SambaSafety, a provider of cloud-based risk management software solutions for organizations with commercial and non-commercial drivers, announced its partnership with General Information Services (GIS). The NAPBS-accredited employment background screening company is partnering with SambaSafety to provide expanded criminal and driver monitoring offerings.
GIS will now be using a new driver records monitoring solution powered by SambaSafety. This newly added Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) solution paired with the company’s ongoing criminal monitoring solution will provide GIS customers with a comprehensive solution to risk management.
“We are happy to partner with SambaSafety to now provide two key post-hire solutions that monitor our clients’ employees beyond the pre-employment phase, helping to control their risk,” said Albert Bueno, CEO of GIS.
GIS’s new driver records monitoring solution, powered by SambaSafety, is a best-in-class MVR solution that will help GIS clients save money, keep the roads safer and protect their property and reputation, all in an easy-to-use and easy-to-understand format. It features a standardized scoring system based on offense (as opposed to license point value, which is inconsistent across states), plus the ability to see how individual drivers are trending – whether their risk score is going up or down – and why they’re trending in that fashion.
“We are happy to partner with GIS to further their mission to provide employers with solutions to mitigate risk and hire smarter,” said Richard Crawford, CEO of SambaSafety. “The partners we work are essential in helping us to drive change and driver safety, making North American roads and the people who travel them safer.”
Founded in 1998, SambaSafety is the leading provider of Driver Risk Management (DRM) software in North America. By collecting, correlating and analyzing MVRs and other data sources, the technology company identifies driver risk and enables its customers to modify their drivers’ behavior, reduce accidents, ensure compliance, and lower costs - ultimately improving driver and community safety.
Despite efforts to improve heavy vehicle safety, an analysis of U.S. crashes shows that heavy vehicle crash rates continue to rise.
