inthinc Technology Proves Driver Safety and Fleet Savings Go Hand-in-Hand
SALT LAKE CITY - 04/12/2012 - inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global telematics company centered on fleet management and driver safety solutions, is proving a direct correlation exists between driver habits and fleet operational cost savings. With inthinc waySmart™ - the most comprehensive solution designed to improve driver safety, fleet management and compliance - fleet owners are able to increase fuel efficiency on average by 20 percent, reduce maintenance costs by 20 percent and avoid costly penalties and fines.
"Fleet owners from all over the globe have turned to inthinc for a fleet management solution that will not only save lives, but improve their bottom line as well," said Todd Follmer, inthinc CEO. "With data collected from tens-of-thousands of vehicles using our technology for the past six years, we have proven to dramatically improve driving behavior, leading to fewer crashes, better fuel economy and safer, more productive drivers."
AAA reports that accident costs amount to over 164 billion dollars per year. To avoid incurring collision costs, inthinc technology offers the only solution that provides real-time in-cab verbal alerts to drivers when speeding, idling, driving aggressively or not wearing a seat belt. By mentoring drivers into developing safer driving habits, fleet managers can expect a reduction in speeding and aggressive driving of more than 86 percent, leading to greater fuel efficiency and significantly lower rate of crashes.
"While working for 34 years at one of the largest mining companies in the world, we achieved a 77 percent reduction in driver incidents in one year after installing inthinc technology across our fleets," said Bruce Huber, newly named vice president of safety at inthinc. "By improving driver behavior, we were not only able to protect the lives of our drivers, but save money on fuel and maintenance costs as well."
With inthinc waySmart, fleet managers can also monitor fleet vehicles and identify areas to reduce operational costs. Through satellite and cellular based tracking, managers can monitor trips taken and vehicle MPG, ultimately eliminating unauthorized trips and improving company productivity.
