Geotab has announced the launch of Driver DataSense from J.J. Keller & Associates and integrations to TMW Suite and TMW TruckMate from TMW Systems, through its online Marketplace.

To address the needs of mutual customers, J.J. Keller and TMW Systems are joining the Geotab Marketplace of mobile apps, software add-ins, and hardware add-ons, allowing Geotab customers more choice in customizing and extending fleet management capabilities.

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 service can help fleets with roadside inspections, CSA score improvement, best-practice time management, fuel use efficiency, and protection from DOT audits and interventions, according to J.J. Keller.

In the coming months, the Encompass solution from J. J. Keller will also 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.

“We are proud to partner with Geotab to offer the industry multiple options for hours of service compliance. Whether fleets prefer to have J. J. Keller compliance experts oversee the data coming from the Geotab device, or manage hours of service themselves using the J. J. Keller hours of service back office, we have a solution,” said Rustin Keller, executive vice president of J. J. Keller.

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 can be managed 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.”

“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,” said Brian Larwig, vice president and general manager, TMW Systems. “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.”

The Geotab Marketplace offers an ecosystem of business-focused applications and add-ons, helping customers add value to their Geotab fleet management solution. Launched in 2015 as a complement to the MyGeotab platform, the Marketplace is currently used by more than 14,000 Geotab customers.
