Permit Book offers a revolutionary new way to manage commercial truck, trailer and driver documents electronically.
Glostone Trucking Solutions approached Singlemind in search of a creative solution to a growing issue causing inefficiency in the trucking industry. Long haul drivers often are required to carry massive amounts of compliance documentation per trip to stay safe and legal on the road – and it slows them down.
Why couldn’t a fleet management team be in charge of aggregating a driver’s required documents and exposing them to the driver on a digital platform? Erasing the need for a physical permit book would solve several problems at once; it would save time, reduce labor waste, and untether drivers from the office.
Spurred by Glostone’s creativity paired with SingleMind’s technical expertise, the Permit Book app was created as a solution that would streamline the compliance documentation accumulation and handoff processes so that drivers could begin their trips without the need to stop by a compliance office.
With the Permit Book app, drivers now can simply log in to view required documents organized by company, truck, trailer, and driver. Drivers are immediately able to interact with any given file, view it and−or download it, even when outside of cell range. To ensure documents are never outdated, each user’s account automatically receives a push notification when one of their documents is updated or out of date.
Accompanying the Permit Book App, Permitbook.com functions as a backend document management system where Glostone staff can provision accounts, add, edit and manage user documents.
Their entire team’s industry knowledge blended seamlessly with our technical experience – allowing us to rapidly push to an MVP.
In just under seven months, the Permit Book iPhone and Android applications launched along with Permitbook.com.
The project has succeeded in streamlining the operations of Glostone Trucking Solutions and the entire long haul trucking industry.
