Companies collaborate to introduce IoT-enabled logging devices for use by service and distribution companies
MILPITAS and SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 13, 2017 – FleetUp, the premier provider of electronic logging devices (ELD)/hours of service (HOS) compliance solutions for intelligent fleet management, and Aeris, a pioneer and leader in the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced they are collaborating to help service and distribution companies around the world improve their fleet management operations through IoT-enabled logging devices.
FleetUp applies big data technologies to fleet management with a patented system that enables companies to maximize profitability, improve driver safety and more effectively comply with current and future regulations. Aeris® IoT Connectivity Services offers many features to assist transportation services the opportunity to enhance service delivery performance, increase service radius, reduce payroll and cut down on idle truck times.
FleetUp Command FMS is a comprehensive fleet management system offering service and distribution companies insight into their operations, empowering them with actionable data to optimize the efforts of drivers and allowing for maximum revenue while reducing operating costs. FleetUp Command is offered as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and leverages the power of the FleetUp ELD, the first ELD approved by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA).
Aeris and FleetUp are addressing an important need for service and distribution companies, who have until December 2017 to implement certified ELDs to record HOS as required by a Federal mandate from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
FleetUp will install the Aeris global subscriber identity module (SIM) at the point of manufacture, reducing both supply-chain costs and deployment time. By utilizing Aeris’ single global access point name (APN), the FleetUp system can also be deployed anywhere in the world, even in the most remote locations on a simple plug-and-play basis, removing the necessity to configure local network settings.
