Illume Software, developer of iZup mobile software that holds incoming and outgoing communications while driving, announced iZup Enterprise.


To reduce distracted driving among drivers, iZup automatically saves voice calls to voicemail while vehicles are in motion, and holds data interactions including text messages, until the product determines that the trip is completed. Additional features include the ability to prioritize a list of contacts to keep users in touch with only the most important people plus emergency services while driving.

The iZup Enterprise family of products includes administrative and reporting capabilities. It lets organizations of all sizes adopt technology to deter distracted driving among its mobile workforces, enforce corporate policies, mitigate rising risk and liability exposure, and ensure compliance with local, state, and federal regulations.

This first release of iZup Enterprise includes a host of server-based administration functions that allow administrators to easily add new users, assign phone usage priorities, and manage multiple accounts and groups. Reporting capabilities chart usage, events, and exceptions, and monitor white-listed number usage, passenger overrides and emergency calls.

IZup Enterprise is available immediately, and supports more than 120 handsets representing 70% of the installed base of smartphones in use today.

IZup Enterprise comes on the heels of an initiative by the office of Occupational Safety and Health Administration that puts responsibility for safeguarding drivers in the hands of the business owner. A recent OSHA publication stated, "Texting while driving puts millions of Americans who drive on the job at risk every day. As a business owner or manager, it's your legal responsibility under the Occupational Safety and Health Act to safeguard drivers at work."
