McLeod Software, a provider of dispatch, accounting and enterprise management solutions for trucking and brokerage firms, says that C.R. England Inc. has implemented the developer's HirePower module that's designed to reduce driver hiring time. McLeod says HirePower streamlines driver recruiting through remote, paperless data entry of applications and a controlled, consistent application process.
"As one of the largest and fastest growing U.S. motor carriers, we always need to recruit more drivers," says Chad England, vice president of recruiting, training and safe driving. "Having outgrown our previous systems for processing driver applications, we began looking for the most effective method our recruiting and compliance staff could use to manage the driver hiring process. After we worked with McLeod Software to develop and test HirePower, we felt this new solution was the best option to help us process new drivers faster and make it easier for them to work with us."
C.R. England specializes in temperature-controlled freight transportation. With more than 3,600 tractors and 5,000 trailers, the Salt Lake City, Utah-based company offers long haul and regional service throughout North America. In addition, the carrier provides international inbound and outbound and dedicated contract carriage, as well as transportation management, brokerage, intermodal, traffic management and refrigerated LTL services.
The company operates four driver training schools nationwide where individuals new to the industry can obtain their commercial driver licenses.
McLeod Software is headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama.
