Enterprise Fleets Improve Seat Belt Use by 88 Percent With inthinc
inthinc waySmart(R) Provides Greater Insight Into Driver Seat Belt
SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- inthinc Technology
Solutions Inc., a global provider of telematics, fleet management and
driver safety solutions, today announced its customers have improved
seat belt use by 88 percent on average. Using inthinc waySmart(R), a
comprehensive fleet management and safe driving solution, fleet
managers are able to accurately monitor seat belt use of any fleet or
vehicle and provide real-time alerts to drivers.
"One of the most common excuses we hear from drivers who fail to wear
a seat belt, is they simply forgot," said Josh Moore, Cintas Corp.
project manager. "With inthinc in the vehicle reminding drivers to
buckle up, there really is no excuse and so drivers are complying
with our seat belt policy more frequently."
Using waySmart's In-Cab Real-Time Verbal Coaching technology, drivers
are alerted when performing an unsafe driving behavior -- including
not wearing a seat belt -- and given a 15-second grace period to
comply. Violations not corrected within the grace period are
wirelessly reported to the acting fleet manager via the web-based
inthinc.com Management Portal. Using the data provided in the portal,
managers can quickly identify their safe drivers and those in need of
additional training. inthinc's new seat belt click monitoring
capability will also allow managers to identify how many times a seat
belt is engaged each day, ensuring drivers are using the seat belt
appropriately at all times.
"The seat belt is a life-saving tool and we want our customers to
have all the data necessary to ensure their drivers are using them
correctly," inthinc CTO, Corey Catten said. "Thousands of lives are
saved every year because of seat belts and we are committed to saving
more with our technology."
