McLeod Software has completely re-engineered our web access portals for LoadMaster and PowerBroker in ways that will help you create a better branded internet presence for your company, and more importantly, create a better experience for your customers, carriers, and drivers.
McLeod’s Web Portals provide you with your own branded internet portal into your LoadMaster or PowerBroker system, and make it easy for your customers, company drivers, and carriers to identify and work with you online.
McLeod knows that security is at the forefront when allowing access to your environment. We’ve made it simple to control and maintain secure access of the Portals. Web users can be managed easily for customers, carriers, factoring companies, drivers, and locations in the Master files. To maintain a secure environment, you can turn off or lock a web user’s access at any time.
The Customer Portal provides the carrier’s or broker’s customer with real-time access to all of their load information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This new customer portal provides assigned logins to customers, so they have secure access to their orders, delivered and in-transit shipments, with a variety of display options to enhance their experience and response time. The portals give customers the ability to easily download document images with retrieval options.
Map views are available on orders displaying plotted mobile comm positions or positions from callin records. The visibility of orders reduces the need for calls and emails into the carrier or broker’s dispatch for ETA and “where’s my truck?” type calls.
The PowerBroker Carrier Portal is designed for the broker’s carriers to access the loads that have been offered and current load information, with flexible search options. Carriers have secure access to their available and delivered loads to provide tracking, trip documents, and callin information.
Brokers can get paid faster by providing carriers and owner operators with secure access to input the things needed to complete billing. Visual indicators throughout the screens help carriers and owner operators easily add shipping related documents by uploading the images directly to their loads, where they will automatically be indexed to support billing. The portal provides drag and drop capability for images which simplifies the carrier’s work to complete the process.
McLeod’s Factoring Company Portal provides a new, contemporary tool for brokers and carriers who work with factoring companies which allows them to quickly find the status of movements and reduce the calls necessary. Factoring companies have a clear and concise view in a payment pipeline for all the carriers or brokers. Factoring clerks get easy access to view the status of movements that have been paid or pending, in-progress or delivered, and pay information, such as line haul and other pay records, including advances to better understand the overall net pay for each movement. This portal provides the ability to add images for documentation, speeding up the settlement process.
McLeod’s new Location Portal provides a tool for carriers and brokers to give the staff of shippers at a specific location a physical shipping site, warehouse, or terminal, with visibility to loads coming in to and going out of their location.
