Dolese Bros. Co., Oklahoma’s leading construction materials company, has deployed the Lytx DriveCam throughout its fleet of 540 vehicles in operations across two states.

Mark Helm, chairman of the board and president of Dolese, said, “Our commitment to safety led us to Lytx and its DriveCam in-vehicle technology, and since deployment we’ve been impressed with the results. Using these videos and paired with proper coaching, we believe that this system can help our drivers achieve an exceptionally high safety level and improve safety for our employees and the communities traveling around us. We’re looking forward to a successful long-term partnership with Lytx.”

Dolese’s management led the implementation of the program in their fleet through significant preparations and specific communication to their drivers. Within a short time, the company leveraged the program’s predictive analytics and driver coaching model to identify and improve drivers’ safety, reduce traffic violations and decrease driver incidents by more than 50 percent.

“Dolese’s early success with the Lytx DriveCam Program is a testament to its existing strong safety culture and its commitment to a successful implementation of our safety program,” said Paul Jones, enterprise commercial leader for Lytx. “They’ve achieved a remarkable 73 percent driver coaching effectiveness score in the first few months and drivers are rapidly improving, reflecting their high engagement with the program. Management is rewarding improved behavior, which boosts engagement further.”
