WATERLOO, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Long Road Racing, a race car fabrication and build company specializing in road racing, selected BigRoad’s DashLink to achieve electronic logging device (ELD) mandate compliance. BigRoad’s intuitive interface was heads and shoulders above the competition, driving Long Road Racing’s decision.
Maintaining DOT and FMCSA compliance was a challenge for company owner Glenn Long, as trucking isn’t his primary business. He explains, “We deliver race cars across North America so we have to track our driving hours and compliance with the rules. I hated all of the paperwork that I was required to hold onto. Not being primarily in the trucking industry, I didn’t know how long I was supposed to keep our daily logs for, or even if they were being filled out correctly.”
When Glenn heard about the upcoming ELD mandate, he knew he had to find a solution that would take the effort out of compliance. After testing several solutions, he selected BigRoad. “The developers and I must think alike because BigRoad was by far the easiest system to use,” he explains.
Once he installed DashLink ELD into his trucks, it didn’t take long for his drivers to learn how to operate using the engine-connected logging solution. They didn’t need to become compliance experts or be industry veterans because everything was done automatically for them.
BigRoad has taken the time and effort out of compliance for Long Road Racing so that they can focus on what they do best - building fast race cars. Glenn shares, “With BigRoad, I don’t have to understand every nuance of DOT compliance anymore because it’s taken care of for me. That’s a huge comfort. I would absolutely recommend BigRoad to anyone in a similar situation as me.”
“Creating a driver-friendly user experience has always been a top priority for BigRoad,” explains Mike Davies, Vice President of Product at BigRoad. “It’s critical for us to have a product that company drivers and owner-operators actually want to use. Compliance shouldn’t be difficult and with BigRoad it isn’t!”
