Omnitracs announced it has completed testing on an electronic logging device (ELD) solution that meets the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)’s ELD Mandate, which goes into effect on Dec. 18, 2017.
Omnitracs offers an application package for its telematics devices that tracks Hours of Service (HOS), a key component of the ELD Mandate designed to improve safety on the road. Omnitracs’ Intelligent Vehicle Gateway (IVG) is now registered with the FMCSA on their self-certification list, ensuring that fleet customers with current Omnitracs solutions will be compliant with the ELD Mandate prior to the deadline.
As additional preparation for the ELD Mandate, Omnitracs enhanced its system architecture and security measures to handle the anticipated increase in data traffic. To improve the user experience, Omnitracs also updated its entire suite of applications to improve safety, productivity, and ease-of-use.
