SambaSafety, provider of mobility risk data solutions, announced an enhancement to its Qorta monitoring platform. By incorporating CSA (the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's Compliance, Safety, Accountability program) and motor vehicle reporting data into a single product, SambaSafety now provides the regulated trucking industry with a comprehensive driver monitoring solution.
With the Qorta monitoring platform, safety managers can proactively stay ahead of new roadside inspections and violations through near-real-time information summarized via carrier and driver scorecards. Also enabled is a preview of the new CSA IRT model, mandated by the FAST Act. Planned for release this year, the model uses Item Response Theory (IRT) methodology to measure a motor carrier’s safety culture with a single score.
Qorta’s comprehensive monitoring solution, Q Transportation, offers the ability to continuously monitor drivers for violations, license status, medical certifications and endorsements, on- or off-duty, or in company or personal vehicles. By aggregating CSA and MVR data, scorecards help provide data with actionable intelligence and help decision-makers improve their safety culture through improvements in cost savings, productivity, a company’s image, and overall safety and stability, according to the company.
“Since our initial launch of MVR monitoring solutions back in January, we are very excited to now include CSA monitoring into the Qorta platform,” said Steve Bryan, executive VP and GM, SambaSafety Transportation. “Qorta should be the platform of choice for any organization that is truly committed to enabling a culture of safety.” Bryan continues, “A reactive mindset cannot form the foundation to support a positive safety culture.”
