TMW Enterprise Transportation Software


 

Private fleets, brokers, third-party logistics providers, truckload carriers, and LTLs have all found success with TMW. This transportation management system (TMS) software is best at working with domestic, asset-based or non-asset based logistics and carrier operations.

We feel that TMW really understands what TMS needs to be successful. The software application works standalone or integrated with your ERP. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) within TMW help transportation operations stay on track and successfully meet their goals. Cost control tools and exception alerts allow potential roadblocks from catching users off-guard. An integrated web platform allows users to keep track of transportation status via any web browser. And dispatch, tracking, execution and rating tools help users keep track of what works, and what doesn’t.

Even the most complicated North American transportation operations can be aided by TMW Systems. The architecture allows the product to be scalable from small fleets or medium-sized brokers and 3PLs to enormous transportation networks with mixed operations that might include logistics services, dedicated carriage, brokerage and for-hire trucking. Extensive features such as auto-rating, load-board integration and web portal access ensure that the broadest needs of domestic transportation service providers can be met with this TMS

not for fast paced work environments

Bottom line with the software is:-
if you running large amount of fleet, booking large amount of freight, fast paced work environment where each operator constantly on the phone multi-tasking between 1 – 3 monitors/computers. I would never recommend it. This will change your attitude as the software will decrease your production ability. It’s made to make you Serve it.

if you small operating company with small amount of fleet, and if its priced right for you, I would recommend it.

Pros

visual.
colorful.
Teach extra high level of patience.































































Cons

Slow Motion.
Excessive unnecessary technical errors.
Excessive amount of steps.
Cannot utilize the software to serve YOU, the Software utilize YOU to serve it. “It’s like creating the beast that have no control over it”.

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.

Value for Money

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.

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.

None that I have figured out today, about as bad as Mcleod.

Pros

They offer a hosted solution and have an *expensive* but semi integrated add on CRM module. Most legacy users are still server/premise based however. Their tech support gets an 'A' for effort but 'F' for functionality and follow through.

Cons

Very antiquated, this technology has been around since the 80's, nothing *cutting edge* about TMW, and their suite application requires a dozen modules that are each a stand alone program. So you need 4-5 different applications/modules open at all times to do you job. Buggy, has daily glitches that require you to duplicate your work.

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.
