PrePass Safety Alliance, the non-profit provider of the PrePass® truck weigh station bypass service, has announced its first large-scale telematics integration. The PrePass MOTION™ bypass app is now available from within the Geotab Drive application.
This gives qualified motor carriers an additional option to expand bypass opportunities and help improve fleet safety and efficiency. The PrePass MOTION app uses a cellular connection to provide carriers with weigh station bypassing and in-vehicle driver safety ALERTS™. Drivers will receive alerts indicating work zones ahead, gusty wind areas, steep grades and no commercial vehicle roads, among others.
“The integration of PrePass MOTION for Geotab customers provides seamless access to bypass and safety alerts,” said Mark Doughty, president and CEO of PrePass Safety Alliance. “We are excited to offer this integration and help more carriers save time and fuel, while improving highway safety.”
Geotab Drive is the all-in-one, on-board driver compliance app that streamlines hours-of-service compliance, driver vehicle inspection reporting, driver identification and more. It works with the Geotab GO telematics tracking device to help customers meet compliance regulations and improve fleet productivity. Geotab’s open platform enables customers to customize their data to meet the needs of their operations. It allows users to select and introduce new features to their fleet, including the PrePass MOTION app.
As a bundled service, the PrePass MOTION bypass app includes the optional use of an RFID transponder to provide for electronic toll payment services and enhanced weigh station bypass coverage. PrePass is the only provider offering both bypass transponders and a bypass app.
Customers using PrePass MOTION with Geotab have the option to add electronic toll payment services with PrePass Plus, an RFID-based service available only through PrePass. All PrePass services include access to PrePass INFORM™ software. INFORM helps motor carriers analyze bypass and toll activity to spot trends, improve safety scores, reduce the risk of toll fraud and provide new data insights into their operations.
The benefit of legally bypassing weigh stations without stopping minimizes delays in freight movement while saving PrePass carriers time, fuel and money. Over 630,000 commercial vehicles from more than 77,000 fleets utilize PrePass services, based on their safety compliance and up-to-date credentials.
