In a report released late last year, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed a dramatic increase in vehicular fatalities, spotlighting the need for more proactive live-saving measures to be taken.
Despite a decline in driving throughout the country, the number of fatalities reported in the first three months of 2021 was 10.5% higher than those projected during the same time in 2020. The NHTSA’s report identified motorist and truck driving behaviors contributing to these fatalities, which include:
- Distracted driving
- Failure to wear seat belts
To achieve better protection for all drivers on the road, fleet managers have an opportunity to prevent risky driver behavior through the use of smart safety apps. Speed, seat belt use, and focus on the road can be effectively monitored and managed through telematics solutions from providers like SafeSpeed and LifeSaver.
Roadz provides fleets with easy access to these safety apps and plenty more through an ecosystem of carefully curated solutions that offer an integrated and unified experience to its fleet users.
Implementation of these solutions plus comprehensive driver training can put fleets on a path toward more proactive risk management and better accident prevention for all drivers. Read the press release and report from the NHTSA to learn more.

Various stakeholders like fleet and safety managers who are tasked with fleet management are in a very stressful position. They are constantly in a fire-fighting mode and need to make quick decisions to balance the goals of reducing operating costs, increasing productivity, and improving safety and compliance.
It’s a lot to handle. Sure, there are thousands of solutions in the market to help bear the burden, but the reality is that in many cases they are not aware of the most innovative solutions. If they are using solutions, their experience is siloed and they have to hop from dashboard to dashboard to access data that isn’t integrated. So all said and done, they end up making sub-optimal business decisions.
What fleets really want is:
- Integrated data across platforms for smarter decision making
- A single-pane-of-glass interface for a unified experience
- A one-stop shop for streamlined solution search and discovery
The solution for addressing what fleet wants is simple: integrated ecosystems. Ecosystems both in the B2C (Apple, Android) and B2B (Salesforce AppExchange) exist today. However, they will spearhead the future of fleet management. While solution providers may wish to build their own ecosystems, such efforts will add a significant cost burden and can take years to develop, not to mention resources that would likely be redirected from growing core products.
Roadz can help fleet management solution providers connect their fleet customers to an open and integrated ecosystem in a fraction of time and cost. The Roadz Marketplace provides a unique user-experience to fleet stakeholders who can browse and buy curated solutions via a unified interface, and make optimal business decisions based on integrated data.
