It’s almost been a year since the electronic logging device mandate took place. Truckers are still hauling loads. Things are different, that’s for sure. It’s time to ask the question, “Is your ELD working for you?”
Is your ELD working for you? Or is it making you work to it make it work?
How’s your ELD working out for you?
Have you heard any stories about ELDs not working properly? We’ve heard a few. One company we heard about shut down – at least they gave the drivers enough warning to get another system in place.
When it’s this vital to have a working system, going cheap may not be the best idea. It’s better to pay more for a system that you trust and you can use rather than get a cheaper program that crashes frequently.
At this point, you may have had your ELD for a year and are looking at buying another year’s contract. There are a few things to think about before signing up for another year.
How’s the service working?
- Have you had any crashes of the system?
- Do you know how to use the system quickly and easily?
- Does the reporting feature work consistently?
- How’s the customer support?
All of these questions need to have the right answers. If you’re not happy right now, maybe it’s time to look at a different system.
Making a new choice of ELD
Finding the replacement system seems like you’re stuck again like we were last year – getting into something without having time to do the right research. Last year, many of the ELD systems didn’t have too many reviews. How did you pick which one to buy? Was it based on what was available at the truck stop on December 16th? It wasn’t easy to research ELDs last year – there were only a few on the market long enough for people to rate and review.
Even now, we see other ELD products coming on the market. They promise everything, including vacuuming your cat.
That’s the problem. You don’t need an ELD to do all the things they promise. Each one of those bells and whistles adds
- more problems with the software
- more potential system failures
- monthly charges that increase.
Besides, your cat doesn’t like the vacuum, does it?
