Announcing OneView’s Digital Library Solution

We’re proud to announce Digital Library as the latest OneView solution that enables easier and faster communication between home offices, drivers, and other field workers.

Pedigree Technologies Announces Addition of Digital Library to Award-Winning IoT Platform - OneView

Digital Library Rounds Out IoT Enterprise Solution Set and Streamlines Document Management for Drivers and Fleets

MAY 12, 2021

FARGO, N.D. / PR Newswire / MAY 12, 2021

Pedigree Technologies LLC is proud to offer Digital Library as the newest tool to easily store and manage the digital distribution of documents, images, and other relevant files that may be critical to operations. Each DOT or field inspection requires the production of official documents, and if not available in sufficient time, that’s time lost and potential fines owed. Digital Library solves all of that and more. Everything a driver and fleet manager needs is right there, available with one login. Customers in oilfield, heavy construction, and transportation industries consider OneView’s Digital Library an easily searchable ‘digital binder’ for providing quick access to wellsite authorizations, emergency declaration documents, or oversize/overweight permits.

“When our customers expressed this need, we decided this would be a no-brainer,” Josh DeCock, VP of Product Management said. “With OneView as the main office interface (or platform) and POV as the driver app, the Digital Library makes documentation sharing easy and highly organized. Drivers have access to the files they need when they need them, directly on their ELD device, such as permits, license, medical cards, and other important documents.”

Digital Library is one of the newest additions to an already robust set of solutions built on the OneView platform. With Pedigree Technologies OneView®, drivers and fleet operators can rest easy knowing that not only is their ELD compliant with the FMCSA, but the reliability, functionality, usability are beyond measure.

The company is committed to superior customer focus, driving innovation and services that Pedigree customers realize first-hand. Pedigree’s enterprise solutions, on the award-winning OneView platform, are built for growth, intuitiveness, and reliability.

Canadian ELD Mandate: Top 5 Reasons ELD Solutions Won’t Work in Canada

Canada’s electronic logging device (ELD) mandate is effective for all federally regulated carriers starting on the June 12, 2021 deadline. The Canadian mandate closely follows the U.S. rules and operability requirements, but each mandate has unique variations that drivers and carriers across both countries must be aware of to remain productive and profitable.

No Worries, We’ve Got You Covered:
Pedigree Technologies’ OneView is preparing to have our ELD system ready and fully compliant for the Canadian ELD mandate starting on June, 12, 2021.

5 Reasons Your ELD Won't Work in Canada Blog wide photo 2

Here are 5 notable differences in Canada’s regulations that might not be familiar with yet:

1) Your Solution May Not be Certified

FMCSA regulations require ELD providers to self-certify their solution but Canada requires third-party certification. This means ELD providers must not only invest in changes to meet these new requirements but also pay an expensive fee ($50,000+) to an independent certification facility for each hardware variant. See section 79, Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations.

2) ELD Data Transfers are Different

Canadian regulations require carriers to send detailed log reports in PDF format and for a longer period of time (14 days vs. 8 days in the US). And at inspection, drivers will transfer logs directly to officers not to a centralized database (i.e., U.S. eRODs system). See sections 4.3.2.4 and 4.8.2.1, CCMTA Technical Std.

3) Limited Personal Use and Deferred Off-Duty

The Canadian ELD mandate will require suppliers to measure 75 km (~47Mi.) of personal conveyance within 24 hours, compared to the U.S. who does not have any time or distance restrictions. If a driver exceeds 75 km within 24 hours, their status will automatically change from “Personal Conveyance” to “Driving.” In addition, the Canadian regulations allow drivers to defer off-duty time to the following day. See Amendment 3, Regulations Amending the Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations and sections 4.3.2.2.2 and 4.3.2.2.3, CCMTA Technical Std.

4) Malfunction Records Must Be Kept

Both country’s regulations require a visual indicator for drivers, for instance, if the ELD system malfunctions or there’s an unidentified driver.

In the FMCSA’s regulations, 4.6.2 ‘ELD Malfunction Status Indicator’ and 4.6.2.1 ‘Visual Malfunction Indicator’ state that there must be some clear and recognizable way to communicate malfunctions to the driver. Further,  4.1.5 (b) 1 under ‘Non-Authenticated Operation’ dictates that there must be “a visual or visual and audible warning” telling any unidentified driver/operator not currently logged in that they must log in. In Canada, however, the carrier must keep records of malfunctions which is not a U.S. requirement. See section 78 (paragraph 6) of “Amendments, Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations”.

5) Drivers Must Be Warned

ELD must be capable of notifying the driver at least 30 minutes in advance of reaching any duty-/driving-hour limitation. See section 4.6.4, CCMTA Technical Std.
