Traditionally, towing companies relied solely on manual processes to conduct daily operations. However, in recent years, a number of software vendors have released software suites designed with towing companies in mind that can automate many processes and make the back office more efficient overall.
Towing software helps towing companies more easily handle day-to-day processes and operations, including:
We created this guide to help you better understand which systems are available—and which might be best for your organization. Here’s what we’ll cover:
What Is Towing Software?
Common Functionality of Towing Software
What Type Of Buyer Are You?
Pricing: Cloud-Based vs. On-Premise
Towing Software Integrations
Mobile Towing Software Applications
Many towing businesses use software to assist them with back-office functions and to streamline regular processes—from sending out trucks to tow vehicles to invoicing vehicle owners to ensuring trucks are properly maintained. These systems help companies upgrade from unwieldy methods of managing their business and operations, such as spreadsheets, non-specialized software and manual processes.
Towing software falls under the larger category of fleet management software. It typically offers the same standard capabilities found in most fleet management suites, including:
There are also some capabilities unique to towing software. These systems may come with some or all of the following:
|Lot management||Allows users to manage the lots in which towed vehicles are held. Stores vehicle information so users can quickly identify which vehicle belongs to whom.|
|Collections and lien processing||Allows users to automate their invoicing processes, send bills to vehicle owners and identify delinquent accounts.|
|Customer relationship management||Creates a database of the towing company’s customers (e.g., businesses and municipal entities it has contracts with), including their contact information, transactions and case history.|
|Motor club integration||Allows users to receive calls straight from motor clubs such as AAA. This integration can automatically send relevant driver information to the towing company and help determine whether accepting the towing request will be profitable.|
|Mobile accessibility||Offers mobile applications for tow truck drivers so they can update their location and estimated arrival time.|
|Auction management||Vehicle information is synced to integrated auction module, allowing the towing company or municipal lot to auction off unclaimed vehicles and preventing duplicate data entry. Auction module also manages buyer and seller information, tracks bids and assists with accounting complexities that result from state regulations.|
There are two main types of buyers when it comes to towing software. In general, most systems can accommodate either type—but some buyers may find that different systems better serve their specific needs.
Emergency services. If your company provides emergency towing services, you may wish to have some additional features. For example, some vendors offer features that allow lost or stranded motorists to provide their geographical coordinates via GPS in their smart phones and can send their exact coordinates to the towing company.
Private towing company.
