Drivewyze Inc. has introduced Safety+, a new safety service that the company says brings customizable, “proactive” driving alerts and “context-based” driver coaching features to commercial truck drivers and fleets.
Drivewyze Safety+ requires no additional in-cab hardware and is delivered through the Drivewyze software platform. The new service builds on the existing Drivewyze Safety Notifications service, which warns drivers, through audible and visual cues of approaching areas where caution is required. Safety+ adds new back-office tools to create customized driver alerts, plus offers safety analytics.
The company says that Safety+ leverages real-time in-cab notifications and driver behavior at high-risk areas and analyzes driver performance to identify best-of-class drivers and those that require additional training. Safety+ is available as a stand-alone safety service or can be integrated into a fleet’s existing driver safety platforms.
Drivewyze Safety+ also provides drivers with the full suite of safety alerts that are included in the standard Drivewyze Safety Notifications service. Those include alerts for high rollover, low bridges and mountain corridors (giving notifications to use low gears, check brakes, while also providing alerts on upcoming runaway ramps), and more.
Drivewyze Safety+ is available through Drivewyze ELD partners, or on tablets and smartphones, and is available as a standalone service or as part of a bundle with Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service. Information from Drivewyze Safety+ can be integrated into existing safety programs via a full set of reporting APIs, the company adds.
