Solera announced June 2 it has acquired eDriving, a digital driver risk management partner for commercial fleets.
eDriving identifies and remediates risky commercial driver behavior. The company’s flagship product, Mentor by eDrivingSM, provides a smart-phone-based driver safety solution that uses telematics to analyze operator behavior in real time, improving roadway safety. It also generates a FICO Safe Driving Score to benchmark drivers against their peers and deploys safe-driving e-Learning programs in an easy-to-implement, highly secure environment.
eDriving complements Solera’s existing fleet assets including the recently-announced pending strategic acquisition of Omnitracs, including its SmartDrive business, that will further expand Solera’s reach into adjacent global fleet markets.
The acquisition of eDriving allows Solera to deepen its focus beyond the vehicle into driver behavior and risk analytics.
Solera’s SuperVision brand, along with Omnitracs and SmartDrive, have long been recognized as leaders in helping their clients manage, control, and reduce fleet risk exposure. Now, with eDriving’s suite of smartphone telematics, Solera customers have access to end-to-end fleet management solutions.
eDriving's risk management program has helped organizations in 125 countries to improve road safety and lower the total cost of fleet ownership. Using one platform, customers have access to a comprehensive risk data set that identifies driving incidents, license violations, and risky behaviors.
