The program offers three main products to help fleets face current challenges.
A video-safety solution designed for small to mid-sized fleets, Solera Protect (formerly SmartDrive Protect) identifies driver behavior and provides coaching where needed to improve their safety on the road or to reward excellent driving. Video technology can also exonerate fleets from costly legal action due to road incidents and protect them from fraudulent claims.
Solera Mentor helps customers reduce collisions, injuries, license violations, carbon emissions, and total cost of vehicle ownership through its patented, closed-loop, driver behavior-based safety programs. In addition to identifying risky driving behavior, Solera Mentor provides in-app micro-training coaching, rewards and gamification.
