Quality Check Added on Smartphone App for Optimal Image Capture
Tampa, Fla. — May 14, 2013 — Pegasus TransTech, the leading provider of document scanning applications to the transportation industry, has released a significantly enhanced version of TRANSFLO Mobile. This convenient and reliable solution allows users to scan and submit delivery documents instantly using only a smartphone.
The enhanced TRANSFLO Mobile app is free to drivers who send paperwork electronically to participating carriers or for carriers who send paperwork to participating brokers. TRANSFLO Mobile speeds document delivery allowing drivers and carriers to capture and send high-quality images of proof-of-delivery documents, logs, invoices, and receipts using an iPhone or Android smartphone.
The latest version improves the general optimization of document images, resulting in crisper and higher quality images than ever before. To ensure that images are legible, this new version of TRANSFLO Mobile automatically provides an additional electronic quality check – right on the smartphone. The readability of each image is evaluated, scored, and validated before submission. If the user captures an image that has questionable focus or is not legible, the app prompts the user to review or re-take the image.
TRANSFLO Mobile has a special algorithm for enhancing images that are traditionally difficult to read such as multi-page colored documents or carbon copy forms. It also allows users to lighten and darken the document image which is especially important for colored documents that have varying hues and shades of text.
Other enhancements that improve the quality of images before they are sent to carriers or brokers include a camera default setting that automatically turns the flash to the “on” position.
“We pride ourselves on high quality images that can be used to quickly and easily process billing and payroll,” said Bob Helms, Pegasus TransTech chairman and CEO. “Our newest version of TRANSFLO Mobile demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing fleets and brokers with the best image quality in the industry.”
Many of the new features are based on feedback received from fleet and broker customers. The app allows users to add applicable data in customer specified fields for each document, auto-crops and enhances the image, and then compresses it for fast, easy transmission.
No training is required to use TRANSFLO Mobile. A driver or carrier simply downloads the app, completes registration and follows self-explanatory prompts. A carrier does the same when sending to a broker. All the necessary documents and data entries will be sent together in one transmission. Tens of thousands of drivers have been using the app since it was first released in July 2011.
If carriers prefer to submit paperwork to brokers using their computer, TRANSFLO $Velocity will perform all the same functions. Similarly, drivers can send paperwork to their carriers with a computer using TRANSFLO Now!
The newest smartphone version works with iPhone 4, 4S, and 5 as well as the iPad Mini and the iPad 4. The application is available for free download in the Apple iTunes App Store. Drivers and carriers who previously downloaded the app can select “update” in the App Store to upgrade their TRANSFLO Mobile app to the latest version. An upgraded Android version with all of these same features is expected to be released soon.
