Huddersfield, UK – [21 October, 2021] – eDrivingSM, a Solera company, and leading global provider of digital driver risk management solutions, has been named the winner of the Risk Management Award and Safety Award at the 2021 Business Car Awards.
The Business Car Awards have recognised excellence in the automotive fleet sector for more than a decade. They have identified the best cars that fleets should be running, highlighted innovation and fleet expertise among suppliers, as well as rewarding excellence among fleet operators.
The awards are judged by an experienced panel comprising independent experts in the automotive and fleet arenas, ensuring entrants are evaluated by professionals with many decades of knowledge and insight between them.
“We are thrilled to have been recognised again at the Business Car Awards,” said Ed Dubens, CEO/Founder of eDriving. “In the last 12 months our smartphone-based driver safety programme, Mentor, has evolved to include some game-changing new features including emergency response services for drivers, and it’s fantastic to see that such innovations are garnering continued industry recognition for the programme.”
