Argos Software has been providing a proven Freight Management System (FMS) to the trucking industry since 1984. Our focus has been “for hire” carriers, contract carriers and freight brokers. The range of our users is extensive and includes truckload, LTL, container, refrigerated, agricultural, tanker, bulk, pneumatic, dump, auto, truck, messenger, delivery, specialized/heavy haulers, riggers, contract carriers, freight forwarders, and freight brokers. Some users are completely local while others are exclusively long haul, with most in between.
Many users take advantage of the integrated nature of ABECAS Insight™ and use most of our trucking related modules, including dispatching, billing, rating, driver/contractor/carrier settlements, receivables, payables, accounting, payroll, equipment and facilities management, parts inventory, fuel taxes, and warehouse management. Some even take advantage of the Activity Based Costing built into ABECAS™. Others, on the other hand, primarily use our FMS for its billing, settlements and receivables capability. The use of dispatching is not required.
The ABECAS Insight™ FMS is tailored to the various aspects required to operate a trucking company, regardless of type.
- order entry,
- resource (truck, trailer and driver) tracking,
- trip building and control,
- freight billing,
- settlements processing for drivers/contractors/outside carriers.
The freight billing allows multiple charges to be automatically displayed, with automatic rating, if required. Interfaces are available for ALK´s PC-Miler™ and Rand McNally´s MileMaker™, for on-board computers, such as Qualcomm and Peoplenet, and for fuel cards, such as Comdata, T-Check, EFS, and TCH. EDI and web interfaces are also available. With our communications software you can fax, e-mail and send/receive EDI documents.
