Updated buyout program offers fleets an affordable option to improve safety and increase efficiency
KeepTruckin, the #1 rated electronic logs and fleet management platform, today announced that new customers participating in its Shifting Gears buyout program will be offered free KeepTruckin Smart Dashcams for a year. Inspired by successful deployments by early adopters, the addition of the Smart Dashcam offers fleets of all sizes an affordable plug-and-play solution to improve safety, reduce risk, and streamline operations.
Working together to form an integrated platform, the KeepTruckin Electronic Logging Device (ELD) and Smart Dashcam offer a tamper-proof solution that provides real-time visibility into events as they unfolded from the driver’s perspective. By expanding its buyout program to include the Smart Dashcam, KeepTruckin has removed previous financial barriers for small- to medium-sized fleets looking to deploy a modern fleet management system that integrates hours of service compliance and video intelligence in one package. Participating in the KeepTruckin Shifting Gears program helps fleets cover the cost of switching to KeepTruckin solutions and addresses the needs of many fleets and drivers who can’t change ELD providers without the risk of high fees.
“We firmly believe that integrated dash cams are the way forward to making roads safer,” said Shoaib Makani, CEO, and co-founder, KeepTruckin. “The addition of our Smart Dashcam to the buyout program will make video intelligence more accessible to fleets and is the first step in seeing safety technologies as standard equipment across the trucking industry.”
Despite passenger vehicles being at fault in 85% of truck-passenger accidents, commercial drivers are more likely to be blamed when cases are litigated. Having undoctored recordings of critical events, such as hard braking, hard acceleration, or hard corners, provides fleet managers with transparency into events as they unfolded. Unlike other standalone, road-facing dash cams that are connected to vehicles and used by multiple drivers, videos recorded by the Smart Dashcam are automatically associated to a driver based on ELD data. By integrating hours of service with video monitoring, fleet managers are provided the context to clearly understand exactly what took place.
