Qualcomm announced its In-Cab Scanning service, a new addition to the OmniVision Transportation suite of services.
This service enables drivers to scan and transmit important documents such as trip and mileage reports, bills of lading, timesheets, receipts and other critical information. These activities can be performed immediately and from the cab of the truck, improving driver productivity by eliminating the need to search for truck stops with scanners. In-Cab Scanning also helps increase the pace of the business cycle for carriers. Data is received in minutes, rather than hours, which can speed up billing and other business processes for faster payment and improved operational performance. The time-consuming process of making extra stops to copy, scan, fax or mail documents is eliminated, which helps to improve productivity, profitability and drivers’ quality of life.
Qualcomm’s mobile computing platform for the transportation industry is a purpose-built system designed for interoperability with third-party services to help customers reduce costs and improve their bottom line. The In-Cab Scanning service is supported by a scanner located inside the cab of the truck, which allows a driver to quickly scan documents and move on to his or her next stop. Drivers spend less time processing and keeping track of paperwork, thereby saving time for both drivers and back-office staff. The In-Cab Scanning service also helps improve back-office productivity. Indexed documents can be automatically populated into key back-end processes, eliminating the need to re-key information and enabling faster dispatching of workloads and assignment of drivers.
