DriveCam Expands Services in Canada


SAN DIEGO – June 28, 2011 – DriveCam Inc., a global Driver Risk Management company, is pleased to announce expansion of its Driver Risk Management, Fuel Management and Fleet Tracking solutions into Canada. With the added availability of nationwide cellular service to DriveCam’s proven solutions, fleets operating in Canada can now experience greater flexibility and seamless program integration while dramatically reducing collision costs and lowering operating costs throughout their fleet with minimal impact on IT and operational resources. Cellular service also enables fleets to take advantage of applications that require real-time communication such as Fleet Tracking and Fuel Management.

As a result of DriveCam’s partnership with Rogers Communications, one of the largest communications companies in Canada, some top fleets in North America – such as Progressive Waste Solutions, Sysco, and Linde are taking advantage of this technology to expand their footprint in Canada. In addition, Canadian service is now available to any fleet with services in Canada.

“DriveCam’s ability to extend their service capabilities into Canada is a great benefit to Sysco,” commented Al Dibens, Director of Safety Services, Sysco. “DriveCam’s focus on innovation in support of their customers’ business needs, is one of the reasons we made the decision to partner with DriveCam.

With seamless program integration, our clients will be able to incorporate our service across their entire fleet and benchmark their progress, no matter where they’re located.”
