SmartDrive Systems, a leader in driving performance solutions that reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency, has announced that its SmartIQ™ Transportation Intelligence Suite has been recognized with a bronze award for the New Product or Service of the Year, in the fifteenth annual American Business Awards (ABAs).


The ABAs, also known as the Stevies, are the nation’s premier business awards recognizing achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals. The Stevie Award for New Product or Service is the top honor for software development.


SmartDrive SmartIQ Suite was honored in the software-big data solution subcategory. A platform that transforms massive volumes of data generated by commercial fleets into real-time actionable information, predictive analysis and prescriptive actions, SmartIQ analytics drives measurable value for businesses.


The SmartIQ Suite brings the power of real-time transportation intelligence to every fleet by combining a rich variety of data, in high-volume and at high-velocity, to provide the missing intelligence link for fleets—definitive driver performance data combined with vehicle systems data. For every 10% improvement in the SmartIQ Safety Score, there is an 8.2% reduction in collisions.


“SmartDrive is dedicated to providing its customers with the most reliable, innovative solutions that drive safety and efficiency improvements across a wide variety of transportation operations,” said Steve Mitgang, SmartDrive CEO. “We’re honored to be recognized with this Stevie Award and value this reaffirmation of our approach to tapping the combined potential of video and big data to deliver meaningful results for our clients.”


SmartDrive customers have experienced vast improvements to their safety performance as a result of adopting SmartIQ analytics. For instance, Nussbaum Transportation improved its score in the Compliance Safety Accountability Crash Indicator Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category by more than 70%.


“Each year the judges find the quality and variety of the nominations to be greater than the year before,” said Michael Gallagher, President and Founder of the Stevie Awards. “The 2017 competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud.”


Winners will be presented with their awards on June 20 in New York. Details about the Stevie Awards and the full list of 2017 New Product Award winners are available here.
