CEI’s DriverCare™ Prescriptive Analytics Fleet Safety Program Combines Predictive Modeling with Expert Recommendations to Identify High-Risk Drivers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Trevose, PA, April 17, 2017 – CEI announced the next level of the DriverCare™ Fleet Safety Program with its Prescriptive Analytics platform. Prescriptive Analytics builds on CEI’s earlier Predictive Analytics model, which allows a company to identify “previously-hidden” high-risk drivers, by adding expert consultative recommendation to prevent future collisions.

Using CEI’s exclusive modeling capability, developed in concert with the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, Virginia, can project, with greater accuracy than previous assessment techniques, drivers who may be “hidden” among a fleet’s safer risk category groups by providing quantitative future collision risk calculations for individual drivers.

According to Brian Kinniry, CEI’s senior director of strategic services, the actionable data allows the company’s consultation team to provide fleet managers with specific courses of action to best resolve potential future problems.

“Expanded Behind the wheel training, micro-targeted e-learning, managerial coaching intervention, and enhanced customized messaging communications are some of the possibilities to addressing accident prevention among a company’s group of predicted high-risk drivers,” notes Kinniry.

CEI will be exhibiting at the 2017 NAFA conference in Tampa, FL, booth #1011. The conference runs from 4/23 – 4/26. Members of the Prescriptive Analytics team will be on hand to discuss all aspects of the program.
