Toronto, ON - July 17, 2017 - Geotab today announced the launch of Driver DataSense from J. J. Keller & Associates, and integrations to TMWSuite and TMW TruckMate from TMW Systems. These in-demand and highly anticipated integrations promise customers streamlined operations, improved safety, and greater compliance to FMCSA hours of service regulations.
Selected specifically to address the needs of their mutual customers, J. J. Keller and TMW Systems join a burgeoning portfolio of mobile apps, software Add-Ins and hardware Add-Ons, enabling Geotab customers to customize and extend their fleet management.
The J. J. Keller® Driver DataSense® service helps fleets manage hours of service compliance based on data coming from the Geotab device, paper logbooks and driver time records. A dedicated client service specialist interprets fleet data and provides compliance guidance and DOT audit support. Additionally, customers can gather Business Intelligence reporting and other fleet analytics with detailed views down to the specific violation through a secure online portal. The result is better roadside inspections, CSA score improvement, best-practice time management, fuel use efficiency, and protection from DOT audits and interventions.
In the coming months, the Encompass® solution from J. J. Keller will also debut on the Geotab Marketplace. It uses a cloud-based system to report on data captured from the Geotab ELD, and data from the driver's smartphone or tablet that has the J. J. Keller Mobile® app.
“We are proud to partner with Geotab to offer the industry multiple options for hours of service compliance. Whether fleets prefer to have J. J. Keller compliance experts oversee the data coming from the Geotab device, or manage hours of service themselves using the J. J. Keller hours of service back office, we have a solution,” mentioned Rustin Keller, Executive Vice President, J. J. Keller & Associates.
