SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Dec 11, 2012) - inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global provider of telematics, fleet management and driver safety solutions, is working hand-in-hand with enterprise fleets to reduce costs, save time and ensure compliance with federal, state and internal policies. According to customer data, inthinc compliance solutions have saved 20 minutes per day for fleet managers and over $80 per vehicle monthly.
With inthinc waySmart® -- a comprehensive fleet management and driver safety solution -- fleet managers are able to monitor driver behavior and significantly reduce compliance violations. In areas where extended idling is prohibited, fleet managers can set timed alerts to drivers when they have been idling beyond a set threshold. Drivers are given a 15-second grace period to comply or a notification is sent wirelessly to fleet managers via the inthinc.com Management Portal. With idle alerts, inthinc customers on average have reduced idle time by 53 percent and carbon emissions by 30 percent.
"Idle time for each of our vehicles has dropped significantly," said Josh Moore, Project Manager at Cintas Corp. "There has been an obvious reduction in fuel consumption putting us well on our way to leaving a smaller carbon footprint on our environment."
inthinc compliance solutions also include an integrated electronic Hours-of-Service (HOS) log developed in accordance with federal safety regulations for commercial carriers. The electronic on-board recorder (EOBR) automatically tracks driver hours and simplifies fleet administration by improving accuracy and eliminating the hassle of paper logs.
With waySmart, fleet managers are able to reduce accidents and avoid penalties to improve Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) scores administered by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Data, made public by the FMCSA, shows that carriers with large fleets using inthinc technology average in the top 5 percent in driver safety, top 25 percent in vehicle maintenance and top 31 percent in driver fatigue.
