DriveCam Opens London Office, Expands Commitment to UK

Apr 07/2013 PRESS RELEASE

April 8, 2013 – San Diego, CA – DriveCam, Inc., a global leader in driver risk management, today announced that it is expanding its presence by opening an office in London.  Unlike any other driving safety solution offered in the UK, DriveCam identifies and addresses the causes of poor driving by combining sight and sound with real-time predictive analytics.

“We’ve had the DriveCam program in place for over four years and we’ve experienced a 75% reduction in collisions during that time” said Mark Abbey, Fleet Logistics Services Manager, DS Smith Paper Logistics.  “Importantly, we’ve seen how our drivers have improved their driving skills using the DriveCam program.  We’re happy to see DriveCam expand in the UK because we believe it can play a major role in making drivers safer and reducing fleet costs.

DriveCam’s in-cab video event recorder and patented risk management software has advanced capabilities to detect risky driving behavior and limits capture to only the risky events that have occurred.  The DriveCam system then uploads daily recordings via a secure wireless connection to DriveCam’s Risk Analysis Center and transfers videos of unsafe driving events to clients for driver coaching.  DriveCam’s clients benefit from significant reductions in collision-related costs, as well as reductions in fleet maintenance costs and fuel consumption.  DriveCam’s driver risk management solution also offers fleet operators cost savings and efficiency gains through optional fuel management and fleet tracking programs.  For more information about DriveCam UK, please visit www.drivecam.co.uk.

The company appointed Paul Jones to lead its UK business.  Mr. Jones, who previously led Client Services at DriveCam’s headquarters in San Diego, California, is now based in London.  “Opening our regional office builds on the UK client relationships that we’ve forged over the past six years, and reinforces our commitment to support our clients and partners in the UK,” said Paul Jones, Vice President and General Manager, UK for DriveCam.  “We believe we can add significant value to our clients by making them safer, more efficient and competitive, and more profitable by preventing collision-related losses.  We look forward to having a greater presence in the UK to deliver our unique and innovative driver safety solutions.”
