Southeastern Freight Lines Selects Innovative Software Engineering’s Electronic Driver Logs Software Application for Fleet Wide Deployment
LEXINGTON, S.C. (September 22, 2009) – Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, has selected Innovative Software Engineering (ISE) as its provider of electronic driver logs. ISE Electronic Driver Logs is a full featured FMCSA 395.15 compliant application that will automate DOT Hours of Service record keeping and improve efficiency in Southeastern fleet operations.
"We chose ISE Electronic Driver Logs for its ease of use, FMCSA compliance and off-the-shelf features which allowed for quick implementation using our existing hardware," said Braxton Vick, Senior Vice President, Southeastern Freight Lines. "ISE’s responsiveness and transportation technology experience makes them an invaluable partner in rolling out an electronic driver logs application across our entire fleet nationwide. ISE took the time to understand our existing applications and workflow to customize their product to fit seamlessly with our operations and our mobile communications hardware."
ISE Electronic Driver Logs consists of a mobile driver interface, a web interface and an adaptable communications channel. The mobile interface automatically records driving status, calculates available driving time and notifies the driver of his compliance status. Data is stored in the mobile touch-screen display for up to 8 days for roadside inspection and team drivers are fully supported. The web interface provides the capability to view, edit and print driver logs. Other reporting features include driver time, mileage summaries, real-time driver availability, violations and log edit auditing. The communications channel supports cellular, Wi-Fi and satellite networks.
Adopting ISE Electronic Driver logs reduces costs by eliminating the manual processing of paper logs, allowing dispatchers to efficiently schedule resources and help maintain driver compliance. Eliminating paper logs in the cab and providing real time driver feedback promotes higher driver satisfaction, improved productivity and increased driver retention.
"ISE’s off the shelf Electronic Driver Logs application is a perfect fit for telematics service providers and fleets such as Southeastern looking to increase their productivity." said Hass Machlab, President, ISE. "It has been our pleasure to work with Southeastern to custom integrate our application into their existing system providing a competitive advantage for them and their customers."
