To help businesses who have employees conducting business on the go, AT&T announced it will offer two mobile systems, Associate Pledge and SafeCell Enterprise. Both are aimed at reducing dangerous driving behavior among employees.

Available today, Associate Pledge is a mobile app that lets businesses conduct real-time monitoring and helps to enforce corporate policies on mobile devices while employees are driving. AT&T says it is best suited for mobile employees, fleet drivers and sales teams that regularly travel on company business or operate company vehicles. Employers can manage and restrict device use while employee vehicles are in motion, including blocking phone calls, text messages and push-to-talk capabilities.

With SafeCell Enterprise, businesses will be able to monitor employee device usage via GPS, gaining visibility into how fast employees are driving, and whether employees are in compliance with regulatory and corporate policies on their mobile devices while driving. This information, along with vehicle monitoring data will be combined in a single dashboard, allowing for monitoring and compliance with local, state and federal government restrictions around mobile device use.

The SafeCell Enterprise is being designed for businesses with commercial fleets and will integrate with fleet management systems that are typically used for vehicle monitoring and logging. SafeCell Enterprise will also allow an employer to block use of applications while in-transit, such as email, social media sites, texting and web browsing. AT&T is expected to make this product available in the coming weeks.

Associate Pledge from AT&T and SafeCell Enterprise powered by AT&T work across mobile device platforms and operating systems. No additional hardware purchase is required. More information is available at www.att.com/PLEDGE and www.att.com/safecell.
