BigRoad and Sylectus Announce Integration

Integration between BigRoad smartphone based electronic driver's log and Sylectus transportation management system helps drivers and fleets proactively manage HOS compliance

WATERLOO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- BigRoad, a leading provider of fleet applications for trucking and motorcoach, and Sylectus, trucking's most powerful network and a business unit of Omnitracs Canada Inc., announced today a joint commitment to help fleets and drivers improve HOS compliance, and they unveiled a new integration between BigRoad's popular smartphone-based hours of service (HOS) logging solution and the Sylectus transportation management system (TMS).

The integration allows drivers using BigRoad's fully editable electronic driver log and the Sylectus mobile application to capture duty status changes, and send trip updates (arrive, load, empty) and paperwork back to the TMS -- all from one smartphone or tablet. Fleets can then use the BigRoad/Sylectus integrated solution to track a driver's location and available HOS in real time.

"Drivers and fleets want productivity and ease of use. They also want the tools that run their business to work together seamlessly to produce results and ease the compliance burden," says Terry Frey, COO and co-founder, BigRoad. "For all of these reasons, we have chosen to take a very open approach to the market, integrating with critical fleet technologies, such as the Sylectus TMS through our BigRoad API. We're all about making life on the road easier for truckers."

"We now have a really clean flow of HOS information directly from drivers on the road using BigRoad on the smart phone right through to our Sylectus TMS back at dispatch. The BigRoad/Sylectus integration allows us to pinpoint a driver's location, and in real time, determine HOS availability. This complete picture of a driver's capacity keeps us fully compliant at all times, and it allows us to capitalize on more business opportunity while keeping our customers happy," says Jim Tropf, president of Tenpoint Expediting Services Inc., a customer of both BigRoad and Sylectus.

"The integration with the BigRoad app offers our customers a more interactive way to dispatch and track drivers and monitor their active HOS data in real time," says Stuart Sutton, general manager of Sylectus. "Dynamic information exchange between BigRoad and Sylectus TMS enables fleets to better comply with FMCSA regulations and improves dispatchers' ability to help their drivers adhere to HOS rules."
