ALK Technologies, Inc., a global provider of GeoLogistics systems and navigation software, announced that ALK Maps and PC Miler Web Services are now available as part of J.J. Keller’s Encompass with E-Logs Premium Edition online tool. The Encompass Premium Edition is an online dashboard that enables fleet operators to manage compliance and performance.
ALK’s PC Miler Web Services and ALK Maps offer a customizable, cloud-based interactive mapping platform with visualization of routing and mapping with precise geocoding.
The Encompass Premium Edition collects data from the J. J. Keller Electronic Logging Device (ELD) and the KellerMobile app, which operates on a range of mobile devices (iPads, Android devices or Keller’s Compliance tablet), to provide Fleet Managers with compliance and operational intelligence, including E-Logs and the tracking of fuel use, speed, braking, and GPS location.
The Mapping feature powered by ALK Maps provides an instant overview of the fleet to improve routes, manage fuel, and track units. Fleet managers can pull up a map and see the location of all fleet vehicles in real-time. The vehicles are identified with Truck icons on the map with hover-over and pop-up boxes providing easy access to detailed information about the vehicle, including but not limited to, unit number, driver name, speed, address location and date/time last update received.
Clicking on a specific unit also provides an option to view the bread crumb trail of the driver’s route. The map component is set to auto-refresh showing the last reported location of all vehicles at any instant. PC Miler Web Services is integrated to automatically generate trip reports showing the miles the vehicle has driven in a particular state, which assists in generating fuel tax reports.
“When we switched from another known provider for our mapping platform, ALK ensured a smooth and seamless transition,” said Tom Ditzler, senior product line manager, technology services, transport at J.J. Keller. “We are committed to a long-term relationship with ALK and have plans to leverage additional products and modules providing enhanced functionality to add more value for our mutual customers.”
