SAN DIEGO, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartDrive Systems, a leader in driving performance solutions that reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency, today announced the latest release of its pioneering video-analytics platform and safety program. The new release sets the highest standard for video safety programs industry wide with first-of-their-kind enhancements to video capture and delivery, video coaching process, custom policy configurations and driver performance analytics. The new capabilities target high priority areas for fleets and deliver on top requests from existing customers, providing new levels of productivity and protection with an even faster ROI.
"Our singular focus is helping fleets be safer and more successful with video analytics. With this new release, SmartDrive delivers innovation that offers more—more protection, more insight, more access and more impact to a fleet's bottom line," said Steve Mitgang, SmartDrive CEO. "We believe there has never been a better time to add video safety from SmartDrive. Whether by reducing collision frequency, exonerating drivers, enforcing compliance procedures or lowering fuel costs, video with robust transportation intelligence is a game-changer for fleets everywhere." Unlike other solutions, accessing the new SmartDrive capabilities does not require a costly "rip and replace" of existing hardware and back-end systems. Leveraging the platform's open, extensible architecture, all of the enhancements are available to customers within their existing solution footprint, which is further proof of the durability of the financial investment made with SmartDrive. As fleets evaluate solutions, driving adoption, accelerating time-to-insight, and expanding the ways that video can impact operational performance are important considerations that are rising to the top of their buying criteria. This new release builds on best-in-class usability and industry first protection to deliver additional, measurable value to customers.
