OCALA, Fla., March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- iGlobal, a rising and innovative provider of in-cab wireless systems, is pleased to announce the finalist nomination of a respected customer, Paramount Freight Systems, LLC, to the Truckload Carrier Association (TCA) 2011 Best Fleet To Drive For survey and contest.  Paramount Freight uses the iGlobal Journey MDT in-cab PC and is telling everyone why their owner-operator drivers voted for them as a top 20 finalist of this prestigious award.

One of the most significant contributions an iGlobal system provides is "getting the paperwork from the truck to the office instantly," said Trent Dye, Director of Paramount Freight.  In the back office, "expenses are being reduced by running 100 to 1, trucks to dispatch staff, instead of 75 to 1.  We've saved $175,000 a year in staff expenses alone.  And we invoice our customers within 15 to 30 minutes from delivery.  The impact to streamline freight billing, payroll, and dispatch has been tremendous.  Winning this award would be huge – we've only been in business three years this June – it's about our company and where we are going," said Mr. Dye.  "We're really excited to offer [iGlobal] to our drivers."

It was an anonymous Paramount driver who began the process. "We knew that introducing this device would meet with resistance from our drivers," said Dye.  "However, our drivers quickly realized the benefits of the Journey's ability to instantly process their paperwork.  If we took the device from our drivers now, I believe we would have a riot on our hands!"

iGlobal's Journey is an affordable mobile computer system that reduces fleet management costs, improves visibility, and reduces billing cycles through industrial grade scanning technology.  Paramount Freight had another well known in-cab system that took hours to install and much longer to see any return.  The iGlobal system "installs in minutes and pays for itself in 90 days.  It can be used with a TMS, or as a stand alone system," says Mr. Dye.  Since iGlobal's Journey is created by transportation professionals, they are confident the system will save fuel, improve communication, increase driver retention, and enhance driver recruitment for a greater ROI.
