Lytx, Inc. (formerly DriveCam, Inc.), in the delivering driver safety and compliance solutions, announced today that it has signed a full-fleet deployment agreement with LifeLine Ambulance, a trusted ambulance provider throughout Southern California. LifeLine provides basic life support (BLS), critical care transportation (ACLS), neonatal and pediatric intensive care unit transportation (NICU/PICU) and bariatric transportation administered by emergency medical technicians, respiratory therapists and registered nurses.
Prior to implementing the comprehensive DriveCam Program, Lifeline used a do-it-yourself camera function only, but quickly realized that the power of the program was in the predictive analytics it provides. Lifeline has now decided to roll out the DriveCam Program fleet-wide.
“When you provide a critical service to the community, and the smooth operations of your business can mean the difference between life and death, there is no room for error, which is why we selected the DriveCam Program for our driver safety solution,” said Max Gorin, co-founder of LifeLine Ambulance. “Sifting through hours of video clips on our own was ineffective, which is why we switched to the managed services program where a team of experts analyzes our driver performance. We expect to immediately increase good driving behavior, identify and eliminate problem driving, and reduce risk.”
“Being selected by a first responder company whose primary goal is to transport patients as safely as possible is a testament to the DriveCam solution,” said Adam McCarty, Senior Business Manager for Lytx. “These drivers are under pressure to move swiftly without compromising safety. We’ll work closely with the LifeLine operations team to help their good drivers become even better with the DriveCam Program.”
DriveCam powered by Lytx improves safety by combining data and video analytics with real-time driver feedback and coaching, resulting in reductions in collision-related costs and fuel consumption. Using the patented Lytx Engine, the DriveCam Solution scores, prioritizes and tracks the results of driving behaviors to identify improvement opportunities for increased safety. An in-vehicle device captures driving behavior, which is reviewed and scored by trained professionals, then passed on to the fleet for use in coaching drivers.
Fleets manage the DriveCam Program through the DriveCam Online Platform, a web-based online portal. With 24/7 secure access, DriveCam Online provides the important information fleets need to monitor fleet risk and prioritize what’s needed to maximize a safety program, along with providing the necessary tools for coaching drivers to improve their driving behavior. Featuring dashboards, alerts and configurable reports, DriveCam Online is key to driver risk management success.
