New contact for sales leads

Hi Mercertown!  One of our team members from the Sales Department, Travis Belden, has taken on a new role in following up on sales leads from contractors.  Whether business is booming or slow, we can always use new ideas and leads from contractors.  Travis will be the point of contact for this information.  He can then research potential sales leads and forward them as needed.  His contact information is: tbelden@mercer-trans.com.  Please identify who you are if you contact Travis so he can more easily get back in touch.  Thanks and have a great day!

Mercer Mobile App Upgrade

Hi Mercertown!

Mercer has been working to update and release the newest version of our Mercer Mobile App for Mercer Permanent Contractors, and we are excited to announce that it is ready and available for download/update. This application is available to any Mercer Contractor with an Android or iphone. However, it is NOT available for download in the app/play store. If do not already have the app installed on your phone, you must contact your coordinator to get a four digit code, then log into the Contractor Web, go to the links section, and click “Mercer Mobile for Drivers” to download the app. Also on that page, you will find the links to the User Manual for the app. Please download the user guide, and read it thoroughly before installing and utilizing the application.

This mobile app will be a great tool for all of our Mercer Contractors to use while out on the road. Our first version of the app made it possible for our contractors to perform their Loaded, Empty, and check calls at the touch of a button. Now, with the latest update, we have also incorporated document scanning into the app, which will allow you to easily, and quickly send pictures of load documents, and other Mercer related documentation through the app directly to Mercer. Sending paperwork to Mercer through the app will NOT require the use of a bubble/cover sheet, and you will be able to send unlimited documents to Mercer for only $2.75 per month! This is a significant savings compared to the price per page that is currently charged for Transflo.

Mercer is very confident that this app will help us all be more efficient and effective in our day to day operations. To encourage the download and usage of the app, we would like to offer a little incentive to you. Starting immediately, Mercer will give a new dash cam to each unit that downloads, and fully utilizes all of the functions of the app!

To be eligible for the dash cam, you must download the app, or update the app if you already have it installed. You will then be able to pick up your dash cam from the company store in Louisville.  IT must be picked up in person.  Then over the next 90 days, we will track the usage of the app to make sure you are using it. You will need to perform Loaded, Empty, and Check Calls, submit all paperwork, and also enable the tracking option. If all of these options are not utilized consistently over the 90 day period, we will charge you for the dash cam ($40.00). Also, if the lease is terminated within the 90 day period, the camera will need to be returned to Louisville.

The tracking option is located in the Settings of the app. You can enable tracking and set the interval in which the app will update Mercer with the GPS location of your device. This location information will be helpful for Mercer to track mileage for Fuel Tax reporting, and also help us to quickly and easily update your coordinator and our customer of your location. Many shippers are requesting this type of tracking and location update from us. Utilizing this part of the app, may help us to acquire more freight, and better rates! The tracking can be turned on and off. Mercer doesn’t have any interest in tracking you during your personal time, so you may disable tracking when you are not operating the truck. Tracking must be utilized if you wish to get a free dash cam.

If you are not interested in a dash cam or already had one, and are not interested in having another one, we still would like to encourage you to download the app. It is a great tool for you all to have, and it is technology that we are committed to continuously develop over time. There will definitely be more exciting upgrades in the near future!

So if you are ready to get started, log on to the contractor web, go to links, tap on Mercer Mobile for Drivers, and tap on the link that says Install/Update Mercer Mobile. If you already have the mobile app, it is ready for the update! Most questions on how to download and use the Mobile App can be found in the User Guide available on the contractor web.  If you have any questions contact your coordinator, or the Contractor Relations department.

As always, thanks for all you do. Have a great day, and GO MERCER!

Android update:
If you already have the app installed (just needing to update the version), just log on to the contractor web, go to links, tap on Mercer Mobile for Drivers, and tap on Download Mercer Mobile 2.0 for Android. You will only need a registration code if you do not already have the app installed on your phone.

iOS update:
When you tap the Update button the “do you want to install…” windows pops up and when you hit “install”. The app closes and updates without showing the little “clock” animation over the app icon like it used to. So…

1.) In Mercer Mobile Settings, swipe up if you can’t see the Version info/Update button
2.) Tap the Update button
3.) Tap Install in the “install window”
4.) The app closes and starts updating without indication that is doing so…
5.) Wait for the app to install… You can tell that the phone is doing something by looking at the status bar at the top near where you can see how many “bars” you have.
6.) When the thing indicating the phone is doing something up near where your “bars” are stops indicating it is doing something run the app and it will be version 2.0.
