Vigillo Partners With J.J. Keller to Match Training With Drivers

LAS VEGAS — Data mining software provider Vigillo on Oct. 2 announced a partnership with J.J. Keller & Associates Inc. to pair unsafe driver behavior data with the assignment of appropriate training.

Vigillo CEO Steven Bryan said the partnership will allow Vigillo’s Prescriptive Analytics Solution that diagnoses the behavior of 500,000 truck drivers to be paired with Keller’s online driver training library.

Vigillo’s data collection includes Compliance, Safety, Accountability violation information from law enforcement, which Bryan said can be combined with “critical event” data from Vigillo’s on-board technology event data.

A driver’s risky behavior can then be matched with subject matter from Keller’s Training On Demand library of interactive driver training courses to remediate the unsafe behaviors, Bryan said.

“We’re diagnosing the patient and then we send out the information to J.J. Keller and they deploy the appropriate training,” Bryan said at a news conference here. “So we’ve mapped the data to their library of training.”

Vigillo will in turn be able to follow up to determine if the driver completed the training and see if the training is making the driver more safe, Bryan said.

“This partnership taps into our companies’ core strengths — safety training for J.J. Keller and data mining for Vigillo — to improve driver safety,” Rustin Keller, executive vice president of J.J. Keller, said in a statement. “And that’s really what it’s all about.”
