Smith System fleet-management tools allow you to track fleet vehicles and monitor driver behavior with GPS location and telematics, then store and manage the data you collect in a single, powerful platform.


What are The Smith5Keys®?

Key 1. Aim High In Steering®

Key 2. Get The Big Picture®

Key 3. Keep Your Eyes Moving®

Key 4. Leave Yourself An Out®

One of the best services that Smith System has is the behind-the-wheel component because that really takes it out of the classroom and into the real world. Making sure that those concepts are applied in a real-world setting, in a semi-controlled environment, with an instructor there coaching the drivers and providing feedback is very beneficial.
