PORTLAND, Ore. — Data mining software provider Vigillo, best known for its CSA scorecards, has developed a new inspection management system (IMS) it says tracks and manages all aspects of roadside inspections.
Schneider National has become the first carrier to use the new tool.
“The Vigillo Inspection Management System (IMS) is an expansion of already important services that Vigillo provides to Schneider National,” said Don Osterberg, senior vice-president of safety, security and driver training at Schneider National. “It will enable efficiencies in our current roadside inspection process and provide more granular visibility to violations and data discrepancies that occur at roadside inspections, enabling us to correct issues in a more timely and effective manner. The robust analytics provided by IMS will allow us to focus on effecting driver behavioural change where needed and actively manage our CSA scores. In short, we are excited to use Vigillo’s IMS solution.”
The new system allows carriers to enter or upload their master lists of drivers and vehicles and to enter or upload inspections and violations as drivers report them from the field. The master lists are then compared to inspection reports captured by the FMCSA. The IMS program identifies mismatches coming from FMCSA and can then be used to correct erroneous data. Benefits include: enhanced monitoring and tracking of inspections through all departments; timely response to inspection-related issues; ensuring all inspections are certified and returned to the states in a timely manner; status tracking of inspections and violations; reporting and analytics on missing inspections, inspections by state and inspections by status, providing a 360-degree view of all inspection/violation activity.
“As of today, motor carriers now have a state-of-the-art system that redefines inspection management,” said Steven G. Bryan, CEO of Vigillo. “Every year, motor carriers operating in the US are subjected to hundreds of thousands of roadside inspections that contain millions of violations attributed to almost five million drivers. High turnover, poor data quality, and CSA just add to the management challenge. The Vigillo IMS is the solution.”
