LAS VEGAS, March 4, 2013—Drivewyze, Inc., creators of the Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service, and PeopleNet Communications Corporation, a leading provider of commercial vehicle onboard computing and carrier fleet communication solutions, announced today that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and entered into a collaborative business relationship.
Under the terms of the MOU, Drivewyze and PeopleNet will explore ways in which they can join forces to deliver their complimentary products and services to PeopleNet’s customer base.
Drivewyze is an innovative new way for commercial vehicles to bypass fixed weigh stations and mobile inspection sites, using select Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), tablets and smartphones, giving them transponder-like capability and eliminating the need for dedicated transponders in each truck. Since it was launched in September of last year, the Drivewyze network has expanded to provide bypass services at 218 sites in 15 states.
“PeopleNet and Drivewyze provide valuable and complementary solutions and services, and we share the same value commitment to our motor carrier customers,” said Brian Heath, President of Drivewyze, Inc. “Together, both companies provide technologies that improve fleet operation efficiency and vehicle safety. As we continue to expand our network and grow our business, we are excited to be working with a leading ELD provider such as PeopleNet.”
“Drivewyze is a great complement to PeopleNet’s onboard computing and mobile communications systems,” said Rick Ochsendorf, Senior Vice President of Operations. “We believe that together, we can provide unique solutions of significant value to our customers.”
Hands-free and compliant with federal and state distracted driving regulations, the Drivewyze PreClear service provides simple visual and audible instructions for drivers to either bypass weigh stations and inspection sites, or to safely pull-in. Easy to use, Drivewyze assures privacy and data protection and connects to the Drivewyze network service via a single account regardless of where a driver travels.
