Geotab Registers ELD Solution with FMCSA

| October 18, 2017


Geotab, a leader in telematics, announced that its electronic logging device (ELD) solution, Geotab Cloud ELD, is now registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

Here’s why it’s so important: A reliable fleet compliance management platform for monitoring and recording Hours of Service (HOS), should ease customer implementation of the ELD mandate which aims to improve highway safety and is slated to take effect December 18, 2017.

The Cloud ELD platform works by connecting the Geotab telematics device with a mobile device running the Geotab Drive app through a secured cloud-based server for operating fleet management software. Unlike hard-wired or Bluetooth paired solutions that use a time-based approach with periodic status checks, the GO device continuously records and transmits data to the cloud-based program to effectively monitor and record HOS, including Records of Duty Status (RODS) and Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRS).

This means that this Cloud ELD does not require an in-vehicle pairing process and is designed for end-to-end protection of data.

“Geotab Cloud ELD is a great solution, leveraging cohesive technologies at an economical cost for a single operator, with integrated features and an open platform for managing large fleets,” says Neil Cawse, CEO, Geotab. “Every fleet has unique and dynamic management needs, but data logging reliability and driver convenience should not be viewed as mutually exclusive. Transitioning to Geotab’s cloud solution is a logical next step as the commercial trucking industry prepares to meet the ELD mandate.”

Geotab Cloud ELD enables advanced options including vehicle inspection reports, IFTA support, routing, risk management, accident reconstruction, driver safety, and third-party add-in solutions including cameras, temperature sending and tire pressure monitoring. Replacing proprietary systems with Geotab Cloud ELD can translate into overall cost savings including the ability to use readily available smartphones and tablets while also supporting a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) interest from fleet operators.
