Accellos, a provider of supply chain execution software systems, announced an integration between its Prophesy Dispatch transportation management software (TMS) and Rand McNally’s in-cab mobile fleet management devices.
The new integration is designed to allow dispatchers and drivers to focus more on their jobs and less on the legwork of communicating load information. When a dispatcher creates a load, all necessary load data is automatically sent to Rand McNally’s in-cab device, and in turn, all confirmations, arrivals/departures and other updates sent back by the driver are automatically processed by the software. Meanwhile, GPS position tracking gives visibility over the fleet.
Integration via Rand McNally Connect allows load information to be sent automatically to the drivers in cab device including origin, address, city, state, destination and goods information including weight, pieces, pallets; scheduled pick up date; and delivery date and time. It also enables the driver to send and receive items such as actual arrival time, departure time, bill of lading number and actual goods and quantities broken down into weight, pallet, pieces and trailer number.
The integration includes Rand McNally’s TPC, TND 760, and HD 100 fleet management devices.
