ITS Version 7.63.2

2011-01-24 | ITS Dispatch

Welcome to Version 7.63.2
A little bit of change is good, really. It is! Visual fine tuning, addressing speed issues, increased security, increased functionality and new components are just a few of the things that Version 5 touches.

Uploading (New Add on Component)
You will now see a FILES button in various locations of Version 7.63.2. This is a new add on feature that has been built to allow users to add documents to loads, drivers, carriers, trucks, trailers customers and so on. Once you upload the documents, they can be emailed or saved for future reference. There is no limit to how much you can upload and the uploaded document stays in the system until you delete it! All users can upload and access files for a fixed rate of $10.00 per month per account. Contact us today to have this tool turned on!

Increased Server speeds and Data Backups
With the new update, we have also upgraded to a server that is more than capable of carrying us through double our current customer base. Along with the increased server speeds and capacities, we have also revised our backup procedures and frequencies to better suit our rate of growth. Additional hardware redundencies have also been added to limit any downtime due to hardware failures.

New Look and Feel
Almost immediately you will notice a change in the window designs. This may appear to be a small change but in fact, it is fairly significant. By changing the design and style of the windows, we have made the site more consistent for future development which will allow for faster development on new components in the future. Besides that, we think it looks pretty cool!

Bugs
With any update, there are inevitably bugs and minor issues. We have done more testing on this release than any other. That being said, there will still be bugs.

ITS Dispatch - The leader in trucking software

2010-09-23 | Raye Ackerman

ITS Dispatch is a name to reckon with in the world of trucking businesses. It is the most popular transportation software used by most trucking operators and freight brokers. The software is ideal for small and medium sized companies, with a fleet of 5 to 30 trucks. Since its launch, the product has received great appreciation and positive feedback from its customers.

The Freight broker software was not a part of the initial version of the dispatch software. It was introduced in 2008 only for the benefit of freight carriers. This almost tripled the subscription base of the ITS dispatch software. The freight brokerage companies can easily arrive at figures of gross margin, revenues and carrier costs using the software. It can generate spreadsheets that spell out the details with regard to the top carriers, customers and dispatchers. The carrier information is presented with details of Tracking D.O.T, M.C. numbers and insurance data. It facilitates brokers to reduce complexities in their line of business and better manage their operations.

With these applications, you can instantly download or print document simply with a mouse click. You may use the accounting features to set credit limits for the customers. The dispatch functions enable you to view the active loads on the dispatch board and manage them. You can even duplicate the load entries or create loads in advance with these tools.

In April, a newer version called ITS-IFTA was introduced with an added feature of IFTA fuel tax software. It has been designed to simplify the procedure of filing fuel tax returns.

In the last few years, the trucking industry has undergone significant revolutionary changes. One of them has been the introduction of ITS dispatch; transportation software developed by a trucking business firm Truckstop.com Canada LTD..

It has surpassed several other web applications designed for the trucking industry and has carved a niche of its own. This software is intended for small and medium term enterprises, is fairly easy to operate and highly cost effective. It is meant to address all the problems and reduce the operational complexities of a trucking business. ITS dispatch is basically a complete web based package comprising of trucking and freight broker software. It scores big time over the previously used server based systems that were highly priced and involves no upfront costs. The cost effectiveness brings the software within the reach of smaller firms. Further, being completely web based it simplifies the trucking operations to a great extent. It enables the company to use all features of Internet Truckstop account from the software itself.

The Trucking software and Freight broker software package has been divided into three modules - dispatching, accounting and reporting tools. Using the dispatching tools, the firm can conveniently view all active trucking loads on the Dispatch board. It is fairly easy to manage the loads, duplicate them and also creates loads in advance, hence saving up on valuable time. Using the accounting tools, you can now set credit limits for customers.

Time to upgrade your trucking software!

2010-09-01 | Raye Ackerman

Are you in the transportation business, looking to revamp your business operations? You can begin with an upgrade of the existing trucking software to ITS Dispatch. This software has been specifically designed for freight brokers and trucking owners by Truckstop.com Canada LTD., a trucking business firm.

