New functionality being introduced for Aljex Software’s Vision platform allows users to create their own customized dispatch screens with the simple drag and click of the mouse, all at no additional cost.
Brokers, carriers and 3PLs can drag-and-drop entire date columns to and from dispatch displays, creating their own custom screens, Aljex said. Common columns include parameters such as “number of pieces,” “weight,” “pickup address,” or “delivery address.”
“Every user can have exactly the columns and selections they choose. Vision enables you to build your own screens with just the information you want. You can edit screens and selections for any individual transportation mode,” noted Aljex CEO Tom Heine.
Vision’s software also includes a map for tracking shipments, plus spreadsheet-style and mode-specific columns. With its new customizing functions, columns can be removed from, or returned to, the display screen as needed, with data is saved at all times, Heine pointed out.
“Then you can save the screen selection to go with the columns, so when you are looking at available shipments, it can show different columns than when you are viewing, say, missed check calls,” he explained said.
