We would like to express our appreciation for one of our new customers. Not only are we glad to welcome them to our family of valued clients, but we also want to acknowledge the commendable, socially responsible mission they have chosen to pursue.
ORIGO recently approached ACI for help with website maintenance and IT consulting. We have been assisting them with multiple Drupal™ CMS websites as well as some of their back-office programming and server management through Rackspace®.
During our introduction to ORIGO, we learned that they have developed a product that is a true solution to distracted driving due to texting and mobile use. Deaths and injuries due to distracted driving have become pervasive with the digital age.
At any given daylight moment across America, approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving, a number that has held steady since 2010. (http://www.sdtrucksprings.com/Distracted-driving-statistics – Driver Electronic Device Use in 2011. (Report No. DOT HS 811 719).)
ORIGO has created an easily installed safety mechanism for vehicles that allows hands-free use and smartphone charging but removes the ability to text or manipulate a mobile device during driving. Their ORIGOSafe™ product can be used to protect you and your family from mobile device distraction. It can also be used as a fleet management safety and security tool.
We were so impressed with the product that we installed it in our own fleet, the ACI Leaf.
Drive ORIGO is an active member of the Roanoke Blacksburg Technology Council and has sourced all of their components and service providers in the local area. Hurrah!!
