Vigillo, creators of data mining software products designed to aggregate, organize and deliver complex fleet safety information in an easy-to-read scorecard format, announced the availability of its new CSA Benchmark Scorecards. The new Benchmark Scorecards, provided at no additional cost, allow fleets to compare the safety scores of their operations to other similar motor carriers.
“Our new CSA Benchmark Scorecards answer one of the questions asked most frequently by fleets,” said Steve Bryan, CEO of Vigillo. “They want to know how their safety scores compare to other carriers so we developed our new scorecards to provide them with the answer.”
Vigillo’s CSA Benchmark Scorecards will enable customers to access summary data from the Vigillo customer database of more than 1,800 fleets and 600,000 drivers and allow fleets to compare their operations to selected groupings of carriers without divulging customer specific information. Carriers can choose from over 45 specific measures for comparison, including measures across BASIC’s, points by driver, points by power unit, points per inspection, violation categories, geographic, and many more.
CSA, set to take effect this fall, is a new system of measuring fleet safety that will be the basis for regulating and enforcing safe driving and operating practices. The more comprehensive enforcement and compliance model with built-in and automatic intervention levels covers Unsafe Driving, Fatigued Driving (Hours-of-Service), Driver Fitness, Controlled Substances/Alcohol, Vehicle Maintenance, Cargo-Related and Crash Indicator categories.
The CSA Carrier & Driver Scorecard from Vigillo provides trucking companies with an advance look at their fleet safety data that will be included in the new FMCSA program. It uses the same carrier and driver data applied to FMCSA CSA methodologies to produce the same measures that will be used when CSA takes effect, and presents them accurately in an easy to understand Scorecard format.
