SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Samsara, the leader in Internet connected sensor systems for fleets, today announced official certification of its fleet management solution on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) ELD registry. With Samsara's customer base expanding at over 250% annually, this new certification will ensure compliance for a fast-growing list of fleets ranging from family-owned trucking companies to Fortune 500 enterprises.
Jason Boldt, Transportation Manager at Jake's Finer Foods, said he's glad to be getting ahead of the ELD mandate. "Compliance doesn't keep me up at night because I know Samsara is on top of it. I don't worry about it," Boldt said. "Honestly, all of Samsara's alerts and truly-live tracking -- watching each truck drive down the road and knowing exactly what time it arrived and departed -- give me tremendous peace of mind."
Samsara's ELD-compliant Hours of Service solution includes plug-and-play vehicle gateways and a mobile app that runs on any Android or Apple iOS device. The solution features 15-minute installation, an intuitive interface for drivers, and powerful reports and alerts for compliance managers.
"At Samsara, we've purpose-built our product to make it easy for fleet managers, safety and compliance officers, and drivers to achieve compliance now and in the future," said Billy Waldman, Head of Product at Samsara.
Unlike traditional e-logging systems, Samsara's ELD is part of a complete fleet technology platform designed to increase safety and operating efficiency. Samsara's data platform integrates a built-in hotspot, real-time GPS tracking, temperature monitor sensors, and dashboard cameras, providing fleet managers with unique visibility – for example, to see the exact location and video footage for a harsh braking event, or to get instant alerts of reefer temperature changes before a delivery.
"We are committed to the total success of our customers. Compliance should be easy for drivers, and fleet managers should be wowed," Waldman said. "Beyond compliance, we are investing in R&D to develop technologies that reduce accidents, improve customer service, and lower operating costs."
ELD compliance functionality is included in the latest version of the Samsara Driver App and gateway software, which are available for sale through Samsara. Existing customers will receive the new compliance features, at no cost, via a seamless over-the-air software update.
Samsara's industrial, transportation, and logistics IoT platform creates a digital representation of customers' physical assets and operations. Supporting emerging businesses and Fortune 500 enterprises alike, Samsara reveals insights that improve safety, efficiency, compliance, and customer satisfaction. With integrated hardware + cloud technology, Samsara is scalable, affordable, and easy to use. Samsara was founded by Sanjit Biswas and John Bicket, co-founders of Meraki (acquired by Cisco Systems for $1.2 billion) and is funded by Andreessen Horowitz and General Catalyst.
