This software is very useful for and if you only require 2 users, you can have for free. Very easy to deploy and no hardware cost. Internet connection however is required.

Like any other product, it will have things that don' t work great, however they have an excellent customer service that will do anything they can to accommodate each customer's needs.

Pros

It organizes all of the loads so that they are easily viewed and I know the stage each load is in. It even allows the customization of tabs and load stages.

Pros

AscendTMS is easy to use and easy to learn. It has a functional interface that is still simple and clean. It is also one of the cheapest options out there.

Cons

For the possible down sides, I would say there are certain aspects of the user experience that could be made smoother. But I know the developers are working on new features all the time.

Ascend has given me the confidence to grow my business and not get lost creating invoices, payroll and organizing drivers.

Pros

The ability to create payroll reports and export invoices all based on the original load information.
The ability to search a load number based on the BOL, VRID, or whatever number was entered at the loads origination.
The ability to customize the columns while viewing loads.
The ability to send invoices with POD's and Confirmation Sheets attached

Cons

The invoices imported to QB do not contain the description data from the invoice in Ascend. Other than that, the software seems to be bulletproof.

This software does EVERYTHING I need it to do to run my company. It will probably do all you need it to do as well.

Pros

This software is crafted by industry professionals who know what you need to succeed as a dispatcher, truck driver, owner operator, fleet owner or as a broker. They continually look for ways to improve the system and they resolve any issues quickly. I have only had to reach out for assistance a few times, but when I do the team at AscendTMS is always quick to respond with helpful info.

Cons

About once every 3 months, the software will go down for about 15 minutes. This is always a very short disconnect and is always back up and running shortly. For the price and the amenities, I barely feel justified in mentioning this little hiccup.

Love this software. Anything that makes my job easier is well worth it!

Pros

Ease of use, but it gets the job done. Integrates with QBO which is a major plus. Updates in real time.

Cons

Wish the credit limit function had the ability to issue warnings to someone entering a load, and/or lockout for a customer over their limit.

AscendTMS is flawless. Best software I have ever used.

Pros

This software is so simple to use my 90 year old Grandmother could even do it. This is coming from the women who comments "like" on Facebook pictures.

Cons

They need to fix the carrier asset page. Whenever you put in a carrier it always puts "HEADS UP! This carrier has not been marked OK TO LOAD."

I have been using Ascend for just under a year now and have loved it. It really helps simplify my day and keep things moving. From building loads to making check calls, Ascend helps keep me organized. I would highly recommend using Ascend, you will be happy you gave it a shot!

Pros

Fantastic and easy to use one stop site for building, managing and keeping track of loads on the road.

Cons

Website works fine on my mobile, but would love to see a mobile app for Ascend to make building loads on my phone easier.

The ability to customize carrier profiles, location information and line items for invoicing make this
program top notch. Also available support is great!

It is user friendly, and if you need to reach someone they are always available. That's big because in today's world customer service has gone down. Not with Ascend!

Cons

None to report. I really have nothing bad to say. I guess it would be nice if they added a CRM and a full accounting system. Not their focus, but with such a great TMS I bet those products would be awesome as well if they rolled them out.

one place to see entire company and keep trucks under one place.

Pros

Easy to put each load in and track all your drivers in one place. Then the ease of sending in the accounting piece to the factoring company is very useful. I like the ability to find thousands of companies and addresses already loaded and made the accounting and load building process much easier.

Cons

The templates are not very easy to set up and implement. Easier to just build each load. Entering and updating your trucks is a bit time consuming, but once done is good. Editing loads is a bit tricky too but can be overcome.

I would give it 5 stars, but the one thing it's missing is maintenance reports for trucks. If that could be added, then I could see it being a great software program

It does not allow you to keep certain reports on you fleet like Trucking Office does. We have signed up for Premium, but those reports are not there. We will have to keep using Trucking Office until then.

Ease of Use & customizability are key in my line of work. I can control my own views and also can reach someone every-time I try to get tutorials when needed.

I think there should be a 24 hour support line. Also, the system tends to go under temporary construction quite a bit at times of the day I can't afford it to. I will say the frequency of this has certainly decreased in recent months.

Daniel - thanks for the amazing review. Yes - we we're adding so many new customers every day (were are at over 13,300 customers as I write this) that we had to quadruple our server capacity and our horsepower (again!!!). That's why you've noticed significant improvements in AscendTMS response times and speeds. Again - thanks for the amazing support from you and your entire team, Daniel!
