Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Solutions

Turn your ELD into a Fleet Productivity Solution

Now that Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) are here, fleet managers recognize that e-logs need to be more than just compliance. The best ELD solutions offer a significant return on investment by improving safety records, increasing productivity, reducing operating costs, driving up fuel efficiency and helping retain drivers.

ORBCOMM’s ELD / Hours-of-Service (HOS) solution makes it possible for fleet owners to turn their ELD platform into a profit center. Beyond ELD compliance, our e-log solution integrates a broad set of fleet management tools – driver performance scoring, messaging, jobs and workflow, DVIR and more – that turns it into a productivity hub. Its open, scalable Android platform provides carriers with the flexibility to add functionality as their needs change.

That’s why fleet managers with ELDs are switching to ORBCOMM for reliable, driver-friendly, scalable ELD technology.

  • App Store for Drivers: Add third-party or custom-developed apps to our Android ecosystem for drivers to use. App deployment is fully managed.
  • Media Manager: Send documents, training guides or videos to drivers’ in-cab devices using Media Manager – to individual or groups of devices – with scheduled distribution and expiry.
  • In-Cab Scanning: Scan documents, capture signatures and take vehicle images in high resolution, with auto edge-detect and enhancements.
  • 4G LTE connectivity: Get faster speeds and longer-term stability with 4G LTE devices.

Go Beyond ELD Compliance for ROI

  • Driver Scoring: Give live on-board scoring, feedback and coaching covering three categories: safety, performance and compliance. Highlight areas for improvement with color-based scoring and drill down to coaching tips.
  • Advanced Messaging: Improve communication between driver and office staff with customizable form messages, data entry forms and text-to-speech functionality.
  • Jobs & Workflow: Schedule drivers’ jobs including deliveries, pick-ups, fuel stops, rest locations and more. Guide them through the working day on the in-cab device, with auto-arrive forms providing work instructions on arrival.
  • DVIR: Get drivers back on the road faster and safer every day with the Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting (DVIR) app.
  • Fuel Monitoring: Use the industry’s only Fuel Auditor to makes sure all fuel purchased goes in the tank and stays there until it is burnt by the engine.

Attract and Retain Drivers with ELDs They Love to Use

  • Easy-to-Use Interface: Get drivers up-to-speed with an easy-to-use, quick-to-learn interface; voice prompts, on-screen color coding alerts when hours are running low.
  • HOS Advisor: Maximize remaining drive time and working hours with HOS Advisor; track status, time until next break and hours left in their shift.
  • Streamlined Roadside Inspections: Share or send up-to-date electronic logbook information at the touch of a button.
  • Correct Logs On-the-Go: See, edit, add remarks to e-logs quickly, easily and legally. After modification, all data is kept, providing an audit trail to maintain compliance.

Improve Safety & Compliance

  • Hours of Service Workspace: Use this dedicated workspace to get clear, actionable and real-time ELD/HOS information for every driver.
  • Drivers Hours of Service Grid: See every driver’s working hours and drive time, available time until next break, shift time, duty state and current location – updated every 5 minutes.
  • Driver Duty Grid: Displays drivers’ duty logs for their current cycle, which can be edited/managed from within this workspace by back office staff. Driver violations are highlighted on the grid, along with details of which regulation was violated.
  • Missing Miles: Eliminate miles driven with no driver association. As driver logs are recorded by BT500 hardware, all driving is recorded, even if a driver drives the vehicle while not logged in. On login, the most likely driver is presented with miles recorded while not logged in and asked to claim or reject the miles.
  • Vehicle Exceptions Workspace: Manage unidentified driving with this highly visible audit trail created when an exception is acknowledged, showing who acknowledged it and when. Auto-identify the most likely driver to be assigned to driving events to resolve exceptions.
