Thank you for your interest in our solution. We'd love to learn more about your fleet.

Modernize your fleet wisely

Upgrading your fleet’s telematics and ELD technology? Good move. But the real test is picking the right one. Though tempting, consumer-grade tablets aren’t designed for the rigors of the road, especially in winter.

In trucking, in-cab devices and tablets are more than gadgets; they’re key to your fleet’s efficiency and connectivity, and must be capable of enduring the cold, drops, and weak signals, and be easy to manage no matter how many you’re using inside your fleet.

Our whitepaper will help you make an informed choice.

“We had our drivers cover the consumer-grade tablets with blankets and jackets to try and keep them warm enough to work in winter.”
