Jan. 10, 2013: NexTraq Fleet Tracking System Offers Distracted Driving Solution

January 10, 2013
ATLANTA — NexTraq®, a leading GPS fleet tracking and fleet management company, has released a new distracted driving solution called NexTraq DriveGuard™. According to the company, the solution allows companies to discourage distracted driving by blocking or restricting calls, texts, emails, web browsing, and more while driving.

NexTraq DriveGuard is powered by Cellcontrol, a distracted driving technology that uses a Bluetooth Trigger Unit coupled with a mobile application on a mobile device to block or restrict calls, emails, texting, and web browsing. NexTraq said DriveGuard is ideal for companies looking to maintain company policies concerning cell phone or mobile device use in vehicles and ensure driver safety, as well as their company reputation.

Because companies and individuals use multiple types of devices for different purposes and with different operating systems, DriveGuard offers a broad spectrum of device compatibility. The solution works on phones, smartphones, laptops, handhelds, and tablets using, among others, Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Java, and Windows systems.

Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq, said, “Our new distracted driving solution, NexTraq DriveGuard, is just one of many ways we are committed to providing businesses with the latest technology. With DriveGuard, our goal is to help companies reduce driver risk while simultaneously reducing costs, such as liability payments and insurance.”

The company said DriveGuard includes a number of user-friendly features, including automated SMS responses to callers that the driver is driving and will return calls and messages at a later time.
