TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AlertDriving, the global leader in driver risk management, announced today that its channel partnership program, ADvantage, has expanded to the Philippines. As a certified AlertDriving partner, Socialites Driving Institute can now help fleets thrive in the Philippines’ growing transport sector with FleetDefenseSM, the world’s most extensive, fully integrated driver risk management program.
Leading consultancy firm Deloitte expects the Philippines to emerge as one of Asia Pacific’s major growth centers in the next 20 years. Up by 10% each year, the Philippines’ transport sector is seeing fresh new investment as demand for manufacturing builds worldwide, and companies seeking high-value investment are integrating key sectors of the Philippine economy—specifically transportation and logistics. In the years to come, Asia’s third largest fleet market (behind India and Japan) will soon see more company drivers and riders on its roads, though the increased exposure to traffic will also add to their risk—by as much as 50%, according to some estimates.
Socialites Driving Institute, spread across Metro Manilla with over 100 registration centers, has a long, storied history of improving driver safety (who hasn’t seen their trademark red booth with yellow-black striping across the top and bottom?). Driving generations for over 45 years, Socialites Driving Institute helps drivers young and old learn the basics on the rules of the road and other topics—from saving on auto insurance and vehicle maintenance to backing or maneuvering, highway driving, and navigating flooded roads.
FleetDefense’s broad, fully interactive safety training courseware covers these skills, a crucial asset as Socialites Driving Institute launches into a market defined as much by its history as its potential for future growth.
“The market for fleet risk management solutions is worth an estimated $1 billion worldwide,” says Rob Martin, Vice President of Sales at AlertDriving. “With all ADvantage partners, we deliver real, meaningful incentives and tools to help them actually grow their business—or in the case of Socialites Driving Institute, start one.”
