Cellcontrol’s technology will improve fleet safety, keeping the New York beverage company’s employees and other motorists safe.


At DeCrescente, we know that distracted driving is a huge safety issue for everyone on Upstate New York’s roads. Our goal is to keep our employees and the communities we serve safe.

DeCrescente, a family owned and operated beverage distribution company, announces that it has partnered with the world’s leading distracted driving solution, Cellcontrol to further enforce its fleet safety policies and bring employees home safe each day. The beverage distributor installed Cellcontrol’s platform in all of its company-owned vehicles and on employee mobile devices to prevent distracted driving by disabling talk, text and browsing capabilities while a DeCrescente truck is in motion.

The easy-to-use Cellcontrol solution takes less than a minute per vehicle to install and activate, is simple to administer, and provides real-time, accurate exception and trend reporting to fleet managers in order to enforce a company’s cellphone policy.

DeCrescente installed Cellcontrol’s fleet solution in each truck and set a customized mobile device policy for its drivers. Now, DeCrescente’s zero tolerance distracted driving policy can be properly enforced with Cellcontrol’s signaling technology, which will accurately defer email, text and other unauthorized phone once the vehicle is set in motion.

“At DeCrescente, we know that distracted driving is a huge safety issue for everyone on Upstate New York’s roads. Our goal is to keep our employees and the communities we serve safe,” said Tom Turcotte, vice president of operations at DeCrescente. “We chose Cellcontrol because of its reliability, accuracy and value. We’re proud to take a stand against distracted driving and keep our local roadways safe.”

“By deploying Cellcontrol’s technology in its service fleet beverage distribution vehicles, DeCrescente is truly leading the beverage industry in the fight against device distraction,” said Rob Guba, CEO of Cellcontrol. “We are proud to call them a customer and help keep their drivers, assets and community safe.”
