eDriving Partners with Innovation Group to Provide Digital Driver Risk Management Solutions in Australasia
Cape May, New Jersey – February 24, 2021 – eDrivingSM, a leading global provider of digital driver risk management programs, has announced a new partnership with Innovation Group to help organizations in Australia and New Zealand reduce driver* risk.
Innovation Group delivers transformational expertise to the world’s leading insurers, brokers, fleet managers and automotive manufacturers. As a result of the new partnership, Innovation Group will provide fleet operators and owners with access to eDriving’s award-winning driver risk management solution, Mentor by eDrivingSM ,that helps organizations around the world reduce collisions, injuries, incidents and license violations/infractions among those who drive for work purposes, and helps ensure that every driver returns home safely to their loved ones at the end of each day.
“Our main aim is to minimize the impact of on-road incidents and reduce vehicle down-time. But, more than that, we are committed to pre-empting collisions and reducing driver risk,” said Drew Schnehage, Managing Director at Innovation Group Australia. “The partnership will allow us to offer value-added solutions to the fleet industry that enable improved driver behavior and risk management.”
eDriving’s Mentor app uses the telematic sensors in iOS and Android smartphones to collect and analyze data on the driving behaviors most predictive of risk. These include Acceleration, Braking, Cornering, Speeding, and Phone Distraction, one of the biggest threats to road safety today.
Driver on-road performance is converted into an individual FICO® Safe Driving Score, which has been validated to predict the likelihood of a driver being involved in a collision.
Personalized insights are provided to drivers after each trip, showing both positive and negative driving events, and, for the driver’s review only, exactly where they occurred. Additionally, engaging, interactive micro-training modules are delivered directly to the driver in-app to help promptly remediate identified risky behaviors and reduce risk. Crucially, drivers can designate trips as “business”, “passenger” or “personal”, ensuring that only business trips are analyzed by the program.
Mentor will be offered to Innovation Group clients within eDriving’s Crash-Free Culture® program, a 5-stage comprehensive program that starts with embracing safety as a strategic imperative and building out a safety culture accordingly.
“We are excited to be partnering with Innovation Group to deliver Mentor to the Australasian market,” said Ed Dubens, Founder/CEO of eDriving. “We’re thrilled that Innovation Group is as passionate as we are about ensuring those who drive for work purposes return home safely every day, with the knowledge that their safe driving program not only prioritizes their safety, but their privacy too, by adhering to global privacy best practice as well as local and national regulations. And, with recent analysis confirming Mentor’s ability to reduce driver risk, fleet operators can be confident of seeing an improvement in driving behaviors and a reduction in risk within just six months.”
