"It may seem like an unlikely association for eDriving, partnering with motorsport professionals, but both Alister and Kim are passionate advocates of road safety and the adoption of the latest technology and techniques to improve a driver's performance," said Cory Fee, eDriving's VP Customer Success for AMEA, adding, "Alister and Kim's state-of-the-art driver training facility is set to break the mold of traditional defensive driver training techniques, and Mentor fits in perfectly with their aim of transforming driver behavior to save lives."
Mentor is already being used by organizations around the globe, helping to improve at-work driver behavior, using telematics sensors in iOS and Android smartphones collecting and analyzing data on driving behaviors such as Acceleration, Braking, Cornering, Speeding, and the biggest threat of them all, Phone Distraction.
"eDriving's ground-breaking technology is unlike any other telematics technology on the market, and the fact that it is adapted for smartphones is a game-changer," said Ledger. "Our shared viewpoint with eDriving is that traditional defensive driver training techniques and telematics technologies have declined in effectiveness in recent years, and do not effectively mitigate the root cause of driver safety… behavior. DRM's newly-developed training methods based on current research and extensive experience in motorsport, combined with eDriving's proven successful behavioral change techniques and smartphone-telematics technology will completely transform the effectiveness of driver training in the region."
"Being motorsport enthusiasts, both Kim and I love to drive fast, but the primary consideration is to ensure we do so safely," added McRae. "Our passion for teaching others to put safety before anything else on the road is what fuels our mission to do everything we can to mitigate the tragic loss of life that has become acceptable in our community."
eDriving is the driver risk management partner of choice for many of the world's largest organizations, supporting over 1,000,000 drivers in 96 countries.
