On top of systematic issues, customer support was non-existent with the previous provider. The Carrier was ready to make a change and began the process of finding a new technology provider.

After extensive research, Konexial was identified to support both current and future requirements. The Konexial My20 ELD + Fleet provided an easy-to-install hardware unit with a vast toolbox of features such as GPS tracking, HOS compliant logs, live log auditing, engine diagnostics, DVIR, one-touch exception statuses, team driver functionality, commercial turn-by-turn navigation, Geo-fencing and much more. Along with the robust every day driver and fleet admin functionality, the partnership with Konexial offered the fleet an opportunity to customize a solution to meet their ever-changing business needs. 

After a successful trial period, The Carrier quickly decided to deploy the Konexial My20 system for the entire fleet of 750+ users by way of a strategic roll-out plan. The biggest challenge of the implementation process was uninstalling the previous hardware. The Konexial team provided a detailed implementation plan, onboarding and training schedule, and comprehensive on-demand training resources. Weekly calls were conducted with both teams to ensure timeline was maintained and issues were resolved quickly.

With Konexial’s My20 installed, the fleet now has the benefit of ONE Dashboard for truck telematics, fleet management and video – saving the fleet time and money. 


Driver Scorecards + Custom Reporting 

“Every fleet requires a set of unique needs and reporting capabilities. The ability to meet a customer’s needs in a timely manner is mutually beneficial for carriers and Konexial. When customers bring pain points to our development team, it becomes an opportunity for us (Konexial) to improve our product and create value for our customers while differentiating ourselves from other providers,” said Ken Evans, Chief Technology Officer for Konexial. 

One of the most important requirements for the fleet management system was a way to accurately measure driver behavior and implement driver scorecards to enhance fleet wide driver retention. The ability to score drivers based on factual driver data brought value and a non-biased way to measure driver performance. Before implementing Konexial, dozens of hours were spent each quarter by the customer gathering and processing multiple data sources via Excel spreadsheets. By creating a unified, configurable Driver Scorecard, telemetry and AI camera events allow the fleet to manage what is most important to improving driver behavior and eliminating risk. The system includes configurable events (threshold and duration), 1 second level of accuracy and event data visibility in driver mobile app and admin web app. The Driver Scorecard is used to drive driver accountability via the quarterly incentive program.


Enhanced Fleet Safety with Integrated Dashcams

To complement the telematics data, the fleet also chose the LogiCam AI system for video security. This provides live, in-cab coaching and both on-demand and retrievable video capture to protect the fleet . Drivers receive alerts instantaneously when a dangerous driving behavior is detected, and are given the opportunity to correct the behavior LIVE as it is happening. Pairing in-cab driving behavior detection and HOS compliance enhances the comprehensive driver training and retention programs. 

The Carrier chose to work with Konexial because of the attention to detail and the service level provided to the fleet with a customizable and scalable fleet and video management system.
