TORONTO, CA: The global leader in telematics, Geotab with more than 450,000 vehicles in 70 countries has recently announced that the complete ProPlus monthly plan will now include the Hours of Service (HOS) tools needed by fleets to meet the new guidelines issued by Electronic Logging Device (ELD). Earlier, Geotab charged separately for this feature, but to deliver more value and simple selections, the firm has now added the ProPlus plan for comprehensive fleet management solutions.

 “Certain customers require up-to-the-second data for increasing safety, compliance and operational efficiencies,” said Geotab CEO, Neil Cawse. “ProPlus provides three times more data for GPS fleet management than previous plans. This increase in speed and quantity of data points allows for the enabling of animated near live vehicles on a map and better utilization of our in-vehicle driver coaching solution GO TALK.”

With the arrival of FMCSA's Hours of Service Final Rule, drivers have to move to Electronic Driver Logs by December 2017. Geotab Drive, Geotab's HOS ELD and vehicle examination application included in ProPlus, makes the move as consistent as could be expected under the circumstances. Included on the Geotab Marketplace and accessible on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for Android, Geotab Drive associates with the Geotab GO Device to give a automatic procedure to make exact records of the time a business driver spends in every obligation status: On Duty Not Driving, Driving, Sleeper Berth and Off Duty. The framework is easy to utilize and offers drivers more opportunity to finish day by day errands by rearranging the work accordingly with time.
