J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. and Vigillo Partner To Develop Data-Driven Driver Training
Prescriptive Analytics Solution identifies unsafe truck driver behavior and assigns appropriate training
NEENAH, Wis./PORTLAND, Ore. — J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of innovative truck driver training solutions, has partnered with Vigillo LLC, creators of the transportation industry’s most advanced big data and data mining software products, to provide a new Prescriptive Analytics Solution that identifies unsafe behavior in drivers and assigns appropriate training.
The Prescriptive Analytics Solution from Vigillo and J. J. Keller uses the data that Vigillo routinely gathers from over 500,000 truck drivers to diagnose driver behavior that may lead to unsafe operations. For example, CSA violation data from law enforcement is combined with critical event data from on-board technology to create a rich profile of driver behavior. The resulting map of risky behavior is then matched with subject matter from the extensive J. J. Keller® Training On Demand library of interactive driver training courses to remediate those unsafe behaviors.
“This partnership taps into our companies’ core strengths — safety training for J. J. Keller and data mining for Vigillo — to improve driver safety,” said Rustin Keller, executive vice president & COO of J. J. Keller. “And that’s really what it’s all about.”
“Identifying training opportunities, then deploying a training solution virtually in real time, is just another example of taking the power of data and turning it into actionable solutions,” said Steven Bryan, CEO of Vigillo. “We are thrilled to be working with J. J. Keller on this innovative use of our technology.”
