Zonar and Drivewyze Partner Up
June 12, 2013
Zonar Systems and Edmonton’s Drivewyze Inc., creators of the Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service, are working together. They’ve announced that the GPS-based Drivewyze PreClear bypass service will be available on the Zonar 2020 telematics tablet starting in July. But not yet in Canada, we’re told, though it’s coming at some unspecified point.
Zonar becomes the first reseller of Drivewyze PreClear through this agreement.
Zonar customers will have the option of signing on for the monthly subscription-based Drivewyze bypass service — without needing to install any additional equipment or transponder.
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, the company says.
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, the company says. Commercial vehicle enforcement officers can identify and electronically screen vehicles even when they’re traveling at highway speeds because Drivewyze PreClear meets U.S. 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 its reach is said to be quickly growing.
Zonar’s 2020 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 myriad other applications. Drivewyze will be available for the 2020 tablet after the new U.S. hours-of-service regulations go into effect in July.
