Affiliated Computer Services on Wednesday, Oct. 5, observed the one-year anniversary of the company’s deployment of the ACS Sleep Pointe network, a sleep apnea reporting service designed to helps carrier better address the problem of sleep apnea. ACS partnered with Sleep Pointe to help carriers collect and evaluate sleep apnea treatment information from auto-titrating positive airway pressure (APAP) machines.
ACS says its system makes it easy for commercial drivers to submit sleep data at truckstop locations by using the ACS TripPak Truckstop Scanning network. “We have processed over 20,000 sleep data driver uploads through our network,” says Kelley Walkup, division vice president and general manager for ACS. “This complete sleep apnea reporting system allows fleets to capture driver sleep data effectively without disruption to the driver’s lifestyle. Solutions like this are at the core of our mission to continue creating a better bottom line for fleets while making life easier on the road for drivers.”
Thousands of driver sleep data uploads also occur through TripPak In-Cab straight from the driver’s laptop, and also at terminal locations of fleets who participate in the Sleep Pointe program. “In today’s climate of the transportation industry, with more attention than ever on carriers to make safety a priority, the therapy, screening and compliance management support we are providing fleets is invaluable,” says Duke Naipohn, chief executive officer of Sleep Pointe. “TripPak In-Cab and the TripPak Truckstop Scanning network are key pieces to that compliance management puzzle by providing drivers the convenience of uploading their sleep data from the cab of the truck and at quality truckstop locations.”
