One of the most time-consuming parts of managing driver qualification is collecting the required documents from drivers and tracking when credentials are coming due, according to J.J. Keller & Associates. To simplify this process, the company introduced the new Documents app for clients of its driver qualification services.
Using the Document in-app camera, drivers take a photo of their documents — including items such as driver’s licenses and medical cards — and securely send them directly to J. J. Keller for complete DQ file management. The app then provides drivers with the real-time status of documents pending transmission, received, accepted or in need of attention.
“With this app, we can also alert drivers and their fleet managers of credentials coming due,” said Shaun Gunderson, vice president of managed services at J. J. Keller. “This helps keep DQ files current and in compliance without fleet managers having to do all the work of tracking down the documents themselves.”
The Documents app can be used by the drivers of clients using any of J. J. Keller’s driver qualification services, including Driver Qualification File Management, Non-Regulated Driver Qualification File Management, and Driver Qualification File Audit.
“Allowing drivers a way to participate in their own DQ compliance provides fleet managers with a stress-free way to address driver qualification,” added Gunderson.
