Aljex Software — a provider of hosted management software for freight brokers, 3PLs and other transportation providers — announced today, March 30, that it has integrated with SaferWatch to facilitate the verification of carrier safety histories. The company says integration enables its customers who also subscribe to SaferWatch to verify carrier records quickly and easily from their Aljex desktop screens.
SaferWatch collects data from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, data that is spread across multiple agency websites and can be difficult and time-consuming to access, according to Aljex; SaferWatch brings it all together and monitors changes in the records of any carriers on a watch list. Customers can import a list and add new carriers at any time, according to the company; SaferWatch will send a daily alert e-mail with any changes to these carriers.
Aljex says SaferWatch integration saves time for its customers, who can add a new carrier to the system by simply entering the carrier’s USDOT motor carrier identification number; SaferWatch then fills in all the carrier information automatically — name, address, phone, fax, safety rating, insurance limits and more.
“We’re very pleased to offer integration with SaferWatch,” says Tom Heine, president of Middlesex, N.J.-based Aljex. “It’s an excellent service, the most efficient way for our customers to be sure that loads are assigned to responsible carriers.”
SaferWatch is offered by the Grizella Corp. based in Hebron, N.D., provider of PostEverywhere, the load- and truck-posting service for freight shippers, intermediaries and carriers; PostEverywhere also is integrated with Aljex.
“Aljex continues to be the technology leader in what they do and is always easy to integrate with,” says Mark Draeb, president of Grizella Corp. “This is the second integration our company has done with Aljex which has gone flawlessly.”
