In the previous period all employees from service and system support department from company Megatrend Business Solutions passed Eco-driving course in cooperation with Oryx Safe Driving Centre.

Course programme was tailor-made individually for our company taking into account fleet structure and drivers’ profiles. The course itself took place in real road conditions in a vehicle equipped with devices measuring all necessary driving parameters. The instructor was present in the vehicle at all times with the participant.

There are four key results brought by ECO-driving Course by the method of ORYX Safe Driving Center through:
