A tool hire company has experienced a 56% reduction in overall risk year-over-year thanks to Lytx video telematics and analytics solutions which have helped improve driver performance.

Since adopting the Lytx’s solutions a year ago, Brandon Hire Station has seen collisions and risky driving incidents fall by approximately 56% in one year, while following-distance events were down almost 75%.

They also experienced a 46% reduction in collisions, a 31% reduction in late responses, and a 25% reduction in other distracted driving incidents.

‘Our drivers have responded brilliantly to the introduction of Lytx,’ said Stuart Conway, fleet manager at Brandon Hire Station.

‘Overwhelmingly, they saw it as investment in their safety and their future and in the safety of other road users too. I’d like to think the very strong results we’ve already achieved are only the beginning.’

As well as implementing its video and analytic capabilities, the Lytx Driver Safety Programme has delivered prescriptive and customised coaching insights to Brandon Hire Station’s fleet managers.

Lytx leverages video, motion and engine control module sensors to present a view of risk with greater than 95% accuracy across more than 60 risky driving behaviours.

‘One major factor in our decision was that Lytx reviews the 12-second clips captured and uploaded by the cameras, and only sends us what we need to see,’ Mr Conway said.

‘Some of the other systems send you 15 hours of footage a day and we simply don’t have the capacity to go through all of that.’
