TOKIO MARINE AMERICA TO TARGET FLEET RISK USING ALERTDRIVING'S RISK MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

TORONTO January 27, 2017--(BUSINESS WIRE)

 

Today AlertDriving announced its partnership with the U.S. insurance organization Tokio Marine America (TMA). As an AlertDriving partner, TMA will offer FleetDefenseSM, the world’s most comprehensive driver risk management platform designed to identify, mitigate and monitor driver risk.

 

“As an Advantage Channel Partner, Tokio Marine America is reinforcing its mission to provide safety, security and peace of mind to its clients,” says Rob Martin, Vice President of Sales at AlertDriving. “TMA can now help fleets train more drivers over larger areas, reducing risk with scalable, behavior-based data.”

 

Motor vehicle accidents impact workers, their families, businesses and communities on a daily basis. Millions of workers drive or ride in a vehicle as part of their jobs, and traffic crashes are the leading cause of on-the-job fatalities in America. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, workplace-driving accidents cost employers an average of $60 billion annually. The good news is that most of these accidents are preventable.

 

Although employers cannot control roadway conditions, they can promote safe driving behavior by providing safety training to workers, and by setting and enforcing driver safety policies. The AlertDriving program focuses on reinforcing safe driving behavior through an approach that is optimized for adult learning. Drivers are tested at regular intervals, not just once, and the modular design can be customized with local content to target specific collisions.

 

“Automobile accidents are a leading cause of accidental injury in the workplace. Tokio Marine America is dedicated to helping our clients and their employees remain safe at all times,” states David Gottschall, Senior Vice President, Tokio Marine America, Loss Control Department. “We are excited to partner with AlertDriving to offer our clients defensive driver training courses that will help drivers to recognize unsafe driving behaviors, encourage safe driving habits, and reduce accidents and workplace injuries in return.”

INTRODUCING MOTORMIND BY ALERTDRIVING, A REVOLUTIONARY PROGRAM THAT STARTS WHERE TYPICAL WEB-BASED TRAINING ENDS

TORONTO October 14, 2016--(BUSINESS WIRE)

 

Today, AlertDriving announced the highly anticipated launch of its newest training program, MotorMind by AlertDriving.

 

The program enables drivers to re-evaluate deep-rooted beliefs that lead to dangerous driving behavior. Interactive lessons combine elements of gamification with engaging exercises that focus on some of the most challenging topics to address, such as distracted driving and proper space management.

 

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of MotorMind,” says AlertDriving’s Vice President of Innovation, Matthew Latreille. “This is a totally new, unique approach to driver training, allowing the driver to ‘learn by doing.’ The interactive lessons dig deep into crash cause, forcing drivers to re-evaluate their own dangerous beliefs. The result is permanent behavioral change.”

 

As part of FleetDefenseSM, AlertDriving’s acclaimed driver risk management platform, MotorMind by AlertDriving is being integrated into AlertDriving’s multi-year training program. In the first year, drivers complete the Hazard Perception Evaluation, a state-of-the-art tool that uses localized video content to identify driver risk and assign targeted training. In the second year, drivers complete modules based on the previous year’s fleet performance. And in the third year, drivers are introduced to MotorMind by AlertDriving.

 

“We have the largest global driver training library in the industry, making it easy to extend the program well beyond three years,” adds Latreille. “By giving FleetDefenseSM a permanent role in your company’s driver safety program, you will create an organic safety culture within your fleet, permanently reducing collisions, injuries, costs and liability exposure.”​

ALERTDRIVING ADVANTAGE PROGRAM EXPANDS REACH INTO ASIA WITH NEW MALAYSIAN CHANNEL PARTNER

TORONTO March 31, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE)

 

AlertDriving today announced that one of Malaysia’s top driver education academies, the School of Advanced Motoring Principles, has become a Certified ADvantage Channel Partner. To combat traffic accidents on Malaysia’s roads—up to 18 people die every day—the School of Advanced Motoring Principles will now have unprecedented marketing support to offer FleetDefenseSM, the world’s most extensive, fully integrated driver safety program.

 

“The best safety device you can install in a car,” the School says on its website, “is a trained driver.” If that is true (and indeed it should be), then over 10,000 cars navigating Malaysia’s roads have been made safer from drivers practicing the School’s unique method. Beginning from basic car control and handling, the School develops students’ crash avoidance skills to help them cope in any number of emergencies. Slick roads, mechanical failure and risk-taking drivers are among the common—yet dangerous—hazards which can change a life in an instant; the School “draws the fear out of you,” according to some, by using speed with safety in a safe, smooth, systematic way of driving.

Experienced instructors, including two previous rally racing Clubman champions, also work with fleet managers, sales executives and other corporate clients—all up to 50% more likely to die in a car accident, because they drive for work.

 

With FleetDefenseSM, the School of Advanced Motoring Principles can now tackle that risk by helping fleets “draw the fear” out of their risk exposure.

 

“Identifying risk requires standardized metrics to ensure consistency as fleets assess drivers across business units, regions, or countries,” explains Rob Martin, Vice President of Sales at AlertDriving. “As an ADvantage partner, the School of Advanced Motoring Principles can now offer more choices—fleets can train to assess risk using a fully integrated, end-to-end risk management solution, or they can bundle our program to prescribe targeted, hands-on interventions where necessary.”

ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF ADVANCED MOTORING PRINCIPLES:

Founded in 1989, the School of Advanced Motoring Principles offers students a highly effective, immersive training program that over 10,000 students will tell you can reduce your accident risk.
