Feb 25, 2016, 16:05 ET from Fleetmatics Group PLC

DUBLIN and BOSTON, Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fleetmatics Group PLC (NYSE: FLTX), a leading global provider of mobile workforce solutions for service-based businesses of all sizes delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS), today announced the Company will be hosting a free webinar titled, 'Making ELD Compliance Easier with Mobile Technology' on Wednesday, March 9 at 2:00 p.m. EDT. The webinar will focus on the ELD mandate and how businesses can leverage technology to meet compliance standards without new or additional hardware.

Registration for the webinar is currently open, and anyone interested in attending can sign up  here.

In addition, the Company also announced their commitment to support the recently announced specifications for the ELD Final Rule well in advance of the mandated timeframe. The ELD Final Rule, published by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association, is designed to improve safety and empower drivers in how they manage and certify their records of duty status.

The Company introduced the Fleetmatics Logbook application in 2014, to track Hours of Service (HOS) using an installed hardware solution in combination with a mobile application. Fleetmatics' Logbook application helps drivers demonstrate they are driving in compliance with HOS laws and may also help prevent violations through the use of proactive driver alerts that immediately notify drivers if they are over hours. The Company's solution is compliant with current HOS regulations and is designed with the flexibility to enable Fleetmatics to continue to keep it a compliant solution for new and existing customers. Simple mobile app updates have kept the Fleetmatics Logbook application up to date with the most recent HOS regulatory changes, and future releases will do the same with respect to the requirements of the ELD Final Rule.

"Attendees can expect to hear a wide range of information related to the ELD mandate, including how to navigate the compliance landscape, and how to make transitioning to this technology stress free," said Jonathan Durkee, Vice President of Product Management at Fleetmatics. "Mobile technology, in particular, is transforming the way service-based businesses approach government mandates, and we look forward to passing on that knowledge and more during the webinar."
