Waccamaws Advanced Technologies Overview

PeopleNet

Our onboard truck computer, PeopleNet is a web based communications application that provides:

  • GPS coordinates allow us to monitor exact location with pinpoint accuracy.
  • Essential communications link for customer orders and billing program.  Loading and unloading information is sent to the driver and returned to the office for processing.
  • Fully automates driver hours-of-service records.
  • PerformX feature continuously monitors engine activity to identify and help remedy mechanical issues, or make adjustments to improve fuel mileage results.

 

Simmons

Store product inventory management system:

  • Provides automatic updates for store tank inventory levels and incorporates this information into other existing programs for daily planning and scheduling activities.
  • Level settings are based on actual tank size, sales volumes, and by specific product.
  • Program attributes effectively eliminate store outages, barring industry supply issues, etc.
  • Terrific tool for capturing sales history for seasonal trends (i.e. beach locations), or by a special period of time such as major holiday surges.
  • Simmons interacts seamlessly with our dispatch and billing program TMW.

 

TMW Suites

TMW helps to manage our customer orders, scheduling, freight invoicing, and payroll activities.

  • Information from PeopleNet and Simmons is seamlessly transferred into TMW.
  • Customer order details created by Dispatch are forwarded to the driver in his truck.
  • Subsequent loading and unloading data is returned to TMW by the driver.
  • TMW automatically completes the customer billing cycle.
  • Customers are granted access to our TMW Document Imaging Program.  All delivery tickets, terminal bill of ladings, freight invoices, and other related documents are scanned, indexed and can be retrieved as single item.  This information can be viewed online or received by email.
