ZoomSafer Raises $1.1 Million, Seeks To Prevent 'Distracted Driving'

ZoomSafer, developer of safe driving software for mobile phones, has raised an additional $1.1 million round of financing from White Birch Capital and SugarOak Holdings, bringing the company’s total capital raised to $3.35 million.

ZoomSafer provides risk management software to control and prevent employee use of mobile phones to text, email or browse the web while driving, which it says one of the most difficult challenges fleet operators face today.

For fleets equipped with smartphones, FleetSafer Mobile delivers an active policy enforcement solution that automatically prevents employees from texting, emailing or browsing the web while driving. For fleets equipped with any other type of mobile phone, the company also offers a cloud-based analytics service that enables companies to empirically measure employee use of phones while driving, with no on-device software required.
