McLeod Software is releasing Version 17.2 of its flagship products, LoadMaster Enterprise and PowerBroker adding new features for paying drivers, managing assignments, and new integrations.
More Flexible Ways to Compensate Drivers
LoadMaster’s Driver Settlement module has been enhanced to enable a wider variety of compensation options, or combinations of those options, for company drivers in both LTL and truckload operations. Any company driver can be paid hourly, by the mile, by the trip, or as salary payroll. Those pay options may now be configured by the trip for drivers who might be compensated differently based on the specific work activity in which they are engaged. Any driver’s work hours can be entered through the native LoadMaster timecard functions and screens.
Greater Visibility and Insight for Driver Managers and Fleet Managers
LoadMaster’s Order Planning has a new set of filtering capabilities that allow fleet or driver managers better visibility for each driver’s current and pre-assigned movements. These users can easily see their entire fleet or driver group, as well as all preassigned movements for each driver in that group. This view is especially helpful when multiple pre-assignments are planned for drivers or tractors.
New and Enhanced LoadMaster Integration Solutions
LoadMaster now includes integration with a number of new Mobile Communications solutions. EROAD, Forward Thinking Systems, KeepTruckin, and Teletrac Navman Director have been added. The existing integration solutions with Coretex iBright and Omnitracs Enterprise Services have been enhanced.
The LoadMaster Safety Module now offers integration with Lytx DriveCam to supply driver and tractor associations plus start times from the LoadMaster system for video recording in Lytx.
The Vehicle Maintenance Solution from RTA Fleet Management Software has been integrated with LoadMaster to both pass and receive vehicle maintenance information.
An interactive fuel integration with Multi Service has been added and enhancements to Comdata’s interactive fuel integration are also part of the Version
