Drivewyze, a leader in connected truck services and operator of the largest public-private weigh station bypass network in North America, announced it has partnered with Verizon Connect, a leader in fleet management technology, to provide Verizon Connect Reveal customers with integrated access to Drivewyze weigh station bypass and Drivewyze Safety+ services.
With this integration, Verizon Connect customers can access Drivewyze through the Verizon Connect marketplace, allowing vehicle and driver data to automatically sync to Drivewyze applications. This simplifies the onboarding process and delivers real-time bypass opportunities to Verizon Connect customers while improving the driver experience. “Verizon Connect is well-established in our industry and we’re thrilled to partner with them to provide our mutual customers integrated access to our offerings,” Gavin Henry, Drivewyze vice president of business development & channel management.
“Drivewyze provides seamless access to its services that help improve operating efficiencies and enable companies to focus on driver safety,” said Erin Cave, Verizon Connect director of product management. “Weigh station bypasses are an easy and effective way for fleets and owner/operators to reduce operating expenses, fuel costs, and improve driver productivity.”
With Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service enabled, Verizon Connect customers can receive bypass opportunities at more than 800 locations in 45 states and provinces. Since no transponders are required, activation of Drivewyze on the Verizon Connect platform can be done quickly, with bypass information displayed on smartphones or tablets.
Once activated, driver and vehicle data from Verizon Connect are automatically synced to Drivewyze and consolidated with additional data points, like safety scores and registration, and transmitted to the weigh station. This information is then calculated against the bypass criteria established by the state or province. If the carrier and vehicle pass the criteria, at one mile out, the driver receives permission to bypass the site on their mobile device. The better the fleet’s safety score, the more bypasses typically granted.
Subscribers to Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass can also activate Drivewyze Safety Notifications, a free service that provides safety notifications for high rollover areas, mountain corridors, and low bridges. In addition, fleets can subscribe to Drivewyze Safety+, an extension of Drivewyze Safety Notifications. The service provides fleets and drivers with additional safety notifications and back-office tools for fleets to create their own customized driver alerts, plus offers safety analytics to monitor driver behavior and driver coaching.
