SAN DIEGO — Feb. 19, 2020 — Lytx® today announced results from 2019 that reflect the company’s continued success and industry leadership. According to analyst firm Frost & Sullivan, Lytx has 60% share of the total video safety market, more than triple the share of its nearest competitor.
“2019 was a phenomenal year for Lytx by any measure,” said Brandon Nixon, Lytx chairman and CEO. “It has been more than 20 years since we created the first technology in the video telematics space. As we enter this new decade, our future is brighter than ever.”
“Anyone can capture video from a vehicle,” Nixon continued. “But we have billions of miles of data and experience across thousands of fleets that enable us to make an effective behavior-change tool for fleets of all sizes. We decipher millions of hours of driving data a day and use it to deliver meaningful insights to clients that make a difference for their business. That’s why more and more fleets are turning to Lytx. We understand the challenges they face day-in and day-out and innovate to exceed their expectations.”
Innovation Fuels Client Success
Driving Lytx’s growth and continued success is the company’s relentless focus on customer-centered innovation, particularly in the fields of machine vision and artificial intelligence (MV+AI). Clients credit the company’s advanced technology, commercial grade hardware, configurable and flexible solutions, all-in-one telematics offerings, exceptional customer service, and superior return on investment as the key differentiators that lead them to deploy with Lytx.
Today, more than 4,000 organizations, with fleets of all sizes and across all sectors, are experiencing the benefits of Lytx first hand. In 2019, nearly 25% of new customers were fleets who switched to Lytx after using another video or telematics solution. The company also increased its base of protected drivers by 300,000.
