Are you ready for the federal ELD mandate to go into effect? If you’re seeking a cost effective way to be in compliance, HELP Inc., the provider of the PrePass weigh station bypass and electronic toll payment services, has you in mind. Next month, HELP Inc. will officially release PrePass ELD, a streamlined, simple solution to comply with the new federal mandate.

Designed for fleets of any size, PrePass ELD records hours-of-service, using only the data required by law. The PrePass ELD is a bring-your-own device (BYOD) app available in both Android and iOS formats and takes seconds to install. Users will be able to download the application and plug an OBD device into the truck’s diagnostic port, and PrePass ELD will begin recording truck movement and driver hours. PrePass ELD also includes web-based reporting through a convenient cloud-based, central management portal.

As part of the PrePass family of services, PrePass ELD includes the same high standards for data privacy and customer support that has made PrePass one of the most trusted safety technology providers in the industry for the past 24 years.

The cost of the stand-alone PrePass ELD app per license is $14.99 per month and $12.99 per month when added to the PrePass weigh station bypass service. However, customers do not need to subscribe to other PrePass services to use the ELD. It’s available to anyone looking for an affordable ELD without the costs and complexities of extra bells and whistles.

Karen Rasmussen, HELP Inc. President and CEO, says the PrePass ELD is designed to be convenient and as unobtrusive as possible. “This ELD is a cost effective solution for trucking operations looking for an easy way to comply with the ELD mandate,” said Rasmussen. “And customers using PrePass ELD can be assured they are getting a high-quality service from a trusted name that’s been in trucking for more than two decades.”

Stay tuned for official release information in November.
