SAN DIEGO, June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartDrive Systems, a leader in driving performance solutions that reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency, yesterday concluded the second of two sold-out customer conferences that brought together transportation industry leaders for two days of shared learning and collaboration.
The buzzed-about conferences took place May 22 and 23 in Atlanta and June 6 and 7 in Dallas. Attendees from across the country and from a variety of job functions, including C-suite, safety, operations, legal, human resources, risk and compliance gained a holistic view of advanced video-based safety and analytics, and the important role these technologies play in minimizing risk, improving driver behavior and enhancing operational efficiency.
A fleet-centered event, many of the sessions were led by SmartDrive customers, focusing on best practices in safety and operations. Attendees enjoyed training on the SmartDrive® platform, networking events and an all-new awards program. Participants also took advantage of one-on-one consultative opportunities with SmartDrive product experts, allowing for valuable insight into topics specific to their fleet.
"SmartDrive customers are among the most progressive companies in commercial transportation today. I felt a strong sense of community during these inaugural customer conferences, with people from different segments of the transportation industry coming together with a shared commitment to safety—for their drivers, their fleet and the motoring public," stated Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. "With many fleets citing the SmartDrive team's outstanding customer service and support as key factors in their selection of our solution, we remain firmly committed to maintaining the personal touch and continuing to drive added value in all we do."
