SBCA Member Cellcontrol Uses Technology to Deter Distracted Driving
According to the National Safety Council, as many as one-fourth of US automobile crashes involve drivers talking or texting on their smartphones while driving, and despite laws to forbid it, the temptation to be connected at all times is proving too great for most drivers. In fact, distracted driving is so dangerous some studies have rated it to be the equivalent of driving while drunk or under the heaviest cold medications.
Cellcontrol, the world’s leading technology to stop distracted driving, offers fleet managers a technology platform that can significantly reduce the number of distracted driving-related crashes each year. Furthermore, using a distracted driving solution like Cellcontrol can also reduce liability for employers, enforce safe driving policies and, most importantly, saves lives.
Cellcontrol uses its signaling technology to accurately defer email, text and other unauthorized phone use while the vehicle is in motion. The easy-to-use hardware takes less than a minute to install and activate, is simple to administer, and works flawlessly with the vehicle’s on-board diagnostics to provide accurate dashboard/first look, ad-hoc reporting along multiple variables and queries, pre-set or scheduled reporting delivered as directed and open APIs that are available to feed or receive data from third-party systems and/or enterprise applications.
Moreover, fleet managers have the flexibility to adjust the policy to meet the balance between the productivity needs of his or her fleet and regulatory compliance at the fleet, region, branch, vehicle and individual level. Cellcontrol’s platform is comprised of three elements:
- In-vehicle policy triggering technology for each vehicle
- Mobile device policy software for all mobile devices
- Web-based management portal for policy administration, reporting, and exception management
“Distracted driving has become a deadly epidemic in the United States. Each year, statistics and public safety concerns rise. The very reason we invented our distracted driving solution was to bring employees and family members home safe every night,” said Cellcontrol CEO, Rob Guba.
The company’s groundbreaking technology platform is available and customizable for anything from small business to large enterprise fleets, and is compatible with Android, Apple iOS, Blackberry, Brew and Windows operating systems. In addition, the technology is tamper resistant and automatically alerts management if tampering is attempted, ensuring enforcement of a company’s distracted driving policies.
