eDriving, a Solera company, provider of digital driver risk management solutions, announced in a statement the availability of Mentor Insight — the non-telematics version of its driver safety app, Mentor.
The newest addition to the Mentor family of driver safety apps, Mentor Insight offers many of the same tools to help improve driver behavior, including risk assessment, predictive driver scoring, eLearning, manager coaching, and gamification, but without telematics-based monitoring of driver behavior behind the wheel. This makes Mentor Insight ideal for those companies not yet ready to navigate the privacy concerns that often accompany a full-scale implementation of telematics-based safety applications, as well as companies that may have a telematics solution in place but would like to leverage Mentor’s additional features.
One such feature is an integrated personal SOS function with emergency response services powered by Bosch and Sfara. Available in about 50 countries, the personal SOS alert can be triggered by drivers to request assistance if they feel unwell or concerned about their safety at any time, in any place.
Mentor Insight works by providing a comprehensive view of driver risk to help sharpen defensive driver knowledge, behavior, and attitudes, all within a data-secure environment that protects driver privacy completely.
Mentor insight also includes:
- Driver Risk Scoring – All drivers receive a DriverINDEX score, which combines collision, incident, and license check data, plus RoadRISK risk assessment results in one driver score, facilitating benchmarking and identification of an organization’s most at-risk drivers for training and coaching.
- eLearning – About 300 short, interactive eLearning modules help engage drivers and promote safer behavior behind the wheel.
- Manager Coaching Toolkit – Templates to help managers coach their at-risk drivers using custom formats suitable for monthly meetings, annual reviews, and post-collision/violation.
- Gamification – Promotes friendly competition and ongoing safety-focused communication by enabling drivers to set up groups in which they can see fellow team members’ progress/scores and use emojis and chat functions to send motivational messages.
“We know the use of telematics to monitor driver behavior or calculate a driver’s risk score isn’t suitable for everyone, which is why we’re delighted that organizations can now benefit from Mentor Insight,” said Ed Dubens, CEO and founder of eDriving in the statement. “It gives companies the tools to create an environment where they can support their employees to be safe drivers on the roads while respecting any privacy concerns. At eDriving we help more than 1.2 million drivers in 125 countries to get home safely at the end of every day. This new addition to our Mentor product family means we can offer that support to even more drivers.”
Mentor Insight is the latest in eDriving’s suite of driver risk management programs. The flagship Mentor by eDriving app, currently in use by service, delivery, and sales fleets, uses smartphone telematics to collect and analyze driver behaviors most predictive of crash risk and produces a FICO Safe Driving Score, validated to predict a driver’s likelihood of being in a crash, and remediates risky behavior through eLearning, gamification, and coaching.
