eDriving launches non-telematics version of its Mentor Driver App

Mentor Insight offers many tools to help improve driver behaviour, including risk assessment, predictive driver scoring, eLearning, manager coaching, and gamification, but without telematics-based monitoring of driver behaviour behind the wheel.

Mentor Insight is ideal for those companies not yet ready to navigate the privacy concerns that often accompany a full-scale implementation of telematics-based safety applications, as well as companies that may have a telematics solution in place but would like to leverage Mentor's additional feature.

One feature is an integrated Personal SOS function with Emergency Response Services powered by Bosch and Sfara. Available in more than 50 countries, the Personal SOS alert can be triggered by drivers to request assistance if they feel unwell or concerned about their safety at any time, in any place.

Mentor Insight works by providing a comprehensive view of driver risk to help sharpen defensive driver knowledge, behaviour, and attitudes, all within a data-secure environment that protects driver privacy completely.

Mentor insight also includes:

  • Driver Risk Scoring – all drivers receive a DriverINDEX® Score, which combines collision, incident, and license check data, plus RoadRISK® risk assessment results in one driver score, facilitating benchmarking and identification of an organization's most at-risk drivers for training and coaching.
  • eLearning – over 300 short, interactive eLearning modules help engage drivers and promote safer behavior behind the wheel
  • Manager Coaching toolkit – easy-to-use templates help managers coach their at-risk drivers using custom formats suitable for monthly meetings, annual reviews, and post-collision/violation.
  • Gamification – promotes friendly competition and ongoing safety-focused communication by enabling drivers to set up groups in which they can see fellow team members' progress/scores and use emojis and chat functions to send motivational messages.

"We know the use of telematics to monitor driver behaviour or calculate a driver's risk score isn't suitable for everyone, which is why we're delighted that organizations can now benefit from Mentor Insight," said Ed Dubens, CEO and founder of eDriving. "It gives companies the tools to create an environment where they can support their employees to be safe drivers on the roads while respecting any privacy concerns. At eDriving we help more than 1.2 million drivers in 125 countries to get home safely at the end of every day."
