Friday, July 15, 2011's new "MVR ALERT" System Automatically Notifies YOU to Any Change in the Driving Record of Your Employees!

If your business relies on vehicles getting people and/or goods from point A to point B, then you're well aware of all the things that can go wrong in-between. Each vehicle and driver is the responsibility of the organization. You're insured, but even your insurance coverage is contingent on the fact that your employees maintain a nearly perfect driving record.

Relying on rumors and word of mouth from other employees is a dangerous, yet common method for employers to decide when to run a motor vehicle report on employees. Along with being a highly unreliable approach, you risk discrimination claims, negligent retention claims, wasted time and wasted money. For peace of mind and for the protection of your company, you need accurate information, and you need to know sooner than later when any of your driver's have been issued a violation.

The Solution...
We are pleased to introduce's new MVR ALERT system! With our new motor vehicle driving record alert system, YOU are notified automatically when any one of your drivers has a change to the status to their driving record. For example, an email "ALERT" is generated and sent directly to you when any of the following occur...
  • New Traffic Violations
  • Traffic Convictions
  • License Revocations
  • Licence Suspensions
  • License Expiration
  • Mandatory Renewals
The fact is, even if you currently run a driving record on new employees, it won't prevent the liability associated with violations that a driver incurs after that point.'s MVR ALERT automatically tracks and processes any required driving record reports from the first day of employment. Annual or quarterly driving records occur automatically and exactly when they're supposed to, from the point of hire onward. Furthermore, MVR ALERT monitors the driving record throughout the year. You'll know when an incident occurs, allowing you to take necessary measures now, instead of waiting months while the situation potentially becomes far more serious.

The Bottom Line...'s MVR ALERT system can reduce employer liability and ensure that only eligible drivers operate company and/or personal vehicles during company time. Our service automates and streamlines the way employers monitor their drivers and manage driving records. MVR ALERT automatically checks, tracks, organizes and pinpoints important driving record notifications to risk managers of new driving violations, DUI convictions, license suspensions, cancellations, revocations and approaching license renewal dates. Notices with summarized details of new occurrences will be provided to specified account managers/risk managers each month so appropriate actions may be taken to avoid costly claims, negative press coverage and administrative costs.
