ASCAR has released its new Advantage-Plus dispatching software for Windows. Specifically designed for time-sensitive deliveries, Advantage-Plus streamlines the operation of any carrier wishing to automate its business. This software runs on any computer operating Windows 95/98, NT, or the new Millennium Edition. When operations require a more complex system, a company can graduate to ASCAR's ultra-reliable UNIX-based software, designed to handle 25,000 or more job orders per day.

With Advantage-Plus, online order entry offers automatic job ticket writing, a street map database, pop-up notes, and one-stroke function keys. Color dispatching graphically prioritizes dispatching assignments for operators. Automatic rating takes into account mileage zones, grids, weight, COD charges, and service-types. The settlements module keeps tabs on expenses by instantly calculating commissions for sales reps, as well as driver's fees and expenses. Integrated accounting features allow immediate posting of receivables, while the billing module invoices customers based on individualized payment schedules. Report Writer interprets any user-defined criteria to help management track their progress and optimize operations.
