Xemplar Drive – Smartphone Telematics for Small Business Fleets

Xemplar Insights, LLC ( is a US-based digital transformation company founded in 2017. It specializes in smartphone-based telematics and customer engagement solutions for insurance companies and small businesses. They have a suite of solutions, to suit various business situations but the most popular of them all is their solution(s) to enhance driving safety with an affordable price. With third generation of their software and over 100,000 drivers using their products and solutions, they are poised for significant growth in 2023.

One of Xemplar’s flagship products is Xemplar Drive ( – an affordable SaaS solution for small business owners having a fleet of drivers/vehicles to conduct their business. One of the biggest threats to businesses that rely on their fleets to get work done is unsafe driving of fleet vehicles.

Multimillion-dollar lawsuit judgements, exploding commercial auto premiums, and increasing government regulations can cripple businesses that do not protect themselves from at-fault accidents. Traditionally fleet managers and owners have relied on hardware telematics to better monitor fleet driver behavior and safety. However, most telematics solutions are expensive and tend to focus on operational metrics like idle time, stop time, dispatch, and routing. They may offer speeding alerts or some vehicle safety metrics, but a comprehensive driving behavior analysis of the drivers is not the core focus.

Xemplar Drive changes how fleet managers can manage and reduce the risks associated with unsafe fleet driving. Xemplar Drive enables drivers and fleet managers with Collaborative Risk Management features that improve safety by reducing risky driving behaviors that can cause at-fault accidents. It does this by giving drivers and fleet managers actionable insights into the who, what, when, and where of high-risk driving, and all at a cost that is significantly lower than hardware-based telematics.

Xemplar Drive is smartphone telematics, so there is no pricey hardware to install in fleet vehicles or high-cost data plans needed to collect data. The smartphone’s GPS location services and sensors are all that is needed to start trip detection and identify and score high-risk driving behaviors like phone usage, speeding, hard braking, rapid acceleration, and unsafe turning.

Xemplar Drive is a subscription-based solution and delivered as an app downloaded onto drivers’ phones or mobile devices. On when on duty, every trip taken is automatically detected, recorded, and scored for safety, and the safety score is reported to the driver. The mobile app shows drivers the high-risk driving behaviors that occurred during that trip and gives them insights into how their safety scores are trending compared to other fleet drivers. Drivers who are aware of their high-risk driving behaviors can take action to correct those behaviors and drive safer, and Xemplar Drive will provide feedback to reinforce the fleet’s safety culture and motivate the driver to drive safely.

Xemplar Drive solution and price also includes a Fleet Manager Portal which gives fleet-wide safety metrics that can be drilled down to individual drivers and trips for more detailed analysis. This web-based portal also gives fleet managers vehicle level reports that include mileage for scheduling maintenance, as well as driver logbooks for travel and stop time productivity analysis. Fleet managers can also communicate with drivers using non-distracting mobile push notifications, that appear on lock screen as well as within the app, and comply with preferences and settings on the phone. This is much less distracting and safer than texting or calling drivers when they are on the move.

Using Xemplar Drive, fleet managers can motivate and encourage fleet drivers to embrace a “safety mindset”. From the portal fleet managers can create safety campaigns that recognize drivers who maintain safe driving scores above a pre-set threshold. Xemplar Drive automatically updates drivers on the safety campaign and notifies those drivers who qualify for safe driving recognition. Fleet managers can choose how to recognize safe drivers with awards, prizes, or other incentives.

Every business, no matter the size, is threatened by at-fault accidents. Those fleets that need a lower cost, safety focused solution that puts the power of collaborative loss control into the hands of fleet drivers and fleet managers will find tremendous value and “peace of mind” in Xemplar Drive. Xemplar Drive enables drivers and fleet managers with actionable driver safety data that can protect their business and save lives, and all for around $5.00 per driver per month. Xemplar even offers a 30-day free trail to make sure their customers are 100% satisfied before signing up.
