Companies are liable for the negligent actions of their employees.
Every employer with a mobile work force is particularly at risk. Whether it’s a fleet of trucks, a sales force driving to appointments, or employees checking email on the way to or from the office, when your employees use mobile devices while driving, your company is at risk. If there is an accident and cell phones are in use, your company faces not only repair costs, potential worker compensation claims, bad publicity and higher insurance premiums, but also potentially significant legal judgments.
Prevention is the best policy
At Kyrus Mobile, we believe that prevention is the best policy. Companies with strong safety cultures implement policies restricting the use of phones and other mobile device while driving. Yet simply communicating the policy and reminding employees through training and other means is not enough. Under new government regulations and legal judgments, companies must also monitor and enforce compliance with those policies.
Taking away temptation
Our KyrusFleet™ solution takes away the temptation by disabling texting and other cell phone distractions when the vehicle is in motion. It is easy to use, activates instantly when the vehicle begins to move, and works seamlessly in the background. When the vehicle comes to a stop, the phone is instantly unlocked and ready for use.
Rich compliance reporting
Kyrus Mobile reduces risk and liability and eases compliance and audit requirements.
If there is an incident, our system provides detailed reporting and history to support legal discovery and demonstrate that the company did everything in its power to enforce its cell phone usage policy.
