DriveCam is a global driver risk management company that reduces claims costs and saves lives by improving the way people drive and assessing liability in collisions.

DriveCam combines sight and sound, expert analysis and driver coaching to reduce vehicle damage and workers’ compensation and personal injury costs by 30 to 90 percent in more than 70,000 commercial and government vehicles. The company operates throughout North America, Europe, Australia, South Africa and Asia.

What is the company’s solution?

DriveCam offers a behavior-based risk mitigation solution that predicts and prevents actual risky driving behaviors likely to result in collisions. The company has industry expertise working with many types of fleets in several industries, including waste management, government and municipalities. The solution includes a palm-sized, exception-based

video event recorder mounted on the windshield behind the rearview mirror that captures sights and sounds inside and outside the vehicle.

Exceptional forces (e.g., hard braking, swerving, collision, etc.) cause the recorder to save the critical seconds immediately before and after the triggered event. Saved events are analyzed and used in ongoing driver coaching programs to improve behavior and mitigate driver risk.

Allowing this technology to help manage the driver risk management program on a clients’ behalf enables an enterprise to focus on its core business and ensure continuous improvement of fleet safety.
