Prophesy Transportation Solutions Inc., a provider of trucking and logistics software solutions to the transportation industry, and Teletrac Inc., a provider of advanced fleet management solutions, on Tuesday, May 24, announced the availability of a new seamless interface whereby users of the Prophesy Dispatch Series Software solution can integrate directly with Teletrac’s Fleet Director GPS and Vehicle tracking software.

Fleet Director is designed to help fleet managers locate and track the position and operation of fleet vehicles, providing greater visibility into fleet operations; as a result, companies can gain greater operational efficiencies, reduce costs, improve driver productivity, and enhance customer service.

Integration with Fleet Director gives Prophesy Dispatch users access to Teletrac features such as turn-by-turn navigation, real-time vehicle tracking, live traffic data and accurate estimated time of arrival (ETA) to help simplify work force management. Combined with Fleet Director’s 2-way messaging capabilities, communications between dispatchers and drivers become more efficient and effective, the companies say.

For example, “new loads” and all associated data created in Prophesy Dispatch are sent automatically to the drivers’ in-cab device; drivers can notify dispatchers instantly regarding key load information and confirmations, arrivals, departures, BOL, actual weight, actual quantity, delivery notes and other information processed by Prophesy Dispatch ─ all at the touch of a few buttons via the Fleet Director in-cab unit. Meanwhile, GPS vehicle tracking lets dispatchers know the precise location of each vehicle, facilitating complete visibility of vehicle movements and activities.

“The size of Teletrac’s installed base, exceptional quality of product and long-term focus on customer service makes Fleet Director a solution we can quite comfortably recommend to our users,” says Bill Ashburn, Prophesy vice president and general manager. “Our companies share the same ‘roots’ of dedication to the industry.”

”We decided to team with Prophesy for a number of reasons,” says Drew Hamilton, Teletrac executive vice president. “The integration of Fleet Director with Prophesy Dispatch addresses an acute need for many of our trucking customers – a dispatch system that offers complete operational visibility.”
