eDriving announced a partnership with Greater Than, a provider of technology that converts GPS data into insights and driver scores.
Through the collaboration, eDriving will integrate Greater Than's EcoScore into a new feature in its digital driver safety app Mentor. The new feature, to be named EcoDrive powered by Greater Than, enables eDriving to further support its global clients in achieving their sustainability goals, according to eDriving's news release.
eDriving added that its smartphone-based Mentor program identifies and remediates drivers' risky habits behind the wheel with training, coaching, and gamification, achieving up to an 89% reduction in risky driver behavior over 18 months.
The integration of Greater Than's EcoScore is a strategic step for eDriving to elevate the sustainability benefits of Mentor for their customers on a global scale by contributing to carbon footprint reductions of up to 20%, according to the company.
"Our customers are keen to take ownership of their climate impact and help their drivers minimize their CO2 emissions as well as safely return home to their loved ones at the end of each workday. This exciting new partnership between eDriving and Greater Than will help to accelerate that goal," said Ed Dubens, CEO/founder of eDriving. "Greater Than's EcoScore is yet another example of how eDriving's Mentor ecosystem brings together the best of the best into one world-class solution focused on driver risk management, safety, and sustainability. FICO's Safe Driving Score, Sfara's Collision Detection, Bosch's Emergency Response Services, and now Greater Than's EcoScore continue to evolve and sustain Mentor's unique value proposition supporting the world's largest enterprise organizations."
Mentor's EcoDrive powered by Greater Than will incorporate Greater Than's AI technology which conducts real-time driving analysis to calculate CO2 emissions per individual driver. Drivers will be able to see carbon emissions reported in grams and percentages following each trip on their Mentor dashboard.
"We are very excited that eDriving is introducing its new EcoDrive feature based on our EcoScore to its Mentor customers. Our partnership is another proof of the scope of use for our DriverDNA AI analysis," said Liselott Johansson, CEO of Greater Than. "With EcoScore integrated into the Mentor app eDriving customers will have greater control over their environmental impact and the necessary insights to reduce them, as well as valuable data of absolute CO2 emissions to facilitate comprehensive sustainability reporting, which looks set to be mandatory for many companies in coming years."
