Advanced tachograph solutions for compliance, efficiency and performance
Transport managers have long faced the struggle of working out complex drivers' hours to ensure compliance. It has often been a 'best guess' approach to determine a driver's driving and working hours and to forward plan their daily and weekly transport activities.
ORBCOMM's tachograph management solution empowers transport managers to ensure drivers are fully compliant with EU and national legislation through up-to-the-minute reporting of daily, weekly and fortnightly status updates. It eliminates the need for third-party tachograph analysis vendors through live and historical working hours information, fully automated tachograph downloading and in-built infringement reporting.
The new TachoVision feature allows dispatchers to plan ahead by giving live access to complex, hard-to-calculate, forward-looking tachograph data like Drivers Rest Periods, Extended Driving Days and Compensation Rules. Make plans based on actuals instead of guessing, with information that was previously only available historically.

The Driver Performance Scoring App is the most comprehensive driver performance app in the industry, scoring drivers on the three most important aspects of a driver’s behaviour that impacts any fleet: performance, compliance and safety.

Fleets can select which aspects of driver behaviour they wish to monitor and the weight they wish to attribute to each aspect.
The Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting (DVIR) app enables drivers to complete daily pre- trip and post-trip inspection reports on trucks and trailers using any Android- based phone, tablet or other in-cab device. By eliminating time-consuming and inaccurate paper-based records— and with direct, real-time upload to our reporting platform—this app is designed to save you time and money.
