GLENVIEW, Ill. — Teletrac Navman, provider of GPS tracking and fleet management solutions, today announced it guarantees federally mandated Hours of Service compliance for its DIRECTOR product platform electronic logging device.
That means DIRECTOR HOS customers will receive firmware and software updates to comply with ELD mandate requirements throughout the ELD timeline and beyond — at no charge, noted Teletrac officials.
The current FMCSA 395.15 Hours of Service regulations allows the current solution compliance through December 2019.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's ELD Final Rule published in December 2015 mandates the use of compliant ELD devices. However, certain aspects of technical specifications that ELD devices will be required to comply with have yet to be published.
As a result, spokesmen said Teletrac Navman will continue to upgrade its existing DIRECTOR HOS customers with the relevant compliance specifications when and as they become defined, ensuring customers' DIRECTOR investments remain protected after the December 18, 2017, and December 16, 2019, compliance deadlines.
The DIRECTOR fleet management platform tracks assets and collects valuable data for business insights. In addition to reducing the paperwork necessary for tracking HOS, it provides second-by-second information to help carriers reduce operational expenses, identify trends, improve business processes and build a more efficient, safe and connected fleet.
"The information Teletrac Navman's DIRECTOR platform provides TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is absolutely critical to running an efficient and successful business," said Jake Gaitan, IT Director, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK. "We have more than 380 locations worldwide, operate in 42 states, and have enjoyed 85 consecutive months of growth. Essential to that success is for our franchise owners to have real-time information about the fleet so we can make the best business decisions, while always remaining in absolute compliance with all applicable safety regulations."
In addition to ensuring ongoing ELD mandate compliance as the specifications are released, Teletrac Navman DIRECTOR HOS customers will continue to receive free system installation and training to eliminate the worry of downtime while assuring compliance. "Throughout our 25 years in business, we've remained dedicated to fully supporting our customers as they've navigated industry changes. The ELD mandate is no exception," said Renaat Ver Eecke, president, Teletrac Navman. "The program we're announcing today underscores our commitment to our customers' success by enabling and ensuring their seamless transition to full ELD compliance, without having to make additional technology investments in their existing systems."
