Vancouver, BC | Seattle, WA - eBrake Technologies Inc., a mobile technology company that locks and prevents device access in moving vehicles, and RAM® Mounts, the leading manufacturer of rugged device mounting solutions, today announced a strategic partnership expected to greatly reduce distracted driving on North American roads - starting with fleets.
The partnership will result in an enhanced driver safety solution for fleets consisting of RAM® mounted devices powered by eBrake’s distracted driving app. The new solution will result in the only universal, distraction-free, in-vehicle environment for fleet drivers.
“We’re obviously thrilled to partner with a market leader like RAM® Mounts,” said Colin Osing, CMO at eBrake Technologies. “eBrake and RAM® Mounts will protect the safety of drivers, reduce liability risk and expenses for fleet owners, and give fleet managers piece of mind knowing their drivers are complying with safe driving policies.”
“Keeping devices in front of the driver’s eyes but out of their hands is the first step in yielding a distraction-free driving experience, said Andrew DeDonker, Product Marketing Manager for RAM® Mounts. “A device mounted in a viewable location and powered by eBrake, means drivers can safely view travel times, ELD logs, navigation and logistical information, without additional distractions and unwanted notifications from their devices.”
Distracted driving is now considered by most to be a global epidemic. Nearly 1.6 million people die and 50 million are injured each year from crashes due to distracted driving.
eBrake Technologies Inc. is a Vancouver, Canada-based mobile application development company founded June 2016. eBrake is the only hardware-free distracted driving solution that prevents a driver form unlocking and accessing their smartphone or tablet while driving. eBrake is available to fleets and insurance companies globally.
