Enhanced Customer Portal: Adding Transparency and Satisfaction

We’ve upgraded our Customer Portal to offer more detailed shipment information. This new level of transparency ensures that your clients have comprehensive insights into their shipments, enhancing their overall satisfaction. You can customize what details to display by accessing the company settings within the general settings of the Customer Portal.

New Shipments Filter: Searching by Trucking Dates

To enhance the management of shipment schedules, we’ve introduced a new filtering feature that allows you to search shipments by specific trucking dates, such as pickup, delivery, and gate-out dates. This addition simplifies tracking shipments and improves the efficiency of organizing shipment data, accessible directly from the primary “Shipments” page.

Opportunities: Expanded Services and Destinations

Our CRM now supports adding multiple services and varying origins and destinations for each opportunity, a significant enhancement from the previous limitation of a single service per opportunity. This change caters to the complex requirements of freight forwarding operations involving multiple transportation stages and varied services.

Bulk Status Change for Shipments: Increasing Efficiency

We’ve introduced the Bulk Status Change feature to improve operational efficiency. This feature allows for simultaneous updates to multiple shipments’ operational and financial statuses, accessible via a simple upload in the “Shipments” section. This efficient tool saves time and reduces the effort required to manage large shipment volumes.

New Inquiries Stay Editable: Enhancing Flexibility

To provide greater flexibility in managing client interactions, new inquiries within our CRM can now be edited at any stage before finalizing an offer. This update ensures that all details remain accurate and reflect the latest client discussions, significantly enhancing the sales process’s reliability and efficiency.

Customer Approval Feature: Securing Business Transactions

We’re excited to introduce the Customer, this new function ensures all potential customers, agents, and subcontractors are thoroughly vetted and approved before you engage in any business activities with them. This feature improves your business’s compliance and operational security, ensuring that all engagements are pre-approved and aligned with your internal standards.

Key Features:

  • Controlled Access: Users can generate opportunities and drafts for new contacts but must receive approval before proceeding with offers or transactions.
  • Streamlined Approval Process: Requests for approval are sent directly to authorized users, who receive notifications to review and approve new contacts.
  • Flexible Permissions: Administrators can set permissions, allowing specific actions like creating credit notes and payments for contacts under limited approval.
