AOBRD to ELD and more: Above & Beyond at McLeod Software User Conference 2019

It can be hard to keep track of all the changes the industry is facing now. Making sure drivers are prepared for AOBRD to ELD, keeping up with new regulations and compliance and facing the growing concerns around driver acquisition and retention are all hot topics. We are happy to be back once again as at McLeod Software User Conference in August and we’re looking forward to showcasing our two-way asset-tracking capabilities and complete transportation management solutions.

ELD: The Big Switch

ELD is a hot topic on everyone’s lips, as the countdown continues to the December deadline. In our recent survey, 75% of fleets are still using AOBRDs with just a few months to go until the FMCSA’s implementation plan is complete. Using ELDs goes far beyond simply putting a new device in the cab. There is training, policy, documentation and implementation to consider. We’ll be able to go through the whole process step-by-step on the floor in Denver. Be sure to join us and Dave Heller from the TCA for one of our breakout sessions, on August 27th where we’ll be discussing how truck fleets can migrate easily from AOBRDs to ELDs and efficiently with minimal disruption. It’s one of three breakout sessions we’ll be taking part in throughout the conference. Join us for our other breakout sessions on driver workflow with McLeod LoadMaster and our product showcase. Some of the other concerns we hear from customers include changes to regulations and compliance, solving the problems of driver acquisition and retention, how are companies keeping drivers happy and how are detention times are continuing to impact business? It all boils down to boosting the bottom line and that’s where telematics comes in. In today’s demanding industry environment, carrier expectations are increasing, and providers are being called to go above and beyond. We’re here to help with that.
