FleetRisk Advisors, Inc. recently announced the acquisition of Safety Management Solutions, LLC (SMS). The merger is intended to strengthen the company’s predictive analytics and decision support technology offerings for the transportation and logistics industry, in part by allowing FleetRisk to significantly expand the scope of offerings delivered through its safety management platform, The Driving Center.
FleetRisk plans to integrate all SMS safety programs into its existing suite of predictive models for commercial driving risks which include worker’s compensation risks, safety awareness, hiring and retention, online training, and automated intervention and countermeasures.
“The merger gives current SMS customers access to cutting edge technology and systems and provides current FleetRisk customers with additional subject matter expertise and much broader domain expertise,” said James Kaletta, president of SMS. “We view becoming a part of FleetRisk a ‘win-win’ for our customers, employees and the future.”
“The SMS team has built an impeccable reputation across a broad cross section of the commercial safety marketplace,” said Sam Wilkes, CEO of FleetRisk Advisors. “This merger allows FleetRisk to continue to expand our technology offerings while at the same time providing our customers with the broad level of in-depth professional skills and expertise to use this technology productively.”
