Zendrive’s AI-powered platform for safety and risk assessment, which analyzed more than 15 billion miles and millions of drivers, already understands dangerous habits such as hard braking, fast acceleration, speeding, and others. Under the terms of the partnership, the companies will develop additional strategic uses of Zendrive’s AI technology and data, for large-scale solutions that deliver new levels of safety and cost savings for the driving public.
“Understanding driving behavior and trends has a transformative effect on how people act behind the wheel,” said Jonathan Matus, CEO and co-founder, Zendrive. “We’ve seen this in fleets, which use our analysis and insights to protect drivers and lower insurance costs. For the first time ever, these advanced AI tools will power consumer savings, allowing us to provide even more benefits to GasBuddy’s highly engaged driving community.”
For Zendrive, the partnership represents the firm’s first move beyond road safety to consumer cost savings. GasBuddy joins Zendrive’s roster of premium consumer app partners, alongside Life360, a leader in driver protection and family safety, with tens of millions of registered users worldwide.
For GasBuddy, the deal not only reflects its commitment to helping millions of drivers save money, but also to exploring advanced technologies that can unlock even more powerful value for drivers.
The benefit of partnering with Zendrive was apparent through GasBuddy’s due diligence. ”
Of the driver analytics platforms GasBuddy evaluated, Zendrive stood out on the strength of their technology,” said Sarah McCrary, chief operating officer at GasBuddy. “We are committed to constantly providing additional value and delivering an awesome user experience to GasBuddy users, and Zendrive’s developer platform exceeded our expectations for performance, ease of integration, and shared culture of rapid innovation.”
