App monitors distracted driving

May 13, 2013

A smartphone application notifies managers when drivers use company-provided mobile devices to text, talk or check emails and social media while driving.

Corporate Canary is available for both iPhone and Android operating systems, according to developer Canary Project.

In addition to tracking handheld device use in a moving vehicle, the application can also monitor vehicle speed.  It can be configured to monitor employees only during business hours.

Reports accessed via an online dashboard show the time and location of each violation of company distracted-driving policies. Managers can also choose to receive downloadable reports on a daily or weekly basis.

Corporate Canary carries an annual subscription fee as low as $1.99 per user, according to the developer.  Monthly subscription plans and volume discounts are also available.
