EROAD‘s new Logbook takes the burden out of fatigue management

2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineJuly 3, 2020

Transport technology company EROAD has launched a new app and cloud-based administrative platform that reduces the administrative time of managing driver compliance and makes it easier for commercial drivers to comply with logbook rules and regulations.

Called EROAD Day Logbook, the app supports drivers to keep on top of their work or rest hours through either an Android or iOS device. Record keeping is simplified through investigative tools that examine the driver’s workday, providing accurate records that aid workflows and driver coaching. 

Steven Newman, CEO of EROAD says: “We designed EROAD Day Logbook with the driver in mind because we wanted to make it really easy for them to use. Only a few clicks or swipes are needed for proactive time management, and this is supported by automated alerts.”

The EROAD Day Logbook is NZTA approved and boasts numerous key features. Users can easily access the system via a secure authenticated login, and when logged in they can intuitively capture work and rest hours. Proactive alerts and traffic light indicators make complying with the logbook rules and regulations easy. The user can also display and email logbook data to support roadside inspections as required.

Steven Newman, CEO of EROAD, says EROAD Day Logbook was designed to make the driver‘s life easier.

Furthermore, the app assists the driver to remain on top of their responsibility for health and safety compliance, with a seamless link to EROAD Inspect. 

In recognition that fatigue management is more than just counting hours, EROAD has also launched the EROAD Pit-Stop. Staffed by St John, this will tour selected truck stops and depots, providing free and confidential mini-health checks to drivers.
