AUSTIN, Texas — EBE Technologies has established a new company, InfoStream, to provide management services that complement its core transportation software business.
InfoStream will support fleet customers by managing many facets of regulatory compliance, including driver qualification files and drug and alcohol programs, and scheduling Department of Transportation physicals, maintaining vehicle files and scheduling preventive maintenance, as well as risk management consulting.
EBE made the announcement here Oct. 29 at American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition.
The technology company has appointed Steve Wilhelms as InfoStream’s executive vice president and chief operating officer.
InfoStream’s services will help fleet safety directors and risk managers better handle the flood of information they need to manage, Wilhelms said. “They’re just being overwhelmed with so much data.”