ITS Dispatch is a complete web based trucking and freight broker software package. Most trucking businesses continue to use the highly expensive server based systems. But you no more need to shell out so much money because ITS dispatch gives you more benefits at a fraction of the cost. The web based systems previously developed did not possess all the required features and functions. This trucking software fully succeeds on both aspects. It is highly convenient to use, cost effective and addresses all day-to-day issues of a trucking business. No upfront costs or annual subscriptions, you simply have to pay a nominal monthly fee for all the amazing services.

This package incorporates three kinds of tools - dispatching, accounting and reporting tools. The dispatching tools create a dispatch board that allows you to view all the active loads and manage them effectively. You can create loads in advance, thus giving the drivers ample time to prepare themselves. There is an easy provision to duplicate the load entries which helps save time too. The accounting tools allow the imposition of credit limits on each of the customers. It is fairly simple to arrive at an integrated payroll for each driver based on the miles, per hour or percent. You can also easily print invoices or export invoice data into quick books. A trucking operator can view detailed reports from drivers, carriers or customers on a real time platform, with the help of reporting tools. Furthermore, you can get broker or carrier statistics in the form of bar graphs based on volume, gross revenue, miles or percentage.

With such brilliant features and minimal expenses, it is clearly evident why ITS dispatch has gained such popularity in no time. Both trucking operators and freight brokers have praised the software for its effectiveness in simplifying operations. On April 1st 2010, the ITS-IFTA version of the package was introduced in the market. It incorporates IFTA fuel tax software into the erstwhile ITS dispatch package. But the IFTA fuel tax software can also be purchased separately, if required. It also acts as a web based program that serves the purpose of filling out the IFTA form and file the fuel tax return.

Transform your trucking business!

2010-07-22 | Raye Ackerman

The transportation industry has experienced several major changes in the last decade. There has been a wave of transformation in terms of how the trucking businesses are run. One crucial aspect has been the introduction of software to streamline the trucking operations. Most of the software used by the industry is server based and highly expensive to use. But the web based software though easy to use weren’t able to provide all possible features. However, the dynamics of trucking software changed with the introduction of ITS Dispatch.

ITS software is a trucking software and freight broker software meant to simplify the trucking business, which is based wholly on the web. It has been created by Truckstop.com Canada LTD., a pioneer in designing and developing transportation software. Initially the package only included the trucking software and was only meant for load carriers. In 2008, Truckstop.com Canada LTD. added the latest freight broker software catering exclusively to the freight brokers. Being completely web based, it is very easy to understand and use this software. More so, it doesn't require any computer upgrading or downloads or installations. You get the benefit of all required features and functions and at a nominal monthly fee at that.

This dispatch program comes laden with basic applications, accounting tools, reporting tools and dispatch tools. The dispatch tools give you a dispatch board platform that makes it much simpler to view and manage the active loads. Even when you travel you can now easily review the loads. You can also set up loads in advance that might help the driver be prepared. These basic applications enable a truck operator to view the loads and trucks online. The truck owners or brokers can access these results instantly in an easy to read format. Generate integrated driver payrolls using the given accounting features; where the pay can be based on either miles covered or per hour or percent.

Recently, an IFTA fuel tax software was also incorporated into the ITS dispatch framework, available as ITS-IFTA. This software is also available independently to those who currently do not use ITS dispatch. IFTA is the latest agreement between the United States and Canada with respect to fuel tax collection. According to this rule, every licensee who operates within the IFTA member state must file a fuel tax return. This software assists a trucking operator in calculating and filing the returns. Its simple design, convenience in use and cost effectiveness makes it the best software available.

Great West Trucking Show a success for ITS-Dispatch!

