BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — McLeod Software, a provider of dispatch, accounting and enterprise management solutions for trucking and brokerage firms, has added Agent Access For Truckload to its PowerBroker and LoadMaster enterprise management systems. The Agent Access For Truckload module is designed to allow brokers, logistics providers and carriers that dispatch their own trucks to manage those assets from a remote location. The web-based tool provides agents with full capability to manage vehicles without the need to install a full-scale enterprise management system at each location, company officials say.
“We designed the Agent Access For Truckload module in response to the growing popularity of the ‘agent centric’ business model found in fleets and brokerages alike,” said Tom McLeod, president and founder of McLeod Software. “Adding Agent Access to either of our enterprise systems makes it very convenient for the agent because it eliminates the need for special software or networking at his or her remote location. At the same time, it reduces administration and system management processes for the trucking and brokerage companies.”
Agent Access For Truckload provides the ability for single or multiple agents and terminal operations to manage trucks from any computer with a web browser. Without requiring additional hardware or software, users can perform all essential functions required to manage assigned assets, the company says, including filtering loads and trucks assigned to an agent, pre-assigning, un-assigning, dispatching, cancelling dispatches, Y-splitting, issuing driver advances and entering/updating call-ins. In addition , Agent Access For Truckload is designed to allow users to initiate the setup of Driver, Tractor and Trailer Master Files and generate reports on revenue, accounts receivable and other factors specific to their assigned vehicles and loads.
