Depot Release: August 2014

We are pleased to be able to share details with you of the August upgrade to EROAD's Depot web service. The upgrade will take place at 8pm AEST (Wednesday 27 August).

In this release we have a lot to talk about with some great new features:

  • The big one, our new Partner Gateway
  • Improved Service Module
  • New Over Speed Report
  • View Depot on your mobile device

Partner Gateway


Whether you want to monitor the temperature of your reefers, the weight of logs being hauled or jobs that are currently allocated to your mover – if your data supplier can submit the information to your EROAD Depot in an agreed format we can display it. This will provide fleet managers with the ability to monitor all key information about their vehicles in real time on one screen in the EROAD Depot – a one-stop shop.

In extensive trials iCOS has demonstrated the successful use of the new Partner Gateway feature, tracking allocated jobs against vehicles in the EROAD Depot.

Refer to EROAD Help Site for details or talk to iCOS at or NZ 0800 001 668.

Improved Service Module

With this release we have added some further improvements to the popular Service Module.

To help you plan which vehicles need booking into the workshop we have added current odometer readings and current engine hours to the Service Schedule Report. Now you can see not only at what stage a vehicle is due for a service but also its current status without having to refer to other screens in Depot.

We have also increased the number of items that can be scheduled for each vehicle or asset from 10 to 25. This opens up the Service Module for not only managing services but also renewable permits and other recurring vehicle related tasks.


Refer to EROAD Help Site for details.

Improvements to EZmessage in Driver App Version 2.0

The latest version of EROAD’s Driver app enables drivers using the EZmessage service to more easily recognise when their mobile device is offline. A new red OFFLINE – Waiting for connection… bar will appear at the top of their screen.

The status of messages sent in offline mode will be clearly highlighted as:

  • 'Sending... waiting for connection' or
  • 'Failed to send at <date/time>'
