If you're preparing for the ELD mandate, you'll be relieved to know that ELDs are not only cost-effective but their benefits often result in a positive return on investment within just a few short months. Verizon Connect has partnerships with several light duty and heavy duty truck makers that allow you to have the necessary ELD hardware pre-installed in new vehicles. This means there are no extra hardware costs - simply activate your Telogis account online and you can start using it right away.
Other hardware options are a few hundred dollars per vehicle plus a regular service fee. Fleets that have already made the switch discover the additional savings from using a fleet management system actually end up paying for the cost of the device, along with the reduced administration and savings on HOS forms.
