Signs You Should Switch Your ELD Provider

Before the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate went into full effect in December 2019, many fleets were in a hurry to get ready for the compliance phase of the mandate. Many ELD vendors were only selling solutions with features to remain in compliance with the mandate. These providers lack the features to make a fleet operate efficiently and receive a return on investment (ROI). 

Many organizations made a premature commitment to a vendor before researching and ended up purchasing a stand-alone ELD solution. Utilizing a multi-function integrated ELD solution, such as AssetWorks Field Service Solution (FSS), provides a range of other fleet management solutions. Making the transition to a new provider may seem daunting, but with these integrated solutions making the switch to FSS is a worthwhile investment:

System Integration

No two fleets are the same, which is why FSS provides custom functionality or integration to enhance a fleet’s operational efficiency. An inexpensive ELD can ensure you’re compliant with the mandate, but an integrated solution assures you are compliant while also holding a long-term value

Driver Behavior

FSS tracks many behaviors besides just hours of service: speeding, idling, swerving, hard braking, unauthorized vehicle use, and aggressive driving.
Whenever a concerning behavior occurs, real-time alerts are sent to supervisors so they can receive immediate notification. All driver behaviors are located on the software dashboard and can generate a driver report- including a consolidated driver scorecard report. Utilizing this data can eliminate wasteful driving habits, so your fleet can increase its ROI and keep costs down.

Incorporating field ticketing into your fleet will free up time for both your office staff and field operators while also improving customer satisfaction.

Field Operators: Electronically manage work orders, update inventory details, and track job statuses through a mobile device.
Office Staff: Can track operator’s current job in real-time. If any last-minute changes occur, office staff can send those changes directly to field operators electronically- eliminating paperwork and time-consuming data entry.
Customers: Receive real-time updates on wait and on-site times. The automatic job updates also provide customers with accurate same-day billing.

Utilizing field ticketing will earn your fleet a significant return on investment (ROI) by:

  • Avoiding duplicated data entry
  • Providing accurate data for billing and employee management
  • Reducing the amount of paperwork
  • Reducing billing cycles
Work Alone

FSS’s Work Alone solution provides constant two-way communication between field operators and the office. This constant communication ensures fleets comply with the lone worker legislation and safety policies. Workers can check in on their mobile devices, so office staff can monitor lone workers. If a worker misses a check-in, staff are immediately alerted.

GPS Tracking

Managers can track drivers through a breadcrumb tracking tool to analyze their fleet’s history, so they can see what assets were in a specific area at a specific time, and can address any situations in question.
FSS takes GPS tracking a step further by providing a heat map, so managers can visually pinpoint reasonings for increased operating costs through wasted fuel, poor driver behavior, lack of adherence to policies, etc.

If your fleet could benefit from these many integrative solutions, then it is time to switch your ELD provider. AssetWorks provides an ELD solution that goes beyond just an ELD. Through our 35 years of industry experience, we have the required tools for your fleet to receive an ROI and improve operational efficiency.
