Platform Science, E-SMART partner to improve fleet safety

E-SMART safety app to launch in Platform Science marketplace by Fall 2021.

Platform Science is partnering with E-SMART, a developer of fleet software solutions that improve vehicle safety, to add the E-SMART mobile app to Platform Science’s marketplace, bringing an additional option that supports the solutions fleets need for productivity, compliance, and most importantly, safety.

E-SMART offers intelligent speed adaptation, low bridge collision prevention, and remote vehicle immobilization to participating fleets. As with any solution in the Platform Science marketplace, fleets have the flexibility and freedom to mix and match any app at any time.

“Platform Science is hyperfocused on driver satisfaction and driver safety,” said Joe Jumayao, VP of business development at Platform Science. “In 2020 alone, 4.8M roadway users were critically injured in collisions. This is why partnering with E-SMART to bring our customers the latest technology to keep their drivers and others on the road safe is of the utmost importance to us and why we are excited to add E-SMART to our marketplace.”

According to E-SMART, its app uses GPS technology to determine vehicle location to actively manage its maximum allowed speed, provide real-time safety alerts, and identify known hazard areas such as low clearance bridges. If and when a driver approaches an area of concern, they will receive an immediate notification to their in-cab mobile device and the vehicle will be limited to idle. Leading fleets that have integrated the E-SMART technology have reported a significant decrease in speed-related infringements and accidents and an extensive savings among toll-related fines.

“E-SMART is gaining tremendous momentum in our mission to improve road safety,” Mathieu Boivin, CEO at E-SMART, said. “We are showing the industry that Intelligent Speed Adaptation, an active technology, is the solution for speed-related incidents with proven reduction results of over 90%.”
