GreenRoad Technologies - GreenRoad Driver Behavior (EYMS)
EYMS was struggling to counteract the rising price of fuel when it first began looking for solutions. The team investigated a number of options but were attracted to GreenRoad because it did not need to interface with existing telematics and vehicle information. At that time, a significant proportion of the EYMS fleet did not have an Engine Control Unit (ECU).

For over a decade, GreenRoad’s connected vehicle solution has revolutionized the way commercial fleets drive by combining real-time, in-cab coaching with cloud-based contextual intelligence to make every business mile safer. GreenRoad’s IoT platform enables service providers to build zero-latency safety applications for connected vehicles and cities.
