Driver safety isn’t a “campaign,” nor a “tick-the-box” exercise achieved through periodic training courses.
To reduce driver risk, lower associated costs, and sustain risk reduction, driver safety must become “a way of life” – part of an organization’s conversations, activities, meetings, performance reviews, annual conferences, and other events.
In this webinar, Jim Noble, eDriving’s Vice President, Risk Engineering, explains how to reduce driver risk by creating a safety performance environment.

By Bernie Kavanagh, SVP and GM, Large Fleet, WEX, Inc.
As mobile payment technology continues to mature and security solutions come to the rescue of any outstanding consumer security concerns, it’s conceivable that most consumers will soon pick up their smartphones to make the majority of their purchases.
With that behavior taking shape, it’s likely that B2B payers will soon expect their B2B payments to be made as effortlessly.
This is certainly true in the fleet management industry, which is expected to undergo explosive growth and change in the next four to five years. At WEX, we make it our business to stay on the cutting edge of fleet management technology. That means both tracking and developing the tools that are driving mobility today.
