BigRoad announced on Friday that their logging app is now available for iPhone, iPod and iPad platforms. Previously available only for Android users, BigRoad hopes this new release will achieve greater success with Apple users, and help make tracking life on the road simple and easy.
More than 75,000 drivers have downloaded the free app, and users give is 4.5 stars. In addition to computer-assisted logging, BigRoad’s tools include:
**Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR) for pre-trip and post-trip inspections
**U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and Canadian Ministry of Transportation (MTO) regulated rule sets
**A specific view mode for sharing with officers to streamline roadside inspections
**Location, photo and document sharing
**An application bar offering one-click access to the most used applications by truckers in the Android Play Store
The BigRoad app helps drivers create clean, inspectable and error-free logs. With a special review mode for roadside inspectors, the app is supported by U.S. and Canadian rule sets. Logs can be shared with dispatch by email or automatically by using BigRoad for Fleets. Drivers can plan ahead with clear availability times and take advantage of expectations like the U.S. split sleeper rule.
A Driver Vehicle Inspection Report can be created in just a few steps with the BigRoad app and supports multiple trailers and trucks. Drivers can find truck stops, truck washes, service & maintenance, fuel, and wi-fi with the live traffic map. They can also find truck specific routing, as well as abundant cost savings with photo, document and location sharing.
According to BigRoad CEO Kelly Frey, 76 percent of fleet managers rely on smartphones, and 64 percent of those managers stated that nearly all of their drivers carried smartphones in 2012.
Its owner/operator fleet version is available for $15 per user per month. It now includes International Fuel Tax Agreement functionality with state mile reporting in support of International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) filings as well as the following features:
- Fleet optimization account accessible through any computer with login
