SAN DIEGO, Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartDrive Systems, a leader in driving performance solutions that reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency, today announced that SmartIQ Transportation Intelligence Suite, which transforms massive volumes of data generated by commercial fleets into real-time actionable information, received the Business Intelligence Group's BIG Award for Business and was named 2016 New Product of the Year. In recognition of the SmartDrive solution's industry leading attributes, including its modern data architecture, real-time video integration and advance visualization capabilities, Business Intelligence Group selected SmartIQ as a leading product in the transportation technology sector.
"We're proud to be recognized for SmartIQ and for our continued innovation in video safety and analytics," noted Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. "Today's fleets need a platform that creates new opportunities to unlock the value of their technological investments by moving beyond just reporting and toward information sharing and real-time insights. SmartIQ does just that."
Launched in early 2016 and lauded as the first and only comprehensive transportation intelligence suite available to commercial fleets, SmartIQ is a distinct solution that links driver behavioral data to the enormous amount of data sourced from a multitude of separate vehicle systems, manages that data efficiently, and analyzes it at scale and in real-time. The SmartIQ Suite is a unique platform that offers actionable operational metrics, management KPIs, reports and dashboards for managers and interactive visualizations for advanced analysis. While drivers present the single largest opportunity to reduce avoidable fleet costs, measuring their performance had previously relied on vehicle data and historical driver information that are subject to interpretation and often leave more questions than answers.
"Differentiation is a common theme among many of our winners, and we hope that trend continues," said Russ Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group. "Modern companies are now relying on their customers for inspiration and direction to improve and launch new products. We are so proud of all of the winners this year. It is truly a select group."
Organizations from across the globe submitted their companies, products, and executives for consideration in the 2016 BIG Award for Business. Nominations were then judged by a select group of business leaders who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions and provide feedback.
