MCLEOD Software, Birmingham, Alabama, has simultaneously unveiled Version 8 (v8) of LoadMaster, the company's flagship management system for private and for-hire fleets; and PowerBroker, software for non-asset-based brokerage and logistics providers.
Tom McLeod, company president, presented information about the products at the American Trucking Associations Management Conference and Exhibition October 28-31 in Dallas, Texas.
“With new functionality and enhanced features, Version 8 of both LoadMaster and PowerBroker exemplifies our commitment to providing the tools that trucking companies need to better serve their customers,” McLeod said. “As carriers become more sophisticated, they require more specialized software tools to better address the specific needs of the market niches they serve.”
Based extensively on customer input, the upgraded versions of the two products share many enhanced features to help carriers reduce administration time, increase productivity, and provide greater levels of customer service, McLeod said.
The new capabilities include a feature that expands the visibility of order billing and payment detail; new screens that enhance the tracking of over, short, and damaged (OS&D) reports and appointment confirmations; expedient automation of garnishment and claims processing; as well as the ability to automate a wider variety of fuel surcharge scenarios. Additionally, LoadMaster v8 offers a new temperature warning system, while PowerBroker v8 now interfaces with Transcore's Carrierwatch to validate carriers.
“These enhanced products will help our customers to further leverage the power of LoadMaster and PowerBroker to streamline their business operations and gain an advantage in the marketplace,” McLeod said.
