SAN DIEGO, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartDrive Systems, a leader in driving performance solutions that reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency, has been named the gold winner in the Most Innovative Company of the Year category in the Best in Biz Awards 2017 International, the only independent global business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications around the world.
SmartDrive has transformed the trucking and transit sectors by delivering actionable data through its innovative video-based safety and analytics platform. Through breakthrough developments and competitive differentiators including its SmartDrive SmartIQ™ Transportation Intelligence Suite, 360-degree video coverage, intelligent triggering technology and an expansive patent portfolio, the company has delivered enhanced value to fleets of all sizes. SmartDrive taps the power of big data, enabling fleets to make better, more informed business decisions, thus lowering operational costs and strengthening safety. Unlike many fleet technology systems that deliver volumes of complicated data, the SmartDrive® program provides prescriptive analytics, management KPIs and actionable fleet intelligence through a managed service.
"SmartDrive is committed to continuous innovation, backed by a track record of industry-leading products and services that have set the standard for video-based safety and deliver measurable and sustained value to customers," said Steve Mitgang, SmartDrive CEO. "We are honored to receive this Best in Biz International Award and celebrate the recognition of our pioneering technology and approach to delivering customer success."
Almost 300 public and private companies hailing from all sectors of the global economy from more than 30 countries competed in Best in Biz Awards' fifth annual International program. Best in Biz Awards 2017 International honors were once again presented in a range of categories, including Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Support Department of the Year, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product, Enterprise Product and Consumer Product of the Year.
Winners in the 5th annual program were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of judges from a wide spectrum of top-tier publications and media outlets and from 15 countries and all continents. Best in Biz Awards' uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panels. Each year, only editors, writers and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards can best leverage the expertise, experience and objectivity of its influential judges to determine award winners.
"I love seeing how, every year, the set of participants is different but the best entries always pivot around the same mantra: solving problems," said Jaime Rodriguez-Guerra, Computer Hoy (Spain). "While I admit that my expectations, after having judged prior Best in Biz Awards, were already high, after a thorough revision of this year's entries I remain in awe."
