McLeod Software has announced the availability of two new modules, the Container Module for Truckload Carriers, for its LoadMaster enterprise transportation management system, and the Automated Forms Recognition module, utilizing its McLeod Document Imaging system.
The Container Module for Truckload Carriers offers specialized information that can be used to enter, track, and bill container movements, the company said. The tracking system alerts users of potential late returns, and a recurring orders feature eliminates redundant data entry.
"Containers are increasingly playing a vital role for these operations," stated Tom McLeod, president and founder of McLeod Software, "but their movements and information requirements are different. This new module, which was requested by our truckload customers, will do for containers what LoadMaster does for tractors and drivers-- streamline and organize the dispatching process."
In addition, the company has announced the Automated Forms Recognition module for its McLeod Document Imaging system. It is comprised of four engines allowing users to accurately and easily capture, validate, and classify data, processing paperwork without manual coding and input, the company said.
"For all types of motor carriers, the Automated Forms Recognition module transforms labor-intensive office operations into an advanced electronic document management system," said McLeod. "This new module, which reduces labor costs and saves time by expediting workflow and eliminating bottlenecks and data entry errors, is the latest in a series of product enhancements that our expanding Imaging division has designed to help customers realize the benefits of a truly paperless operation."
