Help Inc., the non-profit provider of the truck weigh station bypass service PrePass, introduced a new tolling data analytics solution, Inform Tolling. Inform Tolling provides data analytics so customers can see where truck tolls are being assessed and confirm they are getting the best toll rates possible. It also identifies fraudulent toll charges while giving fleets visibility and alerts to toll violations. A beta version of Inform Tolling is currently available through Help Inc.
Inform Tolling works with PrePass Plus, a single transponder system that combines weigh station bypassing and electronic toll payment services under one account with consolidated invoices for both. It allows customers to view their PrePass Plus toll transactions so they can analyze, manage and receive user-defined alerts on tolling activity. The Inform Tolling dashboard and snapshot provides a consolidated view of tolling activity from multiple tolling agencies so customers can better manage their fleet’s PrePass Plus tolling activity.
To prevent misuse and theft of tolling devices, Inform Tolling allows customers to personalize a set of alerts that quickly identify potential fraudulent charges. These include alerts for trucks entering restricted tolling areas, high-volume toll charges, and tolls on unassigned devices. Customers using Inform Tolling also can view an annual statement that shows how much they are spending on tolls, as well as how much they are saving by using PrePass Plus as opposed to paying the cash toll rate. It breaks down fraudulent charges as well as the labor savings the PrePass Plus service provides them.
