9 Jan

For a fleet of any size, an enforceable smartphone distracted driving prevention and safety compliance program can cut losses related to vehicle accidents by up to 25% and save money on insurance

New York, NYShellback Business Services announced a new Smartphone Safe and Live Undistracted Monitoring App (http://liveundistracted.com) for commercial fleet managers of cars, vans, buses and trucks that will remove the temptation for drivers to take their eyes off the road due to distracted driving by storing their phones out-of-sight inside a special type of cell phone case called a Shellback Smartphone Safe.

Shellback Smartphone Safe ROI

“A low monthly fee costs just pennies a day, but provides a massive ROI as a stand-alone solution or in conjunction with your existing telematics solution,” said Michael Maguire, Shellback’s CEO and Founder. “And, if it prevents just one accident or provides indisputable evidence in defense of a negligent entrustment claim, the Shellback solution will yield a huge return-on-investment for our clients and any organization that allows individuals to drive while performing company business.”

Shellback Smartphone Safes

The Shellback Smartphone Safe provides intelligent cell phone storage and includes a cloud-based cell phone app, called the Live Undistracted Monitoring App for both Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy Smartphones (all Androids), which provides guaranteed confirmation that the phone is not a driving distraction or a company liability.

Shellback Smartphone Safes are lightweight, easy-to-carry and unlock, yet are very effective at improving driver behavior by requiring them to keep their eyes on the road while driving and to reinforce the policy that the only safe time to look at their phone is when drivers are parked in a safe location. The MSRP for the Shellback Smart Phone Safe starts at $20, which includes the Live Undistracted Monitoring App, and can be negotiated down for large purchase orders.

Shellback Live Undistracted Monitoring App

The Shellback Live Undistracted Monitoring App uses a centralized database so that administrators can manage multiple fleets at multiple locations. Fleet administrators can add or delete cell phones and users from the system, create regional teams of drivers and view daily, weekly, monthly and annual cell phone safety compliance reports and statistics.

The Live Undistracted Monitoring App is easy-to-install, simple-to-administer and provides commercial fleet operators with real time reports to ensure that their cell phone safety policies are being followed and that all state and federal laws are being obeyed.

Shellback Business Services Call Center

Another option is to outsource the Smartphone Safe Alerts and Compliance Reporting to Shellback Business Services, which is a large fleet monitoring call center, so that fleet dispatchers can focus on their core operations. The Shellback Live Undistracted Monitoring Service ranges from $15 to $5 per cell phone case per month based on monthly alert and reporting volume.

Potential Shellback Smartphone Safe Accident Prevention

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), on-the-job crashes cost employers more than:

  • $24,500 per crash
  • $150,000 per injury
  • $3.6 million per fatality

Shellback’s 2017 New Year’s Resolution for Drivers Facing Stiff New Penalties and Fines Associated with Talking, Texting and/or Even Holding a Smartphone While Driving

Buy a Smartphone Safe to store cell phones out-of-sight in a secured case that automatically notifies parents, fleet managers or employers if phones are being used while vehicles are in transit

 By Robert Hoskins

Los Angeles, CaliforniaShellback Smartphone Safes announced that the company wants to solve the #1 growing epidemic that is killing thousands of teenage and adults drivers every year — distracted driving — due to texting and/or talking on a cell phone.

Shellback Smartphone Safe Will Help Drivers Stop Texting and Driving Under New 2017 Laws that Prohibit Texting and Calling While Driving

Shellback Smartphone Safe Will Help Drivers Stop Texting and Driving Under New 2017 Laws that Prohibit Texting and Calling While Driving

The main cause of these accidents is the urge to look at a phone screen to read a text or to see who is calling on a cell phone or smartphone, which is like driving the full length of a football field blindfolded at 55 mph and twice as dangerous as driving drunk.

Yet, everyone who reads this will probably agree that they, too, have looked up from their cell phone just seconds before causing a preventable accident. The problem is that it takes two seconds to make a corrective action, which many times is too late.

“Our clients are having these types of problems when trying to manage their large commercial fleets. For example, one large Fortune 500 Company recently had a Responsible Vehicle Accident (RVA) resulting in a fatality. It was determined that the employee was texting while driving,” said Michael MaguireShellback Smartphone Safes‘ CEO. “And trying to figure out how to keep their driver’s eyes on the road is just half of the problem. They also need a solution to track drivers, guarantee that they were adhering to their company’s cell phone policy, and the ability to generate detailed driving compliance reports by enterprise, region, or for a specific driver.”

“As a result my brother, Thomas Maguire, and I invented the patent-pending Shellback Smartphone Safe, the only solution that actually confirms the phone is stored out-of-sight. This allows parents, fleet managers and anyone else that wants to regulate cell phone usage to generate accurate compliance reports in real-time,” Maguire continued. “Unlike other smartphone apps that are supposed to deter talking on cell phones, ours does not block a cell phone’s communication. The Smartphone Safe simply secures a phone inside a high-tech case that prevents a driver from looking at or reading a cell phone’s screen.”

The Smartphone Safe is the only solution that completely removes the phone as a driving distraction. The proprietary embedded technology confirms the phone is in the case, verifies that they are not able to see their phone, and sends alerts if the case is opened while driving.

“Combined with an app that runs on Apple iPhones and Android Smartphones, once a cell phone is stored in the ‘Smartphone Safe,’ it begins tracking the device as soon as the vehicle begins moving,” Thomas Maguire added. “If the Smartphone Safe is unlocked while the vehicles is on the road it automatically sends a report to the parent or fleet manager that records the GPS location, speed and direction of the vehicle and feeds the information into a compliance report for disciplinary action.”
