Platform Science adds CAT Scale apps to software catalog

Feb. 16, 2023
Drivers using Platform Science's software will have the option to find weigh stations and pre-weigh their trucks using CAT Scale's apps.

Telematics and fleet management software provider Platform Science is partnering with the CAT Scale to offer the weigh station network’s CAT Scale Locator and Weigh My Truck apps in Platform Science's catalog.

The Weigh My Truck app allows drivers to weigh and then display the weights on their mobile devices without leaving the cab. The app will also email a locked PDF copy of the scale ticket to email addresses specified by the driver. The driver simply creates an online account with Weigh My Truck, which will store payment information, trucking company name, truck number, trailer number, email preferences, and historical weight transactions. Fleets can also set up accounts that allow driver management and provide back-end data files, according to a press release.

The CAT Scale locator app helps drivers to locate the nearest CAT Scale. The app allows drivers to locate the nearest scale locations on their mobile devices, plan their routes based on their current location, and save their favorite scale locations.

"Platform Science's new collaboration with CAT Scale empowers fleet operators to save drivers' time and unlock new efficiencies as they weigh their trucks," said Emilie Campbell, director of partner management at Platform Science. "With the addition of CAT Scale's apps to Platform Science's growing app catalog, fleets will have the flexibility to deploy a solution that makes the process of getting truck weights faster and easier in conjunction with other tools in the catalog and customize the platform to meet their specific needs."

"We understand that time is money,” said Heather DeBaillie, VP of operations and marketing at CAT Scale. “The Weigh My Truck app and our CAT Scale Locator app are designed to help drivers use their time more efficiently. With CAT Scale now a part of the Platform Science app catalog, fleets have the opportunity to make sure all their drivers have access to the tools that help streamline the weighing process."
