Lytx Expands Its Portfolio with DC Protect, Company’s First Video-based Safety Program Optimized for Mid-sized Commercial Fleets

Lytx, Inc. (formerly DriveCam, Inc.), a global leader in delivering video-based driver safety and compliance solutions, today announced the availability of DC Protect, a new Lytx program designed to meet the unique needs of fleets with fewer than 350 vehicles, low insurance deductibles and limited safety resources. Building upon the insights gained from delivering the company’s flagship DriveCam powered by Lytx Program to hundreds of fleets worldwide, the DC Protect Program is an optimized solution with self-service tools that help smaller fleets improve safety and protect drivers. Using the company’s proprietary Lytx Safety Score, DC Protect helps identify and manage the drivers who would benefit most from coaching and performance improvement.

“Recognizing that one program doesn’t fit all, we’ve added DC Protect to our portfolio of powered by Lytx solutions which includes: DC Enterprise for large, multi-site fleets; DC Highway and RAIR® Compliance Services for the trucking market, and fleet tracking and fuel management service bundles,” said Rob Bartels, senior vice president, new ventures at Lytx.

“DC Protect is a market-driven solution that is tailor-made for smaller, often lean organizations that still need and want to actively protect their fleets. DC Protect enables fleets to increase safety and significantly reduce collision costs - two powerful competitive advantages,” said Adam McCarty, general manager, mid-markets at Lytx. “We’re proud to offer this right-sized program that can be easily managed while also providing important safety benefits and delivering significant ROI for mid-sized fleets.”

DC Protect

  • The Power of Video – DC Protect harnesses the power of video to enable fleet managers to protect 100% of their fleet, exonerate drivers from false claims, improve driver safety, and significantly reduce collision costs. The in-vehicle video event recorder captures events and analyzes behavior while providing real-time feedback to help keep drivers safe.
  • Lytx Safety Score -- Using the patented Lytx Engine, the Lytx Safety Score assesses the probability of being in a collision based on data from more than 25 billion miles driven and collected over more than 15 years. By understanding how behavioral patterns are indicative of risky driving behavior, DC Protect prioritizes drivers based on their risk assessment.
  • Streamlined, Optimized Safety Program – Fleet managers can focus quickly on drivers with a higher probability of being involved in a collision to help predict and reduce the frequency and severity of collisions. Video events from actively managed drivers are captured and uploaded to the Lytx review center. Events are immediately available on the DriveCam Online® platform and those with risk identified are marked for coaching so that client supervisors can conduct coaching sessions and improve driver performance. Events for all other drivers can be selectively retrieved as needed in the event of a collision or other incident.

Lytx combines video with predictive analytics and a cloud-based platform to help prevent collisions, reduce injuries and save lives. A recent Virginia Tech study showed that more than 800 lives could be saved each year using video-based driver safety technology, and that the DriveCam® Program could prevent more than 25,000 commercial vehicle collisions and nearly 40,000 injuries annually.
