EBE Technologies, a developer of enterprise business process management applications for transportation, reported that revenue for its 2013 fiscal year increased for the fifth consecutive year by more than 26 percent.
All divisions including financials, logistics and driver services recorded increases in revenues and profitability. A broader portfolio of applications and partnerships contributed to the growth. New client acquisitions led to a 39 percent increase in new sales revenue over 2012.
EBE opened an additional office in San Antonio, Tex., and added several new employees in customer support, implementation, development and sales, in its East Moline, Ill. headquarters.
“EBE continues to reinvent itself adapting to the rapid changes in technology and industry landscape,” said Larry Kerr, president of EBE. “As the demand for more web-based and cloud solutions increased, so did our commitment to expand many of our core client/server solution offering to this platform.”
New mobile applications were released in 2013 to capitalize on the growing use of smart phones and tablets by all personnel including drivers. EBE created a new system, expected to be released first quarter 2014, that allows drivers to image documents and integrate directly with the carrier’s billing, settlements, driver and carrier qualification document management systems.
The system will expedite the delivery and improve accuracy of documentation so drivers can get paid faster, shippers receive status notifications in near-real time, and carriers to shorten billing cycles. “Now, every driver or carrier can upload documents immediately without the need of a separate scanning device in their cab,” said Kerr.
Today, nearly 530 transportation and logistics companies utilize EBE’s flagship products in some capacity.
