    Lytx® Sets Video Telematics Industry Record, Adds 300,000 Subscriptions in Last Three Years

    SAN DIEGO (March 6, 2018) – Lytx® became the first company in the history of video telematics to sell 300,000 new subscriptions over a three-year period, reaching half a million total subscriptions, more than any other video telematics company in the world.

    Among those who partnered with Lytx last year to help protect their drivers and secure investments in their fleets were the world’s largest retailer, one of the U.K.’s largest parcel delivery companies, and the largest privately held truckload carrier in North America. Lytx's flagship DriveCam® video telematics safety program now protects more than 850,000 drivers.

    In 2017, the company launched the Lytx Video ServicesSM program — an integrated service enhancement to the DriveCam program that goes beyond safety and helps eliminate the fleet and operational blind spots that hold fleets back from being their most efficient, productive, and profitable. Lytx Video Services combines video telematics with machine vision to give fleet and operations managers access to cloud-connected, continually recorded video, available on demand and in near real-time.

    Driven by constant innovation and dedication to extraordinary customer service, Lytx continued to set the pace as the market leader in video telematics, a category it pioneered 20 years ago.

    “By introducing key enhancements to our DriveCam program last year, we set out to change the way video works for our clients,” said Lytx Chairman and CEO Brandon Nixon. “We are driven by our mission to not only help our clients protect their drivers and brand reputations, but also to help them improve their operations and succeed in their industries. Looking ahead, we will continue to innovate in new ways to help our clients solve their most pressing business challenges.”

    Among key Lytx business achievements in 2017:

    • More than 95,000 new subscriptions sold in 2017, bringing total subscriptions sold to more than 500,000
    • For the third year in a row, over half of existing clients expanded their fleet deployments
    • Introduced the Lytx Video Services program, which provides fleet managers unparalleled visibility into their fleet operations
    • 37th consecutive quarter of double-digit growth in subscriptions
    • Over $200 million total contract value committed in 2017
    • Delivered an estimated savings of $494.4 million in total claims costs
    • Analyzed more than 20 billion miles of driving data, which is the equivalent of going around the earth 803,181 times

    Lytx furthered its share of key commercial and public fleet categories in 2017, and now protects:

    • 10 of the top 15 for-hire, less-than-truckload and truckload carriers
    • 10 of the top 15 food-product distribution companies 
    • 9 of the top 15 transit and railroad companies
    • 9 of the top 15 concrete companies  
    • 9 of the largest cities and federal agencies
    • 7 of the top 15 largest propane distribution and gas distribution companies
    • 6 of the top 15 waste, disposal and recycling companies
