Azuga releases 'driver behavior solution'

Aug. 29, 2013

Fleet tracking service firm Azuga recently launched what it calls a new “driver behavior solution” named Azuga DriveSafe; a service that implements mobile device policies for fleets.

This new service, powered by Cellcontrol, automatically puts mobile phones into “do-not-disturb” mode, blocking disruptive emails and texts when vehicles are in motion, noted Ananth Rani, Azuga’s VP and GM.

Distracted driving is not only part of the national conversation today, it’s the law. Talking or texting while driving is a huge liability for our fleet customers,” Rani added. “The launch of Azuga DriveSafe demonstrates our commitment to our customers and to public safety.”

Joe Breaux, chief technology officer of Cellcontrol, said this technological package should help Azuga DriveSafe customers reduce rear-end crashes – saving costs, minimizing liability and keeping drivers safe.

Indeed, the Automotive Fleet and Leasing Association estimates 20% of all fleet vehicles are involved in a crash each year, and the National Safety Council predicts each crash costs an average of more than $25,000.
