Truckers will now be able to scan, send, and store freight documents with an iPhone or Android smartphone using a new cloud-based technology called Drive Axle introduced by Eleos Technologies.
Documents can be scanned from anywhere with no need to locate a fax machine, scanner, or overnight mail drop box, the company said. Documents are organized and stored securely online for one year, where they can be easily retrieved from any web browser. The service is priced at a flat $29/month.
“Owner-operators are seeking technology tools to help run their businesses more efficiently,” said Kevin Survance, Eleos CEO. “Drive Axle eliminates the headache of transmitting and filing paper documents and allows owner-operators to easily manage documents on the road.”
There is no limit on the number of scanned documents. The app is available for download in the iPhone App Store and the Android Market.
“With Drive Axle, drivers can scan and send documents the moment they are received, eliminating the delays often associated with carrying physical documents back to the home office or finding a truck stop with appropriate transmission capabilities,” Survance said.
Located in Greenville, SC, Eleos develops web and smart phone products utilizing for freight management, document imaging, process automation, and scalable web applications.
