Qv21 adds Electronic On Board Recording to its product suite

Qv21 Technologies LLC said April 1 that it has added Electronic On Board Recorder capability (EOBR) to its LogisticsFramework product suite. Qv21 now offers the ability to electronically comply with the US Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations related to tracking truck drivers’ hours of service, mileage, and status.

Integrated with Qv21’s existing modules in the LogisticsFramework, drivers can now easily and electronically remain in compliance with DOT regulations. Simultaneously, dispatchers and managers have a real-time view of which drivers are compliant or getting close to running over their duty or driving times. The EOBR module is built into Qv21’s in cab android device and does not require any additional hardware. One device provides five critical functions: an EOBR, real-time dispatching and data collection, electronic ticketing, real-time GPS tracking, and driver/dispatcher messaging.

“This is another element in Qv21’s expanding feature set for oilfield trucking companies and other oilfield logistics providers”, said John Lacey, president of Qv21 Technologies. “Safety and compliance have always been a major focal point in the oilfield. Problems affect everyone and their businesses. Safer, compliant drivers not only reduce risk, they also add value to the tasks they perform. Now, dispatchers and managers as well as drivers have real time awareness of the drivers’ duty status, miles driven, and driving records.”

“Using the EOBR module, combined with the comprehensive data provided throughout
the LogisticsFramework and its other modules, OFS trucking companies are empowered to avoid problems rather than merely record their occurrence,” Lacey said. “The companies that service the oil fields can reduce risk and exploit opportunities in real-time as they more fully realize the power of complete situational awareness of their resources and the choices open to them. This is another major step in providing cost-effective solutions to the oil and gas industry supply chain.”

By integrating complete, DOT-compliant EOBR data with the LogisticsFramework, Qv21 simplifies the process of recording log data for drivers and adds a new level of awareness throughout the trucking company. “We’re here to help solve the logistics issues that our customers face,” Lacey added.

Based in Newport, RI, Qv21 Technologies has offices throughout the US, the UK, and South America.
