eDriving IS Eco-Driving

Company Focus

eDriving, a Solera company, not only helps companies to encourage safer driving behaviours – to help ensure that all those who drive for work purposes return home safely every day – but it also helps them to recognise that by helping drivers prioritise safety, they are also working towards sustainability goals. Because safe, defensive driving IS eco-driving. 

eDriving’s Mentor app uses smartphone sensors to collect and analyse driver behaviours most predictive of risk, including Acceleration, Braking, Cornering, Speeding, and Phone Distraction. It delivers personal insights to drivers after each trip, showing positive and negative driving events and, for the driver’s view only, where they occurred. Through eDriving’s partnership with FICO®, drivers receive an individual FICO® Safe Driving Score, validated for its ability to predict the likelihood of a driver being involved in a collision. Mentor includes trip-based and shift-based scoring to provide flexibility for delivery and last-mile distribution clients. 

New for 2021, an ECO icon on the Mentor dash shows drivers just how eco-friendly their driving is and reminds them that smooth, defensive driving IS eco-driving. In-app training modules help drivers improve their behaviours, for a better FICO® Safe Driving Score and ECO rating. 

Additional Mentor features include gamification, event reporting, vehicle inspections, crash detection and emergency response services powered by Sfara and Bosch.

For maximum risk reduction, Mentor is offered in conjunction with eDriving’s broader Crash-Free Culture® programme, used by Fortune 500 companies throughout the world to produce sustainable driver behaviour change. The 5-stage Crash-Free Culture programme includes:

  • Safety Culture: Privacy/ policy templates, SMART driving principles, guides, safety pledges
  • RoadRISK®: Validated risk assessment to help managers understand which drivers are most likely to be involved in a collision and why
  • DriverINDEX®: Combines collision, incident, licence check, and telematics behaviour data for comprehensive view of driver risk 
  • RiskCOACH®: Extensive library of interactive eLearning modules 
  • Benchmarking: Comparisons among teams, divisions, companies, industries

eDriving supports clients with both their safety and sustainability goals, and provides resources, such as the recently launched Eco-Driving Resource Centre, including webinars, eBooks, blog articles and infographics to help companies understand and communicate the important link between safety and sustainability.
