Software firm uDrove – a division of the Internet Truckstop company – is rolling out two new smart phone applications to help carriers and drivers comply with hours of service (HOS) regulations.

Software firm uDrove, a division of Internet Truckstop, is rolling out two new smart phone applications to help carriers and drivers comply with hours of service (HOS) regulations.

The uDrove Pro package adds electronic on-board recorder (EOBR) to any smart phone to produce accurate HOS logs, as well as inspection and diagnostic reports, electronic proof of delivery documents, tracking, fuel tax reports and business receipt capturing

Altogether, uDrove said the service is designed to create a simplified solution for drivers, allowing them to keep track of their entire trip packet electronically.

The uDrove Prime program is the firm’s newest stand-alone application and is aimed at short-haul drivers (150 miles and under) to help them acquire a “snapshot” HOS data on their smart phones that can be provided DOT officials.

It also features an editable list of inspection reporting and enhanced scanning of proof of delivery documents and fuel and business expense receipts to help users remain compliant.
