FourKites announced it has integrated with McLeod Software. The integration makes FourKites' tracking technology available to users of McLeod Software's end-to-end brokerage management software, PowerBroker.
FourKites said it is integrated with more than 40 ELD/GPS providers powering the trucking industry. ELD will be required by virtually all trucks by the end of next year. In addition to proprietary smartphone apps, FourKites’ recently launched an app-less tracking technology using cell tower triangulation that works on virtually any cell phone.
FourKites tracks truck locations every 15 minutes, recalculates ETA using real-time location data, and automates arrivals and departures using robust geo-fencing technologies, according to the company. “Integration allows McLeod’s customers to access all of this powerful information within their PowerBroker software,” it added. “Integration virtually eliminates the need for check calls to drivers and dispatchers, and saves customers both time and money.”
"We're very pleased with this integration that enables McLeod's brokerage customers to access our most comprehensive, most affordable tracking service," said FourKites CEO Mathew Elenjickal. "We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship."
“The inclusion of FourKite’s load tracking application as part of PowerBroker’s Brokerage Tracking module helps strengthen the choices our brokerage customers have in their need to implement a tracking solution. The partnership between McLeod Software and FourKites will ensure a quality end-to-end solution for our mutual customers,” said Robert Brothers, manager of product development at McLeod.
