IDSC TripAlert blends the technology power of your existing dispatch, routing, and mobile communications systems for real-time asset tracking anywhere in the contiguous United States, Canada & Mexico. IDSC TripAlert monitors the receipt of the power unit position update and the trailer position update from the mobile communications system. This, together with all work assignment knowledge, forms the basis for the sophisticated calculations which allow current vehicle locations to be monitored and to forecast future vehicle locations and driver status.
Automatic Notification of Out-of-Route & Customer Arrival/Departure Events and Swap Opportunities
IDSC TripAlert generates alerts based on vehicle position and activity. Vehicle position alerts include: on-time / late / projected late, on-route / out-of-route, geofence triggers, driver at home, arrive at customer, depart from customer, weather, traffic and more.
Vehicle activity alerts include: potential swap opportunities, high / low speed, hours of service violations, excessive idle, failure to report location, no movement, attach / drop trailer and more.
IDSC TripAlert identifies the locations and times when two power units will be feasible to swap load assignments. IDSC TripAlert recommends those swap opportunities which improve utilization, on time performance, and driver home time. IDSC TripAlert provides built-in capabilities to identify candidates for in-transit swaps-leveraging the data to maximize driver and equipment utilization, prevent service failures, and increase driver time at home.
IDSC TripAlert provides robust real-time and historical reports with drill-down detail. Historical out-of-route reports are available for a user specified date range. These reports display your system-wide out-of-route percentage as well as by driver manager and power unit. Managers are able to double-click on any power unit to retrieve detailed out-of-route information by trip.
Company statistics are displayed with key factor information such as: out-of-route miles, actual miles, plan miles, % out-of-route miles, out-of-route miles per trip, number of trips, and average length of haul.
Driver manager statistics are displayed with key factor information that includes: power ID, driver manager, out-of-route miles, actual miles, plan miles, % of out-of-route miles, out-of-route miles per trip, number of trips, and average length of haul.
Additional reporting capabilities include report wizards that easily generate reports for continuous improvement in the reduction of out-of-route miles and late deliveries.
