Fleetmatics Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Solution Registers with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)

BOSTON, Oct. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- After a comprehensive development and evaluation process, Fleetmatics, a Verizon Company, has registered its Fleetmatics REVEAL LogBook Electronic Logging Device (ELD) for Android solution with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).� Commercial drivers who are currently required to maintain records of duty status (RODS) will be required to use an ELD to record Hours of Service (HOS) by Dec. 18, 2017.

REVEAL LogBook ELD manages drivers' RODS, enabling customers to easily record and store HOS information, and meets all technical specifications mandated by the FMCSA. Rigorous testing and input from industry experts has greatly improved LogBook's ease of use, and helps ease the burden of transitioning to electronic logs. Fleetmatics will also continue to support customers who monitor their FMCSA RODS and HOS regulations with the LogBook AOBRD-specific solution. Customers utilizing REVEAL LogBook applications have access to 24/7 driver support.

According to FMCSA regulations, motor carriers must select and install an ELD solution, and ensure drivers are trained to use them. Drivers must also understand and be able to use ELDs by the required Decemberdeadline, including how to annotate and edit RODS, certify RODS and collect required supporting documents.

"REVEAL LogBook ELD makes the transition to electronic logging simple and fast with no additional hardware," said Todd Ewing, director, product management for Fleetmatics. "The ELD mandate deadline is coming up in just a couple of months, and we're ready to help get customers up and running very quickly on our FMCSA-listed solution."

The REVEAL LogBook ELD application includes streamlined certification flow, enhanced sub-status selections and improved Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) functionality. A redesigned user interface simplifies the transition to ELD for both drivers and the back office. The app also provides flexibility to existing customers, enabling the continued use of their automatic onboard recording device (AOBRD) solution, or the ability to upgrade to the new app on their own schedule, without any additional hardware installation.

Fleetmatics REVEAL LogBook ELD Edition is available now for download in the Google Play store.
