Lane assist helps put you in the proper lane well ahead of the exit or fork in the road. Traffic routing will reroute you around crashes and road work. Get where you need to get safely and quickly.

Digital DVIR

Vehicle items to check on like air compressors and fluid levels

Digital Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports flow back into our web portal where the mechanic can easily see that there is a problem with one of the vehicles in the fleet. Alerts can be generated to email or text messaged to a cell phone letting the Mechanic or fleet manager know that there is an issue. Once the issue is corrected the driver is notified and can confirm that the issue is resolved.
