Help Inc. introduces InfoRM business intelligence tool

Help Inc., a non-profit organization for safer highways in the U.S., has unveiled InfoRM, a new business intelligence tool that helps carriers understand their safety data.

Help Inc. is the provider of the PrePass program, which uses data to determine a carrier’s ability to bypass a weigh station. Help uses PrePass data for InfoRM. Fleets that enroll in the PrePass program will now receive these simplified reports.

“Fleets now have a tool that allows them to create a plan for immediate safety improvements,” said Mark Doughty, vice president and chief operating officer of Help. “Carriers can clearly identify the issues that are adversely affecting their safety scores. These new data dashboards enable fleets to create awareness across their organization and facilitate changes in areas such as vehicle maintenance and driver behavior.”

InfoRM provides a carrier with a company snapshot that includes:

  • An interactive map of truck inspection and violation locations by state, city and highway;
  • Ability to search by VIN, site, violation and equipment to identify clusters and trends; and
  • Historical views of inspections and violations, with the ability to export data and integrate it into other fleet management tools.

“It is important for carriers to have visibility and an understanding of each of these areas to ensure safe and efficient operations,” said Steve Vaughn, Help’s national director of field operations. Vaughn is the former chief of the California Highway Patrol’s Enforcement Services Division. “For instance, if the topography of a certain area tends to make a truck go through brakes faster, then law enforcement assigned to that area may focus on brake checks. If a carrier sees that trend through InfoRM, they can perhaps change their brake maintenance practices or even modify a driver’s braking behavior.”
