GPS Insight, a technology provider of GPS vehicle and asset tracking solutions for commercial and government fleets, announced the launch of its new Electronic Logging Device (ELD) solution.
The GPS Insight Hours of Service Solution comes to the market with a unique feature set that will streamline fleet management and ensure FMCSA compliance, according to the company.
The ELD solution bundles an Android tablet hardwired to a GPS tracking device. The ruggedized ELD tablet 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.
In addition to the functionality required by the FMCSA, GPS Insight is offering key ELD features that together, create a powerful fleet management solution:
- Messaging: Drivers and dispatch can now message each other between the tablet and the web-based interface. This capability will reduce the number of phone calls made and streamline communication with individual drivers or the entire fleet.
- Navigation: Navigation is built into the ELD tablet. Management can dispatch audible and visual directions for each job to drivers using designated truck-specific routes.
- GPS Tracking: The ELD solution combines E-Logs with the award-winning GPS monitoring, alerting, and reporting solution.
The GPS Insight Hours of Service Solution offers a simple alternative to paper logs and provides many benefits beyond compliance. Although it is an easy-to-use interface, GPS Insight understands this new mandate is a paradigm shift for the industry and is offering its customers hands-on training, augmented by on-demand training videos, to make the transition from paper logs to e-logs as seamless as possible.
