TRUCE (Formerly Cellcontrol) delivers Contextual Mobile Device Management solutions to eliminate device distraction in the workplace. TRUCE enables companies to temporarily suspend or allow access to mobile apps and features based on the work being performed, the work location or the workgroup. TRUCE's patented CMDM platform enables companies of all sizes to minimize liability expense and legal/reputational exposure, while also improving employee productivity. Platform provides a comprehensive solution that allows companies to fully enforce their policies across all Apple and Android devices.
With TRUCE, users are given complete control over employee mobile device usage while behind the wheel. Through the system, administrators can create personalized policies that restrict access to handheld calls, text/SMS messaging, email, social media apps, games and other inappropriate usage, while still allowing for mission-critical tools such as navigation or emergency calls. Policies are customizable at driver level, enabling specific drivers to have distinct protection settings. Once a mobile device is in safe mode, drivers are protected from distracting behaviors that lead to dangerous driving. Auto-response settings inform incoming callers and text message senders that the individual is currently operating a vehicle, and can respond once they reach their destination.
TRUCE's Beacon feature with smart detection enables the collection of data which is transmitted through the mobile app across a Bluetooth connection. Managers and administrators receive drivers’ safety scores straight to their mobile device after every trip. Users can check up on braking, speeding and various other driver behaviors included in the safety score and provided to drivers. Dashboards and reports can be configured to each company’s needs, enabling users to see insights at-a-glance such as the number of blocked calls, text messages, or apps during a selected period of time to ensure compliance and proper utilization. Visual charts and graphs display a breakdown of protected miles, while dynamic alerts notify users of any exceptions in real time.
Even with the lack of customer service that we experienced in the beginning, the benefits far outweighed the trouble reaching someone. The first year we put Cellcontrol in place, we had 50% less at-fault, rear end collisions with our fleet of 150+ vehicles on the road. The only factor that was changed was adding Cellcontrol, so that has to be the reason.
The software was pretty easy to learn. We like the fact that if one of our vehicles/devices are not in compliance, our management team gets an alert. We also use this to verify an employee was not using a device if they happen to be involved in an auto accident.
If we did have a question on how to pair the device to the software, it was hard to reach someone to help us over the phone.
Overall working with CellControl has been a good experience. From the initial sale, to implementation CellControl's team has been quick to respond and helpful. The software makes us MUCH more confident our team is not distracted while driving!
We have cellcontrol on about 100 phones at our company. Other than an issue I detail below, CellControl 100% meets our need. With safety being #1 priority this is a no-brianer. The cost is reasonable and customer support has been good. Some at our company say it works too well! :)
All aspects of cell control are great other than some issues with iphones. Those seem to have an on-going issue with connectivity or installing. We could give more details and would love this to get fixed! We are primarily android users but if this was not the case this would be a bigger issue.
We have reduced at fault accidents by up to 76%, and nearly eliminated aggressive driving. The Cellcontrol team does a great job supporting their product. They are always helpful & professional when we need support. Distracted driving is a real problem. I highly recommend Cellcontrol for businesses, families, and everyone looking to be safer behind the wheel.
It is easy to use, and saves our company big on preventing accidents & improving driver safety, and not just with the cell phones. With the telemetry data we collect, we are able to enforce driving policies and get a very good idea of how individual drivers act behind the wheel. We are also curbing aggressive driving and speeding, thank to Cellcontrol.
There is occasional issues with tracking (telemetry) data, but it can be resolved by making sure drivers have the most up to date version of software, and have enabled all permission for the app. Some drivers complain of slightly shorter phone battery duration because Bluetooth is always on.
Overall CellControl was a good business decision and we have seen a large reduction in at fault accidents as a result of this technology.
-Detailed Info and Metrics
-Real time Speeding Alerts
-Monthly, Weekly, Daily Reports on your specified info
-Enable/Disable Handsfree for drivers
-Customize rules per group or per driver
-Dashboard can display a wide array of options for you
-Newer Software so not all is 100% fleshed out (Very close though)
-Some things take two-four clicks when they could take just one.
-Updating Android Users to the newest software is tedious
-iPhone users can turn off certain permissions (More of a fault on Apple, and you can usually see this reflected somewhere in the CellControl data)
-API is incredibly outdated
-Running Reports manually is clunky. You select a date then select "Run monthly report" and if it's not the exact day, it'll run for the incorrect month window.
We drove over 2.5 million miles last year with 220 trucks. This app ensures that our drivers stay alert and focus on driving. The added benefit is the decreased accidents due to distracted driving and the increased safety of our drivers on the road!
The software does exactly what it is supposed to do! It blocks use of the phone while driving. Our business opted for the hardware trigger in addition to the application because of the increased accuracy and other reporting functions. It almost works too well. I say this because I was shocked at how often I reached for my phone instinctively while driving, only to be reminded by Cell Control that it is not safe. This application is changing our work culture for the better! I would highly recommend this.
It's hard for me to come up with Cons for this software. If I had to find one though, it would be the manual steps a user has to take to enable access to the phone for the application to work properly. There are sometimes 7-8 steps that has to happen for it to function. We had to write up detailed instructions for our employees in order to ensure that most could install the app properly.
