ThoughtDrivers, a Pittsburgh-based business performance improvement specialist for the trucking industry, announced that it successfully has integrated its SafetyBox safety and risk management software package with Pro-Tread, the online driver training program from Instructional Technologies Inc. (ITI) of Vancouver, Wash.
The companies say the strategic relationship will help clients seamlessly connect ThoughtDrivers’ real-time driving records, accident management, regulatory compliance, human resources and risk profile information to Pro-Tread’s remediation capabilities.
“The innovative integration of these software packages enables fleets to manage employee training requirements with maximum efficiency, alerting employees to specific training assignments, and assuring and documenting compliance,” says Sam Liberto, chief executive of ThoughtDrivers. “By integrating SafetyBox and Pro-Tread, we give our clients a single place to manage a broader range of compliance and performance dimensions for their employees. This enhancement will also benefit our warehouse clients who want to use Pro-Tread’s newest HazMat and OSHA online interactive training programs.”
Jim Voorhees, ITI’s president and CEO, says the technical and human resources innovators in the trucking industry have been promising this kind of integration for the past couple of years. “This latest development delivers on the promise to document and manage risk effectively, as well as to improve driver performance by providing fleets with a simple, intelligent and cost-effective one-stop solution,” Voorhees says. “Our collaboration with ThoughtDrivers is an early step in a long-term industrywide shift.”
