HighJump: Bringing Analytics in Fleet Management
Traditionally, telematics devices were deployed to track the location of vehicles. But over the years, the need for a real-time fleet management solution has escalated in enterprises for better productivity. And by integrating telematics with analytics, businesses have been able to enhance fleet management process and get real-time insights for monitoring heavy equipment and optimize production uptime. Headquartered in Minneapolis, United States, HighJump brings forth an arsenal of solutions for transport management system, warehouse management system, and inventory management system. This wide suite of solutions forms a viable platform for enterprises to drive growth and reinforce customer satisfaction.
Founded in 1983, HighJump’s Transport Management Solution (TMS) accommodates the increasing needs of third-party logistics (3PL) providers. With TMS software, enterprises can manage logistics transportation and freight distribution needs in real-time. HighJump’s Truckload carrier software solution works in-line with the speed of trucking and amalgamates seamlessly with QuickBooks accounting software. This integration robotizes the transfer of data from A/R, A/P, and Payroll to the accounting system. And with the third-party accounting interface, clients can easily merge with MAS 90/MAS 200 and other accounting systems.
With over two decades of competency in fleet management, HighJump’s Prophesy Trucking Software represents quality, reliability, and affordability for the trucking industry. The software seamlessly integrates with the existing software of the company and enhances the visibility of the operation.

The solution further facilitates clients with single-user integrations and simplifies freight functions to improve customer functionality.
Additionally, with HighJump’s Inspection module, consumers can automate mobile inspection routines related to inbound and outbound products, trucks and containers, and other warehouse processes. “Our inspection module streamlines the compliance issues that are increasingly prevalent in the omnichannel world,” says Chad Collins, COO, HighJump.
Recently, a game room furniture manufacturer company was facing complexities to accommodate high volumes of smaller orders and shorter shipping windows. The company’s warehouse was a complete mess with various error-prone and manual workflows. To streamline these processes and attenuate the complexities of manual workflow, the furniture manufacturer company opted for HighJump’s warehouse management solution. With HighJump’s small parcel and less than truckload (LTL) shipping solution, the company achieved better cost and operational efficiencies by integrating shipment label creation into the outbound order process.
Furthermore, the firm launched its new mobile application, HighJump Supply Chain Advantage inMotion. The app built on iOS, Android, and Windows 10 mobile devices enable consumers to execute inventory in a cost-efficient way. “The future of enterprise software is in mobile and this product’s release is an important step forward in our vision of the next generation of supply chain technology,” adds Chad Collins, COO, HighJump.
The company envisions expanding geographically in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and throughout Asia. In the process, the company recently collaborated with Schmidt to map its services globally. The other partners of the firm include Anchor Information Technology in Shanghai, Hentor in Nanjing, and Hyrus Technology in Xiamen.
