The use of electronic on-board recorders (EOBRs) has grown significantly in the past few years. They have proven to be very effective tools for hours of service (HOS) compliance management. Carriers using EOBRs have realized superior ratings for HOS compliance in the Compliance Safety Accountability (CSA) program’s safety measure system. There are, however, some naysayers and skeptics that based on misperceptions have argued against the use of EOBRs. The actual experience of the industry, though, suggests that these are just “EOBR myths” and looking at EOBR related facts and industry’s experience (outlined below) clearly demonstrate the usefulness of these systems.
What’s important to a carrier that is operating a small business on a tight budget, looking for business growth, surrounded by regulations and high costs?

I recently had the privilege of speaking with a number of Marten Transport’s employees to talk about their success with our In-Cab Scanning application. Below is a quick snapshot of how Qualcomm’s In-Cab Scanning helped Marten improve driver productivity and substantially reduce billing cycles.
A key component of Qualcomm's Mobile Computing Platforms (MCPs) is our in-motion user interface (IMUI). Our IMUI is a Qualcomm-standard feature, but it is unique in the industry. Using Qualcomm's advanced technology, our IMUI has changed how information is presented to drivers and won over many previously skeptical fleet managers and owners. So why should you care about IMUI?
