Leverage the flexibility of the Eleos platform to create your own custom driver app.
Eleos custom driver apps help make fleets more productive and profitable. Drivers are more relaxed and happier in their jobs, back-office staff have more control over their business, and jobs get done more efficiently. Here are a few ways the Eleos platform makes a difference for our customers.
Increases drive time
Deploying a custom driver app will allow your drivers to work from anywhere – on any device – in or out of the cab. With crucial information available at their fingertips, they can plan their trips, scan and submit documents, easily communicate with HQ, and keep moving rather than spending time looking for information or waiting for answers.
Eliminates costly mistakes
A well-guided trip plan gives you – and your drivers – the peace of mind that their trip will be more successful and with less incidents. With customizable navigation tools available in your personalized driver app you can easily design your driver’s route to meet your internal safety guidelines, as well as the unique needs of each of your customers. Your drivers will avoid obstacles on the road and arrive at the right place, at the right time, via safe and legal routes.
Increases driver confidence
Take some of the stress out of your driver’s day with a custom driver app. With an app built to your unique specifications, you’ll be able to push load information, company communications, paycheck details, customer instructions, and more directly to your drivers. No more calls to Dispatch or confusion about what they need to do to deliver their load. When drivers have the information they need to do their job more efficiently, stress levels decrease and profits grow.
Gives you control you can't get with other systems
Custom mobile driver apps can combine data from ELD, TMS, communications systems, and more into a unique digital experience that goes far beyond what is available through telematics applications alone. You’ll have the control to define what you need to run your business rather than relying on single-solution tools built for the masses.

Eleos custom driver app features, who they help, and how
Drivers can easily update their duty status without having to use a separate app, and can instantly see on the map where their hours of service will end—both when planning their route, and driving it.
Voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation with trucking attributes
No need for third-party navigation apps that aren't designed with truck-safe routes in mind. Eleos tells drivers exactly where to go without any dodgy routes.
Drivers who have to pick up vehicles from busy yards often have trouble finding their vehicles. With Eleos, dispatch or maintenance can load GPS coordinates with a satellite view of the tractor/trailer's current location, and drivers can use this to easily find their rides among all the others.
Predefine what happens when actions are performed offline. This can be customized based on customer, location, cargo type etc. Drivers keep going with business as usual, even without a mobile signal, and their actions are synced to your server once connectivity returns.
Drivers can easily see inclement weather along their route, so they can plan their routes accordingly, and don't get stuck without any Hours of Service.
Eliminate inaccurate GPS directions from systems that only know where the center of a depot is—not its entrance. Improve your data by crowd-sourcing new latitude & longitude data from a reliable source, your drivers. Drivers can correct navigation by entering the entrance location on a satellite view. Eleos will remember this and navigate to it with pin-point accuracy every time.
Intelligent locking to prevent distracted driving
Great as Eleos is, most of the time you don't want your drivers looking at it. With intelligent locking, safety is improved on the road, and accidents are less likely.
Eleos is a complete in-cab solution, but it works on any smartphone too. This means that drivers can use it wherever and whenever they want, without being tied to the tablet in their truck. This gives them freedom to use downtime efficiently, and spend less time in their cab when they aren't driving. They love this.
Visual workflow creator
Create custom workflows that match your own business needs. With a simple point-and-click interface you can set up unlimited workflows for any conceivable scenario, and painlessly edit them when necessary.
Unlimited customizable dashboards
Tailor the main view that your drivers see, and create different dashboards for different drivers and situations. You want new drivers to see a different view than experienced ones? You can do that. Should refrigerated loads have different options displayed than flat-beds? You can do that too. Any variable you want can be used to create a custom dashboard for a custom segment.
Simple menu builder
Just as you can create unlimited custom dashboards, you can also create custom navigation menus in the app, depending on what your drivers need to see.
With our APIs, you can pass important information back into your TMS programmatically, cutting down on admin work, and ensuring that nothing gets lost or missed.
Two-way real-time messaging with form/macro support
No more laborious manual data entry. Drivers and dispatch can chat in real time using a modern interface, and drivers can send entire batches of information about completed workflow steps with the tap of a button, instead of having to type everything out in multiple messages.
Guided exception reporting screens
Drivers can easily report issues with the load, truck, trailer, or an accident, thanks to customizable screens that ask the right questions and give the right options based on what has already been entered.
Site/job rating screens
Back office personnel can rate drivers and jobs, using their own internal review criteria. Drivers can then see a summary of this information to check how they did on a load, or what their performance is looking like overall.
High-quality document scanning
Drivers can send in their paperwork quickly and easily, right from their load workflow screen, complete with doc typing. This means less busy-work for the back office, contacting drivers and pestering them to send in their load documents.
Create customized forms where the inputs and flows change based on previous answers. This makes creating complex variable workflows very simple, and is extremely useful for things like COVID health screening forms.
Video library management with view-tracking & reporting
Upload and organize videos so drivers can easily access them on the go—whether it's training, instructions, or news. Keep track of who has watched what, so that you can spot gaps in training and follow up when necessary.
Text & video news feeds
Upload news to your Eleos system and share it with drivers through the app. You can send out simple text and image articles, and high-quality videos.
Collect information from drivers by building out to-dos for them. You can segment these down to any, all, or even just one driver. This makes previously painful back office admin incredibly easy—e.g., getting data on updated CDL/licenses, insurance paperwork, and the like.
Cut down admin on both ends. Drivers can access paystubs directly in the app, so they don't need printed slips. And because their duty status is always recorded in Eleos, your accounting team can use this to generate payroll without spending time following up with drivers.
The whole point is to give you a mobile driver app that conforms to your business. That means it works with your actual processes and tools, rather than whatever systems we assumed a trucking company would have. You can combine Eleos with any fleet management and ELD system, and you can create unlimited custom screens and workflows that always match your customers’ requirements and your company’s operational needs.
DIY app assembly using pre-built components
What you get with Eleos is a fully-customized driver app for your company, not an off-the-shelf one-size-fits-all mishmash. Not only do you have full control over what your drivers see, but you can assemble your app using pre-built components. We have an extensive collection of these, carefully developed to solve specific problems that fleets face. From trip planning to settlement, we’ve got you covered.
Quick & easy implementation
Any company with IT expertise can customize Eleos using the web-based app editor. This makes creating workflows and dashboards very quick and cost-effective. If you don’t have in-house IT, or you need more complex integrations, we have a team of integration experts who can build what you need—often in a matter of days.
Integrates seamlessly with other apps via OpenCab
OpenCab is a standard for trucking apps to talk to each other and share information. It allows solution providers to rapidly develop custom integrations without needing to reinvent the wheel for every app. It also gives fleets greater efficiency and vendor choice, and enables them to create a unified and superior in-cab experience for their drivers.
