Vigillo and J.J. Keller partner to improve driver safety

by Truck West

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Vigillo and J.J. Keller and Associates have partnered to create the Prescriptive Analytics Solution to identify unsafe behavior in drivers and appropriate training.

Training will be provided by J.J. Keller, which is a provider of truck driver training solutions, with data being collected by Vigillo for the solution, using information the company collects from over 500,000 drivers to diagnose behavior that may lead to unsafe operations.

“Identifying training opportunities, then deploying a training solution virtually in real time, is just another example of taking the power of data and turning it into actionable solutions,” said Steven Bryan, CEO of Vigillo. “We are thrilled to be working with J. J. Keller on this innovative use of our technology.”

During the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas Oct. 2, Vigillo outlined what it called the four Es – enforcement, employment, education and engineering – as providing a wealth of information in the data collection process.

“If you add all this stuff up, we could be looking at somewhere around a billion observations a year,” said Steven Bryan, CEO of Vigillo, of the amount of data that is available. “The real power is the database behind this.”

Rustin Keller, executive vice-president and COO of J.J. Keller, said the partnership taps into each of the companies’ strengths, which would help improve driver safety.
