Our team is releasing an exciting 8-part video series on harnessing the power of Load Manager TMS Software. This series aims to educate our audience on the core benefits of Load Manager software products so they can be more efficient. We offer various TMS software versions for Freight Brokers, Freight Agents, Independent Freight Dispatchers, Independent Truck Owner Operators, and Carriers. Hence we felt it was necessary to create a “How To” series of videos so everyone can understand how to use our software best.
TMS Software Season 1 Highlight – 8 Episodes
To kick it off, we selected our new SmartPhone GPS Tracking feature. This works excellent for Freight Brokers and Carriers. It is super easy with no setup, plus they can attach POD and other files by using the camera on their phone. And Freight Brokers, your one-time carrier, will not have any hassle with GPS tracking.
The 2nd video is on Data Mining with Microsoft Excel.
The data export feature can sort, filter and chart your Profit, Sales, or anything else you can imagine. Excel also has other advanced features using pivot tables and color scales. Moreover, if you are one of those people who like the extra piece of having your data on your local hard drive, then this is for you!
Our 3rd video showcases the Electronic Filing Cabinet with DropBox. Our support team can set this up for you if you don’t have an existing DropBox account. Once this is set up, you attach your PODs, Invoices, BOL, Sales Receipts, and even pictures to Load Manager. All attachments are uploaded to DropBox in real time. This will eliminate all of those papers in your office. Furthermore, since it is stored in DropBox, you can keep these files forever and view them all in one folder.
The 4th video is a customer favorite, Carrier Due Diligence. Vetting a carrier is crucial to protect you from unnecessary risk of loss when brokering a load. This includes carriers with poor safety records or inadequate insurance. Our TMS Software will automatically give you an alert for a risky carrier. You can even get their Certificate of Insurance with a mouse click using our SaferWatch integration.
Next Up is our 5th video; it will be on Text Dispatching.
Use the new text dispatching feature to text your driver the pickup and delivery info of the load they are supposed to haul. However, OUR dispatch texts combine three text messages into one message. This means you can send all the details in one 470-character text!
Our 6th video cover Paperless Billing. Talk about efficiency?…this is one of the best! We’ve connected our Electronic Filing Cabinet and mobile POD (proof of delivery) update feature with your billing procedures. Attach your POD and other billing documents to a load, click the Email button, and you’re done. Your invoice and all related billable documents are sent to the customer with your payment request.
Video number 7 in this TMS Software tutorial will walk you through our Asset Management Module. Designed for Carriers and Truck Owners, you get remainders when truck maintenance or registration renewals are due. If a warranty repair is needed, no more fumbling with the paperwork! Avoid any unnecessary repairs or late registration fees again. Also, attach your repair receipts to each truck.
To close out this series, the 8th video will cover paperless “Carrier Onboarding” with MyCarrierPackets. Using MyCarrierPackets, you can onboard a carrier in 5 minutes instead of 45 minutes. Moreover, carriers will love it too because they only have to enter their information once. If the carrier doesn’t finish entering their data, they can do it later and continue where they left off. It makes everyone’s life a whole lot easier.
Throughout this series, please tell us if you like the features but want to see customization! We build our software to meet the needs of our customers, so your feedback is important to us.
We often hear from TMS Software users about other “high-end” TMSs which appear more robust than ours. These systems are not only costly, but they are overly complicated. After you learn more about Load Manager, you will see we have many robust features. However, our prices won’t cost you an arm and a leg. We offer a free TMS Software trial of your choosing. You can also browse our add-on products in our website’s “Free Trial” part.
If you want more information on any of these features, give us a call or sign up for a free trial of our web-based TMS Software called Load Manager.
