SAN DIEGO, June 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lytx™, Inc., the global leader in video-based driver safety, today announced that California-based rePlanet, LLC has signed a three-year, full-fleet deployment of the Lytx DC Protect™ Program. rePlanet is California's largest recycler with approximately 700 locations statewide. The agreement followed a successful head-to-head competitive trial where the DriveCam Program showed dramatic safety improvements in the rePlanet fleet: Nearly 60 percent reduction in risky driving frequency and severity, 70 percent reduction in traffic violations, and 80 percent reduction in mobile phone usage.
Lytx delivers comprehensive support and industry expertise to transform companies by minimizing financial, operational, legal, and driver risk in as little as six months after launching the DriveCam® Program.
"We take safety very seriously at rePlanet," said Tony Gallo, rePlanet VP of Sustainability. "The DC Protect Program helped us to pinpoint and focus on the regions and behaviors posing the greatest risk, and make substantial improvements compared to industry benchmarks. We'd recommend it to any company looking for an advanced fleet safety solution that's also easy to manage."
rePlanet deployed the DC Protect Program, specifically designed for companies that need an efficient way to address fleet-wide risk while not wanting to add resources to run the program. Using the company's proprietary Lytx Safety Score™, DC Protect helps identify and manage the drivers who will benefit most from coaching and performance improvement while exonerating safer drivers.
"rePlanet is committed to protecting the environment and the communities it serves," said Adam McCarty, Vice President, Mid-Market Team. "Lytx is equally as dedicated to supporting rePlanet's important work by providing an unparalleled safety solution they can count on to protect their drivers, their business, and everyone on the road."
