PeopleNet, which provides onboard communications and fleet management systems, said Monday it is integrating its eDriver Logs automated driver log application with LoadMaster dispatch and enterprise software from McLeod Software.
The eDriver Logs system is a DOT-compliant automated driver log solution and an automated, Web-based system. LoadMaster is the flagship system from McLeod Software, a provider of dispatch and accounting fleet management software to the trucking industry.
Before integration, dispatchers had to leave LoadMaster computer screens to get driver hours information and had to access the PeopleNet Fleet Manager application or message the driver.
Now driver hours information provided wirelessly from the truck cab can be displayed on LoadMaster screens where it appears alongside other critical load and driver information, the company said.
