If your company currently lacks a comprehensive CPR system, then JSI’s market-leading team of experts is here to provide you with the critical record-keeping assistance that you need. CPRs not only play an important role in supporting a communication provider’s ongoing operations and strategic planning – by providing a complete record of all property units, including their locations, quantities, related costs, and equipment classifications based on use – they are essential to remaining in compliance with key record-keeping requirements established by:
• The Federal Communications Commission (FCC);
• The US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Rural Utilities Service (RUS); and
• Select federal grant programs.
For 60 years, JSI has been the preferred partner of hundreds of independent communications providers across the United States, providing expert advice and support to those companies to help them find success in every aspect of their businesses. Today, our team has decades of experience in developing and maintaining comprehensive CPRs that give our clients the kind of detailed accounts of their assets that they require to meet their immediate needs, while at the same time better preparing them for any audits and disasters that might arise in the future. Our team offers communications providers a comprehensive range of CPR services and solutions to meet their specific needs.

Notably, the types of CPRs that we frequently prepare for clients include:
• Central office CPRs
• Cable and wire CPRs
• Competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) CPRs
• General support facilities (GSF) CPRs
• Headend CPRs
• Internet CPRs
