Trucking Secret #1 – Information

Real-Time, Totally Integrated Systems give you up-to-the-minute information and total control over your company!

(This post is part of the 7 Secrets to Phenomenal Success in the Trucking Industry series)

One of the biggest frustrations for most company owners and managers in the trucking industry is not having the critical information they need to make fast decisions. Sometimes you need a “big picture” analysis (which can have a huge effect on your financing), while other times you are focused on micro-decisions, like how to assign resources based on the outstanding orders you have this minute. Whatever the case, you are going to want detailed and current information to make your business decisions.

An up-to-the-minute Executive Briefing

An up-to-the-minute Executive Briefing

Axon’s Online Executive Briefing system provides customized, key information instantly. It displays an up-to-the-minute “snapshot” of the information that is critical to you and your key people. You simply choose the info that you want to automatically display whenever you access your system. Net profit, bank account balance, outstanding credit lines, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, owner/operator liability, outstanding orders — it’s up to you. Each member of your management team can have a customized Executive Briefing Screen of their own. This provides the easiest access to critical business information you’ve ever seen.

In Axon your data is updated instantly. There is no old-fashioned “posting” process required. You eliminate costly delays and confusion. You get up-to-the-second information at any time. Axon includes a bulletproof built-in audit-trail system. When a transaction enters the system, every program that it affects is updated instantly. Real-Time Transaction Processing lets us take it up a notch, with incredible management tools like our Executive Briefing System.

 Built-in Searching and Reporting Puts the Power in Your Hands

Take a close look at the information flowing through your business. There are dozens of places where information must be entered multiple times (look at how your orders are handled, your invoicing process, how the information related to drivers and owner/operator pay is handled — it’s only the beginning). Even worse, look at the places where information is entered — either onto the computer, or in a manual ledger or document. How much information are you entering that doesn’t go anywhere? How many spreadsheets are you using to work with some of your data? It can’t be accessed on any report, found through any search on your system, or used to assist with any management decisions. It just disappears!

With Axon, if you enter it on the system you can find it later — quickly and easily. Axon includes the most powerful information search and retrieval capabilities available, as well as easy-to-use custom report design tools to let you build your own reports.

No other software on the market offers you as much control over your data.

Jackie MacEwan, Roadex Services Ltd. Saskatoon SKThat’s probably my favorite thing about Axon; the reporting systems. Compared to other programs, with Axon you can find any piece of information, with hardly anything to go on, with the click of a button. I had a customer phone me with a very small bit of information on a load we hauled four years ago and with the information they gave me — I believe it was the driver and the city we delivered it to — I was able to find that load from four years ago. If a customer calls me and wants to know if we have a specific RV in our system, it’s a matter of putting in the serial number and doing a search, and immediately I can tell them if we have ever hauled that unit. It’s stuff like that, that just isn’t offered anywhere else, that has made a huge difference.    — Jackie MacEwan, Roadex Services Ltd. Saskatoon SK
