Feb 19/2015 PRESS RELEASE

Following a banner year in 2014 and 150 percent increase in employee growth, Lytx moves to new larger San Diego headquarters

February 20, 2015 – San Diego, Calif. – Lytx™, Inc., the global leader in video-based driver safety technology, today celebrated a grand opening at its new global headquarters in San Diego, California. The move highlights the company’s continued growth trajectory fueled by the success of its more than 1,300 clients. The fourth quarter of 2014 marked Lytx’s 25th consecutive quarter of double-digit growth. With this move to accommodate a rapidly growing workforce, Lytx is now based in the heart of San Diego’s technology hub.

“Our new headquarters signifies another important moment in our company’s history. It is a result of our journey that has led us to be the industry leader in video-based driver safety technology. Our need to expand resulted from the successes of our valued clients and we are grateful to them for continuing to choose us,” said Nixon. “The new headquarters will be a great place for our expanding workforce to continue to innovate and deliver the most value to our clients.”

The new 75,000 square foot headquarters provides 67 percent more space than Lytx’s previous home and includes a host of design features and spaces that will further inspire Lytx employees to deliver breakthrough results for its clients. Campus features include:

  • More than 40 collaboration spaces to provide room for innovation and productivity.
  • A state-of-the-art lab for Lytx’s research and engineering teams.
  • A specialized demonstration room to showcase and trial Lytx’s latest technology developments.
  • Natural light and beautiful views for all employees to enjoy the San Diego way of life.
  • Beautiful outdoor areas to give employees green space to think and collaborate or enjoy a meal from the new café.

“The new headquarters is simply the beginning of a transformative year for Lytx,” continued Nixon. “We have just celebrated historic milestones of more than 200,000 subscriptions in service, and experienced a 150 percent increase in employee growth. We are now positioned to further accelerate our growth and continue to be the go-to global partner in video-based driver safety technology.”

Lytx’s video-based safety and compliance solutions are experiencing rapidly accelerating adoption across most transportation sectors. Due to its track record of client success and rapid program ROI, Lytx is the preferred partner in every significant commercial transportation segment, and has continued to double subscriptions every two years.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony held at the new campus was attended by Rep. Scott Peters, San Diego City Council President Sherri Lightner, San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Jerry Sanders, and other dignitaries including Lytx customers, some of whom brought their Lytx-protected vehicles to the ceremonies.

“Lytx’s growth is showing the success of our region’s innovative spirit,” said Congressman Scott Peters, who represents California’s 52nd congressional district in the San Diego area. “The company is an example of how locally-crafted technology can make our communities and our roads safer and save lives.”

Lytx was launched in 1998 in San Diego as a result of a road-rage incident where the company founders had a mission to capture what was actually happening in a traffic incident. With a goal of making our roads a safer place to travel, Lytx was relentless in its mission to use innovative technology to manage driver risk. It’s this passion and commitment that secured Lytx the top spot as the global industry leader – employing hundreds of engineers, scientists, and client services team members, and protecting more than 1,300 commercial and government fleet clients globally who drive billions of miles.

Industry leaders in every significant commercial segment choose Lytx, and the company is proud to serve customers like Waste Management, Sysco, Con-way Freight and Greyhound. More than just a technology provider, Lytx is a business partner, focusing on clients’ bottom-line results delivered through its comprehensive program, industry expertise, benchmarking and analytics, and open, innovative and upgradeable technology platform. The program also provides access to Lytx subject matter experts who aid in minimizing financial, operational, legal and driver risk. As the only provider that has deployed its solutions fleet-wide to organizations with enterprise-scaled fleets, Lytx has developed proven industry-leading methodologies to positively transform organizations in as little as six months of program launch.
