On the 11th July 2019, Applied Driving Techniques arrived at St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton with their fingers and toes crossed.

South Coast Business Awards 2019 invited the most inspiring organisations throughout Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to enjoy a night of celebrations.

The awards, organised by the Daily Echo in connection with Business South and Destination Southampton, recognised businesses across a range of categories. The finalists were awarded for innovation, technology, community and much more.

Applied Driving Techniques was a finalist in the Best Use of Technology category for its innovative new service, Applied Companion. It was up against other local businesses, Apps inthe Sky and Lucketts Travel.

The category judges were looking for:
  • How the business has used technology to stand out from its’ competitors
  • Demonstration of a creative and different way of working to keep the business fresh and responsive to changing customer needs
  • How the business has exceeded the expectations of its’ customers through use of technology

Applied Driving Techniques certainly delivered. Its brand new service begins from a simple smartphone app. Artificial intelligence (AI), algorithms and a clever use of smartphones’ in built sensors are all packed into the Applied Companion app. All of these features combine to create a unique tool that safety checks the behaviour and performance of drivers.

Companies enjoy the peace of mind knowing that ADT are fully managing their drivers in near real-time. Applied Companion keeps them safe by mitigating at-risk behaviour through automatic Triggered Training™. All learning solutions are tailored to each drivers individual behaviour profile.

Those utilising the power of Applied Companion witness a dramatic and sustainable reduction in at-risk driving events.

Applied Companion far exceeded the judges expectations and Applied Driving Techniques walked away with another trophy for the shelves. The ADT team were overwhelmed by their well-deserved win.

Andy Phillips, Global Managing Partner said: “I am deeply proud of the hard work the Applied Driving team has put into making our ground-breaking innovation a success. This award recognises their tireless efforts and the monumental impact Applied Companion has on revolutionising driver safety. Well done!”
