10 REASONS
TO MAKE EROAD YOUR TECHNOLOGY PARTNER

1.
Improve visibility with accurate fleet tracking

Make your business safer and improve job scheduling and productivity by optimising your fleet’s visibility. EROAD’s best-in-class fleet tracking system displays real-time vehicle information on digital maps, providing data you can trust.

The ability to see your vehicles’ location helps you provide a safe workplace, while your customers will be confident that you can verify time on site.

  • Daily Activity report displays vehicle activity over 24-hour period
  • Geofence Activity Dashboard shows you each vehicle’s average time on site, and helps identify potential problem areas
  • Retrospective Activity geofence lets you quickly check in on past vehicle activity in any location
  • Stop watch geofence lets you set time limits for geofences and monitor time-on-site targets

reason 1

"We’re a rural-based operation so many of our drivers are in remote locations most days.
With the EROAD system we can now keep track of them wherever they are and know they’re safe."

Peter Fiddes, Managing Director
Amuri Transport

2.
Simplify health and safety compliance

Simplify health and safety compliance with EROAD’s innovative technology and actionable insights and help your business minimise risk, improve safety outcomes and reduce costs.

An unsafe workplace can affect your ORS safety rating, ACC and insurance premiums, and driver retention, and introduce costs around penalties, downtime and lost business. Our tools and reports have been developed in consultation with our customers to help simplify compliance.

  • EROAD Share provides visibility of sub-contractor fleets
  • EROAD Electronic Logbook supports fatigue management and compliance with work and rest time requirements
  • Driver safety reporting encourages improved performance
  • Service module ensures your fleet is healthy, well-maintained and safe.

"With the health and safety reforms, Waitomo is now using EROAD’s Electronic Logbook, Driver Vehicle Inspection Checklist and Service module to help us make sure everything is ship shape. It’s part of our company’s philosophy of going paperless."

Leanne Milligan, Chief Financial Officer
Waitomo Group

3.
Promote better, safer driving

Boost your bottom line and your competitive edge by encouraging and rewarding improved driving.

A high standard of driving across your fleet doesn’t just protect your business’s reputation, it also protects your ORS rating and helps reduce ACC and insurance premiums.

  • Over Speed Dashboard shows speeding events and trends at vehicle, driver and fleet level
  • Virtual Speed Camera allows you to set safe operating speeds for high-risk areas such as schools, black spots or customer/supplier sites
  • Leaderboard benchmarks drivers based on key metrics: speeding, harsh braking, sharp acceleration and cornering Drive Buddy provides in-cab driver feedback Driver Insight report generates individual feedback on driver performance
  • Idle report helps reduce vehicle wear and tear and fuel costs.

reason 2

"I can see Leaderboard reports at any time of day, any day of the year, on my phone. It’s a great innovation. It makes my job much easier, being able to keep on top of what’s happening in the fleet remotely. It’s providing me with all the information I need for compliance, health and safety and training."

Blair Inglis, Fleet Compliance Manager
Foodstuffs North Island

4.
Work smarter together

Support health and safety compliance, simplify dispatch and job management, and improve your customer service by sharing information securely and efficiently across your business and supply chain.

Share real-time and historical vehicle activity across your own fleet, partner and sub-contractor fleets, to coordinate resources, monitor driver behaviour, and improve fleet management.

  • EROAD Share allows you to share information securely with your partner companies
  • EZmessage enables secure two-way messaging with your drivers
  • Partner Gateway provides integration with best-in-class partners.

"We now have the same level of visibility across our owner driver fleet as we do of our company fleet and can now better manage all their compliance. We thought we were good and now, with EROAD Share across the fleet, we know we are good."

Barry Raymond, CEO
StraitNZ Linehaul Limited

5.
Make data-driven decisions

Take the guesswork out of your business decisions and reinforce your competitive edge with EROAD’s advanced reporting.

EROAD’s system takes the wealth of data your fleet generates every day and turns it into easy-to-understand reports and dashboards that provide actionable insights for your business. With EROAD you’ll benefit from improved fleet productivity, better route planning, greater customer satisfaction, timely maintenance, ability to monitor stop/idle times and driver hours and improved legal compliance.

  • Allocate resources, better manage dispatch and job scheduling and right-size your fleet
  • Reduce fuel use and repair costs through better route planning
  • Identify trends and exceptions and monitor driver behaviour over time.

"We started using EROAD as we needed a more modern management tool. With EROAD’s system, you’re dealing with facts, as opposed to emotion."

Jim Shankie, Fleet Manager
Isaac Construction

6.
Maintain a healthy fleet

Maintaining up-to-date vehicle servicing and certification is a key requirement of health and safety compliance. The EROAD Service module helps you ensure the safety of your fleet, streamlining servicing certification and notifying you when servicing’s due, based on engine hours, distance or time since last service.

