PCS Software announced a trio of new enhancements for Express, its transportation management software, designed to enable trucking companies to further streamline the efficiency of their operations.
The enhancements incorporate upgrades to the interfaces with Qualcomm and PeopleNet satellite tracking services:
• PCS’s Proximity Tracking interfaces with PeopleNet’s Pacos and Qualcomm’s Circle of Service to alert shippers, consignees and customers when a driver reaches a certain radius of the pickup or delivery location, eliminating the need for phone calls for proximity notification;
• HOS (Hours of Service) Tracking provides real-time updates on available on-duty and available driving hours for Qualcomm- and PeopleNet-enabled drivers; and
• In Cab Scanning allows for scans to be transmitted through Qualcomm and PeopleNet, and then automatically inserted into their database, to allow for rapid invoicing.
PCS says these augmentations to its interface partners will help its transportation clients reach new levels of productivity while saving time and operating expenses.
