SAN DIEGO, May 3, 2018—SmartDrive Systems, a leader in video-based safety and transportation intelligence, today announced its SmartDrive Transportation Intelligence Platform was awarded the silver award in the New Product or Service of the Year category in the 16th annual American Business Awards. Also known as the Stevie Awards®, these awards recognize achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals across all major industries in the United States.
Recognized in the transportation sub-category, the SmartDrive Transportation Intelligence Platform comprises new SR4 hardware, new triggering and risk management capabilities, advanced analytics and a best-in-class video safety program. The platform prepares fleets and drivers for an autonomous future by fusing data from all systems, all sensors and the operating environment to provide fleet managers a more comprehensive view of risk and performance. As vehicles become increasingly autonomous, fleet manager may struggle to gain a cohesive view that incorporates both driver actions and contextual background. The new SmartDrive platform provides a consolidated perspective to efficiently and effectively interpret and manage fleet risk.
"The transportation industry is changing rapidly, the role of the driver is changing and the rise of autonomous technologies presents a new set of business challenges for fleets," said Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. "We designed the SmartDrive Transportation Intelligence Platform and accompanying SR4 hardware specifically to address the safety and operational challenges of today while providing a foundation for the future. We are honored to be recognized by the American Business Awards for the second consecutive year for our innovation and unmatched industry solutions."
The platform ensures fleets can understand driver readiness as vehicles become more autonomous. With a unified view of driving performance—no matter who or what is operating the vehicle—management can now improve operational results companywide.
Among the early adopters of the platform, Oakley Transportation has reported a 62 percent reduction in number of accidents and a 2.1 percent increase in fuel efficiency—equating to approximately $84 per vehicle per month in fuel expense savings at current diesel prices.
"The nominations submitted for The 2018 American Business Awards were outstanding. The competition was intense, and those recognized as Stevie Award winners should be immensely proud of this accomplishment," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
The awards ceremony will be held on June 11 in New York City. Full details about the Stevie Awards and the complete list of 2018 winners are available at https://stevieawards.com/aba/2018-stevie-award-winners.
