VDO RoadLog capabilities expanded with online convenience and mobile connectivity

Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket has expanded its VDO RoadLog portfolio with a range of new products and services that bring innovations in logbook automation and fleet management. These new technologies have grown the VDO RoadLog platform into a complete family of log automation and fleet management products.

Now, the VDO RoadLog portfolio has expanded to include new options for online and mobile connectivity that not only improve operational efficiency for drivers and fleet managers, but also make the workload easier and less stressful. These new innovations include VDO RoadLog Connect, VDO RoadLog ELD Plus and VDO RoadLog Fleet Online.

Drivers can now send log data directly to their home base via a smartphone with the new VDO RoadLog Connect Key, a WiFi enabled USB drive, and the VDO RoadLog Connect app. The Connect app sends the log data to the VDO RoadLog Fleet Software, where it becomes part of the complete compliance record. With VDO RoadLog Connect, compliance records can be kept up to date even when drivers are still on the road.

VDO RoadLog ELD Plus adds GSM cellular connectivity to the standard VDO RoadLog ELD, enabling real-time driver and tractor performance monitoring by fleet managers, as well as wireless transmission of all log data. Users of RoadLog ELD Plus will manage their data with new web-based fleet software VDO RoadLog Fleet Online, a fleet management and compliance software that allows one or more fleet managers to access data simultaneously via an Internet connection.
