Descartes Logistics Technology Platform has a control tower view which we have used a lot. It permits us to check on [the] real-time status of every truck, also has the features and option to communicate with the trucks' ELD, which gives us the most liable information about his current location and status.

Although we are a small carrier (20 trucks with two people who dispatch during the same hours), Prophesy would be even more powerful with a slightly larger company that has multiple dispatchers that need to share information without being physically together. Multiple-office locations or companies that have employees working remotely would do well with Prophesy.

Alternatives Considered
Descartes Systems Group
It is a powered tool that can be used by any of the current logistics (and why not?, non-logistics companies), that need a reliable, accurate, and well-based amount of information of the fleet, with ease. Using the [latest] technologies, integrating a wide view of transportation, inventory, [and] custom status on a single but not simple platform.

The two most important features for us when deciding which provider to use were integration with third-party software and ease of scheduling drivers and matching with loads. Prophesy, for the money, excelled in both areas over the other systems we reviewed, some of which are not listed. The professionalism of the sales rep also set a tenor for the company he represents
