McLeod Software Corp. has upgraded its LoadMaster Business Intelligence Software Tools, adding features designed to help managers determine the profitability of business components, as well as mapping options.

The upgrade adds three new features:

Executive Dashboard Module allows managers to measure and monitor key performance indicators at different company levels. The browser-based system displays data in real-time with a variety of graphics. Filters can be used to show the most significant indicators.

Profitability Analysis Module obtains information from operations along with a carrier’s general ledger revenue and expenses information to calculate profits down to the customer, lanes, drivers, or truck level.

Integrated Mapping Interface allows dispatchers to see the exact location of a truck. The module also displays information on driver, tractor, load, and indicates potential problems.
