eDrivingSM, a global provider of driver risk management programs, today announced the availability of Mentor TSP on the Geotab Marketplace, a go-to source for organizations seeking to better manage their fleets. Introduced at Geotab Connect 2020, Mentor TSP (Telematics Service Partner) connects a customer’s existing Geotab fleet management solution with eDriving’s patented driver risk management platform, Virtual Risk Manager®, to help reduce incidents, collisions, MVR license violations, and total cost of fleet ownership.
A derivative of Mentor by eDrivingSM, which is currently used by organizations around the world to help improve at-work driver behavior, Mentor TSP uses 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.
Through eDriving’s partnership with industry analytics leader FICO®, driver on-road performance is converted into an individual FICO® Safe Driving Score, which has been validated to help predict the likelihood of a driver being involved in a collision. Personalized insights are provided privately to drivers after each trip, showing both positive and negative driving events and 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.
Mentor TSP for Geotab customers combines a driver’s FICO® Safe Driving Score with their collision history, license violation history and data insights processed by Geotab, including seat belt usage, idling, reversing and fuel efficiency, in one performance management solution for enhanced risk reduction and claims management opportunities. Mentor TSP’s comprehensive offering also includes manager coaching, eLearning, license checking and Driver Event Reporting (DER) tools. This combined solution can provide Geotab customers with a suite of tools to help not only support their focus on safety as a strategic imperative, but also support drivers and managers as they strive to create a crash-free culture®.
“Mentor TSP complements the Geotab fleet management solution by combining driver behaviors from both Mentor TSP and Geotab into one unique risk management approach,” said Ed Dubens, Founder & CEO of eDriving. “To the wide range of fleet efficiency and productivity insights collected by hard-wired and OBDII telematics devices, Mentor TSP adds driver behavior metrics proven to be the most predictive of collision risk. When these rich data sets are further combined with incidents, collisions, and MVR violations, the result is a complete view of driver and vehicle health and safety. This powerful offering aids fleet operators in coaching employees who are driving for work purposes to help reduce crashes, license violations and injuries as well as total cost of fleet ownership.”
