About Switchboard

Switchboard is a cloud-based transportation management solution that helps trucking businesses streamline fleet and logistics operations. The platform enables users to maintain service logs with drivers’ working hours and change duty status to on-duty, driving, sleeper berth, or off-duty.

Switchboard allows organizations to manage digital records of pre and post-trip vehicle inspections in compliance with FMCSA, DOT, and NSC regulations. Users can create personalized profiles for drivers and view odometer readings, event histories, and the ongoing activity status of vehicles on the centralized platform. Managers can also receive automatic email notifications related to speeding or hours of service (HOS) violations and generate performance reports.

Switchboard enables enterprises to monitor the entry/exit time of vehicles through geofencing capabilities as well as create mileage reports to calculate fuel taxes according to the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) regulations. Users can also send messages to drivers, improving communications across dispatch operations. Switchboard helps businesses track assets with real-time traffic layers and historical breadcrumb positioning.

It was easy to install, my driver's didn't have a hard time getting used to using it. The cost per month is extremely nice. We would recommend to anyone looking for ELD's. The time it takes to get a replacement item is one of the drawbacks since it ships from Canada.

Pros

Monthly cost, east of installation. The videos were informative and it had all the features we were looking for in an ELD.

Cons

I can't ping my equipment when I need an update.

I always was searching for pens, rulers, and glasses. No longer have to do that, and as also the administrator, I can correct my own mistakes and others.

Pros

The driver taps driver, then one of 4 "buttons" to change duty status.

Cons

It puts the driver in On Duty not driving if they forget to tap off duty. But I think that's the law.

It's OK

Reviewed on 2020/02/16

Pros

It is quite easy to use and for the most art fits the needs of my specific use case. Canadian company/supplier. Good potential. Good pricing.

Cons

Can be quite buggy at times. Potential but advancement seems slow.

We use the software everyday. It does everything we need it to. Almost to the point that we take it for granted just how well it works. And the support is what you would hope every companies support would be. Very very good.

Pros

When it came to having to purchase electronic log for my trucks, I found Switchboard to be the most competitively priced. Not knowing what to expect,it turned out to be better than I thought it would be. Especially being so reasonably priced.

Cons

Since which board is the only electronic log we have used. I don't have anything to compare it too. So I don't really have any cons.
