PCS Software Quarterly Innovation Update – Third Quarter 2021 | Business
HOUSTON – (BUSINESS WIRE) – October 20, 2021–
PCS Software (PCS), the leading provider of AI-powered transportation management platform (TMS) for shippers, carriers and brokerage firms in North America, continued its innovation efforts at the third quarter by implementing new capabilities, announcing strategic partnerships with industry and streamlining operations for its customers. These efforts have focused on four key areas: automation, mobility, payments and user experience (UX).
Throughout the quarter, PCS Software enabled more third-party integrations and subsequently added several new features to the platform that help deliver true end-to-end automation. First, PCS now offers its customers access to Business Intelligence by giving them additional data and interface capabilities. By leveraging Business Intelligence, shippers and carriers will no longer have to manage their data manually, but instead will have unlimited access to all data and the ability to automatically distill key data across their networks to create reports and personalized dashboards.
Additionally, PCS has fully integrated with QuickBooks, TruckerTools, Project 44, and GeoTab to bring together functionality from multiple systems into one easy-to-use interface, including:
- QuickBooks allows automatic transmission of accounting transactions and instant processing for accounting teams,
- TruckerTools and Project44 both provide real-time tracking capabilities for contract carriers, and
- GeoTab Electronic Registration Device (ELD) compliance products and services are now accessible through the PCS mobile app and are fully integrated with the TMS platform.
To detach logistics professionals from their desks and take management on the go, PCS has added new features to its Mobile Express application, including Asset Tracking & Management and Mobile Dispatch. Now office staff and dispatchers can access their tractor, trailer and load locations through the mobile app rather than just on their desks. In addition, dispatchers can now send directly from their mobile device.
During the third quarter, PCS launched PCS Payments, giving users the ability to pay online, eliminating the need for manual processes such as submitting checks. Once paid, the records are automatically posted to the accounting system, which simplifies back-end operations for users.
New features have been added to the tool. In addition to the credit card payment method, customers can also pay invoices through ACH – a type of electronic bank-to-bank payment – and have the option to re-invoice (top up) processing fees to end customers.
Finally, to improve the user experience, PCS launched a redesigned Customer Portal that allows customers to log into the portal directly from the website and create and track support tickets and system change requests. New customers also now have the ability to track implementation status from the portal.
âThe supply chain landscape continues to evolve rapidly and faces challenges unique to the industry. To help our customers make their businesses easier to run, PCS Software understands that our platform must continually deliver the latest and greatest features and experiences, âsaid Paul Beavers, CTO at PCS Software. âAs peak season approaches, innovations around these core features – automation, mobility and contactless payments – will be critical to ensuring business success on the road. “
