Switch to Reliable ELDs to Keep HOS Records in Canada

Switching to a reliable ELD provider can help lower your costs and save time, money, and other resources. Electronic logs allow you to review real-time data and keep track of every single vehicle in your fleet. If you’re a truck driver, a dependable electronic logbook will save you noncompliance penalties and costly fines. Staying compliant with the ELD mandate and HOS regulations is possible thanks to the device’s logging capabilities, which ensure the CMV (commercial motor vehicle) or fleet is legally fit to run its routes. Electronic logging devices increase driver safety and productiveness by managing their time and ensuring they have enough time to rest during a drive or between routes. They also help prevent fatal crashes and accidents by reducing driver fatigue and staying ahead of vehicle malfunctions with diagnostic features. Keep in mind that a reliable provider should be able to help you with any issue, problem or difficulty that arises during your drives.

So if you’re on the lookout for a new elog provider, HOS247 is the ideal solution for you. Our electronic logbook focuses on full dependability, comprehensive reliability, easy-to-install hardware and software, user-friendly features, and amazing customer service that is available seven days a week. This all amounts to one thing: we’re passionate about bringing everything you need to the table when it comes to the electronic logbook service you’re looking for.

What Are ELD HOS Records?

HOS stands for hours of service, and it refers to the maximum number of hours a driver is allowed to be on duty—including driving time. All CMV drivers, including owner-operators, truck and bus drivers, are required by law to comply with the most recent HOS regulations. 

ELD, on the other hand, stands for electronic logging device. These devies work to automatically capture the HOS and driving time records for any CMV driver. The data captured by an electronic logbook includes relevant information such as:

  • Compliance reports regarding drivers HOS.
  • Real-time GPS tracking for fleet management and operations processes.
  • State mileage monitoring (which helps with International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) tax reports).
  • Visibility of the fleet with real-time data and notifications.
  • Vehicle diagnostics for fault code detections and maintenance planning purposes.

Electronic logging devices will be mandatory for most businesses centered around commercial motor vehicle trucking operations come January 1, 2023. These regulations were set in place to provide accurate information regarding drivers’ HOS, as well as to increase driver safety and avoid fatal accidents and crashes. ELDs record data directly from the vehicle’s engine data, including how many miles any given vehicle has traveled, the number of stops and the time for each break while driving, as well as real-time GPS location.

Why Is ELD Reliability Necessary?

As previously mentioned, electronic logbooks provide all sorts of relevant data for the CMV company. It’s an important piece of the puzzle for any fleet management operation. This is why a reliable ELD solution is absolutely necessary for any company that needs a thorough record-keeping of their RODS (records of duty status). If a single piece of the system, be it the hardware, software, or mobile app, stops working, the company can face harsh penalties and hefty fines for noncompliance. It can also be costly if vehicles are put out of service and unable to move, which affects the business’s delivery times and workflow. As you can see, a trustworthy provider is key for any business’s operations and optimization. Being able to rely on your elog and being able to find actionable answers to any problem that may arise is absolutely essential in this day and age. That’s why at HOS247 we focus on being a solution you can lean on: fully dependable, efficient, and with premium customer support.

How Can Finding a Better ELD Provider Help You Lower Your Costs?

Switching to a reliable ELD provider can help boost your business operations while lowering your management costs. An optimal elog service can:

  • Help you avoid fines, vehicles being put out of service and missed loads.
  • Improve route planning and dispatch tasks by ensuring fleet visibility.
  • Prevent vehicle breakdowns and avoid collisions with vehicle diagnostics.
  • Provide real-time notifications that help improve operational efficiency.
  • Improve driver behaviour with idle reporting.
  • Help reduce Transport Canada audit risk.

The biggest differential of a reputable ELD provider is quality technical support. Malfunctions shouldn’t happen, but if they do, you need to have reliable support. You can’t afford to have a vehicle stopped, unable to deliver a load due to any given malfunction. Your provider should have a fully dependable support team ready to aid you whenever your business (or any of your drivers) needs it. HOS247 provides outstanding customer support for our electronic logging services every day of the week, which makes us one of the best options in the electronic logbook market. Simply put, you can always count on us; we’ll be there for you.

Final Thoughts

Switching to a reliable electronic logbook is a great way to lower your costs. From avoiding fines to helping keep your business on track and running smoothly, and from helping your drivers never miss a load to preventing vehicle breakdowns and avoiding collisions. A reliable provider can help lower your costs and increase profitability in two main ways: by providing a quality elog system and aiding you with any problem or issue that may come up on the way. If you have a problem and rain is pouring down, a hailstorm threatens the horizon, or thunder strikes, your provider needs to be there for you, but more often than not, that isn’t the case. Most elog service providers have less than ideal customer service that can leave drivers hanging out to dry, costing you two of your most important resources: time and money. 

At HOS247, we work hard to provide truckers with a solution that is effective, efficient, and reliable. One of our main focus points is providing superb customer service, helping you find a solution to any problem you may encounter. Your business can’t afford to stop, so neither can we. All our logbook plans include multilingual customer support available in English, Russian, Polish, and Spanish from Monday to Sunday. We are here to provide the driver and fleet manager support with the features they need, while helping you lower your operations costs and increase profitability.
