Who is your ideal customer?

KeepTruckin’s ideal customer is required to comply with the ELD mandate, but doesn’t believe the process should be complex and expensive.  Our customers value simplicity so they can focus on their real job: moving the American economy forward.

What one piece of advice would you give someone shopping for an ELD solution?

Self-certified does not mean FMCSA verified.  Use the FMCSA’s compliance checklist to ensure the ELD is compliant and look for unbiased reviews (i.e. app stores, Facebook pages) to gauge if the provider is credible.

What are best practices for driver adoption and implementation?

Introducing proprietary technology to a driver means they have to learn a new device in addition to transitioning to electronic logging.  With a familiar smartphone or tablet based solution, you’ve already won half the battle.

Also, ask your drivers for recommendations.  Involving them in the process will increase buy-in and may just create an internal champion.
