TruckLogics App Update: New Features & More!
Breaking News, folks! Since we announced the launch of the TruckLogics App for Drivers a few months ago, there have been some huge developments!
These features make the App the perfect companion to the full TruckLogics site, allowing you to continue keeping accurate records wherever the job takes you.
Let’s take a sneak peek at the exclusive features that drivers and business owners alike will have unlimited access to!
To log in to the TruckLogics app, simply download from the iTunes or Google Play store, then use the same username and password credentials that you use for the full site. If you’re a driver, check out this step-by-step guide to getting your login credentials from your company.
All dispatches, active & completed, are visible from within your app. To add a Check Call and update the status of a dispatch, select the dispatch, and then click the Check Call icon. This will show the tracking details of that particular dispatch and allow you to update the status.
To add a new Check Call, select +Add Check Call, then choose the trip status from the dropdown menu. Next enter your location and the date & time, if applicable. In some cases, this information will be auto-filled for you. You can also add a Reason for the update, such as traffic delay, detour, or breakdown. Then hit save. Fin!
The update will automatically be sent to dispatch, as well as to the consignee. You can also edit the Check Call details by selecting the Pencil icon.
The Fuel Up tool will save your soul each and every IFTA quarter. You’ll never have to worry about losing a receipt or having disorganized trip sheets again. This exclusive feature makes it easy to keep all of your fuel transactions organized and in one place.
To log a fuel transaction, hit the Fuel Up icon within the appropriate dispatch, and enter the transaction details. Record the date, fuel type, quantity purchased, total of the sale, method of payment, even the address of the gas station. Any detail you could need for you records can be conveniently logged and organized. And the icing on the cake? You can upload a capture of the receipt too! Select Choose, then opt to take a photo or upload a previously snapped one!
If you need to record an expense other than a fuel purchase, this new feature has you covered! Within the appropriate dispatch, select Expense, and then +Add Expense to record a new transaction.
In a few seconds, your transaction will be recorded and synced with your Chart of Accounts in your main TruckLogics account! Enter the date, the Payee (select a vendor from your address book or add a new vendor), the payment method, amount, and attach an image of the receipt/invoice. Finally, select the Expense category from the dropdown menu to keep your finances organized.
It only takes a few seconds, and it keeps the accounting from piling up when you get back to the office!
But don’t forget, you do need a TruckLogics account to use the free app. If you need to sign up, now is a perfect time– we’re giving away free access for the New Year! Just sign up for 15 days free!
It’s the perfect way to kick off 2015 with a bang, and it’s the easiest, most convenient New Year’s resolution you could make!
