Bluestreak | Schedule™ gives planners and supervisors an intuitive scheduling tool that makes load planning both easier and much more dynamic.  Planners know that no schedule is ever set in stone.  Equipment breaks down.  A rush job comes in.  The schedule can change at any time, and often does. Bright AM | Schedule™ provides flexibility, enabling planners to view all open orders, combine like jobs for processing, specify equipment for each load, prioritize jobs, and make changes as needed – instantly communicating everything downstream.  Load lists are automatically generated and/or updated and the operator is immediately notified.  Say goodbye to disconnect.

What our users are saying
about Bright AM

“Our planners and supervisors were in desperate need of an intuitive scheduling tool that makes load planning easier and much more dynamic.  We added the Bright AM Schedule module to our current package to resolve this issue.  Our planners can view all open orders, combine like jobs for more efficient processing, specify equipment load utilization, prioritize jobs, and make changes as needed. It was familiar to us because it worked similar to MS Outlook and uses drag-and-drop. We have full schedule visibility by day, week or month; it handles multiple pieces of equipment, and they are color coded to easily distinguish between the schedules.”
