Brightmile and DriveTech link for ‘powerful’ fleet safety combination

Driver behaviour app Brightmile has teamed up with DriveTech to help fleets enhance road safety.

The tie-up will see both parties promote each other’s risk management solutions to accelerate fleets’ focus on duty of care.

DriveTech will offer the Brightmile app to its customers to help them manage overall fleet risk exposure and gain from direct feedback to individual drivers. The app launched a year ago and uses smartphone sensors to assess and coach drivers on ‘Five Pillars’ of safe driving behaviour (Risk, Speeding, Smartphone Distraction, Fatigue and Eco).

Brightmile will in turn offer access to DriveTech e-learning interventions and driver training coaching services its existing customers, helping them improve behaviour in areas where needed, as shown by the app.

Leo Taylor, head of product solutions from DriveTech, commented: “We believe that telematics has a significant role to play in the overall commitment to improve driver behaviour and road safety. Using the Brightmile app to help dynamically assess aspects of driver style and habits on an ongoing basis will enhance the ability to target specific DriveTech e-learning and other quality driving interventions. Improved road safety and reduced collisions are going to be the major benefits.”
