SambaSafety has acquired Vigillo, enhancing the company’s driver risk management platform for U.S. Department of Transportation regulated fleets.

SambaSafety’s driver risk management solution will be combined with Vigillo’s CSA Daylight Suite to offer customers both driver MVR and CSA violation and crash monitoring. This will help users manage and track the performance of drivers in all 50 states and identify and mitigate high-risk driver behavior.

“Our regulated customers will benefit by utilizing a single risk identification and mitigation dashboard combining both MVR data and CSA data,” said Richard Crawford, CEO of SambaSafety. “Vigillo is the industry leader in CSA monitoring and this addition greatly fortifies our vision of better drivers, lower risk and safer communities.”

Data and software from both companies will be combined to provide a complete picture of drivers’ performance both on and off the clock. For DOT-regulated fleets, pre-hire, and post-hire driver records can be synchronized into driver qualification files to help ensure that safe, policy-compliant drivers are on the road.

Vigillo CEO Steve Bryan will remain in charge of Vigillo and the company will retain its name.

“I founded Vigillo 10 years ago with the vision to bring world-class data analytics to bear on the complex safety data that surrounds the trucking industry. Our mission and vision was, and remains, to push the boundaries of data analytics to give safety professionals in this vital industry the tools they need to save lives,” Bryan said. “This combination with SambaSafety will only serve to accelerate that mission.”
