DriverTech — designers of a Windows XP-embedded onboard computing system with three modes of communications for the transportation industry — announced today, June 10, the commercial availability of its DTScan in-cab scanning solution. DriverTech says that with DTScan, fleets can realize an immediate return on investment by not paying a transaction charge per page for scanning in the cab, and by improving productivity and enhancing business processes.

“The ability to perform in-cab scan processing of proof-of-delivery and driver documents is a new capability that DriverTech is making available to the transportation industry,” says Mark Haslam, chief executive officer of Salt Lake City-based DriverTech. “DriverTech’s DT4000 mobile communications system working with our new DTScan software and the latest scanning technology uses familiar Microsoft Windows XP software applications, which gives our customers an innovative cutting-edge system that will meet current and future needs at a lower cost than alternative solutions.”

DriverTech says DTScan In-Cab Scanning solution is the world’s first production-level scan-and-capture technology for truck cabs utilizing Visioneer scanners with One Touch VRS (Kofax Virtual ReScan) technology providing “forms recognition friendly” documents that meet professional imaging standards. With the real-time transmission of time-critical documents immediately after a load is delivered, fleets can realize several benefits, according to the company, including:

  • Faster cash cycles — Scanning POD documents with DTScan in the cab, transmitting images and invoicing customers as the vehicle is departing lead to quicker revenue return and an increased cash reserve;
  • Improved bottom line – By invoicing at delivery with DTScan, realize a reduction in days sales outstanding;
  • Reduced stops – In-cab scanning with DTScan eliminates the need for drivers to spend valuable hours-of-service time using more costly truckstop services to scan POD and settlement documents; and
  • Quicker driver settlement – Paying drivers faster by eliminating paperwork delivery delays with DTScan can lead to improved satisfaction and driver retention.
