EBE Technologies has created a new fast-track “configuration wizard” that will shorten the implementation cycle for its suite of driver lifecycle solutions.

Combined with EBE’s implementation methodology, the wizard will streamline, simplify and shorten the configuration and deployment time. The tools have been created to support all of SHIPS client/server and new web-based recruiting, safety and driver performance software.

Carriers will be guided through a collaborative process of completing discovery questionnaires that are used as the foundation to create the requirements definition, EBE said. The configuration wizard uses this blueprint to build the conference room pilot at a much more rapid pace. Client acceptance testing and training are then the final steps prior go-live.

Depending on the size of the carrier and the specific requirements defined, the wizard is expected to reduce the project lifecycle from 20-40%. 

“With the driver shortage impacting carriers’ ability to recruit and retain drivers, it is more imperative than ever that our clients are able to implement solutions as quickly as possible to help identify, process, on-board and retain drivers.  We are confident this approach will allow the carriers to implement an integrated and strategic solution in a timely manner,” said Linda Keag, EBE’s director of professional services.
