Samba MVRSync simplifies data access

SambaSafety, provider of cloud-based driver risk management solutions for industries with commercial and non-commercial drivers, has announced Samba MVRSync. This service lets companies use a driver’s pre-hire motor vehicle record (MVR) for post-hire driver monitoring, saving the time and expense of pulling an MVR twice.

MVRSync is a new feature of Samba DriverMonitor, a subscription-based driver monitoring service that manages all driver data and automatically checks for new violations, DUI/DWI convictions, invalid licenses, and approaching license or medical certification expiration dates. The feature leverages a candidate’s MVR from the pre-hire screening process to establish a driver risk baseline in post-hire monitoring, generating a highly accurate risk profile for a driver on day one without increasing the cost.

Typically, two departments within a company will pull MVRs, including a pre-hire MVR by someone in HR or recruiting and a post-hire MVR by the risk and safety department or the driver’s manager. With MVRSync, the original pre-hire MVR can be accessed for post-hire driver monitoring.

“Establishing a driver risk profile on day one with an MVR is a critical first step in monitoring and evaluating driver risk and is a common practice for any company that considers driver risk management a priority,” said Rich Lacey, executive vice-president, product & engineering at SambaSafety.  “But what has also become a common practice is paying for that MVR twice. We developed MVRSync because pulling a MVR an additional time is an extra expense our customers no longer needed to have.”