2010-07-01 | Raye Ackerman

The sales and support staff for ITS-Dispatch have just returned from a very successful show at the Great West Truck Show in Las Vegas. Working with the Internet Truckstop in a combined trade show event and users conference, the staff at ITS were able to meet with existing users of their Trucking Software and Freight Broker Software, in addition to exposing potential new customers to our web based trucking software and freight broker software solutions.

Potential customers were given a one hour group classroom session on ''Automating your Business'' which was then followed up with more detailed personal demonstration for each respective company.

''We were quite pleased that there was a really good mix of both trucking companies and freight brokerage companies as a result of the advertising that the Internet truckstop did prior to the show. This enabled us to actually close some business at the show, for the freight broker software and the trucking software packages. In addition, there is no shortage of potential customers to follow up with as well, over the next few weeks.''
Ian McDougall, Sales Manager - ITS Dispatch

This show will now be followed up with the next show in Dallas TX, the Great American Truck Show.

Truckstop.com Canada LTD. Introduces New Release of ITS-DISPATCH

2010-05-15 | Raye Ackerman

Truckstop.com Canada LTD. is proud to introduce ITS DISPATCH. ITS DISPATCH is a completely web-based trucking software application that has been designed for small to medium sized trucking companies and works equally well for fleets of all sizes.

ITS DISPATCH provides carriers with the tools to easily create detailed driver load sheets, perform driver payroll, invoice customers and create detailed customer reports. In addition, the application integrates with THE INTERNET TRUCKSTOP for quick truck postings or load searches.

The management group at Truckstop.com Canada LTD. realized that there was a gap in the market for trucking software applications that looked after carriers that were making their first moves away from using ''Home Made'' systems like Excel or Access or were doing everything manually. The choices for these carriers were very cheap entry level systems for less than a $1,000.00 that offered little support and required the carriers to install servers to run the applications. The next step from there could cost the carrier anywhere from $2,500.00 to $25,000.00 for a full turn key software package, again, not including the updating of local computers and servers.

Truckstop.com Canada LTD. came up with a unique solution to this. They developed a secure web-based application where all the information is located on a secured server. By doing this, carriers no longer have to install or update servers and can access their specific company files from anywhere they have internet access. This combined with a pricing package that allows carriers to start using a dispatch software immediately with nothing to buy, no downloads and just a low monthly fee.

Our users have all been very positive about the ease with which they were able to understand the application and with how quickly they were able to start using it on a daily basis. We invite new customers to visit our website (www.its-dispatch.com) and contact us to receive a detailed online demo. In addition, we have introductory pricing schedules that are second to none!

Truckstop.com Canada LTD. is the Canadian sales agent for the Internet Truckstop and manages exclusively all aspects of The Internet Truckstop Canada and ITS Dispatch.

The Freight Broker Software version contains new features that will aid freight brokerage companies in running their businesses. Most importantly, detailed statistics have been added that allow users to see at a glance, exactly what their companies are generating for gross margin, gross revenue and carrier costs. The statistics pages will detail out top performing customers, carriers and dispatchers in an easy to understand display with supporting spreadsheets that are completely printable.

These same detailed stats have been integrated into the existing carrier version and will now allow carriers the same tools to manage their operations.

The Freight Broker Software version was created with increased requirements for adding carriers including a function that alerts dispatchers to expired carrier insurance, prior to booking a carrier on a load. A link for Federal Motor Carrier Association (FMCA) has been added which will allow users to quickly look up the operating authorities of any carriers in their database. Add to this the existing interchangeable features from the carrier version and the ITS Dispatch package offers real alternatives to existing server based programs. These features include detailed reports, detailed load sheets, one click invoicing, Quick Books integration, multiple user levels and the most user friendly interface on the market.

A quote from an ITS Dispatch subscriber:

''The ITS Dispatch Trucking Software has been a great success for our fleet. We currently operate a transportation company with a fleet of 10 trucks. The Dispatch Board really helps us to keep an eye on our equipment and load orders at all times. The staff at ITS Dispatch have worked closely with us and have been more than helpful with all requests. Steve Pachov, MB Transport Enterprises Inc''.
