HighJump and PeopleNet Announce Enhanced Mobile Communications Integration

New Capabilities Include Real-Time Load, Goods, and Arrival/Departure Information Exchange Within Popular Prophesy Dispatch Solution

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - June 24, 2015) - HighJump, a global provider of supply chain software, and PeopleNet, a leading provider of fleet mobility technology, today announced the release of an enhanced integration between HighJump's Prophesy Dispatch Transportation Management Solution and PeopleNet's mobile communications interface.

The interface between Prophesy Dispatch and PeopleNet's mobile communications solution is designed to allow dispatchers and drivers to focus more on their jobs and less on the legwork of communicating load information. The newly expanded interface will allow load information to be sent automatically to the driver's in-cab device including origin; address; city; state; destination; goods information including weight, pieces and pallets; scheduled pick up date; and delivery date and time. It also enables the driver to send and receive key logistical information such as actual arrival and departure times; bill of lading numbers; inventory measures such as number of goods and quantities broken down into weight, pallet and pieces; trailer number and more.

"We are pleased to expand upon the success of our popular PeopleNet integration module to offer this real-time exchange of detail to our users, right within their Prophesy Dispatch Solution," said HighJump CMO Bill Ashburn. "PeopleNet continues to provide gold-standard fleet management tools to the transportation industry."

"We are confident that our integration with Prophesy Dispatch will provide drivers with information that will help them have greater levels of safety, compliance, cost reduction and customer service, " said Kerri Tabor, PeopleNet's director of integration. "We are delighted to partner with HighJump to bring this solution to market."
