iGLobal LLC and McLeod Software Announce Completed Integration
Feb.16, 2015 – iGlobal LLC, a provider of world class fleet management and in-cab document imaging solutions, and McLeod Software, a leading provider of transportation, accounting, brokerage, and document management solutions, announced today that they have completed the integration between iGlobal’s suite of Mobile Data Terminals and McLeod’s LoadMaster Enterprise Dispatch Software via its Symphony Mobile Communications Interface.
“We are extremely excited to have a partner like McLeod,” said Eric Bauer, President of iGlobal. “With this integration, we give our mutual customers a complete mobile office.”
McLeod customers who are using the iGlobal fleet management system will now be able to get automated position updates, two-way text messaging with canned and customizable forms, real time electronic driver log status, along with auto arrival and departure updates.
McLeod’s DocumentPower Enterprise customers will also have instantaneous access to critical billing and payroll documents scanned through iGlobal’s signature In-Cab Scanning system. This integration is already creating waves in the transportation industry with clients like Paramount Freight Systems.
“The iGlobal system has been key in our ability to grow and retain our owner operator fleet,” said Trent Dye, Paramount Freight’s Director of Operations. “Their in-cab scanning system provides an easy way for the contractors to send the critical billing and payroll documents. The two-way messaging gives us the ability to communicate their weekly settlements during the week, allowing enough time so they can message back and notify us of anything that might have been left out. Now with iGlobal’s integration to McLeod’s dispatch and document imaging system, which we use in the back office, the accuracy and timeliness will only improve.”
“We are excited for the opportunities that this opens up for iGlobal with current and future McLeod Software users,” said Bauer. “We feel McLeod offers one of the most complete transportation management systems on the market today. We know that any company looking to replace its current in-cab system or implementing one for the first time relies heavily upon the ability of their drivers and back office personnel to send and receive updated information throughout the day. Our integration with McLeod allows a unique alternative when looking for a system to put in the truck.”
Robin Hamlin, McLeod Project Manager for integration of Mobile Communications applications, states, “The iGlobal interface for the LoadMaster Truckload application gives customers the ability to communicate critical information regarding dispatch assignments to their drivers in a timely manner. The beta testing has shown that the integration provides customers the critical near real time information needed to better manage the progress of current loads’ estimated time of arrival, as well as out of route and driver detention occurrences. Additionally, the visibility to current available driver hours of service data within LoadMaster allows customers to use the Driver Feasibility feature in LoadMaster to improve driver load assignments, maximize driver utilization and reduce late deliveries.”
