To help fleets avoid the obstacles and business disruptions when transitioning from paper logs to electronic logging devices (ELDs), J. J. Keller & Associates announced it has introduced the Driver DataSense Plus with ELD Rollout service.
“This new service makes it far easier for fleets to meet FMCSA’s Dec. 18, 2017, ELD mandate deadline by letting us facilitate the process. Our white-glove service, delivered by our Managed Services team, ensures coordination of all aspects of the transition, from end-to-end ELD implementation to internal change management,” said Rustin Keller, executive vice president & COO of J. J. Keller.
Led by a J. J. Keller project leader who works with customers through the entire process, the ELD rollout includes a custom implementation plan, installation of J. J. Keller ELDs, configuration of J. J. Keller’s Encompass back-office compliance system, setup of the J. J. Keller Mobile logging app, and driver training on the system.
Once the rollout is complete, J. J. Keller said its technology aggregates the continuous stream of ELD data, in addition to data from paper logs and driver time sheets. According to the company, a client service specialist conducts ongoing analysis of that data to identify compliance and performance issues and provide regulatory guidance to customers so they can correct the issues. Clients also receive help updating unassigned driving time, a common struggle for fleets transitioning from paper logs to ELDs.
“By using the J. J. Keller Driver DataSense Plus with ELD Rollout service, fleets are assured of a successful and streamlined transition to ELDs,” added Keller. “And by managing that influx of data, we also help fleets improve Hours of Service compliance over the long haul.”
