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.

ZoomSafer Offers Software and Analytics to Battle Distracted Driving
FleetSafer Mobile from ZoomSafer was designed to automatically encourage safe and legal use of cell phones while driving. Fleet-Safer Mobile consists of three components: an administrative portal to create, configure and manage cell phone policies; a client software application installed on the driver’s BlackBerry or Android smart phone; and a company-defined trigger mechanism.
FleetSafer automatically activates “safe mode” when employees begin driving, preventing them from texting, emailing or browsing — but still allows them to make and receive phone calls.
FleetSafer Vision is an analytics service for ARI fleets equipped with telematics systems. FleetSafer Vision combines cell phone usage data and vehicle trip data so employers can empirically measure employee use of cell phones while driving.
