RUNNING LOW ON HOURS?
Blue Tree is the only ELD system with a HOS Advisor baked into the product – it updates constantly providing the driver with all options available to him to maximize his driving hours based on his current working day/cycle. No need for the driver to try and figure it out in his head – it is written on screen at all times. How many drivers can figure out the sleep berth provision? Answer: Every one of them with our software. this information is available to the dispatcher as well – they both see the same advice.
EASY TO USE, QUICK TO LEARN
Start a stopwatch and see how long it takes your driver to say “OK, I got it already!” – it will be five minutes or less. Drivers love the software’s modern and familiar look and feel that makes it so intuitive and easy to use. It is designed to operate like all the other mobile apps they love to use on a daily basis; that is the “secret sauce”. The system uses voice prompts and on-screen colour coding to alert them when they are running low on hours.
NO HASSLE ROADSIDE INSPECTIONS
Get your drivers back on the road again quick. Roadside inspections are made easy and stress free with our ELD application. Inspectors love the easy to use and familiar interface allowing them to get to the data they need and verify it quickly. If required by the enforcement officer, the driver can also share their up-to-date logbook information by email or by fax – all at the touch of a button.
LET DRIVERS CORRECT THEIR LOGS
Don’t stress your drivers by forcing them to call into your busy safety department and wait for a correction to their logs just because they forgot to put themselves off duty or forgot to make a simple update on their logs. Our software allows drivers to quickly, easily, and legally, edit their non-drive duty logs to correct their mistakes. After they complete their edits their available hours are immediately updated and they are ready to hit the road. Of course, all edits are immediately uploaded to our servers so they are available to your dispatchers and compliance teams.
ELECTRONIC PRE AND POST TRIP DVIR
With our software, drivers get on the road quicker and safer every day with our unique Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting (DVIR) app. All previous ‘open’ defects that have been reported for the vehicle are immediately available to the driver for truck or trailer – this means a much safer fleet as your drivers get the benefit of seeing what other drivers/service personnel detected as ‘open’ defects with the vehicle and they can adjust their driving accordingly. Drivers can complete daily pre-trip and post-trip inspections on their in-cab device, phone or tablet – whichever is the most convenient for them and the company.
ALWAYS IN SYNC WITH THE DRIVER
At any time, dispatchers and compliance people can see what is happening with every driver and vehicle. With the data live, the dispatcher is always in sync with driver and leads to a great partnership. Color coded data reminds the dispatcher when his drivers are nearing their breaks or are in violation.
LIVE STATUS & DETAILED INFO
Compliance managers and dispatchers prefer Blue Tree’s cloud-based management software for its intuitive, powerful reporting tools. Through FleetManager.com, users get to the HOS data they need quickly and easily, through a simpler user interface, overall system speed, customization, advanced search and personalization. Amber and Red highlighting draws their focus to anything that needs immediate attention, while the powerful reporting engine enables them to specify what information they are interested in and how and when it comes to them.Users can fully customize their workspaces and design their own personalized layout so the critical information is always in front of them.
ELIMINATE THE ISSUE OF “MISSING MILES”
‘Missing miles’ are miles driven with no driver association. These are the first thing the DOT look for – and the hardest thing for a compliance manager to deal with. With Blue Tree’s ELD, hassles with ‘Missing Miles’ are a thing of the past. Drivers logs are recorded by the BT500 vehicle gateway and uploaded to the server in real time. The BT500 is installed under the dash and connected to the engine ECM. If a driver drives the vehicle while not logged in, then the driving is still being recorded on the BT500. Once a driver logs back into the vehicle, they are automatically presented with the miles recorded while they were not logged in and it asks them to claim the miles. There is no cheating the system; all miles are recorded. This feature greatly reduces the work for compliance/safety managers as they no longer have to waste hours re-creating logs associated with ‘missing miles’.
SIMPLE LOG EDITING
Safety and compliance managers can easily see, edit and add remarks to duty logs. All edits immediately update the drivers logs and status in the cab or on their smartphone/tablet. With highlighting of modified entries, the original data is retained providing a full audit trail and maintaining full compliance.

REEFER MONITORING IN THE CAB
Only Blue Tree offers the driver a real time view of the status of the trailer reefer unit while the driver is on the move. Our Reefer Unit Monitoring app can be run on our ELD or on a driver phone and provides real-time view of reefer settings, temperatures and immediate notification to the driver if a problem occurs. Why wait for the driver to take a break or reach their destination only to find the reefer has malfunctioned hours earlier and they did not know it. Of course our system also provides real-time data and immediate notifications to the office staff, but making the data available to the driver means that it is an extra pair of eyes watching over the load and it is more likely the problem will be detected and managed quickly.
AUTOMATE IFTA COMPLIANCE
Simplify the reporting of fuel use by carriers that operate cross-border and comply with IFTA – the agreement between US states and Canadian provinces to simplify the reporting of fuel use by carriers that operate in more than one jurisdiction. Our IFTA software automates compliance and reduces administration workload and the likelihood of breaches and related fines, with tax calculations that are automatic, precise and exportable on request if an audit occurs.Learn more
