A new driver scorecard application has been added to SHIPS, the driver management solution offered by EBE Technologies. Carriers may implement the new solution either at the carrier site or as a software-as-a-solution remote hosted solution.
The web-based CSA 2010 scorecard and workflow application monitors FMCSA information on a daily basis; calculates the defined points for the seven BASIC categories, and populates the results into the carrier’s driver scorecard. Based on the results and the carrier’s own safety rules and processes, SHIPS will trigger alerts for “out of standard” behavior and execute corrective action such as assigning training, scheduling reviews or other tasks as needed.
“SHIPS CSA 2010 solution is more than a reporting tool,” said Cindy Nelson, vp of marketing & business development. “While giving visibility to the CSA 2010 safety score is important, the true value of this application is the automation of monitoring and assigning corrective actions to ensure compliance. Carriers who maintain a constant pulse on driver behavior and execute immediate consequences are best positioned to mitigate their risk through fewer safety incidents.”
Because the solution is Internet-based, carriers have 24/7 access to the information and can evaluate multiple performance scores for a single driver through one scorecard.
The company noted that SHIPS also integrates with carrier dispatch, mobile communications, log audit services and other transportation-related systems. This allows managing via and a single view to other driver-related data, including driver qualification files, hours of service, training, fuel consumption, accidents, incidents, on-time delivery, and customer satisfaction.
