TRANSFLO Mobile+ enhanced to display fuel network with real-time pricing on map of delivery route
TAMPA, Florida, March 1, 2016 – Pegasus TransTech, the leading mobile and business process automation provider to the transportation industry, has signed and implemented Foodliner and Quest Liner, subsidiaries of the McCoy Group, on the TRANSFLO enterprise mobile platform.
Foodliner, one of North America’s largest bulk food-grade carriers, is a longstanding client of Pegasus TransTech document and business process automation services as well as TRANSFLO Express for truck stop scanning. Together with Quest Liner, which transports specialized liquids and chemicals, both companies represent a fleet of more than 1,100 tractor trucks and 2,100 trailers.
With the implementation of TRANSFLO Mobile+, Foodliner will now use the enterprise mobile platform to enhance the commercial driver experience. The company is also the first to integrate company-approved fuel network functionality within the mobile app, highlighting preferred fuel partners with color-coded pins.
“By adding fuel information into the TRANSFLO Mobile+ app, we are eliminating a driver’s need to manually locate fuel stops and reducing out-of-route miles,” said Tim Stueck, Chief Financial Officer of Foodliner. “The change to a mobile platform has simplified our process because drivers now receive immediate mobile updates when we push information rather than waiting for a fuel book to be updated. We are essentially managing both savings and safety through the mobile application.”
Commercial drivers at Foodliner are now managing their entire load from a single app that integrates with the rest of their company’s operation. The company will add fuel stops to a map with the driver’s approved delivery route in the next implementation phase.
“With a clear vision for the future, Foodliner and Quest Liner are leaders in the transportation of bulk food-grade and hazardous chemical products,” added Frank Adelman, Chief Executive Officer of Pegasus TransTech. “The company took advantage of the breadth of the mobile platform while adding their own unique points of data integration. The result has been a better business process and a better driver experience.”
Additionally, TRANSFLO Mobile+ has been enhanced to show negotiated rates and real-time fuel pricing along a driver’s approved delivery route. Together with the existing load tendering capabilities of the mobile app, the combined fuel network functionality launched by Foodliner as well as the new negotiated and real-time pricing displays, are immediately available to all clients.
