ATA Endorses EBE Technologies CSA 2010 Dashboard
Arlington, Va. – The American Trucking Associations (ATA) announced today its endorsement of EBE Technologies CSA 2010 Dashboard as an effective driver management solution to help large and small trucking companies manage their responsibilities under the upcoming CSA 2010 regulations.
EBE’s CSA 2010 Dashboard monitors and retrieves carrier and driver related inspection information from FMCSA’s Compass portal daily providing carriers near real-time visibility into driver behavior so trucking companies can increase compliance, drive down accident costs and keep drivers and the public safer. The web-based driver management tool delivers flexibility in identifying and acting on at-risk driving behavior. The system delivers both carrier and driver percentiles and measures as well as provides the ability to target specific areas. The information can be displayed by summary or detail views, and searches can be performed by several criteria including inspection category, driver ID, division, fleet manager, points, and percentiles. Company trend analysis is available by category, measure, percentile, or points, and by time period. Email alerts can be sent to appropriate personnel based on identified behavior, events or new activity. DataQ submissions can be automated and tracked through the dashboard as well.
“In November, CSA 2010 replaces SafeStat as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s tool to prioritize carriers for compliance reviews,” ATA Senior Vice President Dave Osiecki said. “ATA is endorsing EBE’s CSA 2010 Dashboard because it helps carriers take a critical look at their and their drivers’ records to determine how to focus their resources to ensure safety compliance and avoid an FMCSA intervention.”
“EBE’s CSA 2010 Dashboard does more than post percentiles and statistics. It is for carriers who are seeking a tool to pro-actively manage their drivers. Carriers using this solution have found it to be an effective way to sift through the overwhelming amounts of data, target in on isolated and patterned behavior and respond immediately,” stated Cindy Nelson, EBE’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.
“A carrier’s score is reflective of the collective results of its individual drivers. If you can identify and correct unsafe behavior before it becomes a pattern or causes a serious safety incident, then the carriers scores and rankings should be reflective of that. ATA’s endorsement of this solution helps us provide a broader outreach to the industry in an effort to support the industry’s commitment to improved safety.”
