In-house Compliance Tools and Resources

North Star Fleet has tools and resources developed over the past 30 years which we have now made available to companies with in-house compliance departments. Why reinvent the wheel? Call us to find out how to put these tools and resources to work for you.

GPS Smart Audit

GPS is accurate and reliable, but it isn’t perfect.  You cannot rely solely on the distance by jurisdiction summary from your GPS vendor.  In the event of an audit, your auditor will ask you to produce ORIGINAL unedited GPS points.

Our GPS SmartAudit service will help you manage that data and we’ll also check it for gaps and errors.  How easy is that?

Option 1: We audit your GPS data for errors.  We provide to you an audited distance by jurisdiction report and also a gap report so you can insure ALL distance is accurately reported on your quarterly IFTA and mileage tax returns.

Option 2: Want to manage your own process?  We will license GPS SmartAudit to you as a client hosted service.

Here are just some of the benefits:

  • Confidence and reassurance that your GPS distance is correct according to both the IFTA and IRP requirements.
  • Ability to deal with GPS issues including gaps in data and false readings
  • Fuel stops report (if subscribed to OFTS / GPS SmartAudit Combo)
  • Original GPS data records stored according to IFTA / IRP requirements (vs. HOS regulations)
  • GPS data is downloaded and audited
  • And easy, streamlined way to deal with the thousands and thousands of GPS data points.
  • Can accept GPS from most systems:  (examples:  Telogis, Fleetmatics, Verizon/Networkfleet, PeopleNet, Omnitracs, Shaw, Geotab, Geotrac, GFI, etc.)
