Samsara has launched new driver workflow tools that the company says make the Samsara Driver App more customizable for fleets, without proprietary hardware or code necessary.
The company says Workflow Builder makes it easy to define, customize and publish guided workflows that help drivers minimize guesswork and comply with fleet policies. Additionally, Samsara says App Designer lets managers control which features are available in the Driver App and configure the behavior of those features.
Samsara says Workflow Builder offers a drag-and-drop interface where a fleet can select which steps are required, rearrange the order and delete tasks that aren’t relevant for its operations. Once the fleet publishes a workflow, the Driver App automatically takes drivers through step-by-step flows, Samsara says.
The company says fleets can use Workflow Builder to define start-of-day workflows, whether they want their drivers to start their days by reviewing their Hours of Service, performing pre-trip inspections, checking inventory or completing a custom document.
With App Designer, Samsara says fleets can choose exactly which features drivers can access, and when. For example, if a fleet wants to use routes but isn’t feeling ready, with App Designer, the fleet can remove that feature from the Driver App and add it right back when they’re ready, Samsara says.
