PCS Software adds new contactless features to expand TMS platform
  • With this addition, it is now possible for PCS consumers to effectively manage their workflows using their mobile devices
  • Document digitization has paved way for a safer and more sanitized workplace considering the current COVID-19 situation

PCS Software, has reportedly increased the efficiency of supply chains with the introduction of new paperless and contactless proof of delivery and bills of lading functions, thus expanding their TMS platform.

For the record, PCS Software is an AI-driven platform provider of transportation management services for carriers, brokers and shippers in the North American region.

PCS users will now be able to manage their workflows, which were formerly paper-based, using their mobile devices for features ranging from touchless facility gates to electronic document management.

The transportation industry faced a tough challenge in switching from paper-based logistics to digitized logistics. Currently, most of the logistics management process is automated, but with the physical documentation exchange between carriers, shippers and their recipients, it resulted in driver errors, delays and loss of productivity.

Reports from a survey have revealed that over 85% of senior executives of the supply chain department surveyed found it difficult to operate with inefficient digital technologies.

In addition, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has increased the significance of having digitized, contactless business operations for a safe and clean workplace.

The solutions offered by PCS Software help digitize the documentations exchanged between carriers, shippers and recipients to make sure that the deliveries and pickups are processed contact-free and quickly using their mobile application and OQ codes.

Paul Beavers, CTO at PCS Software, has apparently stated that while the pandemic has paved a way for contactless and paperless processes, the transportation industry will surely continue its journey towards a digital overhaul and make advancements in supply chain. He further added that the company has recognized this need, making it a priority for the future development of their platform.
