Fortune 500 Firms Deploying Distracted Driving Technology at Steady Pace According to Cellcontrol

Largest Deployment Includes a Fleet of More Than 8,500 Company Vehicles Protected by Cellcontrol

BATON ROUGE, LA--(Marketwired - December 13, 2016) - Cellcontrol, the technology leader in stopping distracted driving, announced today that Fortune 500 firms are steadily deploying its distracted driving technology to ensure that employees remain compliant with company policies and procedures related to the use of mobile devices in their company vehicles. In 2016 Cellcontrol grew its Fortune 500 customer based by 56% compared to the previous year. Cellcontrol's Fortune customers represent a broad range of industries including insurance, oil and gas, telecommunications, transportation, etc.

Cellcontrol's technology, which recently received a praising review by Consumer Reports magazine, is the only product available to block (not just audit) all or just some of the features and functionality of both Android and iOS mobile devices, making it literally the only platform available for Fortune 500 firms. In its largest deployment by a Fortune 500 firm, Cellcontrol protects over 8,500 company vehicles (nationwide) on a daily basis. Cellcontrol technology is also compliant with the recent National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration guidelines set for auto manufacturers and wireless carriers relating to the adoption of distracted driving technology.

"Fortune 500 firms are some of the quickest enterprises to adopt distracted driving technology because they realize the consequences to their brand, reputation and pocketbook should one of their mobile employees be found responsible for causing an accident while using a mobile device," said Robert Guba, CEO of Cellcontrol. "Once auto manufacturers allow it, Cellcontrol's patented technology can also be embedded into the infotainment systems of vehicles, which would make it even easier for Fortune 500 firms to manage their employees use of a mobile device while driving and on the job."
