Geotab announced the launch of Driver DataSense from J J Keller & Associates, and integrations to TMWSuite and TMW TruckMate from TMW Systems. These in-demand and highly anticipated integrations promise customers streamlined operations, improved safety, and greater compliance to the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration (FMCSA) hours of service regulations.

Selected specifically to address the needs of their mutual customers, J J Keller and TMW Systems join a burgeoning portfolio of mobile apps, software Add-Ins, and hardware Add-Ons, enabling Geotab customers to customize and extend their fleet management.

The J J Keller Driver DataSense service helps fleets manage hours of service compliance based on data coming from the Geotab device, paper logbooks, and driver time records. A dedicated client service specialist interprets fleet data and provides compliance guidance and DOT audit support. Additionally, customers can gather business intelligence reporting and other fleet analytics with detailed views down to the specific violation through a secure online portal. The result is better roadside inspections, CSA score improvement, best-practice time management, fuel use efficiency, and protection from DOT audits and interventions.

In the coming months, the Encompass solution from J J Keller will debut on the Geotab Marketplace. It uses a cloud-based system to report on data captured from the Geotab ELD, and data from the driver's smartphone or tablet that has the J J Keller Mobile app.

As leading TMS products, TMWSuite and TruckMate can help customers reduce empty miles and improve operating ratios and utilization by connecting people and processes with industry-specific workflow and automation. Both TMWSuite and TruckMate, from TMW Systems, are transportation management software for fleet operations that serve as the information hub of your organization, providing real-time visibility into order-entry, load-booking, dispatch and driver settlement, detention and service failures as well as many other processes so that you can manage by exception.

“TMWSuite and TruckMate provide fleets with powerful visibility into their operations, while addressing their industry-specific needs,” said Jennifer McQuiston, director, business development, TMW Systems. “With the insight enabled via our partnership with Geotab, customers can stay connected, improve efficiency, and drive their profitability.”

Brian Larwig, vice-president and general manager, TMW Systems, said: “TMW Reveal Series brings the power of big data analytics to fleets looking for ways to dramatically increase the efficiency and competitiveness of their final mile operations. These new tools enable users to generate actionable intelligence critical not only to how they operate their businesses today but also to enhance their competitive position in the years ahead.”
