eDrivingSM, a Solera company and global provider of digital driver risk management solutions, has announced a partnership with Greater Than, the provider of tech that converts GPS data into insights and driver scores. Through the collaboration, eDriving will integrate Greater Than’s EcoScore into a new feature in its award-winning digital driver safety app MentorSM.
What is the product offering of combined solution?
The new feature, to be named EcoDrive powered by Greater Than, enables eDriving to further support its global clients in achieving their sustainability goals. Revolutionising driver risk management for over 25 years, eDriving is the trusted partner of choice for many of the world’s largest sales, service, and delivery fleets, supporting over 1.2 million drivers in 125 countries with award-winning digital driver risk management and safety solutions.
eDriving’s smartphone-based Mentor programme identifies and remediates drivers’ risky habits behind the wheel with training, coaching, and gamification, achieving up to an 89% reduction in risky driver behaviour over 18 months. The integration of Greater Than’s EcoScore is a strategic step for eDriving to elevate the sustainability benefits of Mentor for their clients on a global scale by contributing to carbon footprint reductions of up to 20%.
In addition, the EcoScore facilitates more accurate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting with harmonised data on an organisation’s CO2 emissions and savings.
Mentor’s EcoDrive powered by Greater Than will incorporate Greater Than’s pattern-AI tech which conducts real-time driving analysis to calculate CO2 emissions per individual driver.
With a uniform measure of environmental impact, EcoDrive powered by Greater Than enables fair, transparent, unbiased evaluation of individual drivers’ eco performance, regardless of vehicle type or global location. Drivers will be able to see carbon emissions reported in grams and percentages following each trip on their Mentor dashboard, making it the perfect sustainability analysis and reporting tool for businesses with mixed vehicle types.
What does this mean for eDriving and Greater Than?
“Our customers are keen to take ownership of their climate impact and help their drivers minimise their CO2 emissions as well as safely return home to their loved ones at the end of each workday. This exciting new partnership between eDriving and Greater Than will help to accelerate that goal,” said Ed Dubens, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of eDriving.
“Greater Than’s EcoScore is yet another example of how eDriving’s Mentor ecosystem brings together the best of the best into one solution focused on driver risk management, safety and sustainability. FICO’s Safe Driving Score, Sfara’s Collision Detection, Bosch’s Emergency Response Services, and now Greater Than’s EcoScore continue to evolve and sustain Mentor’s unique value proposition supporting the world’s largest enterprise organisations.”
“We are very excited that eDriving is introducing its new EcoDrive feature based on our EcoScore to its Mentor customers. Our partnership is another proof of the scope of use for our DriverDNA AI analysis,” said Liselott Johansson, Chief Executive Officer at Greater Than.
“With EcoScore integrated into the Mentor app, eDriving customers will have greater control over their environmental impact and the necessary insights to reduce them, as well as valuable data of absolute CO2 emissions to facilitate comprehensive sustainability reporting, which looks set to be mandatory for many companies in coming years,” added Liselott.
EcoDrive powered by Greater Than will be available in eDriving’s flagship Mentor business solutions, and Mentor Defender, eDriving’s newest app for individuals and family members, distributed through insurers, auto safety membership organisations and driving schools.
