BigChange
In terms of accounting, our current accounting software Exchequer does not talk to BigChange, therefore there should be customized reports created to support it. The most complicated option is testing the report and understanding what is needed. The best job BigChange does is job related as described in previous questions.

McLeod Software
On my daily tasks, it helps me to track every order and provide us with detailed information, logging times, [and] user's interactions. Not only [being] able to track but to build and receive orders thru its transmission system is good because it is integrated with a huge amount of companies world wide, reducing the effort and costs in contracting several apps to do just one thing.

  • Dispatching management- with all its features we can be sure that McLeod will cover all the possible needs when dispatching a load.
  • Billing and documentation- its platform also provides several ways to gather all our documentation and keep them recorded.
  • GPS tracking- its implementation on GPS is beyond of our expectations. It works perfectly with the most known GPS apps such Macropoint, Keeptruckin, LoadTrack and more.

McLeod has several implementations and is always looking for new ways to get up-to-date. Also, it is stable which is a nice thing when you are a big company handling thousands and thousands of loads every day. We are not only building loads but selling, tracking, dispatching, billing them, and all is being done in the same app.

  • Looks a bit old- we are in a new age of apps with fresh looks and responsive designs, however, this does not impact our business but we think that using a new face will help with the training curve.
  • It might delay the operation a bit because we need to access different menu items to get to one specific point.
  • A positive thing would be that with all the amount of features it has. McLeod is always trying keep the platform stable, and we know it is not easy to maintain a software like that.
