The Prophesy division of Accellos, a provider of supply chain execution software solutions, has partnered with Eleos Technologies to include Eleos’ Drive Axle mobile scanning application into the Prophesy Dispatch package for trucking and fleet management.
With the enhancement, drivers can use their smart phones to scan documents remotely in the cab, or anywhere, and immediately send the documents to the Document Imaging module in Prophesy Dispatch without the cost and hassle of faxing and without risking damaged or lost originals.
Drive Axle is a free mobile app that runs on Android and iOS smart phones and tablets. The driver simply takes a picture of the document using their smart phone and enters details such as the load number and/or BOL number. The driver then selects the document type (POD, BOL, Scale Ticket, Freight Bill, Log, Fuel Receipt, Scale Ticket, Invoice, photograph or other).
The image is then sent to the Drive Axle cloud where the image is enhanced using Eleos’ proprietary image enhancement engine. The enhanced document is then imported into the Prophesy Dispatch program and is automatically indexed into the Document Imaging module for easy access within the system.
“The Transportation industry is increasingly a mobile app driven business,” said William Ashburn, Accellos vice president. “Our new integration with Drive Axle allows our users to dynamically view and act upon documentation updates from their drivers in real time.”
In addition to the new Drive Axle mobile scanning app, the Accellos Prophesy DispatchSeries system offers a fully integrated suite of transportation management features. The software handles dispatch, accounting, maintenance, compliance, billing, driver pay and everything in between. Prophesy DispatchSeries also works with QuickBooks, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Peachtree, MAS/90 and most popular accounting software packages.
