AS Safety Director of SEC Transportation Inc I can easily find driver information such as all active and inactive drivers. Also I can get information on our trucks and trailers including if it is company oned equipment or owner/operator equipment.

Pros

Again it is user friendly. You do not have to jump through a lot of hoops to get the information you need. The information can be easily updated.

Cons

The information would be more easily found if it was all in alphabetical order. Also it would help if dates were in chronological order.

STRAIGHT FORWARD, CLEAN AND SIMPLE INTERFACE . LIKE THE FACT YOU CAN ACCESS IT FROM PRACTICALLY ANYWHERE AND ENJOY THE SAME FUNCTIONALITY EVEN ON A CELL PHONE

Cons

* NO CARRIER ON BOARDING INTERGRATION
* LOAD REPORTS- SHOULD NOT HAVE TO RE-ENTER SEARCH CRITERIA EVERY TIME YOU BACK OUT OF THE SCREEN , A SEPERATE WINDOW WOULD BE AWESOME.
* DELAY AND RE-SORT THAT OCCURS WHEN POSTING LOADS TO LOAD BOARDS FROM WITHIN THE SOFTWARE NEEDS TO BE REMEDIED.
* ON LOAD REPORTS, WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO SEE CARRIERS PHONE #'S IN THE EXPORTED EXCEL SHEET

Pros

User friendly - Easy to learn an navigate through each tab.
Easy to correct errors
Easy to find a particular tab or info you need to find in a timely manner
Easy to upload documents
I like the fact that frequently used info can be saved in the system and doesn't have to be retyped

Cons

Too many taps - I feel like all this could be put in one page... just scroll down
Deleting attachments can be quite an undertaking - It should be a 1 click delete button
Tab for inputting load info ie address, should be the same as the one we use for inputting the pick up and delivering times when adding a new load

I LIKE THAT IT IS EASY TO FOLLOW. ITS EASY TO SHOW PEOPLE HOW TO USE IT WHEN TRAINING. I ALSO LIKE THAT IT SAVES THE LOAD WHENVER YOU HAVE TO GO OUT OF IT THAT MAKES IT ALOT EAISER TO SAVE AND GO BACK IN.

Cons

SOMETIME IT FREEZES. WHENEVER YOUR PUTTING IN THE DELIVERY PLACES IT MAKE THE FIRST STOP ALWAYS APPEAR AND YOU HAVE TO GO IN IT AND CHANGE THE NAME AGAIN. IF YOU DO NOT RELIZE IT DID THIS IT WILL SEND WITH ALL DELIVERY ADDRESSES BEING THE SAME WHEN ITS NOT. THIS HAS HAPPEND TO BE EVERY TIME UNLESS THE ADDRESS IS ALREADY ADDED.

The load management system works great. It's very easy to quickly switch back and forth from load to load.

Cons

My biggest issue with it is looking up a carrier you are not set up with or putting a carrier on a load. if you type the mc quickly the system either will not find it or select the wrong carrier. we have been having to delete one number then reenter it so the system pulls up the right company.

One major benefit I got from this software is time. It free's up time by making everything organized.

Pros

What I like most about this software is the ease it creates to be able to organize and keep track of load's and daily tasks.

Cons

The thing I like least would be after searching load(s) you can't go back without having to research load(s) over again.

Operation efficiency and report analytics at my finger tips.

Pros

I've used and researched quite a few TMS in the past and I chose ASCENDTMS, hands down, over any of the others. The program is very user friendly, the support staff is amazing and the overall analytics meets my operational needs.

Cons

Cost! With each user having individual access, it gets pretty expensive. I wished that ASCENDTMS utilized a discount tier system.

Customer service is a big thing, if something isn't working and I call or email, they always respond very quickly. Its very easy to use, even self training by clicking the links and following the directions at each click

Pros

Multiple links are with each load, I love this system. There are video clips for training. Also, I love the Customer Directory that is incorporated with Ascend. Very easy to factor loads. Customer service always responds very quickly.

Cons

Messages. The message ICON is at the bottom, would love to see it at the top and highlighted. I had put in a suggestion for it, but it is already being worked on.

Pros

I have been using Ascend TMS for just over a year now, and it has really made my keeping up with loads and posting them so much faster and easier. I can keep track of loads by status and that makes checking on carriers a lot faster. I keep a paper trail as well but that is my personal preference, you could go just about paperless if you want to. So many benefits to keeping up with accounts receivable an payable. Very short learning curve to get everything figured out on the best way to use.

Pros

The layout of this software is simple to use and easy to look at. It puts everything I need right in front of me.

Cons

I am not a fan of the accounting portion of this system or the fact that once something is filtered, it will not stay that way. PCS allowed for a portion to be saved. I also dont like that when we go to change the pick up and return locations from one place to another, it removes all other info (PO#, cargo description, etc).

The ease of use. The software is very intuitive. I am beginning the process of hiring new agents, and I fully expect them to be able to get a handle on the software within a day, and to be experts within a week. This is the easiest to use, most intuitive TMS I have seen.

Cons

I wish there was a feature to input, and then search by, Carriers' available equipment and states of operation.
