FUEL TAX OPTIMIZATION
View Fuel Tax Optimization Video
On Highway Federal Tax reporting and payment is something that all fleets are required by law to comply with. But, if you’re running a fleet in the 15 states of Washington, Idaho, California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, and Ohio, you can qualify for a refund if you can prove you’re operating on Non-federal highways – or expending fuel with your PTO or power take-off. With the 3rd Eye monitoring capabilities via our patented Hurricane Gateway, you have the ability to provide both location and fuel usage logs/bread crumb data trails that will hold up to any audit. In fact, we have several fleet customers that have been refunded millions of dollars as a result of 3rd Eye Digital tracking their fleet’s fuel usage. If you operate vehicles in one of these states, you really owe it to yourself and your bottom line to give 3rd Eye a call. Chances are… you’re leaving money on the table.
View Live Streaming Video
Live streaming is just that. 3rd Eye provides up to eight camera feeds that can be accessed remotely – that all show what’s happening around the vehicle in real-time. Cameras can be strategically placed around the vehicle to give viewers a three hundred and sixty-degree view of the vehicle’s surroundings. A common use for live streaming is the camera feeds provide a virtual ride along for any fleet, as the viewer gets to see what the driver sees, as well as what is being captured via the other cameras. This is particularly valuable for driver and operator training purposes, as well as to be used for driver coaching. This feature is particularly valuable for post-accident fault investigation. Having the ability to download accident footage quickly can be the difference between being cited or being exonerated.
3rd Eye makes integration with any number of third-party peripherals easy utilizing the 3rd Eye Gateway open-architecture platform. Peripherals include things like body scales, inventory control – and any number of back-office systems.

These events are reviewed by a dedicated review team and scored with any infractions associated. Once reviewed, users will be notified of these infractions and given the opportunity to coach the driver.

As an example, a JPEG image or Video can be triggered every time a garbage truck extends the arm of the vehicle to pick up a customer’s can.
