New IES Mobile Dispatch Solution from Trimble Transportation Enables Fleet Professionals to Operate Businesses On the Go

Solution allows Innovative IES, IES Access and Access Plus users to quickly track shipments, assign resources, enter check calls, issue driver advances, and more

NASHVILLE, TN – September 27, 2016 — Trimble Transportation introduced a convenient, powerful mobile web interface that enables fleet professionals using the Innovative IES®, IES Access, and Access Plus TMS solutions to maintain and control a wide range of operational capabilities —  including accepting or rejecting EDI tenders – via their Android or iOS mobile devices. The new interface, IES Mobile® Dispatch, was launched at this week’s PeopleNet® and TMW in.sight User Conference // Expo at Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.

Fleet managers and dispatch professionals can use the IES Mobile Dispatch app to review pending EDI tenders and key details such as customer, “load at,” consignee, and bill-to information, and accept or reject each load without the need to return to the office or log in to their TMS server.

IES Mobile Dispatch empowers users to search for and review available loads, matching them to trailers and drivers. After assigning resources, the user can dispatch the load using the same interface. Other key capabilities include entering mobile check calls for tractors and trailers; reviewing driver information, loads and stops; and advancing funds to a driver.

The solution also offers quick access to customer account information, including directions to business locations.  Users can trace and track customer orders; review related details such as dispatches, stop offs and freight bills; and monitor a range of key performance indicators covering driver status, operating revenue and weekly billing. 

“This powerful new tool allows users to oversee operations, make key decisions and quickly address driver and customer needs, even when they are away from the office or tied up in meetings,” said David Wangler, president of Trimble Transportation. “IES Mobile Dispatch enables fleet professionals to make the right decisions at the right time to grow sales and revenue and increase driver and customer satisfaction.”
