InSight Mobile Data Announces FMCSA ELD Certification for the StreetEagle Utility Tablet

California, MD (PRUnderground) November 1st, 2017

(CALIFORNIA, MD) – InSight Mobile Data, Inc., a leading provider of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) tools for companies of all sizes, announced today that its StreetEagle ELD solution running on the SE Utility Tablet is now certified with the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration). A provider of AOBRD (Automatic On-Board Recording Device) solutions for many years, InSight has completed the product development and testing necessary to meet all the technical and functional specifications for the more stringent ELD (Electronic Logging Device) requirements.

The solution is “all-in-one,” complete with a device connected to the vehicle’s ECM, software to collect, interpret and populate the HoS and DVIR data required and a ruggedized 8” tablet with user-friendly software for drivers to manage their daily activities. The package includes a docking station for both data and power connections, a Verizon data plan, MDM (mobile device management), mounting system and protective case in addition to a complete suite of software (StreetEagle ELD, MRM, Fuel Management, IFTA and more) – all for one monthly fee.

“Our experience providing AOBRD solutions for years has taught us a few things,” said Doug Hawley, InSight’s COO. “The ELD mandate, although a long time in coming, has presented many new challenges for our customers. We’ve found that by taking a lot of questions off the table – like what type of device is best for drivers, what size data plan is required and how to best manage the whole transition – we help make a difficult situation a little easier.”

StreetEagle ELD is built for drivers. The app has a driver-friendly interface and works seamlessly with a wide variety of other applications designed to make life easier in many work situations, both in and out of the cab. Using StreetEagle ELD, all the guesswork is taken out of compliance – drivers are prompted with audible and on-screen notifications of available driving hours, breaks and DVIR requirements. And StreetEagle ELD goes beyond the FMCSA mandate by including a fuel management system, automated IFTA data collection, industry-specific Rule sets and a version for Spanish speaking workers.

The solution also provides a comprehensive backend system for Fleet Managers, Safety Managers and Dispatchers including: real-time views of individual driver HoS statuses, multiple alerts for identifying potential violations and a full suite of compliance specific reports. In addition to meeting the requirements for compliance, the system includes a complete set of telematics capabilities including: vehicle analytics, driver behavior monitoring, geofencing with configurable alerts, real-time fleet status board, custom reporting and dashboards, as well as many third-party integrations to help companies with fleets run a safer, more efficient operation.

The StreetEagle Utility Tablet is rugged and reliable – a complete mobile work solution fully deployed and supported by InSight. It is the perfect platform for companies with fleets that need to comply with the FMCSA mandate for ELD and want flexibility to grow with a device that will last in rough, mobile environments for years to come.

“When our team of engineers tackled the job of upgrading our AOBRD software to meet the FMCSA’s ELD mandate, we wanted to make it as user-friendly and as flexible as possible” said Chris Eller, Director of Product Development for InSight. “Although the software will run on any Android device, our customers have found that having a “purpose-built” device makes it easier on everyone involved – the driver, the fleet/safety manager and our support team.”
