HighJump announced that Prophesy Dispatch TMS and KeepTruckin will integrate their electronic logs and fleet management platforms.
The integration is an effort from HighJump and KeepTruckin to enable truckload carriers to comply with the FMCSA's ELD rule while streamlining operations.
By December 2017, the FMCSA is requiring the trucking industry to implement ELDs for accurate hours of service tracking. The combination of the KeepTruckin ELD solution with Prophesy Dispatch is meant to provide small-to-mid-sized trucking companies comply with the ELD mandate but improve operational efficiency. HOS data from the KeepTruckin ELD system is imported into Prophesy Dispatch. As a result, dispatchers have full HOS visibility and reporting capabilities via the Prophesy Dispatch user interface to ensure compliance.
The integration also enables eLog capabilities that increase efficiency and enhance customer service for truckload carriers. Using the HOS and vehicle location data from KeepTruckin, Prophesy Dispatch fully automates the creation of check calls and ETA calculations, along with mileage imports for IFTA fuel tax reporting. Additionally, dispatchers receive notifications if a load is running late, allowing them to manage customer expectations and plan accordingly.
