Applied Driving Techniques teams up with Intelligent Telematics

Applied Driving Techniques (ADT) and Intelligent Telematics have teamed up to help fleet operators improve road safety, reduce insurance costs and boost duty of care.

Video footage and driver behaviour reports from Intelligent Telematics’ all-in-one 3G vehicle camera and tracking tool will be available direct from ADT’s Riskmapp solution, a web-based portal that provides instant access to essential fleet data, analysis and documentation. As a result, fleet operators will have full visibility and control over critical fleet, vehicle and driver information to support their ongoing safety and insurance strategies.

The two companies will work closely to develop an integrated approach that will not only minimise the risk factors facing fleets but also provide real-time visibility of all incidents, near misses and harsh driving events. This will enable organisations to meet legal obligations, reduce costs, lessen environmental impact and ultimately save lives, overcoming some of the most challenging driver safety issues they face.

Sam Footer, head of international business and strategic development at Intelligent Telematics commented: “Recent research found that our 3G vehicle camera technology achieved a reduction in accident frequency of 45 per cent and when an incident did occur the cost was 27 per cent less as a result of instant intervention. What was also striking was that 65 per cent of the accidents recorded were in fact avoidable highlighting a clear opportunity to improve fleet safety levels through improved and targeted driver engagement. Therefore, this partnership with ADT will enable companies to take proactive action to address driver issues to improve safety and reduce costs.”

Andy Phillips, director of Applied Driving Techniques said: “Business driving is the foremost occupational hazard with over 30 per cent of road deaths attributed to work-related activity each year, so we work with companies of all sizes to address corporate level risk and create the necessary environment for safety culture change. With this in mind we are committed to work with likeminded and industry-leading specialists such as Intelligent Telematics to enhance our offering. Using real-time and historical data will provide added driver insight and enable us to better analyse and address risk factors to maximise value and achieve measurable results.”
