GREENVILLE, S.C. — Eleos, which provides a custom workflow app platform for trucking companies and their drivers, has expanded its platform by teaming with Drivewyze to offer an easy integration with PreClear weigh station bypass.
“We’re known for working with fleets to customize apps for their specific use. As part of that, we integrate with industry-leading providers to bring all the tools the driver needs into a single unified driver workflow app,” said Kevin Survance, founder and CEO of Eleos.
“That’s where Drivewyze PreClear comes in — enabling drivers to see bypass notifications from Drivewyze right inside their company’s app increases driver and fleet efficiency,” he continued. “PreClear weigh station bypass provides drivers with the opportunity to log more drive time, and in trucking, that’s the name of the game.”
Drivewyze PreClear is the largest weigh station bypass service in North American, with more than 800 locations in 47 states and provinces. With this partnership, Drivewyze joins the list of integrations available within the customizable Eleos workflow platform, which can help drivers and carriers with a variety of tasks, including trip planning and navigation, payroll, dispatch communications, document scanning and on-the-go training.
“Eleos has created a unique business model that allows fleets to give drivers company-specific apps using best-in-class pre-built components,” said Brian Heath, president and CEO of Drivewyze. “This allows fleets to economically tailor apps and information to improve their day-to-day operations. The growth in their customer base is a testament of their success. We’re excited to be aligned with Eleos.”
No transponders are required, so activation of Drivewyze on the Eleos platform can be done in minutes, with bypass information displayed on smartphones or tablets.
Once integrated, Drivewyze transmits safety scores, registration and IFTA tax compliance information to the weigh station, which then calculates the information against the bypass criteria established by its state. If the carrier and vehicle pass the criteria, at one mile out, the driver receives permission to bypass the site. The better the fleet’s safety score, the more bypasses typically granted.
