If you’ve ever been overwhelmed by too much information, you may know this analogy all too well – it was like drinking from a fire hose.
With the vast amounts of data coming from commercial motor vehicles and being exchanged among a variety of different parties, it’s no wonder data analysis for truck fleets and operators can seem inundating.
That’s where our newest client, BOLT System, simplifies things, making data more manageable and actionable. Not overwhelming. Former Silicon Valley tech company executives developed this Internet-based fleet management / trucking dispatch software to capture and store data from a variety of sources and display it in one place. BOLT gathers GPS data from on-board computers, uploaded images such as proof-of-delivery documents and photographs of damage, and data from any other integrated system. Sort of like the dashboard on a truck.
The BOLT System then displays this information in ways that allow for-hire carriers, private and blended fleets to act on it or to provide customers with details when and where they need them. Drivers can check in for load opportunities. Shippers can determine status and location of their cargo through a secure web portal accessible anytime. Private carriers and dedicated fleets can cut the incidence of empty miles and offer more useful information to their customer service representatives.
BOLT accomplishes this with an affordable and comprehensive system that’s scalable and gathers data from a wide variety of interconnected Internet of Things. BOLT System can help fleets perform evaluations of driver performance, dispatching, maintenance scheduling and fuel tax computations, among others.
