BYOD (bring your own device) and Garmin ELD solutions certified and registered with FMCSA.
JERICHO, N.Y. - NOVEMBER 28, 2017 Forward Thinking Systems, an innovative leader of fleet management and tracking solutions, has announced that its electronic logging device (ELD) solution is certified and registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) as an approved ELD.
Forward Thinking offers a top notch ELD solution with powerful functionality that aims to make the transition as smooth as possible for fleets.
âOur successful history with electronic logbooks and ECM-connected GPS modems gave us a head start on creating an excellent and dependable ELD solution.â said David Isler, CEO of Forward Thinking Systems. âThe result is an ELD solution thatâs easy to use, ensures youâll be compliant, and delivers more value than other ELD solutions on the market.â
The Forward Thinking ELD solution is built into Field WarriorÂŽ, the app for mobile workforces. Field WarriorÂŽ helps fleets improve daily operations with electronic driver logs, digital manifests, turn-by-turn commercial navigation, Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs), custom forms with signature and image capture, messaging, and more. Combining ELD with these and other tools has made the app an all-in-one powerhouse of productivity.
Unlike current AOBRD regulations, the ELD Mandate requires ELDs to have a direct connection to the vehicleâs ECM. The Forward Thinking ELD solution meets this requirement with a specialized cable that provides power to the ELD, and a secure, reliable connection to the vehicle. With this cable, BYOD (bring your own device) customers can turn their current devices into compliant ELDs, avoiding the need to buy expensive new ELD hardware.
Field WarriorÂŽ ELD is also available for compatible Garmin tablets, combining ELD compliance and cutting-edge fleet management solutions with the power of Garminâs world-class commercial navigation. âGarmin is pleased that Forward Thinking Systems has chosen the Fleet series as its preferred integrated navigation and display for hosting its Field Warrior application,â said Chad Sallman, Garmin senior business development manager for commercial solutions. âWe are confident that the combination of our purpose-built commercial tablet and the Field Warrior ELD application will provide fleets of all sizes an easy-to-use and durable solution for their ELD compliant requirements.â
