BOCA RATON, Fla.—November 30, 2017 - MiX Telematics (NYSE: MIXT), a leading global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions, announced today that Integrated Risk Solutions – an expert in transportation risk management – has evaluated MiX’s Electronic Logging Device (ELD) solution, and believes that it meets all current FMCSA technical specifications for ELDs.
MIX’s ELD solution is already listed on the FMCSA list of registered ELD providers. But since vendors self certify for that list, MiX sought third-party validation that it meets the technical criteria that the FMCSA has published for ELDs – to give its customers every confidence that MiX solutions can help them comply with the ELD Mandate, for which the first deadlines are in December 2017.
“We evaluated MiX’s ELD software, hardware and services including support,” said John Seidl, Transportation Consultant at Integrated Risk Solutions and a nationally known DOT/FMCSA expert. “We believe they are well crafted to meet the current FMCSA ELD requirements, and MiX has designed its services and support offerings to ensure fleets are able to get the most value out of their ELD investments over the long term.”
Pete Allen, Executive Vice President at MiX Telematics, said, “Not all fleets understand that the FMCSA itself does not screen ELD providers – that its list consists of vendors who self certify that they meet FMCSA specs. Really, anyone can add themselves to that list. MiX provides high-end, full-featured telematics and ELD solutions that are proven to pay for themselves quickly by helping fleets significantly reduce costs, but they do require an up-front investment. The Integrated Risk Solutions verification should help give fleets extra confidence that MiX solutions function as expected and can help them comply with the ELD Mandate.”
