Portland, Oregon– July 7, 2016—You may know Steve Bryan as the voice of CSA Reform in the trucking industry. While he wears that hat proudly, Vigillo’s CEO was recently invited to speak at platform innovator Tableau’s Brewalytics event in Portland’s Pearl District and don his technology expert hat.

According to their website, Tableau is business intelligence software that helps people see and understand their data.

Bryan started out with an overview of Vigillo and our role in the trucking industry. Since 2007 Vigillo has interpreted the data that flows from hundreds of sources within the commercial transportation and logistics industry and turned it into scorecards and interactive dashboards designed for professionals who tackle the complexity of the US supply chain. We take information and turn it into wisdom.

He followed up with why the average tech-savvy YUP should give the industry a second glance. Well aware of the audience, Bryan comically pointed out what the average downtown Portland-ite probably thinks of trucking:

Trucking, Mad Max style

He got a few laughs and moved on to showcase the way trucking is intimately tied to many facets of our everyday lives.

From the soda you buy at the store to the Amazon package delivered to your front porch, almost every item you purchase comes by truck.

While commercial motor vehicles may be hidden in plain sight, trucking is moving forward as an industry, creating many new jobs and opportunities for the tech field, and a truckload of data.

Every truck on the road creates a data trail. Vigillo finds and interprets the raw data to provide unparalleled CSA and safety insights.

Bryan closed by showcasing how Tableau’s platform empowers our CSA Data Analytics tools to give unparalleled insights to carriers on the road every day.
