Isaac Instruments has launched Isaac Connect, a new smartphone app to simplify communications for truck drivers. The app is available for immediate download on Android and Apple devices.
Isaac Connect does not replace the core Isaac InControl telematics solution and rugged tablet. It is instead a companion application designed to improve drivers' quality of life by catering to their needs outside the cab, the company stated in a press release.
Drivers using Isaac Connect can step away from the truck at a rest stop or shipper's facility and continue real-time conversations with dispatch on their personal devices started on the Isaac in-cab tablet.
Likewise, off-duty drivers can use Isaac Connect to view important information on their personal devices whenever they want, such as their available hours and trip information for the upcoming week.
Isaac Connect features
- Hours-of-service (HOS) status and recap
- Upcoming load schedule
- Viewing trip documents
- Isaac Coach scorecards
- Performance reports, including Isaac Coach results
"For the 500 fleets and 50,000 drivers using our technology every day, mission-critical functions require a rugged tablet that resides inside the truck," said Jacques DeLarochelliere, Isaac's CEO and co-founder. "Isaac Connect complements our rugged solution to provide the advantages of a 'bring your own device' (BYOD) platform, but without the safety, security, and reliability challenges that BYOD-only solutions create."
