The GroundCloud platform is going to get a whole lot better SOON! 

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our very own integrated payroll system coming early next year! GroundCloud has partnered with Gusto, a reputable payroll tech solution provider, which has enabled us to make the CSP management platform a truly one-stop-portal for delivery businesses! The new payroll system will allow our customers to not only prepare data for payroll (as is the case right now) but to do the actual payroll too. No need to use a separate payroll provider or waste time exporting drivers’ timecards and compensation into a separate system time after time anymore!

With the new GroundCloud Payroll, you will:

  • Save time + money 
  • Run payroll in minutes
  • Get everything you need in one place
  • A better product at a better price

Stay tuned for updates on the product release date!

Are you using the Subzones feature in our CSP management platform? If not, you should. Subzones allow you and your drivers to place customizable areas on the driver’s map to give them direction.

Subzones also inform drivers of anything they may need to know while on a route such as:

  • apartment and building numbers
  • gate codes
  • military bases
  • trailer parks
  • delivery notes
  • dock locations
  • road closures and “no-go zones”

To learn more about this important groundcloud.io feature and how it can help your team succeed, read this Knowledge Base article.

New App Release Feature! 📲 

Our newest iOS app release saves each driver’s settings! Starting with version 1.4.19, settings are saved based on driver profiles regardless of the device used. Drivers no longer need to spend time configuring the app settings each time they log into a different iPad and you can forget all about the frequent questions regarding app preferences. Sweet!

Nov 16

If you’re going to get 15+ VEDRs (4k or 360 models) from GroundCloud, you have a choice to pay for them in full upfront or pay zero upfront and make monthly payments of $10-12 (depending on the order) for three years. This is on top of the monthly service fee which in both cases remains $30/month per cam.

Contact our Sales team for more details and to make your purchase: sales@groundcloud.com or 218-864-7900 (option 1).

Vehicle Reminders added to Pro!

Vehicle Reminders are designed to help you stay on top of your fleet’s various maintenance and non-maintenance needs. This will enable you to use recurring reminders to generate preventative maintenance schedules for routine services and create one-time reminders for unscheduled maintenance or regular non-maintenance activities.

If you are a GroundCloud Pro user, you will see the new Vehicle Reminders page on your account under the Fleet Management section of the GroundCloud portal. A detailed walkthrough of this feature can be found in our knowledge base. It should be noted this new page operates separately from the legacy Maintenance Reminders page, although both will remain accessible.

Announcing the new GroundCloud MDM for all customers! 📱

The upgraded MDM (mobile device management) functions similarly to the current/legacy MDM. Tablets can be sent remote updates, locked down for driver use, and unlocked for manager use. 

The new GroundCloud MDM also comes with upgrades to several key features:

– Remote updates are faster and more reliable

– Remote screen sharing with GroundCloud Support

– Improved location services

– GroundCloud Lockscreen with device specific serial number and asset information

– Apps can be updated from the ME MDM app (a call to Support is no longer required every time an app needs an update)

The new GroundCloud MDM opens the door for even more features that will improve the connection between your GroundCloud account and tablets. 

Use this link for instructions on how to enroll your devices.

Also new to the updated MDM platform is Samsung Android Tablet support. If you have an Samsung Android tablet that has our GroundCloud logo on the home/lock screen, then you are already enrolled. 

If your tablets are not currently enrolled in GroundCloud MDM at all and you would like them to be managed in GroundCloud MDM, they will need to be sent to our offices to be added to the platform. Please contact GroundCloud Support at 218-864-7900 or support@groundcloud.com for more information.

Minimum app versions required: iOS 1.4.16 and Android 1.3.8

Hello GroundClouders!

🎉We are excited to announce that FedEx Ground has given official approval for GroundCloud Permanent 4K VEDR for Schedule B vehicles/tractors!🎉

GroundCloud 4K VEDR:

  • Fast and easy to install – connect to ODB2 port and affix to windshield
  • Approved for all Schedule B vehicles/tractors
  • Incredible footage quality – captures details such as license plates, road signs, speed limits
  • High performance AI notifies contractors when drivers are distracted, holding a device, not wearing their seatbelt, etc
  • Includes a 128GB SD card that can hold 44 hours of footage (with ability to upgrade to a 512GB SD card that holds 176 hours)
  • Integrated driver-facing camera (drivers cannot easily point the camera away)
  • Low price of $399
  • Ability to view live feed from the device
  • KI Compliant 
  • NO CONTRACT!
  • Coming Soon: pulls odometer, vehicle speed, engine run status, engine fault codes and more from OBD2 port (P&D only)

Purchase a GroundCloud Permanent 4K VEDR HERE

Please Note: Unfortunately, we are not renting VEDR units this year. Numerous contractors last year inadvertently kept their rental units far longer than they intended and it left a sour taste in the mouth of many. For about the price of 3-4 month’s rental, you can purchase a GroundCloud 360 portable unit and then only use it when you need it. You can deactivate it when you don’t and then turn it back on next year or whenever there’s a need. You will also be able to sell your 360’s to others if you ever wanted to.

Purchase a GroundCloud Portable 360 VEDR for peak season HERE.

Referral Program! As you might have heard, our CEO/Founder Dave Leland announce at the Route Consultant Expo in Las Vegas last month, our new Customer Referrals Program is alive and available now! Introduce a fellow P&D or Line Haul contractor to GroundCloud and get a referral bonus. We do not limit the number of referrals — so refer away!

Happy Friday, GroundClouders!

We hope you had a great Labor Day! This week we have a look at a newly enhanced feature, a new setting for speed violations, and some important reminders to keep your fleet ready for peak.

GroundCloud Pro is live and ready to help contractors like you stay profitable! Over 700 service providers have already started utilizing the profit-boosting, time-saving, and all around amazing Pro features to optimize their operations – and you can too! Pro is available to all GroundCloud customers with ZERO billing until 2023!

To sign up for GroundCloud Pro, follow this link, where you’ll also find a full list of Pro features.

Plenty of Pro features to cover – this week, it’s the enhanced Driver Schedule! Manage driver shifts, time off, and route assignments all on one combined schedule. Copy a schedule from a previous week, or create your own from scratch. Schedules can be created weeks or months in advance, are visible to drivers from the Driver App, and integrate seamlessly with Timecards, Time-Off Requests, and route assignments. Toss out the old spreadsheets and learn more about how Pro can enhance your scheduling in this Knowledge Base article.

Having issues with inaccurate speed violations? If you’re operating in an area where speed limits have changed or mapping data is limited, some roads may default to 25mph speed limit. This can result in more speed violations shown on your Route Map. A new option has been added to the Settings page that allows you to ignore the 25mph speed limits which can be used to reduce the number of speed tags in these areas.

Important reminder about VEDR orders ahead of Peak season: Peak is right around the corner! If you plan to add trucks to your fleet to meet demand, it’s time to stock up on VEDR now! GroundCloud can no longer offer rental VEDR units for peak, so if you need additional units, place your order today in preparation for the expected volume increases.
