inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global telematics company centered on fleet management and driver safety solutions, published a white paper describing how the company’s speed monitoring and coaching feature, Speed-by-Street™, has helped commercial fleets reduce speeding by more than 80 percent. Using GPS technology and the largest database of speed limits in the U.S., Speed-by-Street provides real-time coaching alerts for drivers whenever and wherever they may exceed the posted speed or any threshold set by fleet managers—training better drivers, reducing accidents and decreasing risky behavior.
“Speeding not only risks lives, but it is also a costly practice carrying major financial risks,” said Todd Follmer, CEO, inthinc Technology Solutions. “Independent studies, as well as our customers’ experiences, have shown that changing the behaviorof drivers actually creates new safe driving habits. Real-time, in-cab voice alerts remind drivers to slow down, which in turn protects lives, saves millions of dollars in fuel costs and protects business by ensuring compliance with regulatory policies.”
The inthinc solutions, waySmart and tiwiPro,lead the telematics industry in providing comprehensive technology for driver safety, fleet management and compliance.With a broad variety of vehicles using inthinc technology, customers typically reduce fleet-wide speeding by over 80 percent within the first week of implementation. Combine that efficiency with the additional fuel consumption savings gained via idle time mentoring, and inthinc customers typically pay for the system within a few months—not to mention the marked decrease in carbon emissions.
