SmartDrive Systems, a leader in driving performance solutions that reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency, announced today that its Assurance 360 product has been named a winner in the 2016 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group. The BIG Innovation Awards recognize organizations and people that bring new ideas to life and the program’s selection of Assurance 360 reaffirms SmartDrive’s commitment continually seeking ways to deliver actionable insights across safety, operations and maintenance that materially improve fleet efficiency.
“We’re proud to be recognized for our continued innovation in video safety with an open platform that offers more options for fleets, more protection for their drivers and faster results for their business,” stated Steve Mitgang, SmartDrive CEO. “Today’s fleets need their technology investments to keep pace with the speed of innovation and the growth of their business. SmartDrive’s Assurance 360 does just that—offering our customers the fastest insight to risk and the most value for their investment with up to four camera integration, sophisticated data analytics, easy-to-use coaching and breakthrough driving insights that directly impact the bottom line.”
The SmartDrive Assurance product line is designed for commercial fleets focused on maximum protection and prevention of safety- and compliance-related incidents. The first video-based safety program that can be easily tuned to risk priorities and specific operating environments through a range of camera, integration and program configuration options, SmartDrive Assurance gives fleets the power to protect themselves with a solution that fits their specific business needs. With the option to deploy up to four cameras, Assurance enables a 360 degree view of the vehicle and insight to the most frequent causes of collisions—such as U-turns, backing, unintended lane changes, roll-overs and close following—delivering an unprecedented level of coverage and complete visibility to risk.
“It was clear from our judges that SmartDrive was clearly deserving of being recognized as a leader in innovation and we are proud to award them the 2016 BIG Innovation Award,” said Russ Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group. “Congratulations to the entire team. This is well-deserved recognition of your pursuit of excellence and creativity in solving problems.”
