EBE Technologies, a developer of enterprise business process management applications for the transportation industry, has partnered with TrueNorth Companies, a risk management solutions provider to the transportation industry, to create OverDrive.

OverDrive is a paperless workflow based insurance enrollment solution for motor carriers that use independent contractor owner-operators and is designed to synchronize data in real time between the motor carrier, independent contractor owner-operators, TrueNorth, and the issuing insurance companies.

OverDrive can be used as a standalone solution or as a module within EBE’s recruiting and on-boarding solution. When integrated with EBE, the entire driver experience from initial contact, recruiting, creating the driver packet and insurance enrollment are all paperless, according to both companies. They say this ability decreases the time needed from contracting to dispatching of the independent contractor, which increases driver satisfaction and profitability.

“Over the past 25 plus years, our team has created a very unique practice within our transportation division of providing risk management solutions to ‘asset-light’ transportation providers,” said Trent Tillman, practice leader of TrueNorth’s asset-light risk solutions team. “We understand that IC insurance program administration, if done appropriately, with a system and process, can not only bring instant efficiency to a motor carrier, but also maximize that business’s risk management structure.”
