ISAAC releases several solution versions each year, all packed with new features. Here are some of the latest innovations in our fleet management solution.

Our team is proud to help you optimize operations and save time, and is constantly working on the evolution of ISAAC’s solution.

Recent ISAAC solution features

 

Improve route navigation with CoPilot Truck

Fleet Portal and Content Tools enable the editing of navigation maps and identification of routes to take and those to avoid. With Route Reporter, you will know if your trucks are using the proposed route or deviating from it. You may also synchronize these preferences with the PC*MILER software.

Together, these new tools will reduce discrepancies between the routes calculated in the dispatching software and your drivers’ real itinerary. As a result, your billing will closely match the real millage.

Also, determining which routes to avoid will improve operational efficiency by steering clear of temporarily closed routes and bridges, as well as dense traffic.

Add routing profiles & waypoints in CoPilot Truck 

Routing profiles and waypoint information may be added to trips and transferred to drivers’ tablets inside the truck. You can select different routing profiles for different stops inside a trip to optimize truck routes based on the type of load, for example. For a driver hauling hazardous materials, selecting a preconfigured “hazmat” routing profile will ensure the suggested route avoids tunnels for instance.

Waypoints (drive-by locations that don’t require stopping) can also be specified to ensure drivers follow a specific route in getting to a destination. Drivers will not see the waypoints on the route displayed, but adding them in CoPilot Truck will trace out a route that includes these specific locations.

To activate CoPilot TruckTM routing profiles & waypoints, your TMS integration mechanism must be updated to use the ISAAC API that supports this feature.

Retrieve videos on demand 

This interesting new feature improves upon ISAAC InView’s critical events made automatically visible in ISAAC InRealTime. Your safety managers can now retrieve any video footage of interest whether associated with a hard maneuver or not. The accelerated videos allow them to browse a 20-minute recording in 20 seconds, and then select a complete 20-second clip of their choice.

The new on-demand video extraction provides additional context surrounding any event, and can help investigate a public complaint or incident. If you receive a complaint concerning a driver’s driving behavior in a geographical area, you can quickly retrieve the footage to analyze the incident and take action if necessary.

Enjoy sharper images, easier scanning with Scan 2.0 

We improved Scan 2.0 to produce higher-quality black and white scans with sharper contrast. In addition, your drivers can now perform scans using manual cropping, instead of the default automatic cropping mode. Manual cropping is especially handy when scanning documents in dimly-lit or tight spaces such as a truck cab, which make auto-cropping detection tricky.

Scan 2.0 works on all ISAAC InControl tablet models.

Prevent expensive repairs with diagnostic trouble codes in real time

Every truck generates a large amount of diagnostic trouble codes (DTC). ISAAC’s solution helps carriers filter through all this noise by allowing them to retain only codes of interest.

ISAAC’s DTC tool empowers maintenance managers to make proactive repairs at the first signs of trouble by relaying the information to their maintenance systems through APIs.

View ADAS events among critical events

Leverage the trucks’ OE sensors with ISAAC’s advanced telemetry to gather more accurate data about driver behavior. The ISAAC InRealTime critical events portal now supports events generated by ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) such as forward collision warnings, emergency braking and dynamic stability control. These ADAS events, plus lane departures, are shown on the new ADAS Report in ISAAC OnRecord.

To activate this feature, you must make a request to ISAAC’s Technical Support team or to your Client Success Manager.

Improve productivity by managing assets visibility

The new assets access functionality allows carriers to manage the visibility of assets (drivers, trucks, trailers) for ISAAC solution users.

Enhance productivity by displaying only relevant assets, whether by terminal, division, business unit or any other useful grouping.

Leverage hours-of-service information

Enhance your internal processes by exporting your drivers’ hours-of-service information via ISAAC API’s. The information includes the drivers’ time spent in each duty status and the distance traveled.

This type of information can, for example, help facilitate driver payroll by connecting ISAAC’s data with timesheet reports.

Speaking of service hours, also know that ISAAC regularly updates its solution to meet the specific hours-of-service requirements based on region and operational exemptions: U.S. agricultural exemption, Canadian fertilizer exemption (Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba), and Texas Intrastate HOS.

Simplify wheel retorquing

Avoid wheel separation with simplified wheel retorquing management. In addition to the wheel retorquing feature for drivers on the ISAAC InControl tablet, mechanics and safety managers can manage wheel retorquing directly in the ISAAC InRealTime web portal or via their maintenance systems thanks to integration.

Get accurate freight dimension information

Get even more value out of ISAAC’s Pickup & Delivery module by having drivers enter the cubage of different-size pallets in a load.

Use this information to help with planning as you’ll be able to determine remaining floor space and improve billing accuracy and timeliness.
