HighJump, a global provider of supply chain network solutions, announced significant enhancements to the integration between their Prophesy Dispatch TMS product and MacroPoint, creator of patented freight tracking software designed to give shippers, brokers, 3PLs and carriers real-time visibility into loads.
Major enhancements include full integration to in-cab devices for tracking purposes, and enhancements within Prophesy Dispatch which enable the use of the MacroPoint solution to track both company drivers and owner-operators.
The integrated solution provides transportation companies with a way to automatically track loads including arrival, departure from stops and GPS position updates. The seamless interface with Prophesy Dispatch automatically passes load info to MacroPoint to eliminate the need for re-entry. The system then automatically brings load data back into Prophesy Dispatch including arrival, departure and GPS position data. Check calls are automatically created in dispatch and load ETA's are automatically updated. The actual route the driver is taking can also be mapped in the Prophesy Dispatch software.
“We are pleased to announce these powerful enhancements for our brokerage and trucking company users,” said HighJump CMO, Bill Ashburn. “The unique technology provided by MacroPoint allows brokers complete visibility of the loads they have contracted out, providing both real-time accuracy and the ability to address issues as they occur.”
“Providing freight brokers, shippers, third party logistic providers and carriers with real-time locations of the loads they’ve contracted out is an essential part of having complete visibility across a supply chain,” said Robert Derin, director of product management for MacroPoint. “The ability to automatically track loads using MacroPoint is a powerful tool for enhancing customer service and addressing issues that may occur. We are looking forward to our continued partnership with HighJump and its customers to enable our seamless load tracking solution.”
