Omnitracs and Samsung to Deliver ELD Solution

| October 20, 2017

ELD Solution

Omnitracs, LLC, a leader in fleet management solutions has formed a partnership with Samsung Electronics America, Inc. to help provide the transportation industry with an Electronic Logging Device (ELD solution) to address the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration mandate.

The partnership drives the creation of an ELD solution, combining Samsung mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) and security solutions with Omnitracs’ XRS fleet management software to improve safety, data security and productivity for U.S.-based fleets.

This solution is engineered to improve safety by helping drivers easily monitor their hours of service (HOS) logs to comply with legal requirements during on- and off-duty management of vehicles, while doubling as a mobile device for recreational use during off-duty hours.

From a broader perspective, electronic tracking of HOS increases speed and accuracy of reporting, since drivers can track their hours in real time instead of fixed increments, such as manual entry methods. In addition, the solution provides fleets with key driver performance analytics, including fuel usage, drive time, speed, driving behavior, driver vehicle inspection reporting (DVIR) and trip data to improve driver safety, lower costs and increase productivity.

“In preparation for the new government regulation coming in December, partnering with Samsung furthers our commitment to providing carriers with Omnitracs’ best-in-class products and services,” said John Graham, CEO of Omnitracs.

Building Samsung Knox directly into the hardware helps keep data and communications secure, and the Knox Workspace capability provides a dual environment in the tablet, supporting work usage on the road and personal recreation during off hours.

“With the trucking industry racing to be compliant with ELD standards by end of year, Samsung technology is helping fleet and trucking companies achieve their goals, and do so with a solution that keeps driver satisfaction and ease-of-use top-of-mind,” said Ted Brodheim, vice president, vertical business and B2B mobile division, Samsung Electronics America.
