Trucker Tools announces a new partnership with OTR Capital that will include a platform integration where Trucker Tools’ freight-matching and automated Book It Now features will be embedded into OTR Capital’s customer portal.
The agreement expands the scope of partnerships Trucker Tools has established and is among the first the company has formed with financial services and business support firms focused trucking operators. It extends to OTR Capital’s customer base several of Trucker Tools’ proven, time-saving features for truckers to optimally find and match available loads, automate booking, and scan and send documents to speed up payment for delivered loads.
Specific Trucker Tools functionality to be integrated will include:
- Predictive Freight Matching: This capacity management resource enables OTR Capital’s trucker-clients to quickly find and secure the ideal truckload shipment based on their current or projected location, preferences and profile of the individual driver, and will identify, reserve and schedule future available loads.
- Automated One-Click Booking: The “Book-it-Now” feature is an automated load booking tool that presents to the driver updated, real-time available loads with pricing. The trucker benefits from fast, easy-to-use, one-click load acceptance and confirmation. This eliminates cumbersome manual booking processes to save time, so the truck can keep moving to continue generating revenue.
In addition to these strategic tools, OTR Capital clients also will be able to access other valuable resources on the Trucker Tools mobile driver app, including cheapest fuel locations, parking and rest areas, maintenance facilities, restaurant and food-service, and route optimization tools.
Trucker Tools provides real-time shipment visibility, trip planning, freight-matching and automated booking tools for freight brokers and small-fleet truckload carriers. OTR Capital is one of the industry’s largest and most respected factoring firms providing working capital and back-office solutions to truckers.
“At the end of the day this partnership meaningfully expands the resources we can provide to truckers, and helps OTR Capital’s clients get loaded faster with better freight, run their business more efficiently and get paid promptly,” noted Prasad Gollapalli, Founder and CEO of Trucker Tools.
“This is a very unique engagement that addresses two key imperatives for our clients: simplifying and automating many of the burdensome tasks truckers face in managing a fluid and changing business, and providing timely, accurate data through enabling, intuitive mobile technology,” noted Fritz Owens, Founder and CEO of OTR Capital.
Owens added that the integration will help independent owner-operators and small fleets “maximize revenue opportunity and return on assets by significantly reducing unproductive downtime, keeping their trucks rolling with quality loads, and getting paid promptly.”
