Maverick selects EBE driver recruiting software

EBE Technologies, a provider of integrated enterprise process management solutions, announced that Maverick Transportation has licensed EBE’s Ships Driver Recruiting software to streamline its hiring process.

Ships Recruiting and Driver Management software manages the complete hiring cycle, EBE says; beginning with the processing of Web, faxed, mailed or phoned-in applications, the software then applies qualification rules against applications, and automates and audits the verification process, including electronic interfaces to third parties such as USIS, previous employers and wellness clinics.

The on-boarding process is done automatically as driver qualification files are received and verified against applicant data, according to EBE; depending on the business rules of the carrier, the orientation process then can be managed through Ships or, in Maverick’s case, integrated to a carrier’s orientation and financial software where driver master file data then either is stored in the Ships database or passed on to a carrier’s existing operations software.

“We evaluated many solutions before selecting EBE,” says Mike Hufnagel, vice president of information technology for Little Rock, Ark.-based Maverick. “The combination of its expertise in workflow processes, understanding of the transportation industry and breadth of interface capabilities made it an easy decision for us.”

EBE says Ships recruiting software will replace a paper-based system requiring massive amounts of data entry into Maverick’s AS/400 system; it will provide links and pass driver information and documents between Maverick’s current AS/400-based human resource, orientation and driver qualification file management systems. EBE says through its immediate document exchange software, once documents are processed through Ships software, they will be archived for retrieval in Maverick’s existing RVI imaging system.

“When we calculated the ROI for labor savings, improved efficiencies and the ability to hire qualified drivers more quickly, EBE clearly came out on top,” says Brad Vaughn, Maverick’s director of recruitment.
