GORILLA SAFETY LAUNCHES SPECIAL PROGRAM TO RESCUE FLEETS LEFT ABANDONED BY ONE20’S UNEXPECTED EXIT FROM ELECTRONIC LOGGING DEVICE BUSINESS

Company Supports Trucking Industry with Free ELD Subscription through End of 2019 with Hardware Purchase to former ONE20 Users  

HOUSTON … May 31, 2018 … Gorilla Safety, provider of an innovative, proprietary and patented software solution that fully automates all aspects of fleet and safety management, announced today the introduction of a special program targeted toward fleets left abandoned by ONE20. ONE20, an Electronic Logging Device (ELD) provider, recently and unexpectedly announced it would cease operations and exit the market, effective June 18, 2018, leaving thousands of users in the lurch.

Gorilla Safety, which has been providing integrated, innovative fleet safety and management solutions and ELD services since 2016, is offering those who subscribed to ONE20’s F-ELD, a free ELD subscription through the end of 2019, with the purchase of the ELD hardware. Former F-ELD users simply need to provide proof of their F-ELD purchase, and Gorilla Safety’s Prime8 ELD service will be free to qualifying fleets and owner operators.

Gorilla Safety’s Prime8 ELD is a basic, full suite of services catering to independent owner-operators, which keeps fleets and drivers compliant on the road. The hardware is a simple plug-and-play system that takes just minutes to install into any truck. The award-winning Gorilla Safety software and app is easy to use, and provides driver logs, user lists and details, vehicle lists, accident details and investigation along with key notifications and alerts. It also includes GPS tracking and daily logs with up to six months of online storage.

In accordance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate, Gorilla Safety has on-boarded thousands of fleets and drivers, helping them easily and effectively comply with the new regulations. To this end, Gorilla Safety continually introduces and updates various features within its solution, leveraging powerful technology that proves advantageous in helping fleets remain compliant, retain drivers, reap efficiencies and keep drivers safe.

“The ELD business has become a crowded space with many providers –not all of which are reliable and sustainable — amid the changing fleet and safety landscape, one now dictated by the FMCSA’s ELD mandate. Gorilla Safety has on-boarded fleets of varying sizes and needs and offers the industry a range of special programs to keep fleets compliant. In the case of ONE20, Gorilla Safety decided to aid fleets impacted by that company’s decision to terminate support for its product through its latest free subscription offering that will take users through the end of next year. This will ensure their compliance, safety and ease of use when using our advanced tools,” said Mark Walton, co-founder and chief executive officer at Gorilla Safety.

“Trucking companies have undergone dramatic shifts as they transitioned through the implementation of ELD across their fleets. Gorilla Safety continues to support the trucking community, and believes this special promotion for ONE20 users is just another chance to stand by the industry and help fleets unfortunately impacted by unsustainable ELD providers who leave fleets and drivers in a bind. We are happy to be the standing firm, standing still organization the industry has come to rely upon,” Walton concluded.

The Prime8 solution is appropriate for most fleets, but former F-ELD users also have the option to upgrade to one of Gorilla Safety’s premium packages, if they choose, for an extra fee.

To take advantage of this special ELD subscription opportunity, former ONE20 F-ELD users should contact Gorilla Safety at 844-636-1360, email the company at info@gorillasafety.com or visit www.gorillasafety.com. Proof of original purchase from ONE20 is required to qualify for this special offer. Offer valid until December 31, 2018.
