Ascendum, a rapidly growing global information technology company, has developed an exciting new mobile phone application for Total Quality Logistics (TQL) called TQL Freight Finder. As the nation’s fourth largest freight brokerage firm, this easy-to-use application enables TQL’s huge carrier base to stay connected with the business from the road, in real time, 24/7/365.
The innovative mobile application will help the TQL carrier base conduct business away from their traditional offices. Owners and operators can search, in real time, for available loads by mileage radius, equipment type, load date, and destination city/state, and users can search for available loads according to their Smart Phone GPS Locator’s current location. Search results include specific details for each load.
Eric Olson, Project Manager for TQL says this about the new time-saving application: “We felt that with the capabilities of today’s Smartphones, business for our carrier base and users could become more efficient utilizing mobile technology. We wanted to be the first to market with such a solution. With our technology partner Ascendum, we were able to meet this calling and provide an easy-to-use, very efficient means for our carriers to identify freight. Ascendum was quick to respond to our vision and they delivered a top-quality application in support of our short time-to-market strategy.”
According to Rich Schramm, Associate Vice President, Emerging Technologies at Ascendum,“Our iOS (Apple) and Android development teams worked together to design and develop this app for TQL. Our team provided a user interface (UI) and experience that is intuitive and nearly identical across both platforms.”
The successful release of TQL Freight Finder is a result of deep technological experience of Ascendum in mobile development for Apple and Android and a testament to its dedicated mobile applications solution area within its Emerging Technologies practice.
