Exclusive PeopleNet-ACS Partnership to Offer Integrated In-Cab Scanning and Indexing for BLU In-Cab PC
Reduces document management and processing costs by 25 percent over truck-stopscanning and streamlines driver and back-office workflow to improve fleet productivity
LAS VEGAS, Mar. 1, 2010-PeopleNet® (www.peoplenetonline.com), a provider of innovative Internet-based and integrated onboard computing and mobile communications systems for effective fleet management, and Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (ACS), a XeroxCompany (NYSE: XRX) today announced that its new partnership will soon provide a new 100 percent in-cab imaging solution for the PeopleNet BLU™ in-cab PC. The announcement was made at the Truckload Carriers Association conference being held in Las Vegas, Feb. 28-March 3. PeopleNet Product Manager Kirsten Lester explained, "In-cab Scanning Powered by ACS TripPak SCANNING™ offers fleets an additional way to quickly and easily reduce operating costs and improve fleet productivity. Combining in-cab scanning and automated indexing reduces document management and processing costs by 25 percent over traditional truck-stop scanning. In addition, the elimination of paper speeds up driver and back-office workflow."
The convenience of in-cab scanning and automated indexing eliminates truck-stop dependence, expedites customer billing, and eliminates costs and time associated with:
- Manual data entry by drivers
- Manual image association with load information
- Outsourced indexing
- Out-of-route miles for a driver to find a location that supports current method of trip-document submission
The combination of these two technology organizations promotes a more seamless integration from the cab to the back office, which drives greater ROI and advances paperless environments. In-Cab Scanning Powered by ACS TripPak SCANNING merges the power of PeopleNet's rich communications and PACOS® geofencing and automated messaging integration with ACS's existing imaging integrations and document management infrastructure.
ACS Division Vice President and General Manager Kelley Walkup said, "In-cab scanning gives drivers the added convenience of completing their paperwork without ever having to leave their truck. Giving drivers another way to quickly and easily submit their paperwork improves the bottom line for any carrier."
