Neenah, WI and Princeton, N.J. — June 16, 2015— “The J. J. Keller® Compliance Tablet™ makes switching to E-Logs easier, and now it makes navigation easier, too.”
That’s the observation of Randy Thome, vice president of technology services at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “We’ve partnered with ALK Technologies to add their CoPilot® Truck™ GPS navigation solution as an option on our all-inclusive J. J. Keller® Compliance Tablet™. That gives fleets truck-specific navigation combined with a simple, turnkey E-Log solution in the same device.”
With the CoPilot Truck navigation solution, professional drivers using the J. J. Keller® Compliance Tablet™ will be able to:
- Generate the best truck-legal route based on their vehicle’s height, width, length, weight and number of axels
- Get constant access to reliable offline navigation and detailed streets maps that don’t require a mobile data connection
- Optimize routes that include up to 50 stops
- Get load-specific routing to avoid roads that restrict hazardous materials
- View HOS information alongside the clear navigation guidance screen
- Locate driver points of interest, including truck services, truck stops, rest areas, weigh stations and CAT scales.
The navigation solution also provides 2D, 3D and directions-only views; detailed voice instructions; and a speed limit display among other features.
“We put the focus on total simplicity for both drivers and carriers, because we know the switch to E-Logs can impact all aspects of an organization," added Thome, "This built-in navigation option is another great way to simplify fleet operations."
The J. J. Keller® Compliance Tablet™ is a 8" Android™ smart device with 4G coverage and comes preloaded with the J. J. Keller Mobile® E-Log app. The tablet gathers engine data from the J. J. Keller® electronic logging device (ELD) that’s compatible with all vehicle classes. Driver and vehicle data is then sent to the web-based J. J. Keller® Encompass® back-office system for a fully-blended view of compliance and performance.
“We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with J.J. Keller by adding our industry leading commercial navigation solution to its fleet-friendly technology,” said Dan Popkin, senior vice president of enterprise solutions at ALK. “In addition to making it easier for drivers to operate more efficiently, safely and in compliance, CoPilot Truck also enables our mutual customers using the J. J. Keller® Encompass® system to more effectively manage compliance and performance as both products share ALK’s single source of truck-specific data and routing.”
