REDWOOD CITY, CA –May 15, 2012 — GreenRoad, the leader in driver performance and safety management, today announced the GreenRoad Central mobile app for drivers, the fleet industry’s first mobile app completely designed and optimized to give drivers anytime, anywhere access to key performance data. The app runs on Apple® iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android™ mobile and tablet devices. It is available now to download from app stores.
GreenRoad is the first to put the power of driver performance data into a mobile app expressly for fleet drivers, giving them convenient access and helping to improve driving performance. Now, for the first time, wherever they are, drivers can access their Safety Score, idling rate, team rank and trip details from the past seven days, and keep safety top of mind with GreenRoad ‘quick tips,’—all delivered in native smartphone applications. These insights enable drivers to self-correct and improve their driving, saving money through better fuel efficiency, crash reduction and eco-friendly driving.
Al Lacombe, director of safety and training at Dupre Logistics, LLC, said, “The app gives drivers an easy way to keep engaged with our GreenRoad program when they’re off the road. Our team finds it easy and convenient to use.”
GreenRoad is the leading driver performance and safety management fleet service. Using mobile and cloud technology, GreenRoad helps drivers self-improve. Companies using GreenRoad save money as better drivers use less fuel, crash less frequently, and cause less vehicle wear and tear.
