J. J. Keller & Associates Inc. recently unveiled the Compliance Tablet, a mobile device with Keller’s patented E-Log technology built in. The Compliance Tablet offers fleet managers a simple, one-step option for making the transition to E-Logs. The device will be available Oct. 1.
The Compliance Tablet is a 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 that is pre-loaded with J. J. Keller Mobile applications. Approximately the size of a typical paper log book, the Compliance Tablet features a simple, user-friendly interface designed to enable drivers to input hours-of-service information quickly and easily.
A pre-programmed Roadside Inspection mode displays only the last seven days of logs, allowing drivers to simply hand the tablet to enforcement officers with no security concerns. The tablet is “locked down” to keep drivers from loading non-approved applications, and is also designed to become inoperable while the vehicle is in motion. All program enhancements such as HOS regulatory changes are done through automatic updates and never require hardware swap-outs.
For fleets who prefer to utilize their own (or their drivers’) smartphones or tablets, Keller also offers a “BYOD” (Bring Your Own Device) option. J. J. Keller Mobile applications are compatible with over 40 Android devices, and communicate with Keller’s ELD/EOBR in the same seamless manner. Customers can use the BYOD option exclusively, or may choose to utilize a mixture of Compliance Tablets and other mobile devices within the same fleet.
J. J. Keller Mobile applications work with Keller’s Gen II ELD/EOBR, which installs easily into virtually any commercial motor vehicle and is compatible with all vehicle classes. Data from the ELD/EOBR is instantly transferred to the cloud-based Encompass back office system, so fleet managers can view, report, track and analyze compliance levels.
