There are many reasons to choose a telemetry and telematics solution that integrates with the systems you already use. Also, choosing a solution that is easy to use simplifies the change management that occurs throughout your company when you roll out technology that impacts operations. Affected people are more inclined to adopt new technology when it makes their day-to-day work easier. Here are five advantages to using a solution that integrates with your systems through a flexible programming interface.

1. Simpler trip management

A telemetry and telematics solution that integrates with your transport management system (TMS) makes dispatch team operations easier. Trips created in your TMS are automatically pushed to drivers’ tablets. Dispatchers can also change existing trips without having to start over from scratch. Stops can be simply added or changed, without losing critical trip information. Drivers’ tablets show updated workflows automatically, eliminating the risk of error.

2. Easy-to-follow workflows

For drivers to be efficient, they need to be able to rely on technology that is easy to use and adapted to their situation. While dispatchers organize work in the TMS, drivers can complete their workflow step by step. Tablets display pick-ups, drop-offs, hours of service, DVIRs and other trip sheet activities on a single screen.

3. Quick, accurate invoicing

Waiting for drivers to return to the office with bills of lading and entering data manually can slow down the invoicing process and increase the risk of error. By using geotracking and automated wait time logging, you have exact data to justify price adjustments to your clients. Drivers scanning bills of lading in real time help you invoice your clients more quickly.

4. Better communication

Communication between drivers and dispatchers is optimized thanks to an instant messaging system. The system is user-friendly for drivers and complies with road safety standards. You no longer need to use the telephone to give drivers critical information. Dispatchers can even check message status.

5. Easier payroll management

Fully integrated solutions make it possible to automate driver payroll. Not only do you save time on administrative tasks, but you also have exact data. Drivers log their activities using the tablet in their trucks, and the system automatically captures their arrival and departure times, location, and distance traveled.
