inthinc Recognized as Green Business Award Winner
SALT LAKE CITY - 11/21/2011 - inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global telematics company centered on fleet management and driver safety solutions, today announced it has received a Utah Business magazine 2011 Green Business Award for its contributions in reducing the carbon footprint and improving the environment. Cutting carbon emissions is a primary focus for the company, having developed specific technology to reduce idle time, speeding and aggressive driving - while measuring fuel usage and efficiency.
"We are pleased to be recognized as a company that contributes to improving the environment," said inthinc CEO, Todd Follmer. "We believe that adopting green practices is a matter of changing behavior - and ultimately forming better driving habits - one day at a time."
With inthinc technology, drivers receive verbal alerts via an in-cab device when their vehicle is left idling. Alerts are also triggered if drivers exceed the posted speed limit or exhibit aggressive driving behavior - behaviors which have been proven to waste fuel and negatively impact the environment. Current inthinc customers have experienced significant improvements in fuel consumption, maintenance costs and crash reduction, and drivers are safer because they drive less aggressively and obey the speed limit. In addition, the atmosphere absorbs up to 50 percent less CO2.
"Utah Business magazine's Green Business Awards program honors organizations that are working to make Utah - and the world - a greener place," said Sarah Ryther Francom, managing editor at Utah Business magazine. "inthinc is an example of a Utah-based company that is leading the way toward environmental awareness and sustainability. We applaud the company's fleet management software solution that helps individuals change their driving habits and ultimately cuts carbon dioxide emissions."
