Denver, CO. — SambaSafety, the nation’s leading provider of driver risk management solutions, will join a panel of leading experts to discuss the role of technology in fleet management safety at the NAFA Fleet Management Association’s Great Lakes and Tri-States chapters fall seminar on October 8, 2014.

SambaSafety’s Vice President of Sales Chris Stites will join panelists James Whineland, Regional Director for PHH Arval; and Craig Cheatle, Vice President of Sales with American Traffic Solutions (ATS) to outline best practices of leveraging data and technology to manage driver safety. Stites, a 20-year veteran in the technology business, directs and oversees nationwide sales initiatives for SambaSafety.

The Samba DriverMonitor℠ service manages and tracks the performance of drivers nationwide who use company or personal vehicles as part of their job. This solution gives organizations the ability to monitor all driver behavior through an easy-to-use and intuitive cloud-based dashboard.

This service continuously monitors individual driving record data, automatically checking for new violations, including DUI or DWI convictions, license suspensions, cancellations, and approaching license renewal dates. By utilizing a common coding system for violations that goes beyond standard Motor Vehicle Records (MVRs), the innovative Samba DriverScore℠ provides a single “score” to assess individual driver performance — which is critical for consistent application and enforcement of driver policies across multiple states. Each month, a concise report identifies new incidents and alerts management to the most critical driver issues.
