NAME OF STARTUP: HOS247

FOUNDED IN (Year): 2017

FOUNDER’S NAME: Dzmitry Kukharau

THE IDEA: What is the problem being solved by your startup / business?:

HOS247 addresses the critical challenge of ensuring compliance with Hours of Service (HOS) regulations for truckers and fleet managers. The solution simplifies the process of accurately tracking, managing, and reporting driver logs to prevent violations and penalties.

Additionally, HOS247 enhances fleet efficiency and safety through features like real-time GPS tracking, automated IFTA reporting, and comprehensive support, tackling inefficiencies within fleet operations and supporting a seamless transition to digital logkeeping.

THE FOUNDER’S STORY: When and how did you come up with the idea for the business?:

Motivated by the desire to create a solution that not only ensured compliance but also improved the daily operations of trucking companies, we began to conceptualize a user-friendly, reliable electronic logging device (ELD) system. The vision was clear: to offer a product that bridged the gap between regulatory requirements and operational efficiency, supported by unparalleled customer service.

Drawing from past entrepreneurial experiences and the shared frustrations of many in the trucking community, we embarked on the journey of developing the HOS247 ELD.

WHO IS THE CUSTOMER: What is the typical profile of your target customer? Where would they be located?:

Our target customer is a diverse and dynamic group within the trucking and transportation industry, primarily comprising small to medium-sized fleet operators, independent truckers, and large-scale trucking companies seeking efficient, compliant fleet management solutions. These customers are typically located across North America, primarily the United States.

LESSONS TO SHARE: What 3 key lessons from your startup journey you’d like to share with aspiring entrepreneurs?:

1. Embrace adaptability: The only constant in the business world is change. From evolving regulations within the trucking industry to shifts in technology, the ability to adapt has been crucial.
2. Focus on customer needs: Our success with HOS247 has been largely due to our unwavering commitment to understanding and meeting the needs of our customers. In the trucking industry, this meant recognizing the pain points associated with compliance, efficiency, and safety.
3. Value of Resilient Teamwork: Building a startup is a collaborative endeavor. The strength and resilience of the team behind HOS247 have been indispensable. Each challenge presented an opportunity for us to learn, grow, and strengthen our collective resolve. It’s important for entrepreneurs to cultivate a culture of teamwork where open communication, mutual respect, and shared goals are key.
