Benefits of the Cover Whale Safety Program

For owner-operators

IMPROVED ROAD SAFETY

Dash cams improve vehicle safety and efficiency by identifying unsafe behaviors and coaching moments that help you improve your safety skills, avoid accidents and costly claims.

SAVES MONEY

With this information from the dash cam we’re able to provide lower insurance premiums than our competitors. Only footage relating to aggressive driving events and accidents are saved.

HELP WITH CLAIMS

Dash cams provide a wider range of visibility which can be used to dispute claims made by other motorists.

For fleet operators

ENHANCED DRIVER SAFETY

Dash cams improve both vehicle safety and operational efficiency by engaging in personalized driver coaching that highlights risk patterns, peer-compared risk scoring, and driver improvement metrics.

LOWER BACK-OFFICE COSTS

The dash cam safety program automates back-office reporting, such as IFTA, route sheets, and miles. In many cases it saves more money by replacing other pre-existing systems.

The program can help manage multiple vehicles in a fleet, with the option of sharing drivers’ locations with customers.
