Mentor by eDriving is an app-based telematics solution that uses the smartphone’s capabilities to provide feedback on key driving behaviors:
- Harsh Acceleration, Braking, and Cornering
- Distraction from Cell Phone Usage
- Traveled Speed vs. Posted Speed Limits
As the performance data is collected, Mentor can work out what training courses will be helpful for the driver to best stay safe; we know 94% of all collisions are about human behavior. Mentor will help you help your drivers think about and change their driving habits before they get into trouble. Our goal is to help drivers always get home safely to their loved ones each day.
Mentor by eDriving is like a fitness program - while it focuses on breaking bad habits and establishing good habits specific to driving; the process of changing habits is a very similar process to establishing new routines related to diet and health.
Mentor is designed to engage drivers directly in the process of self-improvement, however, encouragement and enforcement of the company’s expectations by managers provides compelling additional incentive. In this way, you can think of yourself like a driving fitness coach. Habits are hard to break and, as with any behavioral change program, reinforcement and encouragement are important ingredients. “What interests the boss fascinates the employee” - so this is where you come in!
Mentor provides managers and organizations with visibility into their drivers’ behaviors to uncover specific problem areas and foster the right communication at the right time. Managers receive overall insights for their drivers and have the ability to monitor their drivers on the Mentor Dashboard within the eDriving Virtual Risk Manager (VRM) portal. This information should be discussed in your regular check-ins with your drivers, or more urgently if a driver enters the risky range.
