PeopleNet and McLeod Announce LoadMaster Driver Profile Management Enhancements

WASHINGTON, D.C. and MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 15, 2014— PeopleNet® (, a Trimble® company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology, today announced a new driver profile management integration feature with McLeod Software’s LoadMaster®. This new feature gives LoadMaster users the ability to auto-generate and add driver profiles directly to the customer’s PeopleNet Fleet Manager account.

Making the announcement at the 2014 McLeod User Conference, PeopleNet Senior Vice President, Randy Boyles said “At PeopleNet we know how important it is to work closely with our customers to enhance their transportation management systems and meet their ever-changing needs. The PeopleNet-McLeod LoadMaster driver profile management enhancement negates the need for adding drivers in both LoadMaster and the PeopleNet Fleet Manager, eliminating double data entry. We’re thrilled that the enhancement will save time for fleet management staff while reducing data entry errors.”

In the 12.1 version of LoadMaster, these enhancements become accessible upon startup of the interface and are available for existing drivers as well as when new drivers are added to McLeod’s LoadMaster system.

“We are excited to share this new driver profile management integration feature in LoadMaster v. 12.1 to help streamline the data entry process for all users,” said Robin Hamlin, Product Manager of Mobilecomm at McLeod.  “Not only will new entries be updated across the PeopleNet Fleet Manager and LoadMaster system, but it will also allow driver profiles to be edited from LoadMaster; making it easier to make driver profile changes promptly.”
