DALLAS, Texas — Compli, a provider of human resources and compliance management software, has broken into the Canadian market by inking a deal with Saskatchewan uranium hauler Timeline Logistics International.
As it expands into the US, Timeline was looking for a way to integrate its Canadian training content into a broader HR management platform. Compli has worked with Canadian online training provider CarriersEdge to provide one system that manages all the carrier’s training and HR management needs, company officials told Trucknews.com during a recent interview.
Compli was founded about 10 years ago by three attorneys who specialized in writing employment handbooks for businesses. The company then developed a software program that would develop and distribute employee policies and forms, from the initial hire right through an employee’s entire career with a company. The platform was a hit in a variety of industry, particularly car dealerships. Nick Goodell, general manager, trucking and transportation for Compli, said “We found the software works really well in highly-regulated industries, especially where there’s high turnover.”
Building on the success it achieved in the car dealer industry – where Compli now counts 1,800 dealers as clients – the company turned its attention to trucking.
“About a year ago, we started looking for the next industry with similar characteristics,” Goodell said. “We looked at health care, nursing homes and they were just too disorganized. And then we looked at trucking.”
The company worked with a refrigerated transport provider to develop trucking-specific programs, covering everything from driver qualification files, to ongoing training requirements to drug and alcohol screening and driver background checks. Most recently, Compli has earned an American Trucking Associations (ATA) endorsement for integrating the FMCSA’s CSA data into its platform, pulling data from the FMCSA portal and integrating it into the driver’s Compli file.
“The company owner can see what’s happening with trends, assign consistent discipline across the workplace, that sort of thing,” Goodell said. Compli’s software essentially allows fleet managers to take disjointed workflow processes and streamline them through an easy to understand online platform.
Also new is a turnover analytics capability that helps fleet managers understand why drivers are leaving the company. Turnover Analytics provides reports and graphs to help managers easily identify trends in turnover rates and the causes behind them, allowing fleets to take proactive measures to reduce costs, explained Lon Leneve, president and CEO of Compli.
“Effectively managing the entire employee lifecycle is critical, from hire to new-hire orientation to the entire employment experience, and understanding why companies lose employees they would like to keep is an important part of that process too,” Leneve said. “With these new analytic capabilities, managers will have real-time information to detect turnover trends, including what’s happening by location and supervisor, which will have a dramatic impact on a company’s ability to go after the root cause of the problem.”
Compli now has about a dozen truck fleets using its system, including the recent Canadian addition Timeline Logistics International. The platform is available with no start-up fee and a monthly charge per employee. Goodell says the company is confident its system delivers a $4 to $1 return on investment.
