Market research indicated that there was a need for technology to reduce risk related to unsafe driving practices
Edmonton, AB (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
Safefreight Technology today introduced a new fleet management software and system that focuses on improving traffic safety and reducing accident risk.
The new SmartFleet GPS fleet management system also incorporates a vehicle mounted GPS tracking device with a unique accelerometer that accurately measures g-force and communicates fleet safety alerts to fleet managers when unsafe driving events occur. An optional, in-cab mounted mentoring device can also be incorporated to let drivers know when they've exceeded safe driving thresholds and scores their driving skill level at the end of each trip.
"Market research indicated that there was a need for technology to reduce risk related to unsafe driving practices," says Safefreight CEO Curtis Serna. "We are pleased to offer this technology under exclusive license, which was developed in consultation with the Israeli Defence Forces and proven by Fortune 500 companies in Europe. It is unique to North America," added Serna.
SmartFleet® Manager is a fleet management software that offers real time visibility of fleet operations through a Safefreight hosted internet application. Critical location and condition information is gathered through a vehicle-mounted device, communicated wirelessly, and served to Safefreight's customers through this vehicle to-internet application. Information can be accessed on-demand from any internet enabled computer or device - any time, from anywhere in the world.
Through the implementation of this new driver safety and GPS fleetmanagement system, businesses can also expect to:
- Decrease number of accidents
- Reduce fuel consumption
- Cut vehicle downtime
- Lengthen the lifetime of tires, brakes sets, clutches and gears
