Meiborg Brothers, Inc., located in Rockford, IL, was founded in 1981 by father and son duo William and Bill Meiborg. At that time, they employed only two drivers contracting with the United States Postal Service. Shortly after the company’s founding, they expanded the business and purchased more equipment. The duo also increased their employee count to 41 employees. Most recently, Meiborg Brothers, Inc. acquired another company, adding 11 more power units to their total fleet size.
Meiborg Brothers’ relationship with Prophesy originally started in 1999 when they signed up for a 30-day trial of Prophesy’s former ProDriver product, which then led to a purchase of Prophesy’s complete mileage and routing solution in April of 2002. Years later, in 2010, the Meiborg Brothers staff inquired about Prophesy’s software offerings again; this time, they were in the market for a robust, full-functioning dispatch system.
Training and Implementation
The product implementation went very smoothly by all accounts. Following implementation, Meiborg Brothers received in-depth product training with Implementation and Training Consultant Kim Manzone. “I attended the training and then passed on what I learned to the rest of the company. Kim was very knowledgeable and made all of the processes that she taught very easy to comprehend.”
Overall, Meiborg Brothers chose Prophesy Dispatch because of the solution’s simple interface, ability to quickly streamline business, and reasonable price. The company has benefited greatly from investing in Prophesy Dispatch; the solution has totally streamlined their operation. “Now that all of the company’s data is off of the whiteboard and built into the solution, our staff only has to enter data once. It’s all streamlined and saves so much time. Not to mention, with the IFTA software’s capabilities it has easily paid for itself,” Zach explained. He also shared that the company has saved 15 man hours a week thanks to the Prophesy Dispatch and 10 man hours a week thanks to Prophesy’s IFTA Fuel Tax solution.
