2015 Winner Profile


Project Description:
ARI, part of the Holman Automotive Group Inc., is a global vehicle fleet management organization. It developed the ARI Driver Excellence program, which combines online tools, vehicle telematics and third-party data to improve employees' driving techniques and thereby reduce customers' accident-related vehicle costs, increase productivity and improve safety. The program includes an online driver skills assessment tool that rates the drivers' skill levels and then automatically assigns targeted online training. The training modules -- accessible through smartphones and tablets -- engage drivers through interactive exercises and activities. The system can also receive real-time vehicle telematics data about driver behavior and provide in-vehicle coaching. One client reported a 76 percent reduced crash rate. ARI, which acquired a leading online driver training company in order to fully develop this revenue-generating service, expects to use this system to enter the larger consumer market.
