Bemidji Bus Line has chosen BigRoad - A Fleet Complete Company as their
compliance partner, allowing their fleet of deluxe motorcoach drivers to
work seamlessly under one solution.
"We needed a solution that could allow our drivers to switch between
just tracking their hours-of-service or running an electronic logging
device," notes Phil Cox (News - Alert), Safety and Compliance Manager at Bemidji Bus
Line. "We looked at other options, but most providers required our
entire fleet to run ELDs. There was no flexibility for passenger
carriers whose compliance rules change depending on the vehicle or
length of trip."
Bemidji tried another ELD solution but found their product did not live
up to their promises. Within months, they reached out to BigRoad to test
out the BigRoad Mobile App, BigRoad Web App, and DashLink ELD. The
difference was astounding. BigRoad's solution was able to accommodate
Bemidji's needs without issue.
The DashLink ELD creates accurate and reliable electronic driver logs
through real-time location tracking. It pairs with the BigRoad Mobile
App, an intuitive electronic logbook, through a Bluetooth connection.
Within the app, drivers can choose to connect to the Dashlink ELD or
just use the electronic logbook without engine-connection, ensuring that
they are always compliant.
Both the DashLink ELD and the BigRoad Mobile App push drivers' data to
the cloud, allowing office staff to use the BigRoad Web App to access
information in real-time. "The BigRoad Web App has made it so much
easier for our dispatchersto track safety and compliance," Cox shares.
"If we see a driver is at risk of a violation, we can send them a quick
message in the two-way messenger to review their logs. Since switching
to BigRoad, we have significantly improved our hours-of-service
compliance and reduced form-and-manner errors."
"With the ability to support a variety of fleets, drivers, and different
compliance requirements, our solution is the top choice for ELD mandate
compliance," added Jake McGuire, Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and
Customer Success at BigRoad. "Our solution is specifically designed to
make the day-to-day routines of drivers and dispatchers easier - and all
at a competitive price."
