Southeastern Freight Lines has selected Innovative Software Engineering as its provider of electronic driver logs. ISE says Electronic Driver Logs is a full-featured Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration 395.15-compliant application that will automate hours-of-service recordkeeping and improve efficiency in Southeastern fleet operations.
“We chose ISE Electronic Driver Logs for its ease of use, FMCSA compliance and off-the-shelf features, which allowed for quick implementation using our existing hardware,” says Braxton Vick, senior vice president of Lexington, S.C.-based Southeastern Freight Lines. “ISE’s responsiveness and transportation technology experience makes them an invaluable partner in rolling out an electronic driver logs application across our entire fleet nationwide. ISE took the time to understand our existing applications and workflow to customize their product to fit seamlessly with our operations and our mobile communications hardware.”
ISE Electronic Driver Logs consists of a mobile driver interface, a Web interface and an adaptable communications channel. ISE says the mobile interface automatically records driving status, calculates available driving time and notifies the driver of his compliance status; data is stored in the mobile touchscreen display for up to eight days for roadside inspection, and team drivers are fully supported. The Web interface is designed to provide the capability to view, edit and print driver logs; other reporting features include driver time, mileage summaries, real-time driver availability, violations and log edit auditing. ISE says the communications channel supports cellular, Wi-Fi and satellite networks.
Adopting ISE Electronic Driver logs reduces costs by eliminating the manual processing of paper logs, allowing dispatchers to efficiently schedule resources and help maintain driver compliance, according to the company; eliminating paper logs in the cab and providing real-time driver feedback promotes higher driver satisfaction, improved productivity and increased driver retention.
“ISE’s off-the-shelf Electronic Driver Logs application is a perfect fit for telematics service providers and fleets such as Southeastern looking to increase their productivity,” says Hass Machlab, ISE president. “It has been our pleasure to work with Southeastern to custom-integrate our application into their existing system, providing a competitive advantage for them and their customers.”
