Isaac Instruments is showcasing its new Isaac Connect smartphone app at TCA’s Truckload 2023, scheduled for March 4-7 in Orlando, FL. According to the company, the smartphone app enables drivers to remain connected with their fleet on personal devices when they are not in the truck cab or not on duty. With Isaac Connect, drivers can view hours-of-service (HOS) information, check with dispatchers for updated load schedules, access messages and view important documents or Isaac Coach reports.
All information is automatically synced between the in-cab tablet and smartphone app. That provides for a unified communications channel for all work-related activities, separate from personal text messages and voicemails. The app allows drivers greater control of their communications outside of working hours, such as when they want to begin preparing for their first shipment of a new week. Likewise, Isaac notes that the new smartphone app lets drivers connect with dispatch at their convenience when they are away from their vehicles at a truck stop or shipper’s facility.
According to the company, the Isaac Connect app will be available for Android devices on Google Play starting in March and Apple’s App Store later in the second quarter.
