Client Success Stories
“We needed a way to keep our drivers up-to- date on recurrent training requirements under DOT and OSHA regulations. After evaluating a couple of options, we decided to try the Infinit-i Solution. Now, instead of having to pull drivers off the road for routine safety talks, they can receive updates on both timely topics like CSA BASICS, FMCSA, and PHMSA and relevant topics like OSHA either from their home-based computers or from laptops with internet connectivity. Not only have the training programs been well received by our drivers, they have also helped increase productivity and equipment utilization, allowing the drivers to spend more time on the road and less time in the classroom. Nothing will ever replace face-to-face classroom training, but now we can concentrate those efforts on the more complex subjects. Considering the ‘cost-per-class’, Infinit-i had the best value. They constantly develop new training programs, and I can even send videos and company specific presentations to Infinit-i, and they add them to my company’s specific training portal. Their customer service and technical support have been outstanding.”

“Aeropres Corporation has benefited tremendously from the Infinit-i on-line training. We needed a way to get the continuous training materials out to our drivers that also documented their training had been completed. With Infinit-i, the drivers have the advantage of completing the training on their cell phones, iPads, home computers or computers at the home terminal.
Infinit-i is a very efficient means of training drivers when you don’t have the luxury of having all the drivers together for safety meetings. Infinit-i was the perfect solution for us, and it has been a huge time saver for me, as well as the drivers. The support is absolutely great! I love the proactive approach taken by the service representatives. I would suggest Infinit-i to anyone looking for a more efficient, thorough training system.”
“We started with Infinit-i in 2008, and our fuel economy was at 6.1 MPG. In 2009 we improved to 6.5 MPG. We started 2010 at 6.9 MPG. This happened by training, counseling and continually working with our drivers. The efficiency of operation saves them and our company money. Everyone profits as a result of those efforts, and the job gets easier.”

“We have been using Infinit-i for just over a year now, and we are very happy with the topic selection, convenience and education provided. It’s great that our users can still access the information after the training is complete and that we can reassign topics to further reiterate important information. We plan to expand our use this year to utilize customized training and orientation. The program has been positively received by our users and by our insurers.”

“The Hazmat training you are providing is the best thing since sliced bread. I think this training is great for all of our employees, and I would recommend it to other companies.”

“Hoosier Air Transport uses Infinit-i for orientation, remedial driver safety training, and to train all employees to improve the company’s CSA safety rating. Your system seems to be working for us. It’s a great help.”

“Legacy Transportation Systems started working with Vertical Alliance Group after a tough DOT full audit. Utilizing Infinit-i training programs to focus on our Basics, we improved our Basics score in almost every category. Thanks to Vertical Alliance Group, Legacy is headed in the Right Direction.”
“Our company has benefited greatly using Infinit-i’s online training modules. It makes what used to be a challenging task very simple and quick. Their support is always real-time and very pleasant. We’ll continue to use their service for years to come.”
“Almost every lawsuit we get includes a claim for negligent hiring and negligent retention and/or training. Your product and the way it documents the training by testing at the end can go a long way in proving to a jury that the employer is working hard to put only qualified, trained people, out there. We have adopted, and our employees now expect there to be, required training 12 times per month. For over-the-road carriers like us who have a hard time getting drivers together in a group meeting, your product resolves those issues.
We used to spend $1,000 per driver on our orientation, including bus ticket, hotel, meals, and man hours for the instructor. The driver also had to sit in a classroom for two days going through training. If we hired a driver on Friday, he was not on the road for us until the following Wednesday. With Infinit-i, we have virtually eliminated our entire orientation costs because the driver can go through orientation online immediately, wherever he is in the country. That driver can also be on the road for us the very next day. Now, if we hire a driver on Friday, he can be on the road moving freight for us on Saturday. We gain four days of miles per driver.”

“The Infinit-i program has helped our company’s safety program tremendously. We are looking forward to another great year of improving driver awareness and safety on the roads.”
“Monterey Logistics is a satisfied Infinit-i client. We have 10 locations across the country. As Safety/DOT Compliance Manager, I used to travel to each location a minimum of 2 times per year to facilitate some of the monthly safety training meetings. Having each of our 143 drivers complete their safety modules independently each month online has saved us tremendously. We are impressed with the quality and content of the videos and the flexibility of the program. We have been able to partner with Infinit-i to create our own videos and training modules to fit our needs. We facilitate and administrate with ease from one central location. Any issues have been few and quickly remedied. Customer Service has always been enthusiastic, thorough and professional. I give Infinit-i two thumbs up!”

