PeopleNet has announced a new integration between its eDriver Logs and IDSC MatchAdvice from TMW Systems, said to improve power-to-load matching with driver hours of service (HOS) information. Now, says TMW, its real-time power/load-match optimization program also helps ensure HOS compliance by recommending drivers who have the available hours (through PeopleNet eDriver Logs) to do the hauling.
PeopleNet says it has also strengthened its integration with TMT Fleet Maintenance–SQL, which now expands mechanic and driver capabilities with incorporated diagnostic information from PeopleNet Fault Codes. Mechanics can create repair orders within TMT using that fault-code data, listing the default component, complaint, and reason for the needed repair. Diagnostic information from the fault code is also listed in priority mechanical order in the repair comments section.
Also through the PeopleNet mobile communications integration within TMT, drivers can now inspect a tractor and multiple trailers in a single eDVIR form that TMT can process, which reduces data-entry time. Another time-saver lets drivers correct a mis-entered trailer number without having to fill out a new form.
