Webfleet Solutions, one of the world’s leading telematics providers and part of Bridgestone, is collaborating with Lytx, a leading global provider of video telematics solutions for fleets, to offer an integrated video-based solution. WEBFLEET Video is a seamless integration of Lytx’s camera technology into Webfleet Solutions’ fleet management system. Users will be able to access and manage both their vehicles and their in-vehicle cameras via WEBFLEET, the award-winning fleet management platform, offering a single interface experience.
WEBFLEET Video combines Webfleet Solutions’ vehicle and driving data with Lytx’s advanced machine vision (MV) and artificial intelligence (AI) powered camera technology to give users the full context of how their fleet is operating on the road. This gives the user more insight into critical events, helping them to prevent accidents, increase safety for the driver, enhance fleet efficiency and reduce the frequency and cost of insurance claims.
‘We are excited to combine our expertise to equip many more customers worldwide with best-in-class solutions’, says Damian Penney, Vice President, Europe at Lytx. ‘Many fleet managers today leverage more than one technology, which can be a lot to juggle. Finding opportunities to consolidate is crucial. Through this integration, customers will be able to seamlessly access industry-leading video-based driver behaviour and fleet management insights’, Penney adds.
The combination of video and telematics data safeguards drivers and fleets in a number of ways. For example, WEBFLEET uses driving behaviour data on things like idling or harsh braking to provide actionable insights and real-time feedback that supports drivers to drive more safely and sustainably. With the addition of Lytx’s video technology, fleet managers now have a better understanding of why these events occur. They can protect their drivers from non-fault claims and coach them to achieve a higher level of road safety.
‘We are convinced that Lytx, the leading company in video telematics, is the right partner to introduce our fully integrated video solution in WEBFLEET. Together, we can even better meet the needs of the fleets we serve with increased safety and efficiency. WEBFLEET Video will also provide clear evidence in the event of road traffic incidents. This protects the driver against fraudulent claims, while also helping the company to avoid lengthy legal proceedings and to refute incorrect damage or injury claims’, Taco van der Leij, Vice President of Webfleet Solutions Europe concludes.
