VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 1, 2014) - FleetLynx™, by Vecima Networks (TSX:VCM), the provider of a comprehensive fleet management system solution for long haul trucking and other markets today announces that its driver services system is now fully EOBR (electronic on-board recorders) compliant.
EOBR provides a digital platform that allows fleet operators to adhere to hours of service regulations now required by the Department of Transportation. EOBR is a mandated requirement replacing current labor-intensive paper systems.
While EOBR has become a discussion around the conversion of systems to satisfy regulatory requirements, motor carriers are looking at the bigger picture in terms of the potential impact on driver availability, labour costs, and their ability to provide timely delivery services for their customers. While EOBR technologies help bring fleets to regulatory compliance, implementation of such solutions leads to increased fleet safety, decreased operational costs, and increased operational efficiency.
"The FleetLynx™ solution provides a very effective tool to conform with hours of service compliance, while providing the data needed to promote safety management initiatives, boost revenue performance, and reduce operational costs," stated Robert Forget, VP of Telematics for FleetLynx™. "Through our mobile driver application, FleetLynx™ enables simple, easy to use, electronic driver logs, hours of service monitoring, and inspection reports all integrated within our cloud based portal."
"Our drivers tell us they save 3-5 hours per week managing their compliance. That equates to a 7-9% increase in driver productivity," says Mario Raia, General Manager of Mobile Warrior. "This keeps drivers on the road, moving freight instead of being stuck doing paperwork. Our customers are also reducing internal administrative costs managing driver compliance and dealing with all the paper generated from the drivers. Now that's all managed electronically."
