Both applications automatically request and receive the PSP data and calculate equivalent CSA 2010 Driver Safety Measurement System BASIC scores for purposes of qualifying drivers and measuring them against their current fleet. The new PSP modules will be available in late August.
With both solutions, the request for information will be automatically generated, while the returned information will then be scored and displayed in the applicable solution.
The new PSP program, launched in April 2010, allows carriers to electronically access driver inspection and crash records as a part of the hiring process. PSP is populated by FMCSA's Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS), which includes roadside inspection and compliance reviews, enforcement data, state-reported crashes, and motor carrier census data. The program is designed to offer carriers more insight to driver history for the purpose of making more informed hiring decisions.
From within SHIPS recruiting solution, the PSP integration module automatically executes a workflow task requesting applicant information. When the reports are returned, the data is interpreted by the CSA 2010 calculation software. Once the applicant's BASIC measures are determined, the driver is ranked and compared to existing drivers within the company's fleet. The crash and inspection data can also be saved as an electronic report and stored in the applicants driver file or exported to a carrier's transportation management system for further analysis.
As an add-on module to the CSA 2010 Dashboard, the carrier may request the PSP information from within the dashboard and view the reported data in the same way it is displayed for employed or terminated drivers. A driver scorecard will be generated displaying each of the BASIC measures and compare them to the fleet average.
"The integration of the PSP data with SHIPS driver recruiting and new CSA 2010 dashboard provides carriers with the ability to rate potential drivers the same way they rate current drivers," said Cindy Nelson, EBE's vice president of marketing and business development. "Screening out potential problems to avoid costly hiring mistakes is one of the most proactive initiatives carriers can perform to ensure a safer fleet and protect their CSA 2010 carrier ranking. The PSP integration module, not only increases the speed at which carriers have access to the information, but provides the visibility and insight necessary to hire qualified drivers more quickly."
