrive enhancement to Mentor empowers organizations to help drivers reduce their CO2 emissions/EV battery consumption while ensuring their safe return home each day. This strategic step elevates Mentor’s sustainability benefits by enabling reduction of carbon emissions and EV battery consumption of up to 20%. In addition, EcoDrive facilitates more accurate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting with harmonized data on an organization’s CO2 savings.
“We are absolutely thrilled to see our customers embracing this new offering so quickly, with deployments of EcoDrive already beginning around the world. Our health- and safety-minded customers are keen to take ownership of their climate impact and contribute to their organizations’ ESG initiatives by quantifying and reporting on their sustainability efforts,” said Ed Dubens, CEO/Founder of eDriving. “By helping fleet drivers understand the impact of their driving on the environment, Mentor and EcoDrive can help them evolve to more eco-friendly behaviors.”
Mentor’s EcoDrive powered by Greater Than leverages Greater Than’s unique pattern-AI technology trained since 2004, using data from over 106 countries and 1,600 cities. This technology conducts real-time driving analysis to calculate CO2 emissions/EV battery consumption savings per individual driver after each trip. Providing a uniform measure of environmental impact, EcoDrive enables fair, transparent, unbiased evaluation of individual drivers’ eco performance. Drivers will be able to see their eco impact rating following each trip on their Mentor dashboard, helping them keep sustainability goals top of mind.
“We are delighted to provide the AI analysis to power this exciting feature in Mentor by eDriving. It’s becoming more important, mandatory in some cases, for companies to measure and report on their ESG activities. And, of course, it’s also about doing the right thing for the planet. We’re proud that our technology empowers eDriving’s customers with previously unseen climate impact insights to help them elevate their eco efforts,” said Liselott Johansson, CEO, Greater Than.
EcoDrive powered by Greater Than is available globally in eDriving’s flagship Mentor business solution, available for fleets of all sizes and vehicle types.
