8/19/10


Comprehensive Safety Analysis (CSA 2010) instituted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) will be effective nationwide in late 2010. CSA 2010 utilizes a new Safety Measurement System tool to evaluate the safety performance of driver and carrier with the intent purpose of creating safer roads for everyone.

There are 7 Behavioral Analysis Safety Improvement Categories (BASIC) used to measure the safety of a carrier.

  1. Unsafe Driving
  2. Fatigued Driving (Hours of Service)
  3. Driver Fitness
  4. Controlled Substance/Alcohol
  5. Vehicle Maintenance
  6. Cargo “ Related Handling
  7. Crash Indicator

Failure to meet any of these measurements will result in undesirable ratings that directly affect your fleet operations efficiency and costs.

Truck Tracker Software assists you in ensuring your fleet's maintenance is current, the vehicle reported problems do not go undetected, the training, licenses, physicals and certifications of your driver's are current, and the driver's hours along with vehicular incident records are recorded. These features in Truck Tracker will help ensure that you measure up to the FMCSA's new safety guidelines.

Truck Tracker enables you to keep more organized records for your driver's and fleet avoiding any fines or penalties. You are able to take a proactive approach in maintaining your fleet and monitoring your drivers. Truck Tracker helps you measure up to the CSA 2010 standards!

FleetSoft Launches Truck Tracker's Mobile Field Service Order Module

6/3/10


FleetSoft responds to their customer's requests by developing the Truck Tracker Mobile Field Service Order Module.


Truck Tracker's Mobile Field Service Order Module provides communication between driver and dispatcher using UDP protocol. This protocol utilizes a very small packet size which maintains a low cost data usage.


The dispatcher sends scheduled time, project ID, address, job description, and notes to a driver's laptop. The driver completes the service and sends miles, hours, and notes by vehicle and project ID to the Truck Tracker server. The information is used to calculate the vehicle cost per project ID using the given miles/hours entered by the driver.


Some key features included in the Mobile Field Service Order Module are¦.

· Uses very small packet size maintaining low cost data usage

· Performs well over satellite and/or cellular

· Passes service order data to the trucks and have them respond

· Queues up work as it comes into the vehicle's computer

· Validates receipt of communications

· Sends data to drivers if they are disconnected and reconnected

· Ability for drivers to update data if dispatchers are disconnected

· Stores mobile data in case it is disconnected for extended period of time

· Manages dynamic client IP address on the server

· Shows company logo on application

· Plays sound alert when new message arrives on mobile client

· Easy to use interface


This mobile application saves time and reduces paperwork. It also reduces the need for double data entry minimizing data entry errors. Reliable communication is established between the dispatcher and vehicles.


The Truck Tracker Mobile Field Service Order Module is just the beginning of a suite of mobile applications to be released by FleetSoft in the near future.
