W.W. Transport Deploys the DC Protect Program from Lytx


DC Protect Program Enables Company to Significantly Increase Safe Driving Throughout its Fleet ~

June 24, 2015 – San Diego, Calif. – Lytx™, Inc., the global leader in video-based driver safety, today announced that bulk hauling leader W.W. Transport has deployed the Lytx DC Protect® Program across its entire fleet. The West Burlington, Iowa-based company is one of the early adopters of DC Protect—a program specifically designed for fleets with fewer management resources and low insurance deductibles—which provides the same industry-leading video, predictive analytics, proactive coaching tools, plus full fleet protection for exonerations. So far, the program has enabled W.W. Transport to reduce the number of risky driving maneuvers throughout its fleet and has resulted in a significant increase in safe driving including numerous perfect driver scores.

“DC Protect has provided everything we were seeking in a video-based driver safety solution and more,” said Stan Addis, W.W. Transport Safety Instructor. “It shows us the drivers we need to focus our attention on, and provides the analytics and tools to coach those drivers toward improvement. In addition, the program tracks actual driving maneuvers to gauge, compare, and score all drivers compared to their peers. We’re pleased to report that 90 of our drivers now have perfect scores—meaning they have logged zero risky maneuvers in the last 60 days.”

DC Protect is an efficient way for companies to address fleet-wide risk without having to add resources to run the program. Using the proprietary Lytx Safety Score™, DC Protect helps identify and manage the drivers who will benefit most from coaching and performance improvement while protecting and exonerating safer drivers.

“W.W. Transport was one of dozens of fleets who helped innovate the Lytx DC Protect Program by allowing us to meet the needs of the mid-sized fleet and the value they place on identifying drivers that need coaching and also protecting their good drivers,” said Adam McCarty, Vice President, Mid-Market Team for Lytx. “We are thrilled to see W.W. Transport realizing the beneficial results we envisioned when creating DC Protect, and are pleased to see them benefiting from the program.”

Top industry leaders in every significant commercial transportation segment choose Lytx. Lytx’s success can be attributed to the company’s comprehensive safety program that includes best practices benchmarking by industry and access to subject matter experts who aid in minimizing financial, operational, legal, and driver risk. As the only video-based safety provider that has deployed its solutions across small and large enterprise-scaled fleets, Lytx has developed proven industry-leading methodologies to positively transform organizations effectively in as little as six months after clients start the program.
