SEATTLE, Wash. — Zonar, the leader in smart fleet management technology, today announced Zonar Docs, an image capturing solution designed to reduce the time it takes to deliver paperwork, including invoices, receipts, and more to dispatch.
The new cloud-based technology is easy to use, improves overall operational efficiency for carriers, enables drivers to be paid faster, and is a perfect economical alternative for fleet managers looking to avoid the higher cost associated with TMS solutions.
“Zonar Docs is a natural addition to our smart fleet management offerings and reduces the substantial paperwork burden currently placed on fleet managers and drivers alike,” said Larry Jordan, chief product officer at Zonar. “The new technology builds on Zonar’s aim to streamline fleet management processes.”
Zonar Docs works with Zonar Connect—a next-generation tablet that instantly connects truck drivers and fleet managers—by using real-time mobile technology. Zonar Docs is an automated process and reduces the time it takes paperwork to reach dispatch. The solution provides proof-of-load delivery for fleet managers and creates a web portal for dispatch to track and download materials. Zonar Docs is designed for use in small to medium-sized fleets.
Drivers log into the Zonar Docs application on the Zonar Connect tablet using Single Sign On technology with their driver ID and pin. Within the app they are led through a step-by-step guide for submitting paperwork for a delivery where they add photo documentation and submit to the database server from the road. Once the document is submitted dispatch is able to view the material in the Admin Portal and approve it in real-time ultimately increasing operational efficiency for the fleet.
