Partnership enhances functionality for accessing/securing capacity, simplifying in-transit tracking, managing engagement with truckload carriers via Open API connection
RESTON, VA, – AUGUST 31, 2021 – Trucker Tools is again expanding the availability of its industry-leading digital freight management platform, announcing a new integration with Houston, Texas-based PCS Software, which provides an AI-powered technology suite used by thousands of shippers, carriers and brokers to plan, manage and execute end-to-end transportation services.
Through this integration, PCS Software customers can leverage Trucker Tools’ proven web-based and mobile driver apps which incorporate three products. The Trucker Tools mobile app embeds GPS features to gain real-time, updated visibility into in-transit load status. Smart Capacity® predictive freight-matching optimally sources and matches available loads with trucks, and Book-it-Now® one-click automated booking, automates load booking and confirmation, transforming a thirty to sixty minute manual process into one that occurs in a minute or less.
“Data is the new economic fuel driving business. Shippers and brokers gain tremendous advantage through platforms that automate processes and centralize critical decision-making intelligence on one platform. Integrating with Trucker Tools helps us deliver robust and proven digital freight management tools that complement our platform, creating new opportunities for our customers to reduce costs, drive efficiencies and increase carrier engagement,” explained Anthony Vitiello, senior director of marketing, product, and content for PCS Software.
PCS Software’s brokerage customers also gain access to a larger pool of truckload capacity through the 1.5 million truckers on the Trucker Tools mobile driver app and can leverage PCS’s embedded artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve management metrics that drive efficiencies and savings opportunities.
Trucker Tools CEO, Prasad Gollapalli emphasized that for truckload carriers, partnering with PCS Software delivers access to the extensive volumes of freight managed on the PCS platform, improving opportunities for truckers to match the right high-quality load in the right lane at the right time.
“Through integrating PCS with our predictive freight-matching, we expand opportunities for available load options that match the truckers’ preferences, while simplifying bookings, confirmations and settlement processes,” said Gollapalli, adding, “By combining a leading TMS platform with a suite of well-developed and market-accepted mobile apps for truckload carriers, we’re driving meaningful digitization bringing carriers and brokers closer together, sustaining effective engagement, and helping move beyond outdated, inefficient manual processes.”
