New WEBFLEET ELD Manager solution helps fleets meet hours of service (HOS) regulations
Tampa FLA, 24 April 2017
TomTom Telematics today announced WEBFLEET ELD Manager, a turnkey electronic logging solution to help fleets meet the new FMCSA ELD mandate surrounding hours of service (HoS). WEBFLEET ELD Manager will be showcased at the NAFA Institute & Expo, April 26-27, 2017, booth #1246.
The FMCSA’s electronic logging device (ELD) rule is intended to help create a safer work environment for drivers, and make it easier, faster to accurately track, manage, and share records of duty status (RODS) data. An ELD synchronizes with a vehicle engine to automatically record driving time, for easier, more accurate hours of service (HOS) recording.
WEBFLEET ELD Manager incorporates hardware and software components to help fleets comply with the FMCSA mandate. Key components include: TomTom PRO 8275M/8275M TRUCK, TomTom LINK 530, and a dedicated application for HOS and driver vehicle inspection reports (DVIR) recording, powered by eFleetSuite from ISE. eFleetSuite captures all required information for the driver’s log and automatically calculates driver’s time remaining based on various daily and weekly limits. Comprehensive back-office reporting allows fleet personnel to make proactive decisions to avoid HOS violations and focus on resource optimization.
Integral to the WEBFLEET ELD Manager solution, the TomTom PRO 8275M is a fully customizable, connected open platform driver terminal, with many readymade apps already available in the TomTom Telematics app center. It combines the latest navigation and fleet technology in a ruggedized 7-inch touchscreen driver terminal with lifetime maps and lifetime TomTom Traffic , truck specific routing (where required), rear camera support, and near field communications. Through TomTom LINK 530, the TomTom PRO 8275M also connects to WEBFLEET for online fleet management.
“ISE is honored to be chosen by TomTom Telematics for its ELD and DVIR deployments. eFleetSuite was developed using ISE’s deep transportation experience and provides TomTom Telematics a fully featured compliance application that will help fleet customers achieve productivity gains, safety improvements and reduced CSA scores,” says ISE Chris Nelson, Vice President, ISE Fleet Services.
“This is a compliance solution that fleets can rely on, delivered by a trusted global brand,” says Torsten Gruenzig, Director of North American Sales, TomTom Telematics. “WEBFLEET ELD Manager and the TomTom PRO 8 series driver terminals offer fleet businesses so much more value than just providing peace of mind around compliance. Our complete, turnkey solution can be customized to a fleet’s business processes and workflows, including integration possibilities through a proven telematics open platform. It also comes with one of the most comprehensive fleet management solutions on the market today, allowing owner/operators to empower their mobile workforce to work smarter, run their operations with greater efficiency, and leverage data to make better business decisions.”
