BSM Technologies adds Hours-of-Service capability to its Sentinel fleet management system.

 Toronto ON – BSM Technologies Inc. (“BSM” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: GPS), a leading provider of remote monitoring, fleet management, fleet diagnostics and automated vehicle security systems, today announced the addition of an Hours-of-Service (HOS) module to its popular Sentinel fleet management solution.

 Using an electronic on-board recorder (EOBR), the Hours-of-Service module delivers the following key benefits:

  • Eliminates paper log-books, saving at least ten minutes a day per driver
  • Automates reporting under the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA)
  • Notifies drivers and fleet managers when the designated working hours are exceeded
  • Performs safety checks, including pre and post trip inspections

 “Hours-of-Service is an increasingly important issue in multiple verticals and is becoming the focus of proposed legislation in both the United States and Canada,” said Aly Rahemtulla, President and CEO. “Our Hours-of-Service solution enables fleet managers to maintain compliance while improving their operational efficiency and driver safety.”

 BSM’s Hours-of-Service module is designed to run in tandem with its Sentinel fleet management system. Sentinel captures real-time location information and telemetry data, delivering feedback to fleet managers and drivers. This includes in-cab visual alerts for speeding, harsh acceleration and harsh braking, trip reporting, fuel management, preventative maintenance, asset utilization, emergency satellite communications, crash detection and data capture for accident reconstruction.

 To provide the best solution for its customers, BSM acquired proven electronic on-board recorder technology to integrate and optimize into its proprietary fleet management software.

 “Since BSM has the unique ability to control the hardware and software in our systems on an end-to-end basis, we were able to design a stable and reliable product,” stated Alban Hoxha, BSM’s Chief Technical Officer. “We believe it is the most comprehensive offering that can be customized to meet a broad range of fleets.”

 Our Hours-of Service module is the result of the demand we could see for a fully integrated solution from our partners and customers,” added Aly Rahemtulla. “It will be available in early November on new installs of Sentinel systems and can easily be added to existing ones. This offering will allow us to continue to grow our business with existing customers and enhance our partner relationships.”
