GPS Insight Acquires Certified Tracking Solutions to Upgrade Fleet & Field Solutions, Strengthening ELD Support – Part 1
GPS Insight is committed to providing the industry with the best fleet management, field services and telematics software solutions in the market. We’re always looking for ways to strengthen our suite of solutions to help our clients thrive and grow their businesses. That’s why we are so excited to announce the acquisition of Certified Tracking Solutions, an industry leader in GPS telematics, fleet tracking and management, connected transportation, and industrial IoT.
In addition to bolstering fleet management, this acquisition will help GPS Insight bring custom forms solutions that target field operations, and highway maintenance and winter operations tools that boost government fleet capabilities. The combined strength of GPS Insight and Certified Tracking Solution’s innovative offerings will provide fleet and field service operations the tools they need to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and provide the data critical to their customer’s success.
Certified Tracking Solutions’ premiere brand, Titan GPS, is one of the best in the business. Adding it to the GPS Insight family expands our reach more extensively into Canada and adds a new suite of tools, including a crucial new ELD solution already certified in advance of the Canadian ELD mandate, specialty tracking and management solutions, and Bluetooth asset tracking for high-value tools.
The U.S. ELD mandate has been in effect for three years and by Jan. 1, 2023, commercial carriers in Canada must be in compliance by selecting a certified ELD provider. All motor carriers and drivers in the U.S. and Canada who are required to maintain duty service records are subject to the ELD requirement.
Electronic Logging Devices, or ELDs, are devices that are retrofitted into commercial vehicles to keep track of the amount of time spent driving among other important data that impacts the safety and performance of drivers.
An ELD keeps track of a vehicle’s engine to record information on whether it is operating, if it is moving, how far it has been driven, and how long the engine has been running. Law enforcement can check a driver’s hours of service when using an ELD by looking at the ELD’s display screen, printing information from the ELD, or soon electronically obtaining data from the ELD.
Next, we’ll dive a little deeper into ELD mandates and safety regulations. Stay tuned for Part 2!
