Hub International, the nation’s largest provider of transportation insurance solutions, has partnered with EBE Technologies to resell EBE’s CSA 2010 DashBoard solution. EBE, the leading provider of document and content management, workflow and business automation solutions for the transportation industry, launched the CSA 2010 DashBoard earlier this year in response to the heightened interest in tools to help carriers prepare for FMCSA’s new Safety Management System. As a reseller, Hub will incorporate EBE’s CSA 2010 DashBoard under the Hub brand providing the solution to their more than 7,000 transportation clients throughout North America. Additionally, Hub will offer incentive consortium pricing to its clients.
In partnering with EBE, Hub International can quickly bring to market a solution that provides their clients with improved driver safety management. By implementing EBE’s CSA 2010 DashBoard application, Hub’s clientele will have near real-time visibility to carrier and driver safety scores based on the new CSA2010 methodology as publicly documented by FMCSA. Providing this type of visibility offers more control to carriers to manage their safety ratings, and that will be reflected in their insurance premiums. With the addition of EBE’s CSA 2010 Solution, Hub International positions itself as an industry leader providing their clients with the best safety management tool available.
President of Hub Transportation Insurance Services, Mike Birge, is pleased to partner with EBE in promoting this valuable service, “As a company that specializes in providing products and services to the trucking industry, we at Hub TIS are dedicated to promoting safety services that will mitigate the cost of insurance to our clients. This software solution offers a solid benefit that will simplify compliance and administration of Government mandated safety regulations at a truly reasonable cost.”
Teaming with Hub International provides EBE an opportunity to broaden its reach to help more carriers with the daunting task of understanding and managing the new presentation of data by which their safety scores are calculated. The tool presents both driver and carrier scores and percentiles by each BASIC category on a daily basis. The information can then be utilized to correct identified at risk behavior before those drivers adversely affect a carrier’s overall safety score.
“Implementing this solution today, gives carriers a leg up on identifying the most at risk drivers so they can take action on them before the system goes live in the summer”, said Cindy Nelson, EBE’s VP of Marketing and Business Development, “While partnering with Hub certainly broadens our sales and marketing efforts, more importantly, it demonstrates our commitment to offering innovative business solutions to carriers, regardless of fleet size, segment or industry type, which address the industry’s most pressing business challenges.”
This partnership further promotes EBE’s strategic initiative to expand its reseller channel under the “Powered by EBE” umbrella. This approach provides strategic partners access to EBE’s industry leading transportation applications, workflows and integration functionality to be embedded into their solutions and branding. “We’ve found that by combining our solutions with other best-in-class products and services, we can provide the greatest value to the industry”, adds Nelson.
