360SmartView: New Offering From HELP Incorporated Empowers Enforcement Officials

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2011) - HELP Incorporated (HELP) announced the release of 360SmartView, a new cloud-based, truck-sorting system for roadside weigh stations and mobile enforcement. A core, in-station offering, 360SmartView provides state enforcement officials with a single and complete view of each truck's safety and compliance status, enabling them to make selection decisions based on a 360-view of each vehicle.

"Current, complete and correct data on safety, credentials, tax payment and drivers is one critical element of making the best truck selection decisions," said Richard A. Clasby, president and CEO of HELP. "Our system augments CVIEW with data from more than 90 state sources not currently reporting to CVIEW, to present roadside officers with a complete view of every vehicle passing through their inspection process."

360SmartView can be deployed at fixed, staffed inspection facilities; at remote, unstaffed locations and be accessed by officers assigned to mobile enforcement. In each instance, an automated query provides the enforcement officials with an integrated response for truck inspection selection. Data are logged in a warehouse from which enforcement-focused analytics deliver information that can be used for audit and compliance targeting.

Clasby added, "While our current system utilizes roadside cameras that read license plates and U.S. DOT numbers to identify the vehicles, state enforcement agencies need not worry about future technology changes. Our cloud-based system can accommodate alternative technologies that may some day be feasible, including transponders included in all new vehicles to smartphones."

360SmartView has been developed for HELP by ACS, a Xerox Company, and was selected as one of six projects nationally for Microsoft's Azure TAP program. The core system can be integrated with other roadside hardware including laser dimensioning, weigh-in-motion devices and thermal imaging. Software interfaces may include TraCS, Iteris' INSPECT and ASPEN.

State officials interested in viewing 360SmartView should contact rick@helpinc.us or Stephen.young@acs-inc.com
