After indexing and classification, your documents are stored in electronic filing cabinets that are defined and secured based on your storage and security needs. The filing cabinets are defined based on the types of documents you plan to store and the indexes are defined based on how you want to search and retrieve the documents. Security can be applied at the cabinet, document type or index level to control access to your documents.
Storing documents electronically in DocumentPower provides the following benefits:
- Reduced costs for document storage and labor related to filing and retrieving documents
- Improved document search and retrieval times
- Improved disaster recovery and security through centralized control and management
Since DocumentPower and LoadMaster are integrated, documents stored in DocumentPower are easily accessible in LoadMaster throughout the application in context with the part of the application your users are viewing, like orders, bills, trips, drivers, carriers, or customers.
In today’s highly competitive trucking industry, companies are looking to handle more volume with the same amount of staff and to reduce their billing lag. McLeod is helping companies meet these and many other goals with DocumentPower, Rendition Processing, FlowLogix and Logix Solutions.
Fast, Context-Based Document Retrieval
In addition to document capture and storage, DocumentPower provides document retrieval capabilities that allow you to more rapidly search for and retrieve needed documents to perform research or provide a customer with a quick response using email, fax, print or FTP. DocumentPower provides improved search and retrieval times which leads to increased staff productivity and improved customer service.
Quick, Configurable Billing
Rendition Processing uses the document management and workflow capabilities contained in DocumentPower to allow you to create customer specific rules related to what billing documents are required, what document will be included with the invoice to the customer and if the documents will be printed, emailed, faxed or sent using FTP. Rendition Processing results in reduced labor, paper, envelope, postage, printer, toner, and copier costs and reduces processing time significantly.

Custom Business Process Automation with FlowLogix
The McLeod FlowLogix visual workflow tool will allow the creation of workflows and business process automation solutions across the LoadMaster and PowerBroker systems. By using the visual design and testing tools, McLeod customers can create their own custom workflows to support automated business processes across the entire spectrum of their enterprise.
FlowLogix not only offers an easy to use visual design interface, it includes built-in testing and integration tools that allow it to work with outside systems and data beyond the McLeod applications. Our customers can use this powerful new toolset to implement, test, deploy, and maintain their own customized business process solutions within the McLeod systems environment that, in the past, would have required expensive and complex custom modifications.
