SAN DIEGO, Aug. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lytx™, Inc., the global leader in video-based driver safety, today announced that MTR Western has deployed the Lytx DriveCam™ Program across its entire fleet of 160 vehicles. Seattle-based MTR Western has been providing the Pacific Northwest with outstanding motor coach service since 2003, specializing in commuter solutions, professional and college sports, corporate shuttle transportation and any special event that requires custom transportation.
The Lytx DriveCam Program helps prevent collisions, reduce injuries and save lives by combining video with predictive analytics, real-time driver feedback and coaching, empowering fleets to identify and correct driving behaviors that could lead to collisions. MTR Western chose to roll out the DriveCam technology fleet-wide, in part, because of the program's patented, iterative process of scoring, prioritizing and tracking the results of driving behaviors. The DriveCam program identifies behavioral improvement opportunities for increased safety and passes them on to the fleet for use in coaching drivers, resulting in a streamlined safety process for the fleet.
"We take the safety of our clients and drivers and all of our employees very seriously. Being safe is an active part of our daily routine," said Jeremy Butzlaff Chief Operating Officer for MTR Western. "When you provide a critical service, and the safe operation of your business is paramount, there is very little room for error, which is why we selected the DriveCam Program for our driver safety solution."
"We are proud to be associated with a MTR Western, a premier transportation service provider and to help further their commitment to driver excellence and safety through the DriveCam Program," said Adam McCarty, Vice-President, Mid-Market Team for Lytx.
Top industry leaders in every significant commercial transportation segment choose Lytx. Lytx's success can be attributed to the company's comprehensive program that includes best practices benchmarking by industry, as well as access to subject matter experts who aid in minimizing financial, operational, legal, and driver risk. Furthermore, the program combines an innovative, open architecture with an upgradable technology platform and proprietary analytics. As the only provider that has deployed its solutions fleet-wide to organizations with enterprise-scaled fleets, Lytx has developed proven industry-leading methodologies to positively transform organizations effectively and deliver return on investment in as little as six months of program launch.
