Today I am giving you a different answer, and I am very excited to share this news with you - today the site is mobile enabled. Give it a test drive - v...

A while back we released a tool designed to allow employees to view pay history including viewing their settlement data by trip. It was recently brought to my attention that in some instances drivers reported that when clicking on the "View Trip Detail" they were taken to a blank white page. Today I was contacted by a twelve year employee "Joe" from Phoenix, AZ with some specifics that allowed us to track this issue down and resolve it. Thank you to Joe and others for reaching out to us and giving us a chance to resolve the issue for you. If there are additional questions or concerns about t...

Looks like some of you have been getting emails from us with no real content in the body. This is certainly not by design, but the good news is we believe this to now be resolved.  Please accept our apologies for this and any confusion we caused.

Yesterday we got some feedback from Russell - a 14 yr. driver out of Cleveland, TN - regarding his eagerness to get his dispatch via email and a problem he found while testing it out. Through conversation with him we were able to determine that the messages were delivered to his email account but they were sitting in his spam box. This is course is not a good thing to have happen, but we are happy to say we think the cause for this behavior has been located and corrected. However, we wanted to share this with you in case you too are not getting the emails as you would expe...
