Platform Science announced its official Certified Integration partnership with McLeod Software. According to the partnership, "fleets are now able to offer their drivers a next-generation in-cab experience."
The Platform Science integration within McLeod Software’s Symphony Mobile Communications module aims to help users monitor hours of service and directly manage dispatch operations. The LoadMaster integration spans the entire suite of Platform Science products.
“McLeod Software is pleased to announce the integration of our LoadMaster dispatch solutions with Platform Science’s telematics platform. We have worked together to provide the highest quality user experience for drivers and back-office users. We look forward to continuing to support our customers as they select the best-in-breed products from the marketplace,” said Robert Brothers, vice president of product for McLeod Software.
The Workflow app aims to help fleets enhance efficiencies for their drivers. Dispatchers can plan, match and dispatch loads, and they can react to changes in the load, such as new shipping document information, and send updates to drivers in real-time.
According to the company, the automation of pre-filled form fields ensures that the tasks drivers need to complete are already attached to the load. At the same time, dispatchers can connect with drivers through Loadmaster to send messages that will appear in real-time and enhance communications.
“The Platform Science Workflow app enables our McLeod TMS customer to plan, match and dispatch loads more efficiently, reduce out-of-route and empty miles and diversify and create new lines of business,” said Darrin Demchuk, vice president of product for Platform Science. “By shifting the driver’s job from data entry to simply confirming the automated data capture is accurate, and pairing that with an advanced TMS, fleets can achieve massive efficiency gains with their drivers with a simple, drop-in integration. We’re proud to dramatically upgrade the driver experience in partnership with an innovative TMS."
