McLeod Software Releases Version 18.1 of LoadMaster Enterprise and PowerBroker
Today McLeod Software is releasing Version 18.1, another major functional release of its flagship products, LoadMaster Enterprise and PowerBroker.
May 21, 2018 - BIRMINGHAM, AL - New capabilities and functionality have been added to McLeod Software’s solutions for brokers and 3PL’s, for truckload carriers, and for LTL and final mile operations. McLeod is continuing the rapid pace of product development investments that have made us the leader in ERP solutions for transportation providers.
Making Dispatch Operations Easier and Faster with Greater Visibility
Version 18.1 includes changes in the LoadMaster and PowerBroker dispatch operations to help users see, understand, and act on the information they need. Now the role based user interface for the operations team presents a more comprehensive and concise view, to help those users manage the company’s current freight activity.
Integration with the TIA 3PL Market Report
PowerBroker has a new interface to help McLeod customers who participate in the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) 3PL Market Report survey to easily submit and automate the requested necessary data. McLeod Software is the first to provide a TMS interface with preconfigured metrics. This interface is complete with predefined metrics used by the TIA to compile monthly data for their quarterly report. Until now, participation in the survey has been done manually. The TIA 3PL Survey interface can be set to run automatically for the previous month, so the information will be transmitted on time, each month, with no user action.
New Capabilities for the McLeod Anywhere Mobile Solution
The McLeod Anywhere mobile application for LoadMaster and PowerBroker users has new capabilities to help users better manage EDI transactions while out of the office, in a meeting, after hours, or on weekends.
New and Enhanced Integration Solutions
A new integration with AT&T Fleet Complete's Fleet Tracker application retrieves tractor and trailer positions into LoadMaster every few minutes, providing dispatchers the ability to track the actual route and near real-time location of assets and loads within LoadMaster.
For EDI customers that use Truckload Wizard analysis services, a feature has been added to the EDI Load Tender and Load Tender Express screens requesting a score on the last study date. PowerBroker now includes integration with Truckstop.com's LoadPay for faster, more accurate carrier settlement processing. LoadPay transactions are created during the carrier settlement processing, as part of transfer to settlement or manually from the Unpaid Settlements screen. Carriers are notified of receiving their settlement payments through the Truckstop.com LoadPay system, and they can use the PayMeNow feature to receive quicker settlement payments. As payments are processed with LoadPay, PowerBroker will be updated to properly reconcile settlement posting.
PowerBroker's PNN Service now supports Trucker Tools Smart Capacity FTP Interface. PowerBroker can be configured to send all available movement information to Smart Capacity in an expanded order format from a traditional load board.
