According to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, texting or typing on a phone while driving increases the risk of crashing up to 23 times. Employees who use mobile phones to text, email, and browse the web while driving not only are a danger to themselves but also pose a significant risk and liability to their employers.
To address this problem, Zonar, a provider of electronic fleet inspection, tracking, and operations solutions, is working with ZoomSafer to offer a new product to increase safety for commercial, public and private fleets, and the traveling public. This new solution integrates Zonar's fleet management technologies with ZoomSafer's FleetSafer policy management solutions to help customers manage employee cell phone use while driving.
FleetSafer Mobile is software for BlackBerry and Android smartphones that automatically prevents texting, emailing, and browsing while driving to enable fleets to proactively enforce employee mobile phone use policies. FleetSafer Vision is a cloud-based analytics service that combines telematics data with details of employee mobile phone use to help fleets monitor risky driver behavior.
Zonar provides a vehicle telematics system that provides real-time vehicle location and captures data from the vehicle's engine including speed, fuel efficiency, and fault codes. This data is being integrated with FleetSafer solutions to provide a complete picture of and tools to manage driver behavior.
