SmartDrive Systems recently announced that Kenco Management Services-- a provider of integrated logistics solutions, real estate services, and material handling equipment-- has selected SmartDrive’s event recording system for roll-out across its entire nationwide fleet to improve safety and lower costs.

“Safety is a priority for our company and we continue to invest in solutions that help us reduce risk while improving operational efficiency,” said Jeff Tanner, vice president of risk management for Kenco. “Through our partnership with SmartDrive, we expect that we will be able to better manage our operational costs and deliver outstanding service, all while protecting customers’ freight and keeping our drivers safe.”

According to SmartDrive, Kenco wanted a video-based safety solution that provides actionable insight into safety events, but also includes a structured coaching workflow to facilitate consistent implementation of the SmartDrive program across the fleet.

“We are proud to have been selected as a partner by Kenco, a company that understands every second counts when it comes to safety,” said Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. “Kenco serves a diverse group of customers, requiring an open, scalable solution with the flexibility to be tuned to its specific safety priorities. Our configurable program was designed from the ground-up with this in mind, enabling Kenco to protect its drivers and reduce collisions without requiring them to fit in a ‘one-size-fits-all’ box.”

SmartDrive’s Response Center and its “3-Steps to Coach” workflow feature:

  • A video event player with an interactive Active Safety System gauge to provide a single, unified view that includes active safety system data plus driving and vehicle data
  • Real-time e-mail alerts intended to notify supervisors and managers when critical safety events occur —separating “no risk” from “high risk” events
  • Interactive dashboards and reports with program KPIs and analytics developed to be appropriate to each level of management—from executive, to manager and supervisor
