Tom Heine, CEO of Aljex Software, has announced the launch of a new transportation technology company, Inspection Data Systems, or IDS. IDS will develop and market cloud-based transportation equipment inspection solutions for smartphones and tablets.

"We see a need in transportation for itemized inspections that can be completed using mobile devices that almost everyone has with results available on the Internet in real time," Heine said. "We've formed IDS to meet that need."

Heine said that Kyle Gholston, a transportation veteran with experience in trucking and high-end logistics, has been tapped to lead IDS. Most recently, Gholston headed Conexus, an international logistics company based in Tulsa, Okla.

Outlining the concept, Gholston said that with the free, downloadable IDS application, customers will be able to acquire an equipment-specific electronic inspection solution from the internet. Using that solution on a smartphone or tablet, they will be able to complete an inspection on a truck, a bus, a rail car, a piece of machinery, or virtually anything else. Completed inspection data will upload to IDS servers where they will be available immediately for customers, Gholston explained.
