Fleet management systems provider Gorilla Safety announced that its Electronic Logging Device (ELD) product is now available in Spanish.
Gorilla Safety's self-certified ELD — one of the first to be listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) site as such — was developed to address and meet the rules set forth by FMCSA's ELD mandate. Gorilla Safety's ELD lets users track hours of service, stay compliant with edits and automate all documents required for roadside inspections, according to the company.
Fleets with Spanish speakers will find it even easier to integrate with Gorilla Safety's ELD. While drivers must speak English during roadside inspections, it can be easier for some to manage their day-to-day operations in Spanish, Gorilla Safety noted.
Offering the ELD in both English and Spanish is intended to aid these drivers as they seek to comply with the FMCSA ELD rule. Employing technology like Gorilla Safety's mobile app with built-in ELD technology helps to ensure that commercial truck drivers are in compliance with respect to hours of service regulations, Gorilla Safety contended, and availability in Spanish provides greater ease of use, flexibility and easier compliance and adoption for fleets of all sizes.
Gorilla Safety's ELD device works as a stand-alone solution or in sync with its mobile app that provides a suite of fleet safety and management services "to appropriately and accurately maintain logbook records and easily track and store driver hours of service right inside the smartphone," according to the company. The software is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones and tablets and also features a web-based dashboard.
"Bringing the marketplace an innovative, cloud-based, and simple-to-use ELD solution like ours that is now also available in a Spanish version only affords fleets an even greater opportunity for achieving compliance, especially as the FMCSA deadline inches closer and closer," said Mark Walton, Gorilla Safety co-founder and CEO. "Gorilla Safety offers many ways for fleets, brokers, vendors and transportation companies to get ahead in the marketplace with our seamless and simple ELD solution, which, by offering it in Spanish, will allow fleets to not only make even easier transitions to compliance but also attract more drivers."
