Top 100 Carrier replaces paper based system with robust workflow solution that integrates to AS/400, RVI, USIS and other third party applications
East Moline, IL – EBE Technologies, the leading provider of integrated enterprise process management solutions today announces Maverick Transportation licensed EBE’s SHIPS Driver Recruiting software to streamline their hiring process.  
SHIPS Recruiting and Driver Management software manages the complete hiring cycle. Beginning with the processing of web, faxed, mailed or phoned- in applications, the software then applies qualification rules against applications, automates and audits the verification process including electronic interfaces to third parties such as USIS, previous employers and wellness clinics. The on-boarding process is done automatically as driver qualification files are received and verified against applicant data. Depending on the business rules of the carrier, the orientation process can then be managed through SHIPS or, in Maverick’s case, can be integrated to a carrier’s orientation and financial software where driver master file data is then either stored in the SHIPS data base or passed on to a carrier’s existing operations software. 
“We evaluated many solutions before selecting EBE. The combination of its expertise in workflow processes, understanding of the transportation industry and breadth of interface capabilities made it an easy decision for us”, said Mike Hufnagel, Maverick’s VP of Information Technology.  “When we calculated the ROI for labor savings, improved efficiencies and the ability to hire qualified drivers more quickly, EBE clearly came out on top,” added Brad Vaughn, Maverick’s Director of Recruitment.
SHIPS recruiting software will replace a paper-based system requiring massive amounts of data entry into Maverick’s AS/400 system. It will provide links and pass driver information and documents between Mavericks’ current AS/400 based human resource, orientation and driverqualification file management systems. Through EBE’s immediate document exchange software, once documents are processed through SHIPS software, they will be archived for retrieval in Maverick’s existing RVI imaging system.
Cindy Nelson, EBE’s Sr. Director of Marketing and Business Development and Division Manager of EBE’s Driver Management Solutions Group stated “the ability to enhance companies’ existing operations and imaging systems by front ending them with SHIPS workflow and application processes has provided carriers with a way to protect their investment while reaping the benefits of a truly dynamic process management system. It’s exciting to add a sophisticated carrier such as Maverick to our user community. Maverick is a very forward thinking organization with strong in-house technical expertise. Their trust in EBE and our software validates the value we provide to carriers to reduce operational costs, improve efficiencies, and positively affect a company’s bottom line.”
