PeopleNet, in partnership with Microdea Inc., has introduced In-Cab Scanning for the transportation industry. This new function provides the capability to scan and transmit documents directly from the cab of a truck
using the technology of Microdea and the power and economical bandwidth of PeopleNet mobile communications.
PeopleNet, based in Minneapolis, Minn., is one of the fastest-growing providers of intelligent onboard communications, GPS and fleet management solutions. Microdea, of Richmond Hill, Ont., Canada, provides Synergize OnRamp integrated work flow and document management.
In-Cab Scanning enables drivers to scan and transmit critical transportation documents such as bills of lading and signed delivery receipts immediately from virtually anywhere. In-Cab Scanning speeds the business cycle for carriers, eliminates the need for truckstop scanning and expedites international border crossings.
"This landmark technology for PeopleNet customers will take carrier business operations to a new level, cutting hours and days from the billing cycle," said Glenn Williams, PeopleNet's senior product manager. "Drivers will be very pleased to avoid unnecessary, unproductive miles used to find scanning locations and waiting in the lines they sometimes find there."
