The GPS Insight Hours of Service Solution aims to help streamline fleet management and ensure FMCSA compliance. The new solution offers a simple alternative to paper logs and provides many benefits beyond compliance. Bundling an Android tablet hardwired to a GPS tracking device, the solution features an intuitive user interface to ensure ease of use for all drivers. The management portal is web-based, secure, and accessible via PC, tablet, and smartphone.
The solution provides for ease of messaging between drivers and dispatch through the tablet and web-based interface. This feature will reduce the number of phone calls made and help streamline overall communication. Fleet managers and dispatchers will be able to see available time for each driver for logistics needs and keep up-to-date on preventive maintenance, ensuring driver vehicle inspection reports (DVIRs) are completed.
Navigation is also built into the ELD tablet. Audible and visual directions can be sent to drivers for each job, utilizing truck-specific routes. In addition, the ELD solution combines electronic logs (eLogs) with GPS monitoring, alerting, and reporting capabilities. Fleet managers can monitor driver behavior, improving driver and public safety.
Although the system is easy to use, GPS Insight understands this new mandate is a paradigm shift for the industry and offers customers hands-on training, augmented by on-demand training videos, to make a seamless transition from paper to eLogs.
