BIRMINGHAM, AL (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
McLeod Software has a lot of momentum in the marketplace right now, mainly due to rapid growth over the last few years, which has fueled significant investment in the company’s enterprise application software products. With the release of LoadMaster, PowerBroker, and LoadMaster LTL version 11.2, the company has delivered significant new functionality and business process automation for carriers and logistics companies.
Multicurrency and Canadian Operations
LoadMaster and PowerBroker systems now give McLeod customers the ability to operate with true multiple currency transaction capabilities and non-US taxes. This new capability now makes the McLeod transportation enterprise software solution available for Canadian Transportation and Logistics companies.
Enhanced Capabilities and More Automation for McLeod Customers.
LoadMaster and PowerBroker now include a powerful new Radius Search capability. For brokers, finding the best carrier using the carrier history search now includes a radius search on both the origin and destination for every load to allow them to find the best options quickly. This feature also makes it easier for carriers to find the right backhaul opportunities during their planning process.
A new tab for Market Rate Guidance has been developed for LoadMaster and PowerBroker. This feature makes it simpler for brokers to get rate guidance by combining information from TransCore DAT and Internet Truckstop with the customer’s own historical data on rates for a particular lane in a single easy-to-use location.
The new Continuous Moves feature in PowerBroker makes it easier for brokers to keep their carriers moving by booking them on the next available load, near the next location their tractor is scheduled to deliver out. McLeod has also enhanced the carrier insurance monitoring options in PowerBroker, by adding new integration interfaces with Carrier Performance Check and Internet Truckstop in this release.
LoadMaster and PowerBroker 11.2 deliver enhanced Key Performance Indicator reporting with the expansion of McLeod’s Vital Signs real time KPI reporting feature. There are new built in analytics that help carriers pay closer attention to how many miles their drivers are getting.
New off-the-shelf integration products for a wide array of solutions from the company’s industry partners have been released, including enhancements for Manhattan Associates’ optimization tools, support for batch fuel and check advances from U.S. Bank, expanded capability with TCH fuel purchasing integration, more features for CarrierWeb mobile communications, plus enhanced trailer tracking capabilities from Skybitz.
LoadMaster LTL version 11.2 brings new capabilities to streamline a wide range of day-to-day operations and EDI activities for LTL carriers plus support for the PeopleNet in cab mobile communications system for LTL operations.
