FMSCA offering free webcast on benefits of compliance

FMSCA offering FREE webcast on benefits of compliance

Tune in on January 31 from 2:30-4:30 EST

For fleets and organizations that may be affected by the FMSCA’s mandate for utilizing electronic logbooks to keep track of hours of service, an upcoming free webcast being held this Sunday, January 31 may be of interest.

The bill signed into law on December 4 of last year included “Beyond compliance” directives to require the FMSCA to devise and implement an incentive system for carriers who do one or a combination of the following:

  • install advanced safety equipment,
  • use enhanced driver fitness measures,
  • adopt fleet safety management tools, technologies and programs,
  • or satisfy an as-yet-unspecified set of other “standards determined appropriate by the Administrator”

Just what measures will be rewarded — and what the rewards themselves will be — were not specified by the law and are in part the reason for the agency’s listening sessions: It wants to hear from carriers, drivers and others in the industry about what measures should count as “beyond compliance” and what the incentives/rewards may look like.

InSight Mobile Data to Focus on Mobile Productivity at ConExpo 2014

InSight Mobile Data to Focus on Mobile Productivity at ConExpo 2014 GPS pioneers offer construction companies one comprehensive service to manage vehicles, assets and mobile workers in real-time.

InSight Mobile Data, Inc. a recognized pioneer of the fleet management industry headquartered in California, MD, will be demonstrating a full suite of mobile workforce management services in the Technology Pavillion (Booth # 64919) at this year’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show in Las Vegas. InSight is set to unveil several new solutions at the show including driver behavior performance evaluation and reporting tools, dynamic dispatching capabilities to smartphones and tablets, mobile apps for barcoding and asset tracking, and more – all integrated into one easy-to-use, flexible platform. The international show, which takes place every three years, is the premier showcase for the latest equipment, products, services and technologies in the construction industry. This year it is being held from March 4-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Visitors to Booth #64919 will be able to demo InSight’s mobile apps and other workforce management solutions right there on the spot, as well as register for a chance to win a brand new Verizon Ellipsis tablet (a $249 value). Many construction companies are stuggling with a lack of real-time visibility into their vehicles, equipment and mobile workers; costly risks to both employees and company reputation and high insurance premiums due to unsafe driving; back-office software systems that aren’t populated with real-time information from the field; wasted time and delayed response due to paper-based routing and dispatching; and disappointing ROI from current tracking solutions due to a lack of responsive service from their providers. What sets InSight apart from other providers of fleet management solutions is two-fold: a focus on providing visibility into the entire mobile work environment (not just vehicles – mobile assets, equipment, field-based employees, etc.), and a commitment to personal, flexible service that allows organizations to enhance the technology as they grow. They also offer flexible pricing plans, life of service warranties and a hardware obscolesence protection program to make sure their customers have continual access to real-time data from the field. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to offer a comprehensive suite of mobile workforce management services, along with the face-to-face service and support we are known for, to construction companies at CONEXPO,” said InSight President John Eller. “Today more than ever, construction operations are vulnerable to high risk and costly losses due to unsafe driving, vehicle and equipment theft and a lack of real-time data from the field. Our mission is to not only protect them from these losses and risks, but to enhance their profitability through strategic and intelligent deployment of mobile data technology in the field.” Learn more about our ConExpo appearance here.

InSight Mobile Data partners with Garmin to offer portable, integrated tracking, navigation and dispatch

InSight Mobile Data partners with Garmin to offer portable, integrated tracking, navigation and dispatch

Mobile workforce management and satellite navigation pioneers join forces to offer fleets a portable, all-in-one navigation and tracking tool that doesn’t require a hard installation.

InSight Mobile Data, Inc. today announced a partnership with Garmin, the global leader for satellite navigation, to provide support for the fleet 590 connected fleet management device. The fleet(TM) 590 is an all-in-one, dashboard-mounted unit that offers navigation, dispatch, and GPS tracking capabilities without the need for wiring or “hard” installation.

The Garmin Fleet 590 brings a full array of critical mobile management features, including vehicle tracking, dispatching, messaging and timeclock functionality, to organizations that don’t assign their employees permanently to one vehicle. Because it simply plugs in to the 12-volt power outlet in seconds without hard wiring, busy mobile operations are also spared the cost and inconvenience of taking vehicles off the road and scheduling installations.

“We’re very excited to be partnering with Garmin to offer yet another flexible and convenient mobile workforce management tool to the organizations and industries we serve,” said John Eller, founder and CEO of InSight Mobile Data. “Garmin’s a trusted leader and were one of the early pioneers in satellite navigation – just as InSight was in commercial GPS tracking. We’ve been partners for years, and joining forces to bring this new combination of portability and productivity to the market makes a perfect addition to the StreetEagle product line.”

Aside from the spoken turn-by-turn directions, voice activated navigation and messaging that are now familiar to Garmin users, the Fleet 590 also incorporates continuous tracking capability, driver behavior monitoring and driver identification features into the same unit. This is especially useful for organizations that allow employees to use their own vehicles, or that depend on contractors who might not drive a company vehicle.

“InSight Mobile Data is one of our longest-standing partners in the fleet business and we are excited to see them take the next step by integrating our Telematics API with the launch of the fleet 590,” said Chad Sallman, business development manager for commercial solutions at Garmin. “The Garmin fleet 590 in combination with InSight Mobile Data’s robust fleet management framework provides a comprehensive tracking and navigation solution that is easy to install.”
