If you are looking for a program that gives you the basic, then this is it. Reports a basic and limited but if you are able to get everything in order from the get go then you will be good but if you don't start out on the right path it is hard to get things straight.

Pros

Simple.

Cons

Too Simple.

Our company transferred from Paragon to this tool about 2 years ago and it is a nice tool to have. We use this a lot primarily in route optimization solutions design.

Pros

A lot more functionalities than other routing tools
Can deal with complex solutions, including layover routes

Cons

Expensive
Hosted remotely on TMW server, so very slow in motion and frequently crashes
Not user friendly at all.. and a lot of the settings are very confusing or not working properly when complexity level elevates

Software for the future stuck in the past

Value for Money

A 32 bit single threaded application based upon Borland code written in Powerbuilder that needs as much CPU cycles as you can give it just to run at a normal pace. The UI is confusing, boring, and does nothing to lead a dispatcher from one logical point to another. Because they are trying to sell to every tyupe of trucking out there, it performs equally poorly for all, and requires a year of consultants tweaking it for your business- a process I believe they do to generate revenue per hour.

Pros

It ties into the accounting software and imaging software.

Cons

Every other aspect of this is bad. It takes users a year to learn it. If you want your dispatchers to stay on paper give them this. Tech support is slow getting back on issues.

Advice to Others

Get McLeod or anything else.

N/A
Likes Best

I don't believe I like anything at all about this program

Likes Least

Having to put the date and time for a function in 4 different places for each function. If each load has only three stops you have to enter times and dates in 12 different times. this adds up to lost revenue having to pay for all that time adds up at the end of the year

Recommendations

This program is very time consuming and aggravating to use. It often rejects commands for reasons that make no sense. Then you have to spend hours digging through every load a piece of equipment has done for the last month and fix a time conflict on a load that's already in billing and you cant alter the load!!! I guarantee people will get angry and quit a job out of sheer frustration. I know I would like to. If the company I work for wasn't as awesome as it is I would put up with this.

We use the TMW System in my office for our operations team and I cannot say it is the best but it is more than adequate overall.

Since joining the Trimble group, trying to access service for software glitches is next to impossible, even though our software support fees have always been and continue to be paid up to date. The responsiveness is mired in many layers of administration and the lack of sufficient knowledgeable staff to handle software issues. Case in point, I advised them of a software issue in November and I am still waiting for some one to address the issue. Jan 15, 2016. Rated customer service at one star because no stars was unavailable.
