After review of the FMCSA rule that mandates the use of Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) by December 2017, J. J. Keller has announced its E-Log solution will require minor software updates to comply with new rule.
“We are pleased to see that FMCSA has expressly allowed the use of mobile devices for E-Logging, which J. J. Keller views as critical to providing a low-cost and flexible option,” said vice president & COO Rustin Keller. “We believe we can adjust to the rule with software updates alone and our current ELD will not need any hardware changes. This will allow our customers to use the equipment they have, with no costly swap outs.”
The J. J. Keller Encompass E-Log system is compatible with Apple and Android smart devices. The driver’s smart device with the J. J. Keller Mobile E-Log app installed, communicates via Bluetooth with the Keller ELD. Fleets can also choose to use the J. J. Keller Compliance Tablet that has a dedicated E-Log app.
