TruckLabs Expands Value Proposition with Launch of TripDynamics Truck Driver Engagement, Measurement and Retention Software | Business
REDWOOD CITY, Calif .– (BUSINESS WIRE) – Jul 21, 2021–
TruckLabs, a technology company helping transform the trucking industry, today announced TripDynamics, an innovative and fun software platform for driver engagement, real-time feedback and performance measurement in miles per gallon. . For a fleet, the benefits include fuel savings, profitability, and fleet sustainability gains. Drivers benefit from increased performance, satisfaction and ability to keep the job they enjoy.
Attracting and retaining drivers are two of the biggest problems in the trucking industry, especially in the context of the current driver shortage. Trucking companies must find an effective way to innovate against these problems. The gamification element of TripDynamics is proven to help maintain driver engagement by harnessing their competitive spirit, resulting in increased job satisfaction and performance.
Current approaches to measuring driver performance in miles per gallon are lacking in completeness and do not take into account variables such as weather, traffic, terrain, and other driving conditions. Current methods provide periodic feedback weekly or monthly after routes are completed. TripDynamics uses the power of telematics, machine learning and cloud computing to fill these gaps, creating a fair and competitive way to measure the energy efficiency associated with driver behaviors.
By categorizing driver performance by load type, equipment type, route segment and direction, drivers can not only see what their past best has been under the same conditions, but also what their peers have accomplished in the same conditions. these same conditions. Drivers’ performance is then categorized, segment by segment and race by race, to show how their performance is improving against both their own past performance and that of their peers.
TripDynamics also provides live, actionable in-cab feedback to drivers, such as driving tips, equipment usage, and terrain strategy, while they still have time to make adjustments to improve performance. in miles per gallon, rather than at the end of the week or month when it is too late to change the result.
“TripDynamics is revolutionizing driver engagement and motivation, and we’re excited to optimize data to level the playing field for drivers, while improving fuel efficiency and overall fleet sustainability,” said Daniel Burrows , CEO of TruckLabs.
