WHATS COMING UP NEXT!

Update Load Progress!

We are working on allow you to update the progress on load directly from the load list page. You can also force complete the load using this option instead of going to each stop and completing it.

Help Portal!

We have created short video tutorials, frequently asked question bank, user manual for training end users. We are going to integrate the help portal with Axele in the next release.

Cancel Load!

You can cancel a load at any stage before it gets completed. We have also added a new invoice item TONU (Truck ordered; Not used) to add any additional charges here.

Invoice Notes!

In order to capture any notes for a customer or invoice, we are working on adding invoice notes. This invoice notes will appear in the invoice page and the financial section of a load. The notes appear only when the dispatcher or any user has entered any text to communicate it with the accountants.

Market Strength on Load Selection!

We understand backhaul to be a major concern while booking/searching a load in a market. In order to assist our user to get a better-quality load considering the changes of the backhaul load, we are working on adding a KPI called ‘Market Strength’ for each load destination.

A destination with higher Market strength means that there is a better chance of getting a backhaul load from the destination.

You can get benifitted from this feature by using our load selection workflow.

Load creation using rate confirmation PDF!

We are working on extracting the information from the rate confirmation PDF and auto create a load form it. You just need to drop rate conformation PDF on the create form and our application will auto detect the PDF and fill all the extracted fields on the create form.

Right now, we will be supporting only few rate conformation templates and are working on adding more and more templates to our list.

Create/Edit Layout improvements!

We have started redesigning create/edit layout based on our user’s feedback. Our new design is going to be compact and will encompass all the important fields.

Load details layout improvements!

We are improving the load details layout by adding customer/pickup-dropoff locations on the details tab and making it visible always. We are also improving the layout of financial tab of load

Reporting!

We are working on bringing a reporting feature to report all the important KPI for the historical data. We are also working on bringing a trendline to show trends of how revenue/ driver performance/ load counts in the past.

Do let us know if any of the above feature excites you and you want to learn more on it!
