"Providing fleets with an ELD that is compatible with their existing iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ device reduces up-front hardware costs and eliminates the need for additional data plans," says Rustin Keller, executive vice president and chief operating officer for J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “We have many Encompass customers who prefer Apple devices and run multiple applications in support of their business demands.
