Our November 2018 software update will be rolled out this week! Enjoy an extensive list of new features and enhancements, including a number of changes to the Web Portal, new hopper scale support, improved app functionality, and more.
Also, be on the lookout for two brand new add-ons coming soon after this update — Dispatching and Hauler Pay.
Make your dispatching and product delivery system more efficient. Assign trucks, schedule and track deliveries, and communicate with individual drivers in real-time with our SMS text message alert system. Also in the works is our powerful Dispatching app for mobile.
Hauler Pay Module
Similar to our Billing module, the Hauler Pay module allows you to generate hauler payable statements based on your FastWeigh ticketing data. Make adjustments, email statements directly to trucking companies, and streamline the hauler payment process.
