J. J. Keller & Associates is offering the Compliance Tablet, a mobile device with Keller’s patented E-Log technology built in. The Compliance Tablet offers fleet managers a one-step option for making the transition to E-Logs, the company says, and the device will be available October 1, 2013.

The Compliance Tablet is a 7” 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 has an 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 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 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 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.

“The move to electronic logging is a daunting process to many fleet managers, so we’re pleased to offer a simple and flexible solution,” said Rustin Keller, vice president of operations and business services for J. J. Keller & Associates. “In addition to the flexibility of setting up E-logs on any Android device, customers now have the option to use the Compliance Tablet, which gives them a turn-key solution for one low monthly fee.”
