Howard executives were interested in lowering their fleet’s insurance premiums as well as protecting the company’s drivers, vehicles, and reputation in the event of an accident. So, they initiated a search for a cost-effective dash cam option that would integrate across the company’s fleet of trucks. Although dashboard cameras can’t prevent accidents from happening, they can help prove responsibility.
A point of concern for company executives was ensuring that drivers were comfortable with the new technology. As a result, Howard needed to find dash cams that were technologically sophisticated but also easy to use.
After evaluation, the Howard team chose to install Rand McNally’s DashCam 500 across the fleet. The devices, while engineered to deliver high-quality video and still photos, are uncomplicated to use given a companion app for iOS™ and Android™ smart phones. The app makes it easy to save, organize, and share images. Additionally, the camera’s VideoKeeper™ feature helps ensure that videos are saved and not overwritten
