Drivewyze, provider of the PreClear weigh station bypass service, has launched a data-driven safety monthly reporting service called Drivewyze Insights.

“Drivewyze Insights was developed in collaboration with our customers,” said Brian Heath, president and CEO of Drivewyze. “It’s what they’ve asked for, and it’s the first piece in what will become an ongoing value-add service to provide business intelligence on relevant safety and operational data that can help make fleets safer, and more successful.”

With Drivewyze’s PreClear service, customers receive weigh station bypasses based on a variety of factors, including safety scores. According to Heath, carrier data from FMCSA is compiled and presented in an easy-to-view format. Highlights provide answers to commonly asked questions like a fleet’s updated ISS score, the total number of inspections and violations during a reporting period, and inspection heat maps by geographical area including top inspection areas by county.

“We feel that county-level reporting is an important component to improved compliance,” said Heath. “It helps carriers better understand some of the core drivers behind their safety scores and to match compliance-related trends to regional fleet performance.  It provides our customers with better information on how to address the root cause of their violations.”

Drivewzye Insights provides additional information beyond the top location clusters of violations by informing managers of the top violation types encountered in these high violation areas.  If a carrier is running 500 trucks, for example, the fleet manager can tell if its violation rate is better or worse than their peer group across multiple categories, explained Heath.

“Ultimately,” said Heath, “we’re providing value-added information that helps our customers to take action and maintain a safer and more productive fleet. We go beyond data to provide actionable intelligence that informs driver training and maintenance practices and other activities like outreach and coordination with local law enforcement. The goal is to better enable our customers to improve their safety and regulatory compliance performance.”

The Insights report will be provided in addition to Drivewyze’s existing monthly Bypass service report.
