Smartphone Technology Keeps Eyes on the Road
In preventing distracted driving in your workplace, these companies have fleet-specific software for your cell phone policy needs.
Get iZup and Prevent Distracted Driving
Developed by Illume Software, iZup is a family of applications designed to leverage a mobile device’s GPS to divert text messages, emails and phone calls while the user is driving. The iZup family is available for more than 120 different smartphones, according to the manufacturer.
The orginal iZup allows three preprogrammed phone numbers and unlimited access to 911 but blocks all other mobile device functions. The program runs through GPS, and self-activates when vehicle speed surpasses 5 mph.
A second product, iZup Lite, blocks texting functions only, while a third option, iZup Enterprise, is specifically designed for organizations with large mobile workforces. This product features advanced administrative and reporting capabilities, including a tamper alert feature, which reports to managers when a driver is trying to get around the software.
