CAPE MAY, N.J., Feb. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- With approximately 151,000 people killed in road crashes every year, India has the highest number of traffic fatalities in the world. Currently, the country is observing "National Road Safety Month" (January 18 to February 17), and the importance of a commitment to road safety was recently highlighted by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing the nation in his show "Mann Ki Baat".
As a result of the new partnership, GSM, a pioneer in road safety training, will provide its clients with access to eDriving's award-winning driver risk management solutions that help organizations around the world reduce collisions and injuries among those who drive for work purposes, and help ensure that every driver returns home safely to their loved ones at the end of each day.
"With this partnership we want to support organizations that care for their employees and ensure that they go back to their homes safely, as well as contribute towards making India's roads safer by practicing the tenets of safe driving. The unique combination of technology-driven driver safety solutions, and an in-depth understanding of Indian driving/driver psychology, culture and networking with stakeholders makes this partnership the beginning of a new era in the digitization of driver risk management in India," said B K Sethu Madhavan, CEO of GSM.
eDriving's Mentor by eDriving app uses the telematic sensors in iOS and Android smartphones to collect and analyze data on the driving behaviors most predictive of risk. These include Acceleration, Braking, Cornering, Speeding, and Phone Distraction, one of the biggest threats to road safety today.
Driver on-road performance is converted into an individual FICO® Safe Driving Score, which has been validated to predict the likelihood of a driver being involved in a collision. Personalized insights are provided to drivers after each trip, showing both positive and negative driving events, and, for the driver's review only, exactly where they occurred. Additionally, engaging, interactive micro-training modules are delivered directly to the driver in-app to help promptly remediate identified risky behaviors and reduce risk.
Mentor will be offered to GSM clients within eDriving's Crash-Free Culture® program, a 5-stage comprehensive program that starts with embracing safety as a strategic imperative and building out a safety culture accordingly.
"As the importance of driver safety is recognized during National Road Safety Month in India, this is the ideal opportunity for organizations with at-work drivers and riders to evaluate their approach to managing road safety," said Ed Dubens, Founder/CEO of eDriving. "We're delighted to launch this partnership with GSM to help more organizations access digital driver risk management solutions that will help them identify and reduce driver risk."
