New Data Reporting Tool Helps Truck Fleets Improve Inspection Selection System Scores

Share Article

InfoRM from HELP Inc. is a new business intelligence tool that provides truck fleets with granular details about truck inspections and safety scores. This helps improve vehicle maintenance, driver behavior, uptime and safety.

InfoRM enables fleets to facilitate improvements in areas including vehicle maintenance, driver behavior, uptime and safety.

HELP Inc., the provider of PrePass® just launched an advanced new business intelligence tool designed to enhance the way truck fleets look at and use their safety data.

The ability to bypass a weigh station is based in part on a fleet’s Inspection Selection System (ISS) score determined by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The score is derived from motor carrier safety performance data in areas of crash history, inspection history and driver history.

InfoRM™ (Information & Reports Manager) provides fleets granular details about its truck inspections and safety information to quickly identify areas in need of improvement and take action. InfoRM compiles ISS score factors from the most current, accurate data sets and generates a company snapshot.

Designed for use on PCs and tablets, InfoRM provides an unprecedented level of data about roadside inspections to determine where, when and why ISS safety scores might fluctuate. InfoRM’s data includes CVIEW/SAFER carrier records maintained by the FMCSA, but also information provided by more than 100 different government sources.

“Fleets need a simple way to measure their performance and improve weigh station bypass rates,” said Karen Rasmussen, President and Chief Executive Officer of HELP. “InfoRM’s data dashboards also enable fleets to create awareness across the organization, facilitating improvements in areas including vehicle maintenance, driver behavior, uptime and safety.”

While safety data has always been available to PrePass customers, this is the first time the data has been aggregated as an interactive application to give carriers the level of detail they need to make essential safety and operational decisions for their fleets.

InfoRM’s company snapshot features: An interactive map of truck inspection and violations filtered by state, city, and highway; filters to search by VIN number, site, violation type and other parameters to identify trends; and historical views of inspections and violations, with the ability to export data for reporting purposes.

As a non-profit 501(c)(3), HELP’s primary mission is to improve motor carrier safety throughout North America by partnering with public and private transportation organizations to also promote efficiencies in commercial trucking. HELP maintains the most robust and accurate fleet safety database in the industry.

PrePass, launched in 1993 by HELP, determines a carrier’s ability to bypass a weigh station based in part on a fleet’s ISS score. The recommendations range from ‘Inspect,’ for carriers with poor safety performance in one or more BASIC’s and for carriers with little or no safety data, to ‘Pass’ for carriers with good safety performance data.

The InfoRM data system is an added benefit to PrePass weigh station bypass customers at no additional cost. PrePass has logged over 730 million operational weigh station bypasses resulting in more than $5.4 billion in savings to motor carriers. Over 550,000 commercial trucks from more than 51,000 fleets utilize PrePass for bypassing and electronic toll payment.
