MINNEAPOLIS and BURLINGAME, Calif., Feb. 3, 2014 —– Drivewyze and PeopleNet®, a leading provider of fleet mobility technology that optimizes performance and decision-making management, today announced that the Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass application is now available on PeopleNet onboard devices with a complimentary weigh station cost-analysis tool, nationwide Weigh Station Heads Up notifications, and a bypass service subscription option.
The announcement follows a successful beta test, which included devices installed on trucks from some of the most well recognized fleets in the United States.
“Drivewyze PreClear can help our customers achieve greater business efficiencies,” said PeopleNet Product Manager of Safety and Compliance Elise Chianelli. “Its powerful weigh station cost-analysis tool calculates the real costs of unplanned delays at weigh stations and helps determine ROI for bypass services.”
A subscription-based inspection site and weigh station bypass application, Drivewyze PreClear is available on PeopleNet TABLET® in-cab PC and BLU.2® platform. The service includes the Drivewyze PreClear Analytics Services, a complimentary tool designed to enable data-driven, ROI-based bypass decision-making. It also includes a Weigh Station Heads Up service for real-time notifications for more than 600 weigh stations and inspection sites nationwide. Drivewyze PreClear is the only cloud-based service to alert drivers two miles before approaching a site, affording fleets the opportunity to earn up to a 98 percent weigh station bypass rate, depending on their safety records.
“The integration of the PreClear inspection site bypass application into PeopleNet is indeed a milestone for Drivewyze,” said Brian Heath, president and CEO of Drivewyze. “PeopleNet is the first to bring to market with us the first and only weigh station bypass service delivered as a cloud-based application using smart mobility technology instead of traditional transponders. And since fleets want all in-cab technology in one place, Drivewyze’s ability to integrate with electronic logging device manufacturers and telematics solution providers such as PeopleNet makes it a very appealing solution.”
This is a rewarding relationship with PeopleNet as well as with some of the U.S. leading commercial fleets, whose continued support and enthusiasm for new technology contributes to this success,” he added.
