The interface is designed to allow dispatchers and drivers to focus more on their jobs and less on the legwork of communicating load information, said PeopleNet. It will allow load information to be sent automatically to the driver’s in-cab device including origin; address; city; state; destination; goods information including weight, pieces and pallets; scheduled pick up date; and delivery date and time. Drivers will also be able to send and receive key logistical information such as actual arrival and departure times; bill of lading numbers; inventory measures such as number of goods and quantities broken down into weight, pallet and pieces; trailer number and more.
“We are pleased to expand upon the success of our popular PeopleNet integration module to offer this real-time exchange of detail to our users, right within their Prophesy Dispatch Solution,” said HighJump CMO Bill Ashburn. “PeopleNet continues to provide gold-standard fleet management tools to the transportation industry.”
Prophesy offers a suite of trucking and brokerage software, covering dispatch, accounting, IFTA, DOT compliance, truck tracking, vehicle maintenance and more.
“We are confident that our integration with Prophesy Dispatch will provide drivers with information that will help them have greater levels of safety, compliance, cost reduction and customer service, “ said Kerri Tabor, PeopleNet’s director of integration. “We are delighted to partner with HighJump to bring this solution to market.”
