The Weigh My Truck app allows drivers to weigh and then get the weights displayed on their mobile device without leaving the cab, the companies said. The app also will email a locked PDF copy of the scale ticket to email addresses specified by the driver, who can create an online account with Weigh My Truck, which will store payment information, trucking company name, truck number, trailer number, email preferences, and historical weight transactions.
Fleets also can set up accounts that allow driver management and provide back-end data files.
The Locator app helps drivers locate the nearest CAT Scale. The app allows drivers to locate the nearest CAT Scale locations on their mobile device, plan their route based on their current location, and save their favorite CAT Scale location.
“Platform Science’s new collaboration with CAT Scale empowers fleet operators to save drivers’ time and unlock new efficiencies as they weigh their trucks,” said Emilie Campbell, director of partner management at Platform Science. “With the addition of CAT Scale’s apps to Platform Science’s growing app catalog, fleets will have the flexibility to deploy a solution that makes the process of getting truck weights faster and easier in conjunction with other tools in the catalog, and customize the platform to meet their specific needs.”
“We understand that time is money,” said Heather DeBaillie, vice president of operations and marketing at CAT Scale. “The Weigh My Truck app and our CAT Scale Locator app are designed to help drivers use their time more efficiently.
“With CAT Scale now a part of the Platform Science app catalog, fleets have the opportunity to make sure all their drivers have access to the tools that help streamline the weighing process.”
