DISTRACTED DRIVING PREVENTION COMPANY MOTION INTELLIGENCE DRIVES NEW PHASE OF INTERNATIONAL GROWTH UNDER ITS JAPAN COUNTRY MANAGER
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO– Sept. 25, 2020 — Motion Intelligence, a leading innovator in distracted driving technology, today launched its new business entity in Shinjuku, Japan, under the leadership of its Japan Country Manager, Shinji Uchida, to provide better access and support to its customers worldwide.
This move positions Motion Intelligence as a unique player in the industry by creating opportunities to accommodate rapid growth in the international market. The organization’s new Japan website has already jump-started its platform to reach a global market with its fleet safety solution to prevent distracted driving. Motion Intelligence has proudly partnered with Sompo Holdings and Mizuho to widely enable distracted driving prevention with smart technology throughout Japan. The opening of its Shinjuku, Japan, entity reinforces the localized support for Motion Intelligence’s flagship products: The Evvy app, the Motion IQ management dashboard, and the signaling device hardware, which is compliant with Japanese regulations.
“This launch is already bringing new opportunities for Motion Intelligence to drive our operations and better serve our customer base,” says Uchida. “Distracted driving is a worldwide problem, and our continued growth in the Japan market is an exciting expansion of our impact. We provide a solution to keep businesses in Japan compliant with the new laws, penalties and fines for distracted driving.”
Distracted driving is a problem that continues to grow in intensity. Despite Japan toughening its restrictions on smartphone use while driving, distracted drivers caused 2,790 accidents in 2018 — more than 1.4 times the previous year. Motion Intelligence’s software safety solution, which reduces drivers’ risk and helps protect the reputation of the fleet industry, is becoming more relevant year after year.
“We are concerned by the continuing rise in distracted driving accidents and deaths in our country and around the world. We are proud to partner with Motion Intelligence in order to use safety technology to help eliminate distracted driving caused by mobile device technology addiction,” says Koichi Narasaki, Group Chief Digital Officer with Sompo Holdings.
