HOUSTON – (BUSINESS WIRE) – PCS Software (PCS), the leading provider of transportation management platforms with AI support for shippers, carriers and brokers in North America, has announced the release of a new AT&M (Asset Tracking & Management) module for our AI TMS platform. The new features provide PCS customers with better fleet-wide management and visibility – without the need for third-party software – for more cost-effective and effective management from any mobile or desktop device.
With AT&M on the PCS AI platform, both freight forwarders and shippers can use the real-time visibility of the location and status of every tractor, trailer and every load. The intuitive user interface uses a simple color code to identify asset status and location on an adjustable map and capture instant, relevant insights on a single screen. Logistics professionals can also stay in constant contact with drivers using in-app communication features such as one-click calls and SMS messages.
“Visibility is critical for today’s operators to ensure quick planning and great customer service. However, operators couldn’t get the level of transparency and insight they need without incorporating a third-party tool,” said Paul Beavers. CTO at PCS Software. “With the comprehensive platform from PCS, customers can now get a single glimpse into fleet activity and instant information to be more efficient and reduce costs – without the hassle of integration.”
Users can access AT&M functions from any device via the PCS Mobile Express app, be it at their desk, in the distribution center (DC) or on site. Organizations can also use the app to minimize maintenance incidents with automated driver vehicle inspection reports (DVIR). Mobile Express DVIR reporting supports 3D image uploading and provides instant visibility of outstanding DVIRs to reduce downtime and manual processes. Device problems are better identified and DVIR problems are automatically imported into the TMS platform.
