LAS VEGAS — Help Inc., provider of the PrePass weigh-station bypass program, introduced a business intelligence tool to help fleets analyze their safety data.

The new InfoRM system is designed to give fleets a better understanding of their inspection selection system scores, which enforcement agencies use as a key factor when determining which trucks to inspect.

Mark Doughty, Help Inc.’s vice president and chief operating officer, announced the new product here at American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition.

InforRM enables carriers to not only access safety data, but to identify trends to help them improve their ISS scores, he said. “We want to take information and make it actionable.”

The system provides an interactive map of truck inspections and violations by state, city and highway. Users can also search by vehicle identification number, site, violation and equipment.

Doughty said InfoRM is in limited release, with a full rollout planned for the first quarter of 2017. The product is free for carriers enrolled in the PrePass program, he said.
