MobileLutions announced today, a new release of the accident avoidance software, MobiLoc, which prevents distracted driving. MobiLoc 2.3, now incorporates a proprietary method for protecting the severe impact GPS has on a phone’s battery while still protecting the customer from the dangers of distracted driving. The new program significantly reduces the use of the battery on Blackberry and Android devices, while it makes the phone even more responsive to seeing a change in speed.

Larry Eppard, MobileLutions co-founder, says, “This is a critical upgrade to the MobiLoc customer. Our product is designed for a mobile workforce and an issue in using GPS technology is heavy than normal battery use. We have a number of potential customers sitting on the sidelines because their mobile workforce do not always have a way to immediately charge their phones. So we went to work and found a way, with our method, where the battery will not be significantly impacted by the use of MobiLoc, and actually improved the ability to protect the driver from distracted driving.”

Many firms believe a distracted driving solution needs to be implemented to protect their employee's, their company and the public. If the phone has to be charged on a constant basis, it prevents the mobile workforce from adopting the distracted driving technology. With this release of software, when the phone is not moving in a vehicle, MobiLoc can detect the condition through a proprietary solution and be suspended until back in a vehicle and moving. No hardware is required in the vehicle.

The dangers of driving and using a cell phone continue, firms are being held liable for their employees actions and cases continue to move to the front of the legal process. With this release of software another barrier has been removed from using MobiLoc. With a cost of pennies a day per phone, there is absolutely no reason not to control your employee's phones, especially if you provide the phone and/or the vehicle they are in.

The upgraded software is being made available immediately to all Blackberry and Android customers that have previously purchased the MobiLoc solution.

MobileLutions is a leader in providing software solutions to prevent distracted driving accidents and reducing corporate exposure due to this risk. The MobiLoc solution is built to enforce and monitor company level policies across the organization for standard enforcement of the policies on the Android, Blackberry and iPhone devices. MobileLutions is the only provider of this service having an iPhone solution.
