Fleets now have easy-to-use, scanning functionality across a range of mobile devices
ORLANDO – Oct. 23, 2017 — PeopleNet® (www.peoplenetonline.com), a Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) Company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology, today announced that it has expanded its mobile scanning solutions through working with LoadDocs, a company that delivers mobile-first collaborative workflow management systems for logistics and field service companies.
PeopleNet customers interested in mobile scanning solutions can now choose to deploy the LoadDocs mobile app to digitally scan a wide range of documents using a PeopleNet-certified mobile device. On-the-go scanning allows fleets and their drivers improved flexibility in sharing digital versions of paper-based items such as expense reports, inspection reports and bills of lading (BOLs).
“Giving drivers and back office users the ability to send and share digital versions of paper files can help improve efficiencies and productivity across their entire fleet,” said Eric Witty, vice president, product for PeopleNet. “Expanding our scanning solution set is part of PeopleNet’s larger commitment to enable customers to realize increased connectivity and streamlined communication.”
LoadDocs’ scanning solution is available to customers who use PeopleNet-certified Android-based in-cab displays and mobile devices, in conjunction with a PeopleNet Mobile Gateway (PMG) or PeopleNet Connected Gateway (PCG). Through the app, users can scan documents with the camera on their device; no additional hardware is required. The mobile app provides an intuitive user experience with page detection, automatic cropping and high-quality image capture across a range of devices.
“Developing solutions specifically aimed at increasing visibility and efficiencies is at the core of what we do,” said Will Chu, co-founder and CEO at LoadDocs. “PeopleNet is a leader in the fleet mobility industry and we look forward to helping their customers improve how they share information across their fleet.”
The expanded set of scanning solutions was announced at American Trucking Associations (ATA) Management Conference & Exhibition (MCE), held in Orlando from October 21-25, 2017.
