NEENAH, Wis., Feb. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For fleet managers, few things provide more valuable insight than witnessing a driver’s behavior firsthand. By adding video event hardware and management tools to its line of safety and compliance solutions, J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. has made it possible for fleets to do just that.
The J.J. Keller® Encompass® Video Event Management solution and Dash Cam Pro will become available in early April 2019, offering an additional way for fleets of all sizes to manage risk, identify problematic driver behavior, and provide remedial coaching and training.
“A quality in-cab video recording solution is crucial to helping fleets mitigate risk and protect their brand,” said Tom Reader, senior director of marketing at J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “Capturing driver video footage provides evidence leading up to an event or accident, exonerates innocent drivers, identifies fatigued or distracted driving, and delivers more information on driver behaviors — all of which can lead to reduced insurance rates and timely driver coaching, resulting in a tremendous return on investment.”
J.J. Keller’s dash-mounted camera technology reads traffic signs and records driving footage. Data captured can help with driver compliance and coaching by providing evidence of hard acceleration, hard braking, cornering, lane drifting, following too close, rolling stops, and more. Footage is available for review through a back-office dashboard featuring detailed driver and event reporting, data trends, and mapping to pinpoint where specific events took place. Combining video intelligence with J.J. Keller’s proven Encompass driver compliance dashboard delivers a unique scope of guidance particularly beneficial to fleets.
In studies conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI), an event-based video system, combined with a driver behavior modification system, accounted for estimated reductions in fatal and injury crashes of 20 percent and 35 percent respectively. Similarly, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) concluded that onboard video systems provide valuable information for evaluating the circumstances leading to a crash, as well as critical data for assessing survivability.
“We are focused on, and leading experts in, safety and decision tools that help fleets ensure their drivers and vehicles are operating safely and in compliance,” said Rustin Keller, J.J. Keller president and CEO. “Video event management is a game changer when it comes to helping fleets determine if they have safe drivers and safe vehicles, improving CSA scores, and reducing accidents and risk.”
