Risk Management & Safety

People, equipment and freight are constantly at risk in this industry. The IES Risk Management module provides fully integrated, proactive risk management capabilities aligned with the demands of your business. Innovative’s integrated Safety tools record all relevant information related to accidents and incidents, including: involved company equipment, drivers or contractors, cargo, witnesses, and claimant vehicles, property and injuries. The system provides timesaving checklists and recommendations triggered by specific types of events.

Users can pull information (including driver, unit, shipper, and load data) directly into cargo and Workers’ Compensation claims. This saves time and effort while minimizing the risk of data entry error. Robust dashboard capabilities – with drill down functionality – allows your managers to view all claims data from one screen while retaining the ability to perform work in a personal queue.
