BigRoad and Sylectus Announce Integration for HOS

| June 25, 2014

BigRoadBigRoad, a leading provider of fleet applications for trucking and motorcoach, and Sylectus, a business unit of Omnitracs Canada Inc., have announced a service to help fleets and drivers improve HOS compliance.

The essences is an integration between BigRoad’s smartphone-based hours of service (HOS) logging solution and the Sylectus transportation management system (TMS).

The approach allows drivers using BigRoad’s fully editable electronic driver log and the Sylectus mobile application to capture duty status changes, and send trip updates (arrive, load, empty) and paperwork back to the TMS — all from one smartphone or tablet.

Fleets can then use the BigRoad/Sylectus integrated solution to track a driver’s location and available HOS in real time.

“Drivers and fleets want productivity and ease of use. They also want the tools that run their business to work together seamlessly to produce results and ease the compliance burden,” says Terry Frey, COO and co-founder, BigRoad.

“We now have a really clean flow of HOS information directly from drivers on the road using BigRoad on the smart phone right through to our Sylectus TMS back at dispatch. The BigRoad/Sylectus integration allows us to pinpoint a driver’s location, and in real time, determine HOS availability,” he continued.
