Being the World’s First

By David Ripstein - CEO

It’s not often you get the opportunity to be the world’s first at anything.  That’s why I’m so proud to announce the GreenRoad Smartphone Edition.  It is the world’s first driver performance service delivered completely from a smartphone.

It is a stunning accomplishment.  The GreenRoad Smartphone Edition offers precise, real-time in-vehicle driver feedback on par with our in-vehicle device.  Our developers creatively leveraged the smartphone native technology to create the next generation of a telematics device.  With GreenRoad Smartphone Edition, a driver’s smartphone is transformed into an effective, in-vehicle driving coach.

Over the past year, I’ve spoken a lot about the GreenRoad Connected Fleet vision.  The GreenRoad Smartphone Edition is a big step in making that vision a reality.  There’s a lot more to come as our talented team continues to recognize all the possibilities that can come from mobile and cloud technology.

Today though, I’d like to congratulate the GreenRoad team.  The GreenRoad Smartphone Edition represents many breakthroughs, from being able to monitor driving no matter how the phone is oriented, to automatically detecting the beginning and end of each trip so that using GreenRoad doesn’t burden drivers.

Many thought it wasn’t possible to deliver GreenRoad on a smartphone.  As our first customers are already getting tremendous value from the service, we proved them wrong.
