CLEVELAND, OH (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
MacroPoint, creators of patented freight tracking software designed to give third-party visibility into load status, today announced an enhanced integration with TMWSuite® software from TMW Systems Inc., a leading provider of transportation management software solutions. The newly integrated capabilities automate several load tracking processes.
“The integration between MacroPoint software and TMWSuite now provides greater visibility into load location for brokers, carriers and 3PLs using TMW transportation management software,” said Glynn Spangenberg, senior vice president/general manager of MacroPoint. “The combined solution is ideal for gaining expanded visibility to brokered loads or to loads carried by owner-operators or other third-party drivers.”
The MacroPoint software integration with TMWSuite enables carriers to send load tracking requests directly to a driver’s phone from the transportation management system (TMS). TMWSuite can then display vehicle location tracking data within its software screens. The updated integration with MacroPoint load tracking software gives broker, shipper and 3PL users of TMWSuite automated capabilities such as:
- Tracking multiple loads by customer, business segment or a range of parameters can be automated using customizable filters to replace manual tracking of individual loads.
- Automatic stop, arrival and departure events are now available, in addition to in-route location updates.
“Our newly integrated capabilities with MacroPoint mean less data entry and less time spent setting up and managing load tracking processes,” said Brad Young, Industry Principal, Brokerage and Asset-Light solutions at TMW Systems. “The modern architecture offers a faster, simpler and more accurate way for our broker and 3PL customers to gain near real-time shipment visibility and to improve their service offerings for shippers.”
Used to track all loads from multiple devices and systems including flip phones, smart phones, ELD’s/Telematics, EDI, and TMS, MacroPoint’s patented location tracking software can provide third parties with per-load status and location visibility to shipments. With MacroPoint, brokers, 3PLs and shippers have real-time location tracking, on-time delivery monitoring, and arrival and departure notifications that enhance the efficiency and profitability of their operations.
