PCS Software Releases Express 17

Latest Version of PCS's Enterprise Transportation Management System Now Available

THE WOODLANDS, TX--(Marketwire - February 10, 2010) - PCS Software Inc., a leading provider of dispatch, accounting, and transportation management software, today announced the release of the 17th version of the Express Transportation Management System. The new version is now available to the over 1,000 carriers and freight brokers now using Express by PCS Software.

One of among dozens of new features in PCS's Express TMS is the all new interface to the Department of Energy, for Fuel Surcharge pricing. Express will automatically download weekly national and regional fuel price data from the Department of Energy. The Fuel Surcharge rates will automatically be updated for each customer, and you can set when the new pricing goes into effect for each customer.

There are also many new features and improvements for Express's Document Imaging System. The imaging system now integrates with Express Fax. Express Fax allows drivers to fax load documents to a toll free number assigned to the carrier or freight broker. Documents sent in by drivers will appear in the Express Imaging system where they can be quickly and easily indexed for billing purposes. The imaging system can also receive load documents transmitted from PCS's Driver Scan application. Driver Scan installs on the driver's laptop or notebook with a mobile scanner and Internet access. These two new features allow PCS users to invoice shipments the same day they deliver, without the expense of an additional paid service at the truck stop.

One of the most notable new features is the Mobile Express Smart Phone interface for drivers. Drivers can automatically receive load info as they are dispatched, and can also send statuses and check calls back to dispatch, from their phone. With Mobile Express, companies using Express will no longer have to verbally dispatch drivers. Mobile Express runs on any cell phone that has a web browser.

Other new features include improved abilities for agent-based transportation companies, enhancements to the XpressTrax freight tracking and document retrieval interface for shippers, and a recurring loads system that automatically books scheduled, repeat freight.

PCS Software has been developing advanced software for the Trucking Industry since 1997. Focusing on Enterprise Level Integrated Operations and Accounting Management Systems, PCS Software is a top tier software provider serving over a thousand transportation companies in the United States and Canada.
