The utility provider will integrate the solution for its fleet of over 1,000 vehicles as part of its strategic safety program
COMMACK, N.Y., October 27, 2021 – IntelliShift, the leading cloud-based fleet and safety management platform, today announced that UGI Utilities, Inc. has adopted IntelliShift’s in-cab AI Video solution across its fleet of commercial vehicles. UGI, a natural gas and electric utility committed to delivering reliable, safe, and affordable energy, will leverage the technology to deliver proactive coaching to drivers and improve data-driven decision making – key components of its driver safety strategy.
As a company, UGI is committed to a safety culture that protects employees, customers and the community. It needed a solution to provide proactive driver coaching and enhanced safety practices, greater data accuracy and transparency, and one that could fully integrate with its emergency dispatch system to continuously improve response time.
“As we reviewed the data, it became clear that integrating IntelliShift with AI Video could help us address issues at the individual driver level,” said Joe Kopalek, Vice President, Environment, Health and Safety of UGI Utilities. “We needed to be more proactive, not reactive. After an exhaustive search, committed to finding a transparent, data-driven partner, we found what we were looking for in IntelliShift.”
Unfortunately, accidents can occur. While the continual goal of every safety minded business is to protect drivers and reduce incidents, the added ability to safeguard against potentially fraudulent claims and frivolous lawsuits is also important. IntelliShift’s AI Video solution helps by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), G-force sensors, and 360-degree video, alerting drivers to hazardous road conditions and unsafe driving behaviors. With the ability to integrate across key internal metrics, IntelliShift’s platform enables managers to tie performance directly to core safety goals.
“Our IntelliShift solution stands out for its ability to bring better visibility across business functions, improve driver collaboration and performance, and deliver best-in-class reporting,” said John Cunningham, Founder and CEO of IntelliShift. “Businesses like UGI benefit from the understanding that growth and safety go hand in hand. Protecting people and assets starts with smarter decisions based on actionable and reliable, holistic data.”
