Prophesy Transportation Solutions Inc., an Accellos company, released DispatchSeries version 6 which includes an enhanced load scheduler, last-commodity tracking, trailer washout tracking and custom alerts.
In addition to assigned and enroute loads, the Load Scheduler now depicts completed loads, says Prophesy. Users can view up to eight days of load history in the Load Scheduler.
The system automatically tracks the last commodity hauled in a trailer and displays this information to the user at the time of load assignment. If multiple commodities were hauled on a single load, all commodities are displayed. In addition, the system will track and document trailer washouts. Alerts can be configured to notify users that a washout is required after hauling a specific commodity. Information regarding the times, locations, and types of washouts that have been performed on each trailer is stored for reporting and alerts.
The Alert Center feature allows users to create custom alerts to enforce business rules and monitor driver appointments (in addition to standard alerts present in earlier versions of the system), Prophesy adds. “These custom alerts appear when a rule is violated or a metric falls outside a defined threshold, as in the case of excess deadhead percentage on a load or insufficient revenue per loaded mile.”
