TISLOG - the next generation of Telematics
Surely you are already curious about TISLOG mobile - our new and time-tested mobile software solutions we have presented in our last newsletter.
But there is still much more to learn about the current technological leap at TIS, which by far not only defines itself by the new names.
What happens to Infodesk?
If you are TIS customer and currently use Infodesk, you might be wondering whether this solution for your headquarters will remain available and whether it is compatible with our new generation of software. Let us tell you so much already: TIS does everything to make the transition to new technologies as easy and convenient as possible while keeping options for cost-effective transition solutions open for our existing customers. This also applies to Infodesk. For details, please feel free to contact our team on site at the show.
As a first overlook we have already gathered some of the most important facts for you here:
TISLOG office and Infodesk, how do they match?
TISLOG office is consequent next step in developing and improving our proven PSV3 server that all of our customers are using. PSV3 Infodesk offers an optional web interface for searches, visualized locating and order management. There are also additional Web tools available - mainly for support purposes:
- The Observer gives a fleet overview from a technical perspective (online status, when was last seen etc.)
- The Device Manager is an internal tool that enables software configuration and management for each device.
New and different than before: The basic version of TISLOG office now already includes a browser-based user interface.
Depending on the requirements and usage intensity there are different configurations available for TISLOG office users:

Software: Telematics and minimum wage law
Users of our telematics solution TISLOG office have access to prepared reports by which the new documentation requirements can be met for the minimum wage law. This is especially useful, if the driver receives a salary instead of wage and the actual hours related are not yet recorded.
The MiLoG is associated with considerable administrative duties. According to the law employers are required to keep records of working for all employees and temporary workers with a gross monthly salary of up to 2958 EUR. The duration of the actual daily working time of employees needs to be recorded in German language and must be retained for two years for audits. Offenses such as missing or incomplete records will result in a fine of up to 30,000 EUR.
To avoid pitfalls in MiLoG (minimum wage law), it is therefore useful to document the work and constantly compare the minimum wage to the actually paid salary. If the salary falls below the minimum wage due to overtime, TISLOG office is able to calculate several alternatives: There are choices available, such as paying overtime or keeping of overtime or annual working time logs.
New software module: loading space documentation
The add-on module allows for quick documentation of loading areas, damages and oversized shipments in turnover. The corresponding solutions are fully integrated into the regular workflow, so that employees can easily document available spaces and all special cases in the handling of cargo, without having to put the terminal or the scanner aside. The created pictures of the loading area can be manually completed with information on the number of available free spaces and automatically be linked to the vehicle.
For this purpose, the loading documentation provides advanced capabilities to capture data during the documentation process. If necessary, up to 10 data fields are available.
The module can be easily connected to all major TMS and with other features not only ensures the simple analysis, but also a secure evidence, for example, in case of claims for compensation. The solution can also produce so-called "XML files", simplifying the connection to adjacent IT systems. Within the XML file also the name of the logged in user can be transmitted. This automatically documents, who captured the image of the loading area to simplify clarification of later requests.
