Freight Tracker v3.22 Released

Firstly welcome to our new customers receiving this for the first time.

The notable changes in this release are fairly small. The 2 main ones are:
– The archive email that is sent with all emails leaving the system is now using BCC and not CC
– The pending page now works like the Depot page in that even after you have scheduled an MT container to be picked up from a customer, it will still appear on this page in the scheduled section until the MT pickup is complete. This way, what is on the Pending page is exactly what you have out on sites.

Apart from that we have been working hard on warehousing and FT4. We have made a decision to release FT4 screens as part of these small releases rather than attempting a massive change release. We think this will be easier for you to digest and faster for us to get the new screens to you. It will however make the system look a little disjointed in the short term. The first of these releases will be in 2 weeks when we will be putting the customer screens live.

We will be starting live trials of the mobile app with some of our clients over the next couple of weeks, so hopefully that will be moving fast soon too.

Some of you have been asking about warehousing. We are working closely with one of our clients who run a large warehouse and we are going live on the 1st August with them. We have 2 other smaller warehouse clients who have already signed up to be next off the list in late August early September. If you are interested in Warehousing, please let us know so that we can demo the system and schedule your rollout.

Freight Tracker v3.20 Released

This week we welcomed Aydin Ada to the team. Aydin is an experienced IT manager who will ultimately be responsible for customer support. We have been growing so quickly (4 new clients just last week) that we realise we need to act now to set up better and more professional support channels. We are looking forward to Aydin getting up to speed and whipping us into shape :-)

As with the past couple of releases our focus is on Warehousing and FT4 new screens. We are also putting renewed energy into our Linehaul module as we have many clients waiting for a Linehaul / General Freight module.

Below are the changes in this release. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

Freight Tracker v3.19 Released

FT 3.19 was released tonight. This was probably our smallest release yet as most of our time has been put into FT4 and Warehousing modules.

Many of you have been asking about the mobile solution. We have a number of tablets on order and we have identified a few companies to help us test them with their drivers. Once that is done and any final tweaks are made we will be sending an email to you all to talk about rollout options.

On another note, as you know we now have Andy in the team helping us with support related items, and we have also just hired Ben who will be working with us on Warehousing, Linehaul and General Freight requirements. We are ALSO looking for another general support person to come on board. So the team is growing in order to meet the demand of adding new clients and adding new features and modules.

Below is a list of the changes this release.
