QSI Corporation, designer and manufacturer of rugged human machine interface (HMI) and mobile data terminals, partners with ISE Fleet Services, a new company by mobile software leader Innovative Software Engineering, to offer the mDash 4 on-board computer. The mDash 4 is a combination of technologies from ISE Fleet Services and QSI Corporation and is part of ISE Fleet Services' eFleetSuite product family. eFleetSuite is a set of end-to-end applications designed to reduce risk, prevent accidents, boost productivity and manage FMCSA compliance.

ISE Fleet Services' eFleetSuite is a customizable, modular and scalable solution that is easy to deploy and simple to use for the automation of safety and compliance. The mDash 4 in-cab electronic on-board recorder (EOBR) contains the mobile component of eFleetSuite. This component acts like the "safety manager" that is present with drivers in real time to help them stay within safety and compliance parameters (HOS, current documentation, potential speeding violations, etc). Roadside inspections are aided by providing information for a clean inspection that leads to a good driving record and an improved fleet CSA 2010 score.

The mDash 4 communicates wirelessly using a robust communications system over a nationwide cellular network. Safety compliance officers, fleet managers, dispatchers and maintenance personnel will use eFleetSuite's web application for real-time, paperless compliance and resource management. eFleetSuite is available for fleets in December, 2010 through ISE Fleet Services at http://www.isefleetservices.com

About the strategic alliance with QSI Corporation, ISE CEO Hass Machlab says, "QSI produces a very high quality product that has been deployed on thousands of vehicles for years. The mDash 4 leverages both companies expertise to provide our customers with the ideal combination of a self-contained display that is J1455 compliant, 395.16 ready and contains a GPRS modem, GPS, J1708 and J1939 all in one affordable and easy to install package. Working with the QSI management team has been a great experience. They have a clear understanding of what it takes to build a robust in-cab display".

QSI's Bill Woahn, Vice President Sales & Marketing, says, "When approached by ISE about their end-to-end product solution, we quickly recognized the value and competence that ISE and ISE Fleet Services bring to a project like this one. We believe the combination of ISE's robust applications and our rugged terminals delivers outstanding value to fleets seeking an on-board product that is both a reliable EOBR and the very best application set in the marketplace."

The mDash 4 will be on display and operational at the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Technology Showcase event on October 14, 2010 and at the American Trucking Associations Management Conference and Exhibition in Phoenix, AZ beginning Sunday, October 17, 2010.
