Acellos integrates dispatch tool with location service

Colorado Springs, Colo. – Acellos is integrating its Prophesy Dispatch TMS (transportation management system) productnwith MacroPoint, a service that provides location tracking for brokered loads. The integrated solution provides transportation brokers with a way to automatically track loads including arrival, departure from stops and GPS position updates.

The seamless interface with Prophesy Dispatch automatically passes load info to the MacroPoint site to eliminate the need for re-entry. The system then automatically brings load data back into Prophesy Dispatch including arrival, departure and GPS position data. Check calls are automatically created in dispatch and load ETA's are automatically updated. The actual route the driver is taking can also be mapped in the Prophesy Dispatch software.

“We are pleased to announce this powerful capability for our brokerage users, said Prophesy senior VP and general manager William Ashburn. “The unique technology provided by MacroPoint allows brokers complete visibility of the loads they have contracted out, providing both real-time accuracy and the ability to address issues as they occur.”
