CAM: Solution is a proven global success
Leading fleet driver risk management company DriveCam have expanded their UK presence by opening a new London office.
Launched in April, the base is now allowing UK truck, coach and bus fleets to experience the programmatic approach to driver safety that has made DriveCam a global success.
Unlike any other driving solution offered in the country, DriveCam identify and address the causes of poor driving by combining sight and sound with real-time predicative analytics.
Paul Jones, Vice President and UK General Manager at DriveCam, said the opening builds on the UK client relationships forged over the past six years.
“We look forward to having a greater presence in the UK to deliver our unique and innovative driver safety solutions,” he said.
“We believe we can add significant value to our clients by making them safer, more efficient and competitive, and more profitable by preventing collision-related losses.”
DriveCam’s safety solution combines an in-cab video event recorder – which captures only exceptional driving events – with advanced risk management software to detect risky driving behaviour.
Video recordings are uploaded daily to DriveCam’s Risk Analysis Centre via secure wireless connection, to be analysed by experts before relevant events and data is divulged to fleet managers.
These videos aim to identify driver training needs, leading to changes in driving behaviour and prevention of accidents.
In the four years since installing DriveCam, UK client DS Smith Paper Logistics have experienced a 75% reduction in collisions.
DriveCam’s clients also benefit from significant reductions in fuel consumption, and further efficiency gains can be made through DriveCam’s optional fuel management and fleet tracking programmes.
