Together with partner Innovation Group Australia, eDrivingSM, a Solera company, and global provider of digital driver risk management solutions, was named the winner of the Technology Program Award at The Australian Road Safety Foundation‘s 11th Annual Road Safety Awards.
Why did eDriving and Innovation Group win the award?
eDriving and Innovation Group were presented with the award for eDriving’s innovative digital driver safety app, MentorSM. Mentor is made available by eDriving to fleet operators in Australia and New Zealand through the Innovation Group partnership. The Australian Road Safety Awards acknowledge the achievements of leading road safety stakeholders and provide an opportunity to recognise their commitment to improving road safety outcomes.
eDriving’s Mentor app is a smartphone-based digital driver safety program that identifies driver risk using a validated FICO® Safe Driving Score, and remediates risky behaviour with training, coaching and gamification. Among other features, Mentor also incorporates an eco-driving indicator, plus Automatic Crash Detection and Personal SOS features powered by Sfara and Bosch, which trigger emergency response services to keep drivers safe 24 x 7.
As with all eDriving programs and tools, Mentor operates within a highly secure, privacy-first environment, in which only driver data required for risk management is shared with the manager. No location data or individual trip data is visible beyond the driver.
What were the executives’ thoughts on the milestone?
“We’re delighted that Mentor has been recognised for its contribution to keeping those who drive for work purposes safe across Australia and New Zealand. This is great news for reinforcing the value of our partnership with Innovation Group in helping to reduce driver risk in Australia,” commented Ed Dubens, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of eDriving.
Drew Schnehage, MD of Innovation Group Australia, said: “Thank you to the Australian Road Safety Foundation for the nomination and our win of the Technology Programs Award. We are proud to be the exclusive resellers of the award-winning Mentor by eDriving offering.”
