Total Contracted Units is a non-GAAP measure used by EROAD which represents the total units subject to a customer contract and includes both Units on Depot and units pending instalment.

EROAD’s growth in New Zealand met the company’s expectations for this quarter, with consistent pricing, attracting both enterprise and small to medium businesses.

The North American market for EROAD continued to deliver as anticipated with Total Contracted Units up 44% on Q1FY19. Installations have commenced for the enterprise fleet customer announced in Q4FY19 and the pipeline for enterprise remains strong and there is a solid run rate for small to medium businesses.    

The small to medium businesses run rate in Australia has yet to reach EROAD’s expectations however an encouraging enterprise pipeline has been established and, as we saw in North America, larger enterprise accounts generally involve a longer sales lead time.

About EROAD

  • EROAD believes every community deserves safer roads that can be sustainably funded. This is why EROAD develops technology solutions (products and services) that manage vehicle fleets, support regulatory compliance, improve driver safety and reduce the costs associated with driving.  EROAD also provides valuable insights and data analytics to universities, government agencies and others who research, trial and evaluate future transport networks.

By March 2019, this had delivered NZ$2.5B to NZTA for the sustainability of the NZ transport network. In the USA, EROAD introduced the first electronic Weight Mile Tax service (2014) and the first independently verified Electronic Logging Device service (2017).
