All about KeepTruckin ELD Provider
Many observers agree that KeepTruckin ELD is the best hardware solution on the market. Its upfront hardware price is $150 while two monthly fees are $20 and $35 per truck. The pricing seems to be average in comparison with the closest competitors. A corresponding mobile application (for both Android and iOS) allows using KeepTruckin ELD in connection with either smartphones or tablets.
Both drivers and observers consider the solution very reliable and user-friendly. The installation process takes a few minutes only: all you need to do is to connect the device to a vehicle and sync it with your mobile gadget. It can be done via either USB or Bluetooth.
The device is supplemented by a full-service package by the provider. Both customer support and training videos are available to help users start operation and keep the system meeting the most up-to-date regulation requirements. The customer support team is available 24/7 for free (to be precise, the service is included in monthly plans). In addition to the very ELD hardware, 6-pin/9-pin cables, an instruction manual, and a DOT card are supplied as a package.
Only two subscription plans are offered: Starter and Pro. The first one ($20/month) includes basic options such as logs, inspection reports, messaging, GPS tracking, and some fleet management features. The more advanced Pro plan ($35/month) is added with fuel optimization, technical diagnostics, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Besides, the Pro subscription provides you with by-default cellular data connectivity.
Some features are recognized by users as drawbacks of the solution, however. Supposedly, the device can decrease the driver’s revenue since it places certain restrictions on the so-called “favorite driving hours” of many drivers. Besides, no international integration is available. In addition, no real-time corrections of logs are possible: it can be done only the next day.
Nonetheless, attractive price, intuitive usability, and reliable operation makes KeepTruckin ELD one of the top leaders on the market.
