TMC Pilots Industry Data Scorecard Service
ARLINGTON, Va., March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American
Trucking Associations' Technology & Maintenance Council is piloting a
new scorecard service for capturing and reporting on key industry data
and trends. The TMC Scorecard Service, which is supported by a
relationship with Decisiv, Inc., a leading provider of Service
Relationship Management platforms for fleet maintenance, will be
introduced during TMC's 2014 Annual Meeting and Transportation
Technology Exhibition, to be held March 10-13 in Nashville, Tenn.
"We have recently piloted a new TMC Scorecard Service that will allow
participants to see how their service and maintenance data compares to
similar companies based on type and size of fleet, industry/SIC code,
cargo type, and other parameters," said Carl Kirk, vice president of
maintenance, information technology & logistics at American Trucking
Associations. "This new service is one more way TMC is providing
additional value to its membership."
"The new TMC Scorecard Service goes beyond simple yardsticks, which
show only generic industry data based on surveys," said David H.
Tobey, Ph.D. of Decisiv, Inc. "The scorecards can be used measure
specific aspects of a fleet's operation against its own performance
and that of other companies or groups, as well as industry averages.
This type of service, which has been used successfully in other
industries, will deliver value beyond typical surveys for truck fleets
in many market segments."
Once launched, fleets signing up for the subscription-based TMC
Scorecard Service will be sent questionnaires every 4-8 weeks
throughout the year.
