Concrete Company Becomes ELD Compliant with Transformative IoT Solution
Penhall is the largest and most trusted provider of concrete services in North America, providing concrete cutting, scanning, coring, breaking, and removal services.
Before Penhall became an Intratem client in 2012, they struggled with supporting their employees’ mobile devices, invoicing, and maintaining a healthy bottom line. With close to 50 locations and numerous job sites, tracking invoicing was problematic, Intratem provided the support to enable them to work with multiple wireless carriers for maximum savings. Due to the new Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate from for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Penhall must comply with its standards before the December 2017 deadline. The government has mandated that companies must electronically record a driver’s Record of Duty Status (RODS), which replaces the paper logbook some drivers currently use to record their compliance with Hours of Service (HOS) requirements.

“I have acquired a great appreciation for the service that Intratem provides our IT Department. They handle end user requests quickly and with accuracy. Their ability to handle the initial process with invoice management is a huge benefit for me personally.”
Valerie Smith, IT Director
Penhall’s new ELD compliance challenge presented an opportunity for Intratem to implement a customized Internet of Things (IoT) solution to ensure Penhall met the December deadline. Intratem provisioned all in-truck tablets with ELD compliance software, MDM, and the ability to communicate with IoT units. Intratem heads the management of this ELD project, eliminating the burden on the Penhall team. The additional IoT devices will be managed on a continuous basis by Intratem to maintain the lowest possible cost while still providing help desk support. The data collected from the IoT devices can not only benefit the department monitoring ELD compliance, but also be utilized in other mission critical areas of business.
