CyntrX Meets Customer Expectations for Latest Safety Innovations with SpeedGauge Speed Monitoring Service

New partnership allows safety managers to more closely monitor the easiest driver behavior to control - speeding

De Pere, WI – February 8, 2016 - CyntrX, a leading Telematics service provider in the US and Canada, announces its service partnership with SpeedGauge, an international provider of driver behavior and speed management solutions. The partnership is designed to expand the CyntrX service offering with an advanced speed monitoring tool for fleet managers focused on improving safety and performance related to road speed and driving patterns in North America.

According to the American Trucking Association, speeding has the following impact on safety and performance:

  • Fatal speed related crashes in 2013 – 898
  • Speed related injury crashes in 2013 – 16,790
  • Speed related crashes with property damage in 2013 – 37,950
  • $15 additional maintenance cost per thousand miles driven on all road types

“Speeding is a significant safety priority for our 900 plus fleet customers, and finding a partner that aligned with our customer experience focus led us to SpeedGauge”, said Greg Taisto, President and CEO. “Our partnership with SpeedGauge demonstrates our commitment to simplifying technology used for safety and performance in our rapidly growing fleet of fifteen thousand vehicles diligently supported every single day.”

CyntrX offers the SpeedGauge Safety Center as a value-added option to all customers and is compatible with systems installed after 2009. The feature is easily enabled on a per-vehicle basis through the website, and instantly begins comparing vehicle speeds against posted legal speed limits on interstates, frontage roads, and rural and urban streets. These speed limits are constantly maintained and updated in the SpeedGauge database. The Safety Center also allows fleet managers to set customized speeding thresholds, and receive real-time reports of speeding incidents. CyntrX expects quick adoption of the new service in three thousand vehicles in the ten largest fleet customers currently using its monitoring solution. 

“SpeedGauge has been offering insight and analytics to the commercial transportation industry since 2008, and this latest partnership with CyntrX shows that we are leading the industry in safety and performance innovation,” said SpeedGauge CEO, Jonathan Hubbard. “We are very happy to extend our innovative service to the thousands of commercial vehicles that CyntrX monitors, and we look forward to a successful partnership that will continue to offer SpeedGauge’s best-in-the-industry technology innovations.”
