Nationwide partners with NoCell
Nationwide partnered with NoCell Technologies to offer its commercial fleet customers access to NoCell’s distracted driving management platform.
The technology helps remove distraction risks by disabling disruptive apps and cell phone capabilities while drivers are rolling, enabling employers to more effectively carry out their custom mobile device policies with their fleets. NoCell’s user data shows a more than 70% reduction in phone handling events after 10 days of use with customers.
“Trucking businesses have more advanced technology and safety cultures than ever before to reduce risks for drivers and the motorists around them, but it continues to be a challenge for risk managers to enforce mobile phone policies. We’re thrilled about this new partnership with NoCell to help hone in on those dangerous distraction risks as we deliver extraordinary risk mitigation for our customers complemented by deep industry expertise to protect them mile after mile.” – Gary Flaherty, senior vice president of E&S commercial auto at Nationwide.
Fleet managers will have the ability to choose which apps their drivers have access to while the vehicle is in motion. The NOCELL solution – compatible with both Android and IOS – uses an app on the driver’s device, a non-intrusive NOCELLtag connected to the vehicle, and a back-end system to detect when vehicles are in motion, disable unauthorized mobile phone capabilities, and alert fleet managers when phone handling events take place.
“The commercial driver has never been more important to our economy and country than they are today. We are excited for this partnership with Nationwide and the opportunity to extend the reach and deliver our best-in-class distracted driving mitigation platform to their customers.” – Sam Inman, CEO at NoCell Technologies.
