Trucking Software - How Much Money Should You Spend?
When you are running your own trucking or freight brokerage business, you need to keep your expenses in check. You are going to need to invest in some software to run your business effectively. In fact, you are likely to need specially designed software that addresses the specific operational requirements of the trucking industry. Fortunately, innovative web-based trucking software from ITS Dispatch is a cost-effective alternative to expensive, cumbersome server-based trucking software.
Until recently, trucking professionals only had one option for trucking software for their business. The only available trucking software had to be installed onto a company’s computers and updated manually. Typically, these server-based solutions have been very expensive, with a starting cost of $10,000 or more. As a result, this high cost may put buying server-based software out of reach for many growing trucking firms.
Today, cloud computing has ushered in a new era of web-based trucking software. With cloud computing, the software company hosts applications on their own servers. You are able to access your information via the Internet any time or any place, simply by logging in with a user ID and password. This is especially valuable if you have a mobile workforce or several operating locations, since your team members can log in from any WiFi connection. ITS Dispatch is one of the leading web-based software options for the trucking industry.
Another benefit of cloud-based software for the trucking industry is that it is often a more affordable alternative. With web-based trucking software, you do not have to purchase a software package. Instead, you can lease web-based software on a month-to-month basis for your trucking company. In addition, you no longer need to worry about losing your data due to computer crashes, since your information is stored securely and backed up routinely by the software provider. Since access to your data is available everywhere, you, your team members, or even your spouse can log in at any time, instead of needing access to one specific machine where you store your records.
