Drivewyze announced that the Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass application is now available on Rand McNally’s TND 760 mobile fleet management devices at the American Trucking Associations Management Conference and Exhibition. Drivewyze PreClear is a cloud-based service that alerts drivers two miles before approaching a site, affording fleets the opportunity to earn up to a 98% weigh station bypass rate, depending on their safety records. Each bypass saves an estimated $8.68 in driver time, vehicle operation and fuel, according to Drivewyze.
Additionally, the weigh station bypass application comes with a complimentary weigh station cost-analysis tool, nationwide Weigh Station Heads Up notifications that provide real-time information for 740 weigh stations and inspection sites, and a PreClear bypass service subscription option.
“Fleets can take full advantage of the time savings available with mobile-based weigh station bypass on Rand McNally’s fleet management and compliance system,” said Brian Heath, president and chief executive officer of Drivewyze.
Drivewyze’s announcement coincides with a recently completed beta test by Rand McNally’s TND 760 fleet customers in which fleets used the Drivewyze Analytics loss reporting tool to determine how much the PreClear service would save them when activated.
“The preliminary result relayed by the fleets show that using the Drivewyze PreClear can help them achieve substantial and quantifiable business efficiencies,” said Jim Rodi, vice president of the Mobile Communications Group at Rand McNally. “The potential is exciting, and supports our goal of delivering outstanding return on investment when using our devices. Using the free analytics tool, fleets can determine ROI for Drivewyze bypass service before they even turn it on.”
New customers with Rand McNally TND 760 devices will have Drivewyze capabilities already loaded, noted the company.
“The integration of the PreClear inspection site bypass application into the Rand McNally TND 760 is indeed a milestone for Drivewyze,” Heath said. “We’re pleased that Rand McNally customers are already seeing first-hand the potential savings they could enjoy by activating Drivewyze.”
