PORTLAND, Ore. — Web-based risk management solutions provider Vigillo has grown ten-fold over the past quarter, since introducing its CSA 2010 Carrier and Driver Scorecard.
The company says its scorecard is the only offering in the industry that shows carriers how they and their drivers will be rated under CSA 2010 criteria if the program were in place today.
Through the fall of 2009, Vigillo’s customer base surged from fleets representing 35,000 drivers to its current level of more than 300 fleets representing nearly 350,000 drivers. The company credits its growth to its CSA 2010 scorecard and increasing interest in the new FMCSA carrier and driver safety rating system set to take effect later this year.
“Since introducing the CSA 2010 Carrier & Driver Scorecard four months ago we’ve been growing very rapidly,” says Steven Bryan, CEO of Vigillo. “In October of last year we had about 35,000 fleet drivers on our system. At the end of 2009 we were providing services to well over 300 fleets of mostly 100 drivers or more, totaling 342,993 drivers. This growth is mostly from word of mouth referrals by fleets that use our Scorecard, see its value and pass along Vigillo’s name as the only provider of CSA 2010 scorecards.”
Bryan said the company anticipates it will triple the number of drivers in its system by the end of this year, surpassing the one million driver mark.
“That would represent one-third of the drivers impacted by CSA 2010, and cover almost half of the fleets with more than 100 drivers,” Bryan said.
The CSA 2010 Carrier and Driver Scorecard provides trucking companies with a preview of how their safety data will be used to determine their rating under the new FMCSA program.
“CSA 2010 represents a significant increase in government oversight of carriers and drivers,” Bryan said. “Our growth is a result of our ability to look forward and anticipate the needs of motor carriers and drivers. The CSA 2010 Carrier and Driver Scorecard provides a head start on the new safety scoring system, and Vigillo is the only company with this capability.”
