FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (June 21, 2018)
J. J. Keller Announces Availability of Shared ELD Solution with Geotab
Neenah, WI - Fleets can now use an FMCSA-registered ELD solution that leverages the regulatory tools of the J. J. Keller® Encompass® Fleet Management System and the telematics technology of Geotab’s open platform solution to help improve both fleet compliance and performance.
The new shared ELD solution replaces the companies’ AOBRD solution, enabling fleets to comply with the full ELD mandate deadline on December 16, 2019.
The solution pairs the cloud-based J. J. Keller® Encompass® system with Geotab’s GO7 ELD. A hard-wired connection between the Geotab device and the driver’s Android™ smart device with the J. J. Keller Mobile® app installed offers fleets a reliable and compliant ELD solution with best-in-class hours-of-service auditing and reporting. Fleets currently using the shared AOBRD solution from J. J. Keller and Geotab can upgrade to the shared ELD solution without having to swap out ELD hardware.
“Collaborating with Geotab has resulted in an ELD solution that gives the industry a new option for compliance, efficiency and oversight,” said Rustin Keller, president & CEO at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “With Encompass, fleets can more efficiently and effectively manage their everyday compliance tasks, so they can stay focused on business growth while minimizing risk.”
Encompass delivers interactive compliance tools to automate driver qualification, hiring, drug and alcohol program management, driver training, accident tracking, vehicle maintenance, IFTA reporting and unit legalization tasks.
Geotab’s telematics solution utilizes data collected via the Geotab GO7 device to help fleets monitor and address unsafe driving behaviors, such as speeding, hard braking, seatbelt use, sharp cornering and more. Fleets can also improve operations by monitoring vehicle location, fuel usage and vehicle diagnostics data.