“We have a customer that requires special training. We posted the training on Infinit-I and were their only company that completed the training. We have a hard time getting all our employees together for training due to conflicting schedules. Infinit-i allows all of our employees to do their training at their pace. We really like that we can add our own curriculum and customize the training to our needs.”

“As a busy oilfield hot shot company, trying to complete training for drivers who are constantly on the road was a difficult task. The Infinit-i system has provided a convenient, user friendly way, to ensure our drivers get the training we require at their convenience. All they have to do is log on to our website from any computer, anywhere, and complete our customized driver training orientation. With excellent customer service and an easy to use system, Infinit-i makes driver training and record-keeping of training a simple, streamlined process.”

“Since we started using Infinit-i in June of 2011, our unsafe driving scores have dropped from 82.3% to 68.8% and our fatigued driving (HOS) scores have dropped from 66% to 44%. Infinit-i is a very user friendly product and has been beneficial to my company. My customer service representative is always knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to take my call.”

“Vertical Alliance has proven to be an excellent, service-oriented, partner for the Lockton clients we mutually share. Their Infinit-i solution provides my clients with the ability to quickly and easily adopt technology into their safety and accident prevention program resulting in measurable efficiency and improved bottom-line results. In just a few words, they are very customer focused and can be counted on to provide what they promise.”

At Southern Refrigerated Transport (SRT), Infinit-i increases revenue, improves operating ratio and delivers ROI. I have not spoken with anyone at SRT that doesn’t hold the company in the highest regard. We think that its services are an excellent value.”

“We chose to outsource to Vertical Alliance to help us manage some of our new entrant driver processing functions, like pre-employment hurdles related to commercial driver permits. We knew it would be cost effective. What we did not anticipate was the human resource value. The system actually helps us identify our future best employees. Shortly after launching the system, we discovered that the applicants who finish the online process are the initiative takers who have a level of self-discipline that translates into a superior driver. It weeds out those individuals who aren’t serious about their careers.”
“U..S. Xpress started using your online video training sessions in the beginning of January 2012. I wanted to write you to let you know that we all enjoy and appreciate your enthusiasm and passion. We have two and sometimes three new videos and tests to complete each week. The first week or two the feedback from my employees was, ‘Why do we have to do this?’, or ‘Are we going to learn anything from this?’. Since that time, the training sessions have become topics of discussion amongst everyone. The employees have really bought in and enjoy the training. I hear people repeating your jokes all the time, but it’s not just the jokes that they remember. Thank you for making the videos both educational and entertaining. We have all learned a lot and for sure and have taken notice to the importance of the dispatcher driver relationship. We look forward to all the remaining training videos, and I am certain the knowledge we gain will pay huge dividends in the culture and future of this company.”

“In the age of technology and social media, we cannot expect truck drivers to come in the office for a day or two of face-to-face training. Everything is online, and everything is instant nowadays. As the safety and compliance people of a trucking business, we have to keep up with day-to-day life and trends. Infinti-i is the pioneer and the leader for online truck driver training. Their short and right to the point videos and thorough follow-up tests are awesome for anyone out there who is looking to save time on driver training without sacrificing quality and ultimately, safety! For instance, we were able to cut our new driver orientation from two days into 2.5 hours with Infinit-i.”

“I was previously a driver for a company that used Infinit-i. I am now the manager of safety and compliance at WCD. I selected Infinit-i because I love the custom website and ease of access. The ability to watch the videos anywhere and anytime is very nice as well. Plus, the videos I felt were very well produced. Overall I would recommend Vertical Alliance Group to anyone.”
Safety & Compliance Manager
“Using Infinit-i has allowed me to provide quality safety training to all of our satellite locations and also to our main manufacturing plants. This system eliminated the practice of mailing training materials to these locations all over the United States. It also ensured that every employee throughout the organization, regardless of location, is receiving the same training and is easily documented within the system. The feedback that I have gotten from employees has been very positive. I am looking forward to a long term relationship with Vertical Alliance Group. The customer support is outstanding and worked with me daily to answer questions when I was implementing the system.”
