“Plug-and-Play” Compliance Solution Offers Two-in-One Driver-Friendly e-Log Solution

Irvine, CA and Boise, ID (PRWEB) June 29, 2017

Independent owner-operators and small-fleet trucking companies can now use the certified, two-in-one Automatic On-Board Recording Device (AOBRD) and Electronic Logging Device (ELD) system from HOS Reporter as a flexible, cost-effective logging tool to ensure compliance with the ELD mandate slated to take effect later this year.

The HOS Reporter AOBRD/ELD system is a simple, more adaptable solution to automatically record driver hours and generate logs for official use. Particularly unique is the system’s dual functionality that gives carriers the convenience and flexibility of using an AOBRD solution for the first two years during the mandate’s provisionary period, then enables them to use their existing hardware to upgrade to a compliant ELD solution afterward. Unlike standard ELD systems, the AOBRD system also:

  • Gives drivers the ability to make manual log adjustments that are not stored or transferred to authorized safety officials
  • Does not require device synchronization with the Engine Control Module (ECM)
  • Allows logs to be inspected individually by safety officials without the use of DOT eRODS software

“As we spoke and engaged with drivers around the country, it became apparent that many of them were apprehensive about the mandate and most of the concerns stemmed around control of driver logs,” said Craig Jolly of HOS Reporter. “Knowing that the ELD mandate provides a provision allowing the continued use of compliant AOBRD systems for the next two years, our team took an innovative approach in developing a two-in-one AOBRD/ELD solution. We’re excited about offering a solution that gives drivers more control while ensuring compliance.”
The DOT/FMSCA mandate takes effect on December 18, 2017, and requires all North American carriers to use ELDs to report hours of service, mileage and other key attributes. Under a provision in the mandate, drivers who implement an AOBRD system by December 18, 2017 may continue to use it for mandate compliance through December 16, 2019, when everyone will be required to transition to ELD e-Logs only.
Product Function and Highlights

The easy-to-install HOS Reporter AOBRD/ELD device (Atlas) satisfies the upcoming e-Log mandate requirements, while simultaneously allowing drivers more freedom to manage their hours-of-service. Plus, every HOS Reporter subscription includes both AOBRD and ELD functionality and is customizable and designed to fit the different needs of individual drivers:

  • Atlas BT: A basic compliance solution that works with the drivers’ existing smartphone/tablet and data plan as a cost-effective subscription option
  • Atlas BT + HOS Reporter Dashboard Tablet (Coming Soon): A complete compliance solution that includes its own data plan, customizable apps and fully ruggedized hardware suitable for years of use
  • HOS Reporter e-Log App: User-friendly mobile app available in Android at Google Play and iOS at the App Store
