Posted by EOX Vantage on Jun 23, 2021 2:00:00 PM

Increasing driver retention is one of the holy grails of fleet management right now. We hear a lot from our transportation clients about the importance of finding and keeping good truck drivers. One approach we’re pleased to see gaining traction is the simple philosophy of treating drivers fully as people in a demanding occupation, rather than as commodities or monetized assets.

Driving, as a job, requires a lot of time, effort and attention. The idea is to respect the drivers and their time, treat them well and make life easier for them.

Driving Toward Safer Roads with Data

Posted by EOX Vantage on May 5, 2021 11:00:00 AM

Published in CCJ Digital | May 4, 2021

Fact #1: Vast amounts of actionable data are available to trucking companies and more is compiled all the time and from all over the place. It comes especially through telematics, but also from ELDs, dashboard cams and TMS components, even outside sources like from the company's own insurers, motor vehicle records, VIN databases or federal safety collections.

Fact #2: Today's transportation industry is placing an ever-stronger emphasis on safety. Companies prioritize and make investments into ways to improve training, avert nuclear verdicts, mitigate risks and manage insurance premiums.

Signs That It's Time to Update Your Legacy Systems

Posted by EOX Vantage on May 4, 2021 1:45:00 PM

Interviewed by Adam Burroughs | Smart Business Magazine | INSIGHTS Digital Transformation

Legacy systems are relied upon to perform an organization's day-to-day work. But, in many cases, technology has improved drastically since companies first implemented those systems, leading to a point at which the tasks those systems perform could strain those systems beyond what they can handle. This opens the door to failure, user frustration and more.

"When your system no longer supports scalability, you lose the competitive advantage in the market," says Nishan Kumar, project manager at EOX Vantage.

Smart Business spoke with Kumar about how to recognize when it's time to address the problems caused by older legacy systems, and how upgrades can improve workflows.

Automation looks to solve problems that arise through manual reporting, an often tedious process that's prone to errors. It also enables organizations to supply the same information to multiple parties or segment it based on their relationship to the data.

"The big thing for organizations now is trying to get clean and consistent information," says Varun Badarinath, senior product engineer at EOX Vantage. "Manual processes tend to create errors that affect data integrity, a foundational component of decision-making. Automation works to get things standardized so data is timely and consistent."
