DriverTech — designers of the DT4000 TruckPC, a Windows XP-embedded onboard computing system with three modes of communications — on Sunday, March 8, announced at the Truckload Carriers Association Annual Convention several enhancements to its DTScan In-Cab Scanning solution. The new features are designed ot enhance the efficiency of business processes by making it easier for drivers and fleets to manage documents.

“DTScan is now even more intuitive, sophisticated and easy to use,” says Mike Nalepka, vice president of fleet imaging solutions at DriverTech. “The latest enhancements to our in-vehicle scanning solution enable fleets to greatly improve their bottom line by speeding cash cycles, reducing Day Sales Outstanding (DSO), cutting the time and cost of truckstop scanning and enhancing driver satisfaction. DTScan In-Cab Scanning is more than a scanning tool for drivers. It is a true productivity improvement solution.”

The latest version of the DTScan In-Cab Scanning solution can be included in all new applications of the DT4000 TruckPC system and will be provided to existing DTScan customers as part of their regular program updates. DriverTech says the newest features include:

  • Intelligent Document Transmission capabilities that enable fleets with Forms Recognition software to automatically identify and categorize document types and streamline document entry in office systems upon arrival, without the need for manual data entry;
  • Driver Load Number Entry option that reduces bill processing time, and with automatic inclusion in the document transmission string provides for immediate and quick confirmation to validate load number;
  • Date/Time Stamp that tells drivers exactly when a document batch was scanned relative to an established cut-off time for driver settlement, eliminating disputes; and
  • Tap/Zoom/Drag features and an onscreen keyboard that make it simpler and easier to enter data, and remove unnecessary buttons from the onboard TruckPC.
  • DriverTech says its DT4000 TruckPC tri-mode (satellite, cellular and Wi-Fi) onboard computing system allows for a wide range of application choices and offers fleets an immediate return on investment by not paying a transaction charge per page for scanning in the cab. The DT4000 works with the DTScan In-Cab Scanning solution, a production-level scan-and-capture technology for truck cabs utilizing Visioneer OneTouch scanners with Kofax VRS technology. The company says the system uses Microsoft Windows XP processes and software applications that meet professional imaging standards at a reduced image size, thereby resulting in smaller data transmissions and faster processing into integrated back office enterprise systems.
