HCSS Telematics is a GPS and telematics solution designed for the construction industry that enables users to track the location and performance of an entire fleet, using either HCSS GPS devices or the Original Equipment Manufacturer devices already installed.
The solution can capture location, speed, run time, idle time, geofence alerts and more. It is also able to monitor driver behaviors and adjust usage to avoid incidents and misuse of equipment and guard against loss or theft.
HCSS Telematics can track vehicle schedules, delivery times, location data and costs through a single website and export cost analyses and invoices. It can also send telematics data to other HCSS solutions to log equipment hours for time cards, schedule and dispatch equipment, schedule preventative maintenance, generate work orders and manage fuel and fluid usage.

The GPS seems to be pretty accurate and works well. We use it on a daily basis to track pickups and trucks. The support for this has been very helpful working out all of our bad products/wires/etc. We are starting to use the telematics more and it is helpfuk for tracking hours and mileage each day, week, month, year.
The new mobile website is a bit difficult to navigate. I have had some trouble transitioning from the old website to the new. We have expressed a lot of our issues with the HCSS support team after they flew up to North Dakota to hear our issues. It has been slowly getting better but is is not near perfect yet.
Need to watch closely on some of the pings/tracking and such to learn the way the software and GPS works. Once you better understand how it tracks it makes it much easier to track and know what is going on.
The GPS is limited to where it works; but, it is incredibly good when implemented with Dispatcher / E360.
Again doesn't work in Canada and it has some limitations in what it can read from OBDII systems on the unit.
