Trimac chooses ISAAC Instruments to improve fleet performance

Oct 16, 2018


Chambly, October 16, 2018 – Following a rigorous evaluation process, Trimac Transportation Services Inc. (Trimac) has selected ISAAC Instruments’ state-of-the-art technology for its truck fleet. As one of the largest bulk carriers in North America, the company aims to improve operational efficiency, achieve fuel savings and provide its drivers with an integrated solution that streamlines operations.

When we launched the ISAAC Instruments pilot, we were optimistic about the product and wanted to ensure it would perform as advertised in our application and that our workforce would endorse it. We defined an explicit set of success criteria so that our pilot results could be assessed without bias. Our assessment showed that ISAAC has delivered a robust product that our workforce found intuitive to use and that we could easily realize much of the ISAAC value proposition. The ISAAC team was eager to work with us and very responsive to our requests.

Trimac conducted a pilot project with 125 trucks to evaluate the ISAAC solution from all angles. The company wanted to ensure that the chosen telemetry and telematics solution met all its requirements and success criteria. Among other things, Trimac validated the fuel savings potential, the intuitiveness of the solution’s user-interface for drivers and the ease of integrating ISAAC’s solution to existing systems and services. The results of the pilot project met and exceeded Trimac’s expectations. The company is now confidently launching an aggressive second phase of the project to equip the rest of its fleet with ISAAC technology.

In addition to offering a scalable solution that is perfectly suited to large companies such as Trimac, ISAAC has a strong team of dedicated specialists and project managers who ensure that the solution’s deployment goes smoothly and meets the client’s expectations. The support and assistance our team provides also helps promote and speed up driver adoption.
