Fleet program seeks to cut down on crashes

Posted on January 12, 2010

HARTFORD, Conn. — Insurance provider The Hartford Financial Services Group today unveiled a new suite of technology-based risk management tools to help the company’s commercial fleet customers enhance the safety of their operations.

The Hartford’s FleetAhead offering includes in-vehicle driver feedback technology, loss control services and customized reporting tools to help fleet managers identify ways to improve safety and lower their vehicle operating costs. The Hartford will begin offering FleetAhead to customers of its School Bus Contractors Program this month.

“Improving passenger safety, reducing accidents and controlling costs are key concerns for school bus operators and all commercial fleet managers,” said Scott Stevens, assistant vice president of The Hartford’s captive and specialty programs.

For the school bus program, The Hartford selected GreenRoad as the technology-based service provider. GreenRoad’s service helps drivers identify and correct risky and inefficient maneuvers via a red-yellow-green LED display.
