Verizon Networkfleet and J.J. Keller & Associates Are About to Make Trucking a Lot Less Complicated
|By Business Wire

Verizon Networkfleet and J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. have reached an
agreement to develop the Trucking industry’s first integrated, GPS fleet
management solution which will provide complete performance and
compliance management. Unique to the industry, J.J. Keller’s Encompass®
compliance system will be added later this year to Verizon
Networkfleet’s comprehensive fleet management portfolio.
“Verizon Networkfleet and J.J. Keller are offering a different approach
to the regional and long-haul trucking markets in developing a
compliance solution that includes telematics-based features for improved
driver safety and efficiency,” said Clement Driscoll, Founder &
President of C.J. Driscoll & Associates. “This offering will leverage
the strengths of leaders in their respective fields.”
With this new integrated solution, Verizon Networkfleet clients will be
able to efficiently manage critical requirements such as hours of
service (HOS), driver vehicle inspection reports (DVIRs) and fuel taxes
(IFTA), offering greater ability to manage and improve Compliance,
Safety and Accountability (CSA) scores. The J.J. Keller electronic
compliance functionality will be embedded in Verizon Networkfleet
hardware, which will seamlessly transfer data to the J.J. Keller Mobile®
app via Bluetooth technology.
“Due to increased regulatory scrutiny aimed at keeping the roads safer —
including a potential regulation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety
Administration (FMCSA) requiring electronic logging of drivers’ hours of
service — we recognized that the time was right to introduce a
comprehensive and cost-effective compliance solution based on
telematics,” said Joshua Haims, General Manager with Verizon
Networkfleet. “Collaborating with J. J. Keller, the leader in safety and
compliance, is a natural fit.”
A recent study¹ conducted by the Center for Truck and Bus Safety at the
Virginia Tech Transportation Institute and commissioned by the FMCSA
found that trucks equipped with electronic logs experienced a 53 percent
lower driving-related hours-of-service violation rate, an 11.7 percent
reduction in their total crash rate and a 5.1 percent reduction in their
preventable crash rate.
Verizon Networkfleet clients will also have access to the nation’s
largest wireless network through Verizon, in addition to the ability to
integrate their existing devices and tap into mobile device management
“Having been selected for our expertise in safety and compliance is a
real honor, and this collaboration brings two well-respected firms
together to create a one-of-a-kind solution,” said Rustin Keller,
J. J. Keller’s Executive Vice President & COO. “The flexibility,
simplicity, and affordability of our mobile platform set it apart.”

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
