Cummins has launched a new fleet software company called Zed Connect and announced its first product, Zed ELD- a smartphone based electronic logging solution.  Zed ELD is designed to be a simple and low-cost electronic logging device solution aimed at small and mid-sized fleets looking to meet the upcoming ELD mandate.  The plug-and-play solution includes such features as  ELD, visual inspection reporting, and commercial routing.  The Zed ELD was designed with input from drivers, fleet managers and owners, according to Cummins, and includes a one-time fee for Bluetooth-enabled hardware connecting to the vehicle.  “Zed Connect is developing products and services that will provide outstanding benefits for companies across the industry,” said Tom Linebarger, chairman and CEO of Cummins.  “Their first product offering, Zed ELD, is an intuitive smartphone-based ELD solution that fills the void for fleets that need a way to easily and inexpensively log hours electronically.”  Zed Connect’s leadership team is led by president and CEO Skip Kinford.  Kinford has gained experience in technology solutions, business development, and global sales while serving in leadership roles with MiX Telematics, inthInc Technology Solutions, and Mobileye.
