Azuga, the leading global provider of connected vehicle and fleet technologies, announced the Q3 2017 recipients of the Azuga Fleet Safe Driving Awards. The awards program, which was launched in 2015, is designed to motivate and incentivize both fleet managers and fleet drivers who make safe driving a key part of their operations and culture through the use of Azuga’s fleet tracking and driver safety scoring solution. Recognized drivers and fleet managers have truly embraced Azuga’s rewards-driven approach to telematics, and in doing so have reduced aggressive driving behaviors such as speeding and hard braking by up to 85 percent. Award recipients were identified from a pool of more than 5,000 fleets, and will receive cash, certificates and recognition in industry press and social media.
“These quarterly awards help our customers and others in the industry understand the important role that fleet tracking can play in addressing important areas of safety, risk management and overall performance,” said Ananth Rani, co-founder and CEO of Azuga. “We are seeing dramatic improvements in aggressive driving metrics with as much as 85 percent reduction in speeding and hard braking.”

The Azuga Fleet Safe Driving Award program winners are determined by analyzing all drivers’ safety events (speeding, hard braking, rapid acceleration, idling) using a proprietary algorithm developed by Azuga’s data science team. Each individual safety component factors in the magnitude, duration, frequency, actual accident and claims data, and spatio-temporal index to determine the conditions under which the events occurred.
Driver scores are visible to fleet managers and workers alike, and are an important tool for recognizing good driving behaviors and identifying areas where coaching is needed.
