A new version of Pegasus TransTech’s Transflo Mobile has been released, the company said, improving its convenience and reliability when scanning and submitting documents electronically.
Using Transflo Mobile on a compatible iPhone or Android phone, a driver can capture a signed bill of lading and send the image in real time from anyplace with cell phone service. With this new release, a carrier also can send invoices and proof-of-delivery documents to a participating Transflo $Velocity broker, 3PL, or factoring company.
Transflo Mobile is a free download for the driver or carrier from the Apple App Store or Google Play and runs on any iPhone or Android that has a 5MP or better camera with autofocus.
“In a single, powerful app, Transflo Mobile covers the spectrum of transportation document delivery," said Bob Helms, CEO & chairman of Pegasus TransTech. “It is an indispensable link from driver to carrier to broker and ultimately to the shipper.”
A driver simply downloads the app, completes registration, then enters a specific carrier ID, and follows self-explanatory prompts, the company said. A carrier does the same when sending to a broker. All the necessary documents and data entries will be sent together in one transmission.
The app ensures visual quality by automatically cropping, properly aligning, and then enhancing document images on the phone. It converts images to black and white and compresses the file for a quicker, less costly transmission.
