TQL Introduces First Mobile App for Trucking Industry with Speak-and-Search Capability
Carrier Dashboard 4.1 is the first mobile application in the trucking industry with speak-and-search technology. The app, released on May 19 from Total Quality Logistics (TQL), has been in development for more than a year and features an industry-specific vocabulary tailored to moving freight. The goal: save time for drivers on the road and help them find freight more easily.
“We are the first to market with a mobile application that allows drivers to search for loads with voice commands,” said TQL President, Kerry Byrne. “Technology is a serious competitive advantage. The faster carriers can find our loads, the easier it is for us to satisfy our customers’ delivery requirements.”
Carrier Dashboard 4.1 uses a form of artificial intelligence to continuously improve performance, along with recognizing regional accents and filtering out most ambient noise. The more drivers use the app, the better it gets. And when it’s time to head home drivers simply ask the app to “Take Me Home” and it will find them a load heading back to their hometown.
