PHOENIX, December 18, 2017 — HELP Inc. announces its PrePass ELD application is now available for iOS devices through Apple’s App store.
PrePass ELD was released in late November 2017 as a low-cost solution to the federal electronic logging device (ELD) mandate. PrePass ELD is registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and costs $14.99 per month per license. The price is reduced to $12.99 per month when bundled with the PrePass weigh station bypass service.
PrePass ELD monitors truck driver hours-of-service, recording only the data required by law. It operates as a bring-your-own device (BYOD) app in Android and iOS formats. The app takes seconds to install following a quick sign-up process – users first establish a PrePass Fleet Manager account and order OBD connector devices. After plugging the OBD device into the truck’s diagnostic port, drivers can download the app to any tablet or smartphone to begin recording truck movement and driver hours.
PrePass ELD also offers Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR), central web-based reporting and simple OBD wireless connection via Bluetooth.
HELP Inc., the non-profit provider of PrePass, the nation’s most complete truck weigh station bypass system, developed PrePass ELD to address requests from owner-operators and fleets for a simple and low-cost way to comply with the ELD requirement which took effect on December 18.
Customers do not have to subscribe to other PrePass services to use the ELD, but they will still benefit from the same award-winning customer service currently available to PrePass customers.
As an organization whose primary mission is safety, HELP Inc. reminds carriers and drivers that federal law requires all mobile devices used in a moving vehicle must be mounted or docked to prevent hand-held use and potential driving distractions.
