Does Your E.L.D. Make Your Company Compliant?

By Marek Krasuski

As a young dynamic company specializing in the outsourcing of E.L.D. (Electronic Log Device) administration, CompliancyPlus E.L.D. Administrative Services is backed by a team of professionals highly experienced in trucking, E.L.D. software integration, and programming. This is why Operations Director, Grant Conrad, confidently draws attention to the unique services of this growing and robust organization.
CompliancyPlus is an outsourcing alternative for E.L.D. administration within the operations of transportation companies. Where it differs from many competitors is in reconciling driver logs with H.O.S. (Hours of Service) requirements recorded by E.L.D. activity reports. Drivers are obliged by law to log into E.L.D.’s to record their Record Of Duty Status (R.O.D.S.) or record them on a paper log at the beginning of each work day/shift. The E.L.D. is connected to the Electronic Control Module (E.C.M.) and records everything the vehicle does during the course of the day, including the driver’s H.O.S. When a driver fails to record his/her workday on an E.L.D. or on a Paper Log, the Administrator, who is typically employed by Carriers, has to find out who was operating the vehicle by reconciling the Company records and vehicle events recorded by the E.L.D. Precious time and resources are wasted in the search for company records to reconcile this information, and then assign it to the driver responsible for not logging his/her own hours.

Factoring – More than Math

Factoring is more than a math term. It’s a solution to one of business’s most common problems: cash flow. So, whether your business needs working capital to expand or to cover operating costs, factoring can help your business reach its goals.
What Is Factoring?
Factoring is when your business sells its invoices to a third party for a discounted rate. The third party then assumes all liability of non-payment. This means that you’re not liable if you don’t get paid, the lender is responsible. Rather than wait for weeks, or even months for slow paying customers you can obtain working capital by selling your invoices to J D Factors at an agreed upon rate.
Factoring gives your business predictable income and a steady flow of working capital, making it easier to invest in growing your business.
J D Factors provides non-recourse factoring. That means that if an invoice is not paid for credit reasons then you are not liable. JD Factors assumes the risk.
