Automile Launches 'Celebrating Businesses with Workforce-on-Wheels' and Invites Companies to Share Fleet Safety Practices

Leader in Telematics and Connected Car Technology to Spotlight How Businesses Make Fleet Safety a Priority

PALO ALTO, CA and STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwired - Jun 16, 2016) - Automile, leading provider of a cloud-based, mobile and design-first Telematics solution, today announced the launch of a new initiative, 'Celebrating Businesses with Workforce-on-Wheels.' Through this ongoing program, Automile recognizes companies demonstrating exemplary fleet management processes. With June being National Safety Month, Automile currently seeks to highlight the businesses leading the way in safety for their drivers and vehicles and publicly share their successful practices.

"Keeping drivers safe is a business-critical issue for companies managing a mobile workforce behind wheels. When the community comes together to share their company's own safety practices, from training drivers to implementing best practices, everyone benefits from the power of many," said Jens Nylander, CEO and founder of Automile. "We are pleased to recognize the companies that are taking steps to keep their workforce safe and invite them to share their stories with us."

Through its 'Celebrating Businesses with Workforce-on-Wheels' initiative, Automile encourages businesses to share one tip or strategy they currently have in place or are planning to implement to create a safer mobile workforce by emailing team@automile.com. Automile will then reach out to schedule a 30-minute interview with each company that submits and spotlight their organization with a complimentary article on Automile's blog and recognition on its social media channels. 

The need for business owners and fleet leaders to improve their safety practices is clear; it is estimated the unsafe driving practices and motor vehicle crashes cost employers $60 billion annually in medical care, legal expenses, property damage and lost productivity. Yet, businesses are often left in the dark about what happens as a driver travels from point A to point B, having no visibility into whether the driver is speeding, braking harshly or otherwise partaking in unsafe behaviors. They may also be at risk if they lack a simple way to continually monitor and benchmark their behavior to ensure they follow company policies and practices for safe driving.

By highlighting the companies with proven strategies to mitigate safety risks, Automile's goal is to bring greater awareness to the practices that lead to safer operations.
