Pegasus TransTech has released a new smart phone application. Transflo Mobile+ allows drivers to accept loads, update trip status, report accidents and claims, receive and send messages to their fleets as well as send delivery documents.
According to the company, Transflo Mobile+ gives carriers the ability to send load tendering information to drivers even when drivers are not in the cab of their truck. The app interfaces with a fleet’s TMS system to show the driver available loads with the ability for the driver to accept a load, decline a load and confirm pick-up and delivery right on their smartphone.
The app also allows drivers to take color pictures and fill out electronic forms for accidents or claims. In addition, fleets now have the ability to two-way message drivers right on the app.
A settlement function allows drivers to access information showing when they have been paid for a load.
The user interface is customizable. A fleet can add their own logo, indexing preferences and choose the functionality and applications they want their drivers to be able to use.
“Today’s mobile technology landscape is complex and rapidly changing. Our Transflo Mobile+ release is our commitment to produce innovative solutions that solve emerging business challenges,” said Frank Adelman, president and CEO. “We are excited to pass this new functionality on to carriers and brokers. With the exchange of real-time information, Transflo Mobile+ will help bridge the gap between the field and the office to shorten core business processes and boost efficiency.”
Mobile+ includes the functionality to scan and send documents. It auto detects and crops borders, enhances and compresses images and provides quality checks to ensure the highest quality document submission. The app also includes an in-motion restriction to ensure safety of the user.
