"DriveCam helps us maintain superior customer care while lowering our insurance losses"” said David Seelinger, president of Empire. "I am not trying to promote a product, but DriveCam has saved us literally hundreds of thousands of dollars in reduced collisions. We have reduced our collisions by 62% and can now self-insure for collision coverage. I can’t say enough about it – it is a fantastic program for us."

DriveCam’s Driving Feedback System integrates video technology and management software to identify high-risk driving habits. Driving events are collected by DriveCam, a palm-sized video recorder mounted behind the rearview mirror that records what drivers see and hear. Video files are automatically downloaded to a computer, where HindSight 20/20 software allows managers to view and analyze driving performance. Videos can also be emailed directly to insurance carriers to settle claims.

"We are privileged to work with a quality company such as Empire, who is concerned about driver and passenger safety," said Ed Andrew, president of DriveCam. "DriveCam's Driving Feedback System provides a comprehensive program to monitor, track and improve driving performance. Improved driving performance not only impacts safety, but reduces risk and lowers operating expenses for commercial fleets."
