Georgia, August 21, 2023 -- Descartes Systems Group, the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that it has expanded the Descartes GroundCloud™ final mile logistics platform with new, integrated payroll management services from Gusto. The combined solution offers delivery service providers a configurable, cost-effective and streamlined alternative to outsourcing payroll or internally using a non-integrated third-party payroll solution.
“With the integration it was very easy to move to Gusto payroll because we’re already using Descartes GroundCloud,” said Adam Shapaka of Shap Express Inc, an independent service provider based in Ohio. “We have all of our timecards in Descartes GroundCloud and the data needed to process payroll in the Gusto solution. From an audit standpoint, everything is there in an integrated solution.”
The Descartes GroundCloud solution combines final-mile logistics automation with operations, safety and compliance in an integrated platform. Final-mile carriers leverage the platform to receive customer delivery orders, plan and execute routes against those orders, train and monitor drivers on safety and performance, manage assets and resources, and analyze the operating efficiency of their business. The Descartes GroundCloud platform also incorporates video telematics to provide driving event detection and verification, combined with reactive coaching solutions designed to improve safety. Now final-mile logistics services providers can efficiently manage their payroll though Descartes GroundCloud.
“We’re excited to help Descartes provide payroll capabilities tailored to its delivery and transportation providers,” said Yi Liu, General Manager of Gusto Embedded. “With the ability to manage payroll from within Descartes GroundCloud, companies can simplify payroll processing, ensure accurate payroll services, and decrease the time and costs associated with managing payroll using a separate application.”
“We’re pleased to collaborate with Gusto to provide our Descartes GroundCloud customers with cost-effective and efficient payroll management capabilities,” said Dave Leland, VP GroundCloud at Descartes. “The integrated solution streamlines and automates the payroll process, allowing carriers to focus more time on operating the business and less time on managing back-office tasks.”
