J.J. Keller & Associates announced that 25 state trucking associations now are endorsing its E-Logs, powered by Encompass. As an online compliance and safety service, Encompass is designed to capture in-cab data from J.J. Keller’s onboard recorder, automate hours of service and provide audit reporting.
The state trucking association endorsements include Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
“We’re providing a technology solution that provides real value to a business,” says Rustin Keller, vice president of business services for J.J. Keller. “Companies that have adopted E-Logs regularly cite that the real-time reporting from in-cab technology actually increases driving time, with better routing and time management, and improves compliance with hours-of-service regulations. The end result is a more profitable operation.”
J.J. Keller’s electronic logging solution, powered by Encompass, is priced at $6.50 per driver per month, plus a one-time $199 onboard recorder fee and a monthly data plan for a mobile device. The Encompass solution goes beyond capturing in-cab hours-of-service data by storing significant driver and vehicle data, such as driver files and vehicle maintenance records, within the Web-based service.
