Omnitracs and Samsung Partner to Deliver Electronic Logging Solution to the Transportation Industry

DALLAS – October 19, 2017 – Omnitracs, LLC[1], a global pioneer of fleet management solutions to transportation and logistics companies, today announced a partnership with Samsung Electronics America, Inc.[2] to help the transportation industry address the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate. The partnership drives the creation of a fully-integrated joint solution, combining Samsung mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) and security solutions with Omnitracs’ XRS fleet management software to improve safety, data security and productivity for U.S.-based fleets.

The FMCSA compliant solution will increase safety by helping drivers easily monitor their hours of service (HOS) logs to comply with legal requirements during on- and off-duty management of vehicles, while doubling as a mobile device for recreational use during off-duty hours. Electronic tracking of HOS increases speed and accuracy of reporting, since drivers can track their hours in real time instead of fixed increments, such as manual entry methods. In addition, the solution provides fleets with key driver performance analytics, including fuel usage, drive time, speed, driving behavior, driver vehicle inspection reporting (DVIR) and trip data to improve driver safety, lower costs and increase productivity.

“In preparation for the new government regulation coming in December, partnering with Samsung furthers our commitment to providing carriers with Omnitracs’ best-in-class products and services,” said John Graham, CEO of Omnitracs. “Samsung has a reputation for combining state-of-the-art, ultra-secure technology with an intuitive design, which will be instrumental in driving ELD implementation throughout the trucking industry.”

The solution brings together the strength and breadth of the Omnitracs XRS platform with Samsung’s industry leading mobile devices and defense-grade security software platform, Samsung Knox. This delivers a powerful suite of fleet XRS optimization tools on a Samsung smartphone or tablet, such as the Galaxy Tab E, allowing fleets to improve measurement and reporting of driver and vehicle performance. Building Samsung Knox directly into the hardware helps keep data and communications secure, and the Knox Workspace capability provides a dual environment in the tablet, supporting work usage on the road and personal recreation during off hours.

“Addressing the ELD mandate is an industry priority, and we want to ensure participation in a way that is good for driver experiences and good for business,” said Zach Dirksen, corporate treasurer of Rocha Transportation. “With the Omnitracs XRS platform on the Samsung Galaxy Tab E device, our drivers are saving 15 to 20 minutes of administrative time each day, and it’s increasing driver productivity and satisfaction. Additionally, with improved fleet and device management, we’re seeing hardware cost savings of approximately 70 percent by switching to Samsung.”

“With the trucking industry racing to be compliant with ELD standards by end of year, Samsung technology is helping fleet and trucking companies achieve their goals, and do so with a solution that keeps driver satisfaction and ease-of-use top-of-mind,” said Ted Brodheim, vice president, vertical business and B2B mobile division, Samsung Electronics America. “Today’s transportation and trucking companies increasingly rely on mobile devices for navigational, analytical and recreational functions, and we are excited to collaborate with Omnitracs to deliver on next-generation mobility with telematics capabilities.”
