It’s that time of year again. The leaves are beginning to turn–painting the horizon with hues of amber and ruby, then listlessly falling to the ground.
Soon a lush carpet of foliage will crunch beneath our every step, swirling into infinitely new patterns with each gust of the wind.
Fall is one of my favorite seasons to get outside and meander. Nothing refreshes the soul like an afternoon adventure down streets & sidewalks, coffee in hand, absorbing the crisp air and technicolor
But on those cloudy, dismal days when you can’t enjoy Fall’s Bounty, why not stay indoors and enjoy a different kind of scenic tour. I’m talking about a tour of a computing work of art, TruckLogics.
TruckLogics has a lot going for it. It’s affordable, it’s easy-to-use, and it’s good lookin’!
Yeah, I called a program good-looking. Don’t underestimate the importance of good design. Managing your business seems less like work and more like play when the program is easy on the eyes. And that’s just one of the amazing things about TruckLogics.
It’s also stuffed with exclusive features that make it functional for the fast-paced trucking life. And today, we’ll have a look at all of it.
Join me on a scenic tour through TruckLogics. See how our fresh design and features can transform your trucking business, overnight.
Our first stop is the Dashboard.
All roads lead to the Dashboard. It’s where it all begins and ends. The Dashboard is the core of TruckLogics. When you create an account, it’s the first place you’re taken.
In a single glance, the Dashboard keeps you up-to-date with everything happening in your business. Pending orders, order statuses, upcoming maintenance–anything that needs your attention will pop-up on your Dashboard.
Think of all the little details and moving parts that go into your business every day. Think of everything that escapes your attention.
Now think of it all in one place. One organized, structured picture. Suddenly it all makes sense. Suddenly you know what must be done. That’s what the Dashboard will do for you. It creates order in the midst of chaos.
If you look to your right, you’ll see the next stop on our scenic tour: the Address Book.
This is your second destination when setting up your new account, right after entering your business details. They say that it’s all about who you know. And they (whoever they are) are right! And if you’re in the trucking business, you know a lot of people.
Customers, Vendors, Drivers, Brokers–all of them stay organized in the Address Book. Here’s a bonus: the Address Book comes pre-loaded with hundreds of industry contacts to save you time! And it’s customizable.
For contacts not pre-loaded, you can choose to load them in when you start or to add them as-you-go each time you create an order or a dispatch.
And here are the serious, long-term benefits of the Address Book. When creating future orders/invoices/etc. the Address Book will auto-fill most fields, saving you time & saving your fingers from the horrors of redundant typing. Simply enter the first three characters of the business/individual’s name, and Ta-Da, Address Book does the rest.
And the good news is, we have even more features that read your mind! Like our next feature, the much-loved, world-renowned Truck Zone!
The final feature you’ll use when setting up your new account is Truck Zone. Users of our sister product, ExpressTruckTax, are familiar with its wondrous abilities. And it works wonders in TruckLogics too!
Truck Zone is your digital garage, a place to organize and store info for 1, 100, or 1,000 trucks! No matter the size of your fleet, Truck Zone is guaranteed to save you time. Enter the VIN, gross vehicle weight, Unit Number, and all of that other easy-to-forget yet oh-so-vital details. Under Driver Preferences, you can also assign certain drivers (from Address Book!) to a default truck/trailer, which cuts even more time off of dispatching. All of your fleet’s equipment, trucks, & trailers will be organized and easy to find using the advanced search bar. (And not to give away any spoilers, but this will majorly pay off around tax time!)
Once all of this info is cozily tucked away in your “garage,” it’ll pop-up everywhere else and make your business run more smoothly than ever. Whether you need to assign equipment to an order or a dispatch or schedule maintenance, Truck Zone makes it happen in the twinkling of an eye by auto-filling the appropriate fields.
And even more good news for ExpressTruckTax users! When you sign in with your ETT login, your info is automatically transferred to your TruckLogics account, eliminating most of the set-up.
From the Dashboard, to the Address Book, to Truck Zone, and back to Dashboard again, this is just the beginning of the features that TruckLogics offers. Luckily, the program’s fresh design and ease of use make setup a breeze.
