Differences and Similarities between an ELD and IFTA Compliant Data Recording Systems
Buyers Beware! What you need to know before buying an Electronic Logging Device:
When approaching this conversion, the first question to ask is: Do I want a device that just meets the ELD requirement or do I want a device that can also accomplish other regulatory compliance requirements such as IFTA? If the answer is: I want a device that will meet both ELD and IFTA requirements, selecting the right device becomes critical!
Device functions and requirements for a compliant ELD and a compliant IFTA data recording device have some similarities but they are not the same! Not understanding the differences and selecting the wrong device can get you into a costly compliance nightmare.
Equally important to buying the right device is understanding how manage the device and data appropriately to accomplish regulatory compliance. A device may be 100% compliant for the requirements of the regulator but if you don’t have the internal controls to manage it correctly, like any tool, it won’t get the job done.
