Eric Nelson, Smith Transport’s vice president of safety and recruiting, was not comfortable with personal dashcams. He wanted Smith Transport to have a viable solution to quickly investigate accidents and incidents, and proactively coach drivers to lower their risk.

Smith tested the two leading video-based safety systems. Ultimately, the company selected SmartDrive because of its:

  • Fully managed service
  • White glove service and support
  • Superb video quality
  • Easy-to-use dashboard
  • Smaller footprint
  • … and more!

In the first few weeks, Smith Transport saw a significant reduction in the number of coachable events. The SmartDrive system detected more risky events than the competing product for coaching. In addition, feedback from office staff also showed a clear preference for the SmartDrive dashboard that made video and event data easier to manage. They also preferred the system’s higher definition video footage. 

Smith Transport continues to see a downward trend for risky behavior. Isn’t it time you begin reducing risk in your fleet? Get a free demo today.
