Los Angeles, California – “Texting while Driving” is the #1 leading cause of teenage deaths in America. And, 64% of 2.5 million accidents each year, or 1.6 million crashes, are caused by a drivers that took their eyes off the road for less than 5 seconds in order to read their cell phone’s screen and/or send a text message while driving. These stats are growing annually to epidemic proportions even though 46 states and DC have passed laws that specifically outlaw talking on cell phones and texting while driving.

“Before Shellback Smartphone Safes were invented, it was almost impossible to enforce corporate cell phone safety policies,” said Michael Maguire, Shellback Smartphone Safe’s CEO. “But now it is possible for parents, business owners, and fleet safety managers to receive real time alerts and prevent accidents before they happen. They will always know when specific phones are not in use — especially when driving. In addition, the Smartphone Safe’s LED lights indicate to the driver that the Smartphone Safe is in ‘safe’ mode and fully compliant — making it easy to improve driver behavior.”

The Smartphone Safe tracks the phone continuously, but only reports violations of opening the case while driving. Back-end reporting makes it easy to identify and address your high-risk drivers and to recognize your safe drivers. Our cloud-based servers store all information and provide useful dashboards to improve your operations and reduce any liability. Finally — cell phone policies can be enforced and substantiated.

Over the past eighteen months, the Smartphones Safes have been tested in real world conditions. Driver behavior improves when they know there will consequences for violating the cell phone policy. Safety improves dramatically. Costs and liabilities are greatly reduced.

Shellback is raising $50,000 to fund its 1st large-scale manufacturing production run via an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign that begins on February 6th and ends on March 20, 2017.

The MSRP for the Smartphone Safe is $60 and a monthly monitoring fee of $15 per month or $240 per year, but the crowdfunding campaign will offer Early Bird Perks that offer Smartphone Safes and monthly monitoring for $74, $99, $140, and $150 until the limited supplies are gone.

It will also offer significant discounts to Cell Phone Case and Accessories Retailers, Resellers, Distributors and Fleet Managers that want to buy in bulk quantities of 10, 30, or 60 Smartphone Safes per order.

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.

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