MBI Energy Services Fleet Safer, More Efficient, and Providing Premier Customer Service With PeopleNet's Precision Mobility Platform

Immediate Access to Real-Time Data, Crude Oil Workflow Integration With TMW Dispatch, and eDriver Logs Make Operations More Competitive

ORLANDO, FL and MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 10/22/13 -- PeopleNet®, a Trimble Company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology that promotes on-time schedules, enhances service levels, and improves safety/compliance for energy services companies, today announced that MBI Energy Services is using its Precision Mobility Platform to strengthen customer service, driver efficiency, and safety for MBI's 1,000-plus fleet.

MBI Integrated Dispatch Project Manager Dave Guthmiller said, "Keeping up with explosive growth requires moving data quickly, reliably and efficiently. PeopleNet provides immediate access to critical data on several fronts, including load data that lets us meet customer demand for immediate billing. Vehicle tracking provides customers visibility into where and when their loads have been dropped and picked up. PeopleNet has made a huge difference in how we operate. We are simply more competitive with a safer, more efficient fleet and a higher level of customer service. Integration between Crude Oil Workflow and TMWSuite dispatch has automated driver-dispatch communication and skyrocketed driver efficiency. Drivers receive and send updated load information about pickups and deliveries in real time."

Making the announcement at the 2013 ATA (American Trucking Association) Management Conference & Exhibition being held in Orlando Oct. 19-22, PeopleNet Senior Vice President Rick Ochsendorf said, "Our Energy Services area is dedicated to helping fleets like MBI by combining PeopleNet fleet mobility solutions with proven technologies from other Trimble companies including GEOTrac, a leading technology supplier to Canada's energy services transportation sector, and ALK Technologies, a leader in transportation technology and navigation software. In fact, MBI is testing a version of CoPilot Truck's in-cab navigation application that integrates GEOTrac's unique content including private leased roads, to provide voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions directly to the well-site head to increase safety and efficiency."

MBI transports oil, sand, water and other oilfield products, and owns and maintains the majority of salt-water disposals and fresh water wells for oil well drilling and the production process. The company offers most of these services in North and South Dakota, Wyoming, Texas, Pennsylvania, Colorado and Montana.

Since beginning to use PeopleNet in April 2012, Guthmiller said that MBI drivers have come to appreciate how much easier PeopleNet makes their lives and how much it contributes to fleet safety. "They actually rely on eDriver Logs to save them the time they used to spend filling out paper logs. Plus, the 30-minute pre-break alert helps keep them compliant with hours-of-service regulations, which supports our safety regimen. In addition to our daily tailgate meetings before drivers get on the road, eDriver Logs screens remind drivers about safety throughout the day. We're looking forward to additional benefits from PeopleNet engine data and Fault Codes for preventive maintenance."
