Telogis’ expertise in vehicle safety solutions supports Brake’s national road safety campaigns
Telogis, provider of solutions for driver and commercial vehicle productivity and safety, has become a corporate partner of Brake, the road safety charity. Brake is a national charity, partly funded through government grants that promotes road safety awareness, safe and sustainable road use and effective road safety policies. As a partner, Telogis will provide financial support, speakers and information to promote Brake’s practitioner services and Fleet Safety Forum, as well as participate in the flagship road safety event, Road Safety Week (November 2014). Telogis provides a cloud-based location intelligence platform for companies that require advanced telematics, route optimisation and planning, real-time work order management and mobile integration services for their mobile workforces.
Joe Burns, Fundraising Officer at Brake said; “Brake offers events, resources and training to help fleets, employers, road safety professionals, victim support practitioners and others to work effectively towards safer roads and better support for victims.
“This new partnership with Telogis is a natural fit. Working with our corporate partners we share best practice and encourage cooperation and progress within the road safety, fleet and support sectors to benefit road safety. The Telogis team will bring expert advice to support our practitioner services.”
Sergio Barata, General Manager of Telogis EMEA commented; “Brake works with companies with mobile workforces to help them cut costs and prevent crashes through its fleet safety events and resources. Our business goals align well with Brake’s charitable aims and as a corporate partner, we are able to provide guidance and information to support Brake’s events that aim to promote best practices in road safety. Telogis solutions for the mobile workforce enable companies to significantly improve safety and vehicle usage, reinforcing Brake’s important campaign work.”
Telogis’ cloud based location intelligence solutions enable fleet managers to connect to driver vehicles via popular mobile devices and operating systems (phones and tablets) to track and provide re-routing information, job specifications and traffic and safety details. Telogis Coach delivers a snapshot of the day’s events directly to the drivers’ mobile device and helps drivers understand what behaviours and practices need improvement, and how the overall quality and safety of their driving habits fit into the goals of the organisation.
