EROAD, a provider of fleet management, electronic tax reporting and ELD compliance solutions, announced real-time truck location and driver’s Hours of Service (HOS) data from its ELD solution will be integrated with McLeod Software’s LoadMaster Symphony Mobile Communications and Dispatch modules. With the integration, LoadMaster users can better manage driver availability, plan routes and improve visibility into ETA of in-progress dispatches.
“To meet the upcoming ELD mandate requirements, working with a provider who has an easy-to-use and driver friendly ELD, and one who can synch with McLeod LoadMaster Dispatch, is essential for McLeod Software customers,” said Norm Ellis, president of EROAD North America. “This new integration will enable them to continue to use familiar software, and to take advantage of accurate and reliable EROAD data to meet compliance, operational and driver needs.”
EROAD’s ELD captures driver’s HOS data automatically, including time logged per status category and available drive and on-duty hours. Beyond compliance, having accurate, reliable data from EROAD in the McLeod software will drive efficiency and productivity, and improve customer satisfaction for carriers, the companies said.
The truck location and HOS capability from EROAD will be available to license in the McLeod LoadMaster Version 17.2 release this fall. The company anticipates adding EROAD’s forms-based messaging for the McLeod LoadMaster Version 18.1 release.
