LISLE, Ill. – June 7, 2018 – PRLog — VisTracks is pleased to announce an integration between the VisTracks ELD andKronos (https://www.kronos.com), the market leading employee Time and Attendance system. The integration enables drivers to clock-in and out using Kronos and automatically transfer the timestamps into ELD OnDuty and OffDuty events, ensuring that drivers have 100% accurate logs. Using web services, the transfers are seamless, real-time, and automatic. The system is built using an AWS-based engine that polls the Kronos APIs to gather real-time clock events and passes the events to the VisTracks ELD AWS-based back-office. Then, when the driver logs onto the VisTracks ELD, these events are automatically transferred to the mobile device running the VisTracks software providing accurate logs.
Chandana Kumar, VisTracks Product Manager, says “Using the integration a Driver may clock-in with Kronos, work for a while on the dock, and log onto the ELD to start his day. The integration provides the exact OnDuty timestamp for the Driver’s first ELD event, ensuring that the driver has an accurate log, and protecting the Motor Carrier from inaccurate time records in the event of a DOT audit.”
