LISLE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VisTracks, Inc., provider of the industry-leading family of FMCSA-certified Hours of Service (HOS), DVIR, and IFTA applications, has announced support for ELD hardware provider Pacific Track’s ELD device. This support is in addition to several other devices currently support by VisTracks. The addition of Pacific Track allows VisTracks’ resellers to obtain a high quality ELD product for their customers at an attractive price. VisTracks has passed all the requisite certification tests with this device and has certified to the FMCSA with posting on their website.
VisTracks Hours of Service product set consists of the Reseller-branded VisTracks’ DOT-compliant and certified tablet app and portal, together with a tablet or smartphone in the vehicle, along with a certified hardware device attached to the engine that transmits data via Bluetooth, Bluetooth LE, WiFi Direct, or a wired serial interface to the tablet. This solution will enable drivers to keep electronic logs of their driving status, be warned of impending violations, provide for pre- and post-trip vehicle inspection (DVIR), and follow additional state and federal rules as well as Canadian rules.
Key Features of VisTracks Hours of Service include:
- Our exhaustive certification testing and sophisticated programming take care of complex ELD rule edge cases (such as Michigan construction season) which many ELD products can not cover, thus providing assurance of surviving any technical audit
- Very easy to use, geared to non-technical drivers
- Full featured app with several unique features for both HOS and DVIR
- Synchronized portal for near real time back office management
- Numerous APIs for customization and integration with Fleet Tracking software applications
- Android and iOS support
- IFTA support
Key features of Pacific Track include:
- J1939, J1708, and OBD-II interfaces
- Built-in GPS
- Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
- Built-in flash memory (1+ month data storage)
- True odometer readings (not calculated odometer) for most vehicles
- Small form-factor polycarbonate enclosure with high quality molded cable
- OTA firmware updates (including bulk updates) via web backend
“We are pleased to have added Pacific Track to our family of supported devices. Their ELD device strikes the appropriate balance between functionality and price, thus providing a great choice for our resellers and their customers,” says Abraham S. Levine, Chief Operating Office of VisTracks. “Pacific Track is a great partner to work with, and many of our resellers have expressed strong interest in their ELD product.”
"Our hardware was designed from the ground up to be optimized for ELD applications," says Bernard Debbasch, CEO of Pacific Track. “By having built-in GPS, we reduce the burden on the processor and battery in the tablet or smart phone that is running the ELD app. Built-in GPS, along with internal flash memory storage, also ensures that, per ELD rules, hours of service events are captured even if the tablet or smart phone is not present in the vehicle. In addition, by eliminating the internal cellular modem, we offer the benefit of a major reduction in initial hardware cost, as well as decreased technical risk and complexity. It has been a pleasure working with VisTracks who has a quality product along with an extensive reseller network."
