CX North America Expands Driver Mobile App with Digital Proof of Delivery Update

TECUMSEH, ON—(Marketwired – February 07, 2018) – CX North America Information Services Inc. (CX North America), a leader in freight collaboration and communication solutions for the transportation industry, announces new digital document creation functionality is now available in its CX North America Driver Mobile App. The next–generation mobile app, designed to enhance visibility and enable communication from booking to Proof of Delivery, now allows drivers to create and electronically send instant, high–quality bill of lading documents in PDF format for immediate invoicing.

After a delivery is made and bill of lading signed, drivers are able to take a photo of the document with their smartphone camera to begin the PDF creation process. Designed to optimize photos taken even in unideal, low–light conditions, the mobile app will process the image and adjust for contrast, clarity and orientation. The driver is able to crop the photo as necessary, removing unwanted background and focusing on the document itself. The app then automatically converts the file to a formally acceptable electronic format, transforming the image from simply a photo of a document to a viable Proof of Delivery. The PDF can then be sent instantaneously to the dispatcher, saving both drivers and carriers time and money by allowing the billing process to begin more quickly.

Simon Bunegar, senior vice president of marketing, CX North America, says, “Our mobile app is designed by transport professionals for transport professionals as a solution to address operational inefficiencies with real–time visibility and instant communication. In the past, drivers have always relied on traditional methods to submit signed PODs, such as faxing or mailing. These processes take hours at minimum, most often days. Our new functionality puts all the necessary documentation in the right hands instantly, resulting in faster payment times for carriers and drivers. What was once a time consuming, paper–based practice is now accelerated, streamlined system that improves the overall efficiency of the delivery process.”

Intended for collaboration between carriers, drivers, brokers and 3PLs, the mobile app offers a range of information exchange and tracking capabilities for real–time freight management, including up–to–the–minute status updates, automated alerts and two–way messaging for vital job orders. The app's easy–to–use functionality allows firms to operate more efficiently by maximizing vehicle utilization, load management and capacity.

Designed by transport professionals for transport professionals, the CX North America Driver Mobile App is available for download on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. It is free of charge for CX North America subscribers and firms doing business with subscribers. The app is optimized for display on a full range of screens.

INFINITI QX60 and QX80 Named Among Winners in Kelley Blue Book's 5-Year Cost to Own Awards

NASHVILLE, TN—(Marketwired – February 07, 2018) – Two INFINITI models – the 2018 QX60 and 2018 QX80 – were selected as segment leaders in Kelley Blue Book's 5–Year Cost to Own Awards, which recognizes new vehicles with the lowest projected ownership costs.

Kelley Blue Book chose the 2018 QX60 for the Luxury Mid–Size SUV category, and the new 2018 QX80 was selected for the Luxury Full–Size SUV segment. Winners of the 5–Year Cost to Own Awards were chosen based on factors such as depreciation, state fees, expected fuel costs, finance and insurance fees, as well as maintenance and repair costs.

The popular and highly awarded QX60 crossover is one of the most versatile 3–row/7–passenger vehicles on the market today, offering a combination of family oriented features as well as a welcoming, carefully crafted design inside and out.

For the 2018 model year, the QX60 introduced a breakthrough technology designed especially for active families – Rear Door Alert. The new Rear Door Alert system, standard on all 2018 QX60 models, can help remind customers of anything that may be forgotten in the rear seat, such as pets, valuables, dry cleaning, groceries and more.

Other available security features and driving aids include: Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection; Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention; Backup Collision Intervention; Blind Spot Intervention; Intelligent Cruise Control (Full–Speed Range); Distance Control Assist; Active Trace Control; and Front Pre–Crash Seat Belts. Also offered are the advanced Predictive Forward Collision Warning system and Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection feature.

Further advancing INFINITI's presence in the full–size luxury SUV segment, the company introduced in December the new 2018 QX80, which takes INFINITI's Powerful Elegance design language in a bold new direction, creating a powerful, contemporary and commanding aesthetic.

The 2018 QX80 stands apart with a refined and spacious cabin that features high–quality materials, a hand–crafted finish, and advanced drive–assist technologies – all combining to promote a sense of inclusive, modern luxury and set new standards for upscale sophistication for both the driver and passengers.

With a taut yet comfort–oriented suspension and ample performance from its 5.6–liter V8 engine, the new QX80 gives drivers an assured feeling of control and confidence at the wheel.
