Transportation Company Avoids Hiring Pitfalls by Adding SaferWatch™ Carrier Monitoring
Bee-Line Delivery service combines Carrier Monitoring capabilities with its Accellos Prophesy DispatchSeries TMS Software
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – March 13, 2013 – Accellos, a leading provider of supply chain execution software solutions, has issued a case study of Accellos Prophesy DispatchSeries and SaferWatch ™ Carrier Monitoring customer Bee-Line Delivery Service. Bee-Line now handles due diligence in carrier hiring by using the SaferWatch™ integration which monitors and checks carrier ratings and CSA BASICS score every time within the Prophesy Dispatch system.
Founded in 1964, Bee-Line is a growing asset based freight transportation and logistics services company headquartered in Houston, Texas. These operating units provide high-performance, full truckload and intermodal freight transportation; logistics, warehousing and supply chain management services. Bee-Line operates from two terminal locations in Houston and San Antonio providing services throughout the United States and Canada.
A Prophesy DispatchSeries user since 2011 the team at Bee-Line was no stranger to the benefits of automation through transportation software. However when Prophesy introduced its SaferWatch™ integration in late 2012, Matt McMillan, Vice President at Bee-Line, was among the first customers to request a first look at the powerful brokerage tool in action.
“Accellos is committed to providing powerful due diligence tools for our users in all areas of the transportation spectrum, said Senior Vice President/General Manager, Bill Ashburn. Our new SaferWatch integration offers leading edge protection for our brokerage customers. This allows them to automate carrier qualification and monitoring requirements, so that they can focus on generating new business.”
Accellos’ Prophesy Dispatch integration with SaferWatch™ allows transportation brokers to retrieve real-time data on carriers right from within their Prophesy software, be alerted to any compliance issues and maintain a complete record showing due diligence and prevention of negligent hiring.
In September of 2012, Bee-Line added the SaferWatch™ integration to their existing Prophesy DispatchSeries software, and began to see impressive results in both time savings and compliance right away.
“Prior to getting the integration, we spent an enormous amount of time sorting through paperwork and printing out carrier data from the Safety and Fitness Electronic Records System (Safersys.org) site then scanning and filing them with our carrier records to make sure that we were covered from a due diligence standpoint” Vice President Matt McMillan says. “Our carrier relations manager was spending their entire time setting up and monitoring carriers rather than focusing on what they should be, ensuring our carriersare happy and making sure the process is running smoothly.”
