NexTraq Partners with ISE Fleet Services to Launch Hours of Service (HOS) and DVIR Solution
Leading telematics provider expands GPS fleet tracking offering with automated HOS logs and Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting
Atlanta – August 10, 2016 – NexTraq®, a leading GPS fleet and asset tracking company, today announced that it has partnered with ISE Fleet Services (ISE FS) to expand its fleet management offering with the development of NexTraq Elogs, an integrated system for FMCSA 395.15 Hours of Service (HOS) compliance and Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting (DVIR). NexTraq Elogs can be upgraded in the future to the new ELD regulations.
The HOS regulations are designed to prevent accidents caused by driver fatigue. Issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the HOS rules require operators of commercial motor vehicles (CMV) to keep a record of working hours using a log book.
Instead of manually recording hours and keeping a paper log, carriers can now utilize NexTraq’s Elogs system to automatically track a driver’s time per FMCSA regulations. The solution ensures a driver’s time is recorded accurately, reduces the risk of potential violations / fines and allows for efficient roadside inspections. In addition, dispatchers will have real-time driver information to make resource allocation and load planning decisions.
NexTraq Elogs also provides an electronic DVIR capability which facilitates the completion of driver pre- and post-trip inspection forms and sends them to the back-office so mechanics have immediate visibility of equipment defects and can document repairs. The DVIR driver workflow is integrated into Elogs ensuring required inspections are performed at appropriate times. The driver interface facilitates quick, paperless, and consistent defect documentation for both vehicles and trailers.
To deploy the Elogs system with fleets, NexTraq has worked closely with CalAmp and ISE FS to provide an integrated hardware and software solution leveraging CalAmp’s new Android MDT-7 mobile display and LMU technology.
“We are excited to be partnering with an industry leader such as NexTraq,” said Hass Machlab, President of ISE FS. “By deploying our next generation Android compliance platform, we believe NexTraq’s customers will experience significant productivity gains and will ultimately enhance any fleet's efforts to improve safety.”
“Developing NexTraq Elogs with ISE FS was important to us as their organization has extensive industry knowledge and experience,” said Wyn Partington, Vice President of Product and Marketing at NexTraq. “We know our new solution is essential to our clients that must follow the Hours of Service regulations and we look forward to helping make a difference.”