Reduce operating costs by proactively managing vehicle certification, servicing and maintenance, and lower the risk of penalties and vehicle downtime. Your full service history is archived in Depot, eliminating the need to keep paper records. Our Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR) reduce the risk of breakdowns, with an easy-to-use mobile app that guides drivers through inspections and lets them share the report with the click of a button.

reason 6

"The service management system is brilliant. I have full visibility on maintenance costs and service scheduling, and my records are automatically archived."

Luke Lee 
PCL Limited

7.
Ditch the hubo

EROAD’s electronic distance recorders are the key to unleashing the comprehensive benefits available from our advanced technology platform.

Vehicle downtime for hubodometer replacements is a significant business interruption.

Hubodometers have annual failure rates of 100% because they are rigidly mounted on an axle with the tyre being the only protection from road shocks. Hubodometers can increase distance recorded by upwards of 7% because of tyre wear and in excess of 10% from faulty operation. Our electronic distance recorders overcome these problems and are approved by NZ Transport Agency as replacements for mechanical hubodometers. Their electronic display also means paper RUC labels are no longer needed. We offer a range of electronic distance recorders:

  • Ehubo1: Our core hardware device, competitively priced, will meet the needs of most operators
  • Ehubo2: Access multiple applications on a single device, including ERUC, Drive Buddy in-cab feedback, EZfuel and EZmessage
  • Tubo: The distance recorder of choice for trailers.

reason 7

"Seven times out of ten when you have a wheel change, the hubodometer gets knocked out. That’s all downtime for me and my vehicles. EROAD’s made my business more cost effective and more manageable."

Robbie Allen 
Robbie's Linehaul

8.
Go paperless for easier RUC management

EROAD’s electronic system makes buying and managing RUC easier. Purchase your RUC licences where and when you need them, through our NZ Transport Agency-approved, secure, bank-grade payment system. Your licences are automatically delivered to your EROAD in-vehicle device for display as approved RUC licences — no paper labels required.

EROAD’s fully paperless electronic RUC system gives you back the time you spend on RUC administration, and removes the risk of accidental non-compliance. Our AutoRUC feature allows you to automatically purchase RUC in legally minimum amounts — so you can keep cash in the bank rather than on the windscreen. Your new licence is automatically purchased just before your current one expires, ensuring you’re always compliant.

reason 8

"Off-road claims are a big deal when you’re in forestry and EROAD has made the whole process simpler. We use AutoRUC so we know our trucks are compliant when they’re away from the base – it’s one of those things that you set and forget."

Jason Williams, Operations Manager 
Williams & Wilshier Ltd

9.
Increase your off-road refunds

Claim back your off-road travel and improve the accuracy and frequency of your claims with our automated system.

EROAD’s mapping engine automatically captures vehicle locations and accurately determines off-road travel based on public road map data. You can also add your own off-road areas by creating geofences for locations such as depots and container terminals.

  • When a RUC licence expires, off-road travel is automatically calculated and the RUCOR (off-road refund claim form) generated
  • Submit your claim electronically to NZ Transport Agency, at no extra charge
  • Off-road reports are archived in our web application, Depot, to support legal compliance.

reason 9

"I just processed 160 pages of RUCORs in six minutes. The old way of verifying then printing 160 pages would have taken me at least three hours. Now it’s just a click of a button and they’re submitted."

Annalese McNair, Workshop Admin Supervisor 
Hall’s Group Ltd

10.
Save on fuel

Reduce one of your largest operating expenses by proactively managing fuel consumption. EROAD’s EZfuel module simplifies fuel management, allowing you to compare fuel records against vehicle distance and location information, and identify trends and exceptions across your fleet.

Our suite of reports, Fuel Efficiency, Fuel Usage and Fuel Exception, provide detailed insights into fuel consumption by vehicle, driver and fleet.

reason 10

"I use the daily activity and fuel exception reports to ensure nothing looks out of the ordinary."

Gordon Jolly, Health, Safety & Environmental Manager 
MWN Civil Limited, Auckland

SEE WHY OUR CUSTOMERS LOVE EROAD

The University of Canterbury

"In the first month of using EROAD we received 7000 over speed alerts. We now see fewer than 150 a week.

As a result, I’ve seen my fuel cost drop by up to $3,000 per month, with increased utilisation and kilometres travelled by the fleet."

Ken McEwen
The University of Canterbury

McConnell Dowell

"EROAD has so far brought down our over speed events from approximately 25,000 a month to about 1200.

It’s reduced our overall fuel bill by approximately 20% and accident incident rates by 20%."

Simon Batchelor

Northland Regional Council

“We work for the community and we have to give them the best value for their dollar. Staff used to book vehicles out for a whole day instead of just the time they needed them. Now we’re using EROAD U Book-It, once a vehicle is returned to the council carpark, it checks itself in and is made available in the pool. Each booking gets coded to a costcentre, which helps us charge back kilometres travelled to the right department.

Tony Bird
Northland Regional Council
