Order Management | Profit Tools

By: Profit Tools  09-12-2011

Profit Tools Order Management modules and features make complete and current information about every shipment you’re working on available to everyone in your office who needs it.  The Order Management system also watches to make sure approaching deadlines and appointments are not forgotten, and saves labor on otherwise costly manual functions.


Profit Tools Order Management makes it easy to capture everything you know about a shipment, as soon as you find out.  Appointments, locations, reference numbers, equipment, freight — it all has a place in the Profit Tools shipment window, and it’s all readily accessible on one screen.  Regardless your type of operation, Profit Tools can accurately capture your shipment details, whether that means cross-docks and multiple stops for LTL, chassis pickups and yard moves for intermodal, or dropped equipment of any kind at the customer.  The ability to capture what’s really going on, no matter how complex, is what makes Profit Tools Flexible Software for Flexible Carriers.


From the moment you create your shipment in Profit Tools, everyone in your office who needs to work on it can see and update the information they need.  Profit Tools will even watch your shipments when you’re working on other things, so deadlines like waiting time and appointments, last free dates for container storage and per diem, and container releases and cutoffs don’t get missed.  As you know all too well, one mistake will eat up your profits on ten good loads.  Profit Tools makes sure you get it right.


The one thing for certain in trucking is that plans change.  Need to bring a trailer or container to your yard because the customer’s not ready for it?  Need to swing freight on the road from one trailer to another so a driver won’t run out of hours? We know these things happen and Profit Tools has the flexibility to track it.  Many systems would have you bury these situations in the notes where you’ll lose track of the equipment, the billing, or both.  Profit Tools was built from day one to handle not just what’s supposed to happen, but what REALLY happens.
