January 27, 2015 – London, UK – Lytx, Inc., a global leader in driver safety, today announced that R Turner (Haulage) Ltd. has launched Lytx’s driver safety programme to increase driver safety and drive down costs.

R Turner (Haulage) Ltd., which operates over 50 vehicles in its fleet, identified the instant benefits that Lytx’s technology and experience can offer, and opted to forgo any trial period and immediately implement the Lytx system.

Lytx leverages sophisticated predictive analytics with a coaching programme to improve driver performance and prevent collisions, which can reduce costs by between 50-80%.

Paul Jones, Lytx Europe Ltd.’s vice president and general manager, said: “The road is a dangerous environment, so we are delighted that R Turner (Haulage) Ltd. has taken the positive step of rapidly implementing Lytx technology to ensure that its drivers get home safely.”

Paul Davison, Fleet Engineer at R Turner (Haulage) Ltd., added: “Our top priority for the last year was to introduce a video event recording system to our fleet, but we initially found it challenging to find a cost effective and efficient way to implement the technology, without burdening our fleet managers with large quantities of data.

“Lytx’s experience and user-friendly implementation appealed to us as we knew we could achieve instant results by using the video clips to coach drivers – something we had not done in the past. We were also able to negotiate a subsidy to our insurance premium as a result of having the cameras installed.”

Jones concluded: “As well as giving our clients the insight to be able to proactively manage risk and improve driver safety, Lytx technology can help to exonerate drivers when they are not at fault and lower operating and insurance costs.”
