Maven Machines, a fleet management and telematics software company in the commercial trucking and transportation industry, announced Maven Workflow, a software platform that allows users to create flexible custom forms and stop-based, location-based workflows, the company said in a release.
This platform is part of Maven’s flexible product suite that allows fleets to manage drivers and trips while meeting each user’s unique set of operational needs. Maven Workflow complements Maven’s suite of enterprise fleet management software solutions, including Maven Fleet, Maven Dispatch, Maven Inbound, and Maven ELD.
According to Maven, the new solution focuses on the flexibility of fleet and driver workflows — a long-standing pain point for managers, planners, dispatchers, and drivers alike. Maven Workflow provides a step-by-step workflow guide at each stop a driver makes, showing necessary information and forms configured for that specific stop type, location, and customer need. The type and sequence of the forms are customizable and easy to integrate within Maven’s mobile application and inventory of fleet management solutions.
Maven also eliminates outdated mail and email-based communication methods with real-time, streamlined messaging and workflow processes, according to the company. Drivers can now easily access important workflow information about their trips and stops right on their devices, wherever or whenever they need it.
With the new workflow platform, fleet managers can also garner real-time insights into drivers and trips to ensure efficiency, safety, and increased productivity. With public APIs and the capability to instantaneously update a fleet’s transportation management software with live data, combined with Maven’s suite of digital solutions and mobile application, managers can also achieve completely paperless billing, hours-of-service compliance, and driver management in one platform.
“Maven Workflow is an intuitive driver workflow solution that provides customized, step-by-step workflow layouts and forms for each unique situation or customer,” said Alexa Ekberg, a product manager at Maven Machines. “Different workflow options can be used for each stop, and drivers can work smarter, not harder. Managers can gain insight into a drivers’ trips, vehicle movement, and ETAs. This boosts fleet productivity as well as improves the overall driver experience.”
