About Us

Built By Operators, For Operators

In the late 1990’s, a small group of manufacturing IT and plant management professionals struggled to clean up their logkeeping. They saw how software was making other areas of their facility run more smoothly, and they wondered if they could simplify daily operations and improve communications by making their everyday logkeeping electronic. Their goals were simple: No more flipping through endless pages of logbooks looking for information. No more deciphering handwriting that might have been written by ants that walked through an ink puddle. No more sending two people out to do the same job, because neither knew the other person was already headed out to do it. Their ground rules for the electronic logbooks were logical: it needed to work how they worked. They didn’t want to change how they did things to use software. They wanted software to make their jobs easier. No such software existed, so they decided they’d better build it. eLogger was born, in a small office in northern Minnesota. Built by operators, for operators.

More than 20 years and 300+ facilities later, eLogger still feels the same way about our software. That’s why eLogger is still built by operators. There’s simply no better way to make sure the software continues doing what it was built to do: make your job easier. Period.

Culture

eLogger is a small, locally-owned company headquartered in Cloquet, Minnesota. If you have never heard of Cloquet, Minnesota, you are probably in pretty good company- although we do get national news attention at least once a year for how blisteringly cold it is up here (one of North America’s four coldest places!). Why would an international software company keep their offices in Cloquet, Minnesota, given any other choice? We all know the weather in Silicon Valley is always sunny and 70 degrees, so why do we stay here?

We’ll let you in on a little secret: It’s our people.

Northern Minnesota is an unusual place, famed for it’s industrial, manufacturing history, timber, mining, and shipping industries. We are a region built on hard work and respect for the weather- we love where we live, and we have to work hard to stay here. It’s something that is so deep in our bones that it’s reflected in our work ethic. Our region has some incredible demographics: we have unusually high terms of employment, worker retention, and overall job satisfaction. Maybe it’s Midwestern culture, maybe it’s the snow, or maybe it’s the legacy of farmers and miners whose boots we’re still wearing. Whatever it is, we’re keeping it: we bring heart to everything we do, and a commitment to both our clients and our employees’ success that you can really feel.

We’re a Midwestern company, and we mean to stay that way. We work hard, we play harder, and we approach every client relationship like we intend to keep it forever. Because we do.

Experience

For more than twenty years, eLogger has designed electronic logbook software around the particular needs of energy companies, water municipalities, manufacturers, and government agencies. As our client portfolio has grown, it’s become increasingly clear to us that electronic logbooks need to be simple to use, utterly reliable, on top of new changes in new standards, rules, and regulations. It turns out, doing that for more than 300 facilities across myriad heavily-regulated industry clusters is a pretty big job. That’s why it’s all we do. We don’t support a catalog of products, of which electronic logs are one small possible selection. The kind of product we provide, with the kind of support we provide takes our full attention. After twenty years, you can likely imagine that we’ve gotten pretty good at making electronic logbooks. We don’t mean to brag, but if we’re being honest, we really have.

We come to every new client with decades of deep, hands-on experience, ready to find the easiest way to make the move to electronic logkeeping. We’re here to offer counsel and support, as much help as you need, and a firm and steady hand on our product. Most of our clients don’t know every way they’ll ultimately use eLogger, when they first start with us. What they know is that whatever direction they decide to take eLogger in, in their facilities, they have a seasoned team of experts, ready to help them make their ideas reality.

We don’t get distracted- electronic logbooks are all we do. Whether as a sounding board, service, or an appreciative audience, we’re here. You can count on it.
