Platform Science, an enterprise IoT fleet management platform, has partnered with Vector’s (previously LoadDocs) mobile-first workflow, document capture and transportation management software.
Platform Science’s open platform allows fleets to pick and choose which applications they need to improve efficiency and conduct day-to-day operations. The new partnership with Vector adds a document scanning application to the Platform Science ecosystem.
The Vector web and mobile application allows users to access and transmit load documents into a searchable platform available to anyone, anywhere. Drivers can capture signature and document scanning via the app and toggle back into workflow with a click of a button.
Vector eliminates the need for a physical paper trail for users, but also allows drivers access to all documents they have previously uploaded. If drivers are stopped by the Department of Transportation or if there is an issue with a load, they can populate supporting documents on the spot.
The Platform Science IoT solution enables in-cab computing. Applications are still accessible in areas of little to no reception which means Vector is able to store and save information even if it cannot connect to the server at that time. With these two data-processing and securing strategies combined, the risk of losing or not being able to access information is significantly reduced and allows drivers to continue their work.
