iGlobal Successfully Updates its ELD Software to Comply with New HOS Regulations
(Ocala, Florida) – iGlobal, a leading provider of onboard computing and in-cab scanning systems for the transportation industry, announced today that it has successfully updated its ELD software to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s new Hours-of-Service (HOS) regulations that will take effect July 1, 2013.
The new HOS regulations require drivers to take a 30 minute “rest break” per every 8 hours of drive time. The update to iGlobal’s ELD software helps drivers comply with these regulations by tracking drive time and prompting the driver on how much time he or she has available until they must take their mandatory 30 minute break.
“Our goal in re-writing our software was to make it as easy as possible for drivers to comply with the new regulations,” said Eric Bauer, iGlobal President. “Now, drivers don’t have to spend valuable time trying to figure out if they are logging correctly.”
In addition to helping drivers, iGlobal’s updated software provides significant value to driver managers, as the updated back end software reflects the new hours. Driver managers have real-time access to their drivers’ available hours and can effectively assign loads to the drivers who have enough time to complete them.
