TAC Insight released Fast-Weigh Dispatch, a cloud-based truck dispatching system that streamlines the construction materials transportation process – including truck and hauler scheduling, dispatch rostering, loadout, ticketing, GPS tracking, proof of delivery and more.
Designed to work in coordination with the Fast-Weigh ticketing and bulk material management platform, Fast-Weigh Dispatch provides a single integrated system to manage material requests, ticketing, fulfillment and tracking. Now, with Fast-Weigh Dispatch and proof of delivery, producers, haulers, contractors and Department of Transportation inspectors can share tickets electronically while monitoring deliveries in real time.
“More and more producers, contractors and haulers are looking to move away from paper and switch to electronic ticketing,” says Mike Mendiola, founder and technology director for Fast-Weigh. “We believe by providing a single platform for scale ticketing, dispatching, order management, billing and truck payables, we can help companies streamline their operations, become more efficient and, ultimately, save both time and money.”
Designed for both Android and iOS, TAC Insight says the Fast-Weigh Dispatch mobile app can be installed in trucks or loaded on driver mobile phones in a matter of minutes – eliminating the need for additional tablets or other hardware.
From the app, drivers can clock in, view their active dispatches and navigate to pickup and delivery sites via their smartphone. They can also work with existing Fast-Weigh tickets or generate their own mobile load tickets using Bluetooth-enabled printers.
In addition, drivers can input tickets from third-party ticketing sources. With TAC Insight’s cloud Dispatch Dashboard, dispatchers can manage all request fulfillment and rostering data from one place and transmit new information directly to driver mobile devices in real time.
