MiX Telematics announced an extension to its Hours of Service ELD solution – Time Entry.
“Time Entry is the result of MiX listening closely to the needs of its ELD customers who were looking for more effective driver-payroll management,” the company said in a news release.
Time Entry is designed to provide customers with a tool to extract more detailed activity data from the Hours of Service solution. According to the company, benefits include:
- Improved accuracy of payroll data
- Saving time with less paperwork
- Reducing fraudulent payroll claims
- Reducing payroll leakage
- Improving payroll business-process efficiency
“MiX recognizes that payroll-management accuracy and efficiency is a big challenge for transport carriers, especially on top of managing the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Hours of Service compliance requirements for their commercial drivers,” said Catherine Lewis, executive vice president of technology at MiX Telematics. “With the introduction of Time Entry, operations supervisors have a more detailed real-time view of what drivers are doing when they are not driving.
“For both the driver and operations manager, accuracy of DOT HOS data is key to enabling greater payroll efficiencies and for drivers to be paid accurately and on time. MiX looks forward to engaging our ELD customers and helping them with this addition to our world-class telematics solution.”
