BURLINGAME, Calif., June 6, 2013—Drivewyze™ Inc., creators of the Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service, and Zonar, provider of the 2020 telematics tablet, announced the GPS-based Drivewyze PreClear bypass service will be available on the Zonar 2020 tablet starting in July.
Zonar becomes the first reseller of Drivewyze PreClear through this agreement. This will give Zonar customers the option of signing on for the monthly subscription-based Drivewyze bypass service without needing to install any additional equipment or transponder.
“This agreement makes it easy for fleets to provide drivers the ability to bypass weigh stations and inspection sites cost efficiently,” said Brian Heath, president of Drivewyze Inc. “The Zonar 2020 tablet provides fleet managers and drivers with a powerful tool to enhance efficiency and safety. The Drivewyze PreClear bypass service rewards hard earned fleet safety scores with the opportunity for drivers to bypass scales and inspection sites, saving considerable time and money.”
A carrier’s Inspection Selection System or ISS score determines whether it will be allowed by vehicle enforcement officers to bypass the weigh station or remote inspection site. As a general rule, good CSA scores mean a good ISS score.
“For owner-operators and fleets with strong ISS scores,Drivewyze provides them a clear competitive advantage,” Heath added. “Commercial vehicle enforcement officers can identify and electronically screen vehicles even when they’re traveling at highway speeds because Drivewyze PreClear meets federal requirements for electronic screening.”
The Drivewyze PreClear service is currently available in 15 states, providing bypass opportunities at 217 weigh stations and mobile inspection sites, and is quickly growing across the United States.
“Drivewyze and Zonar are both leaders at providing the commercial vehicle market with solutions that enhance fleet efficiency and enhance safety,” said Chris Oliver, Zonar’s chief marketing officer. “Zonar has always looked to provide fleets the tools they need to continuously improve their operations. By providing Drivewyze PreClear, we offer customers the option to take full advantage of all the benefits bypassing weigh stations and roadside inspection sites offers them.”
Zonar’s 2020 tablet provides fleet managers and drivers with a powerful tool to enhance their fleet efficiency and performance. The portable tablet provides electronic hours of service, Zonar’s patented verified electronic vehicle inspection, two-way messaging, advanced commercial vehicle navigation, visual driver feedback and performance results, a camera and video for documenting any damaged goods, document and signature capture and a myriad of applications. Drivewyze will be available for the 2020 tablet after the new federal hours of service regulations are scheduled to go into effect in July.
