What one piece of advice would you give someone shopping for an ELD solution?
Don’t just look at price. There are many new companies out there that lack the industry experience to deliver robust, compliant solutions, and you don’t want to be caught unintentionally breaking hours of service rules because of this. You’ll find that companies with industry expertise, like Omnitracs, actually offer competitively priced solutions.
What are best practices for driver adoption and implementation?
Don’t wait until the last minute to find a solution. Allow enough time for training to get comfortable with the system. Drivers need to learn how to use the system as well as what to do at roadside inspection.
