PeopleNet announced a new PeopleNet Automated Workflow integration with TMWSuite from TMW Systems, designed specifically to boost efficiency throughout crude/tanker fleet operations.
According to the company, the new tailored workflow application reflects this segment’s unique information needs in custom forms that integrate with TMWSuite. Dispatchers populate order/load information into forms that prompt drivers through a queue designed to gather required data, minimizing driver interaction and ensuring collection of accurate information.
PeopleNet’s first application in its Crude Hauler Suite, introduced at last year’s ATA Conference, incorporates oilfield regulations for hours of service and sleeper berth into PeopleNet’s electronic logs application eDriver Logs. As a result, all wait and sleeper berth times are eliminated from the 14-hour on-duty, so drivers don’t log wait times at a natural gas or oil well site or sleeper berth times, regardless of whether or not it is a valid split.
The new integration comes on the heels of several new and enhanced enterprise integrations between TMWSuite and PeopleNet, including: customizable looping and branching for embedded decision-tree forms; customizable arrive/depart stop profiles for complete monitoring of terminal stop behavior; “load offer” screen editing that allows dispatchers to select or deselect stops and send an updated dispatch that reflects changes; and signature capture acceptance into TMWSuite for automating and expediting billing immediately after a customer receives a load to improve cash flow.
