Pegasus TransTech, a provider of document scanning applications to the transportation industry, has released an enhanced version of Transflo Mobile. This solution allows users to scan and submit delivery documents instantly using only a smartphone.
The enhanced Transflo Mobile app is free to drivers who send paperwork electronically to participating carriers or for carriers who send paperwork to participating brokers. Transflo Mobile speeds document delivery allowing drivers and carriers to capture and send high-quality images of proof-of-delivery documents, logs, invoices, and receipts using an iPhone or Android smartphone.
The latest version improves the general optimization of document images, resulting in crisper and higher quality images. To ensure that images are legible, this new version of Transflo Mobile automatically provides an additional electronic quality check – right on the smartphone.
The readability of each image is evaluated, scored, and validated before submission. If the user captures an image that has questionable focus or is not legible, the app prompts the user to review or re-take the image.
Transflo Mobile has a special algorithm for enhancing images that are traditionally difficult to read such as multi-page colored documents or carbon copy forms. It also allows users to lighten and darken the document image which is especially important for colored documents that have varying hues and shades of text.
Other enhancements that improve the quality of images before they are sent to carriers or brokers include a camera default setting that automatically turns the flash to the “on” position.
The app allows users to add applicable data in customer specified fields for each document, auto-crops and enhances the image, and then compresses it for fast, easy transmission.
No training is required to use Transflo Mobile. A driver or carrier simply downloads the app, completes registration and follows self-explanatory prompts. A carrier does the same when sending to a broker. All the necessary documents and data entries will be sent together in one transmission.
Drivers and carriers who previously downloaded the app can select "update" in the App Store to upgrade their Transflo Mobile app to the latest version. An upgraded Android version with all of these same features is expected to be released soon.
