Loaded - Provide BOL Details

Sylectus Driver provides two methods for entering Bill of Lading (BOL) information: 

  • Scan Image Process: Scan the BOL by taking a picture and tapping in the relevant information.
  • Manual Input Process: Manually enter data in the fields.

Note: The second option is only available to Sylectus customers who subscribe to Imaging, as a copy of the scanned BOL is saved with the TO.

Scan Image Process 

  1. Select the Scan Image button. The app opens the phone’s camera and an orange rectangle for image detection appears. 
    Note: The driver can disable this feature by turning off the auto-detect button.
  2. When the BOL has been detected, click on the orange camera button.
  3. The driver can use the cropping feature to crop the image and adjust the rectangle detection to outline the BOL only. once this is done, select the Confirm button. Please note that the driver can disable this feature by selecting the orange crop sign on the bottom left of the screen. 
  4. If the picture is not clear, select the Retake button and repeat steps 2 and 3. 
    Once the image has been scanned, the OCR detection feature will select all the fields detected on the image. 
  5. To enter the BOL #, tap on the part of the image where the number is shown. To deselect, tap on the same area again. Make sure the correct number is showing in the bottom text box. If it is not, you can change it manually. Once it is correct, select on the Next button. The driver can zoom in and zoom out of the picture as necessary. 
  6. Repeat step 5 to enter the Item Count number and the Weight information, then select the Next button.
  7. Enter the Reference # if applicable and select the Next button. This can be an alphanumeric value.
  8. The driver will be asked if another BOL needs to be added to the order. If yes, select the Add BOL # button and enter the required information. If no, select the Return to Load button.

Please note that if the driver enters the BOL information manually, the driver will need to upload an image of the BOL later on; in the meantime, the following notification will appear at the top of the order:

Drivers can see all uploaded documents at the bottom of the overview screen by tapping on the document type. In the same section the driver will be able to upload the load documents that were not uploaded at the time of the pick-up.

Note: Document images can be uploaded at any time during the order process.
