transflo_mobile_verticalPegasus TransTech Corp. announced that Fraley and Schilling, Inc. has implemented Transflo Mobile to add another convenient, fast and secure method for its drivers to submit documents remotely.

Fraley and Schilling, Inc. operates 435 power units and eight terminal locations in the eastern half of the United States. In business since 1955, the Rushville, Ind.-based flatbed carrier offers a diverse set of services that include dry van, dry bulk tanker, warehousing and third party logistics.

For years, getting paper proof-of-delivery documents to the office to complete billing and payroll was a nuisance, recalls Chip West, vice president. The nuisance became a real problem as the company grew.

“The more paperwork you have, the greater the chances are that you will lose it,” he said.

With the growth of personal, mobile devices like phones and tablets, its drivers can submit documents instantly from inside or outside of the cab. Drivers can download Transflo Mobile for free on their Apple or Android devices.

As an enterprise-grade app, Transflo Mobile has built-in features to ensure that the quality of images remains consistently high. The app instantly detects any defects with an image and will immediately notify the driver to retake an image, if necessary, prior to submission. The app also uses compression techniques that maintain the quality of images while reducing their size.

“Transflo Mobile is another easy and convenient way to take care of paperwork,” West says. “Drivers use it a lot. Overall it has been great.”

“With a majority of drivers now using smart devices, Transflo Mobile gives fleets the option to receive documents within minutes of delivery without having to worry about any tradeoffs in quality, reliability or security,” said Frank Adelman, president and CEO of Pegasus TransTech.

The company also uses Transflo Express truck stop scanning from Pegasus TransTech. With more than 950 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada, Transflo Express is the largest truck stop scanning network.

Drivers hand their documents to a trained cashier at the fuel counter for scanning. In seconds, the documents are sent electronically to the fleet for immediate billing and payroll processing.

Transflo Express and Transflo Mobile has enabled Fraley and Schilling, Inc. to receive documents up to five days earlier than when using manual paper-based process, West says.
