technology illustrationIdelic, the creator of the Idelic Safety Suite, the trucking industry’s most comprehensive driver management platform dedicated to improving fleet safety, and Lytx, a leading global provider of video telematics, analytics, productivity and safety solutions for commercial, public sector and service fleets, Sept. 8 announced a systems integration that will help joint clients more effectively manage safety in their fleets.

Lytx and Idelic together empower drivers and fleet managers with key insights and a seamless, centralized and comprehensive view of driver safety. Lytx offers an array of customizable fleet management solutions and services powered by the best-in-class DriveCam Event Recorder; its advanced proprietary machine vision and artificial intelligence (MV+AI) technology can identify and alert drivers to risky driving behaviors with greater than 95% accuracy – unmatched in the industry.

The company joins other third-party fleet systems currently consolidated into Idelic’s Safety Suite to help managers utilize their data, better understand the risk in their fleets and proactively predict and prevent crashes. Current Idelic integrations span asset management, Electronic Logging Devices (ELD), human resources, training, citations and violations, applicant tracking and recruiting and pre-hire resources, making the Idelic Safety Suite a data powerhouse for trucking fleets looking to streamline and optimize their technology deployments.

Hayden Cardiff, founder and co-CEO, Idelic said: “The data collected by Lytx is an essential part of the overall equation for understanding driver risk. By incorporating driving behaviors observed both inside and outside of the vehicle via Lytx’s DriveCam with the broader out-of-cab insights within Safety Suite, such as job history, CSA scores, insurance information, test results, training and more, we can accurately contextualize risk through our AI-based analytics, adding significant value to our joint customers.”

Through this integration, customers using Idelic’s Safety Suite alongside Lytx’s industry-leading Driver Safety Program will be able to automatically connect their video telematics data from Lytx to Safety Suite. By combining the video-based insights uncovered by Lytx’s video telematics technology with Idelic’s data organization, AI and predictive analytics for overall driver risk, fleets can unlock a comprehensive, 360-degree understanding of their driver safety programs and make more proactive and data-driven decisions. With the Idelic Safety Suite serving as a central location for multiple fleet solutions, this integration will help fleets further streamline their workflows and uncover valuable insights hidden within the firehose of data hitting fleets every day.

“At Lytx, it’s our dream that no commercial driver is ever the cause of a collision,” said Frank Schneider, director of integration partnerships at Lytx. “We help drivers recognize and improve their performance behind the wheel through both real-time alerts and self-coaching opportunities after-the-fact. Fleet managers are then able to more effectively focus their attention on the smaller percentage of drivers who are creating real risk for their fleet, ultimately reducing both collisions and claims costs. Through this integration with Idelic, our joint customers will be able to seamlessly access these industry-leading video-based driver safety insights from Lytx alongside other essential driver information from Idelic, drastically cutting down the number of programs a fleet or safety manager have to juggle each day so they can be as efficient and effective as possible.”
