BOLT integrates with Qualcomm’s Circle of Service workflow application

Circle of Service Workflow helps carriers transform their business by intelligently capturing and delivering crucial information as it happens and as it is needed. The application helps fleets improve the driver and customer experiences with features that include a list of scheduled stops, as well as automated arrival and departure detection with latitude and longitude. Just-in-time prompts and exception notifications help drivers reduce their dependence on back-office staff for key information.

BOLT – the Internet-based dispatch / fleet management system. We focus on Private Fleets. We always strive to increase your fleet efficiency and productivity – whether for your own fleet or your dedicated or committed carriers. Our goal is to increase ease of use and reduce capital outlay plus cost of piece delivered. In addition to automating your dispatch, billing and driver settlement, combine BOLT with an OBC and integrate with your ERP system (e.g., SAP, Oracle, etc) and you can not only improve efficiency, track freight details and access accurate real time reports but you can also begin to reduce inventory turns and truly impact your Corporate ROI.

Jerry Robertson, CTO for BOLT, commented on the announcement: “With the volatile cost of fuel and driver shortages, it is imperative for fleets to operate at maximum efficiency. The tight integration of Qualcomm’s Circle of Service Workflow and BOLT’s extensive back office data warehouse/mining software provides immediate information about your operation – including real time recording of driver hours, engine performance, GPS location and “load specific” data. GPS-triggered emails and BOLT’s customer profile history provide information for fast and accurate decisions. Reducing time between loads and waiting to load and/or unload can be measured and factored into rates.”

“With the integration of our Circle of Service Workflow application to Bolt’s Internet-based fleet management systems, our shared customers can now take advantage of enhanced operational efficiency and improved customer service,” noted Norm Ellis, vice president of sales, services and marketing, Qualcomm Enterprise Services.
