We get calls asking about our app sometimes.   “It’s not an app,” we say.  “It’s a web-based software program. You can access from anywhere you have an Internet connection.”

A lot of people don’t understand that.  People might say, “But I want an app” and hang up.  They think an app is the modern choice.

Smartphone Apps and Web-Based Programs

A smartphone can run programs on its own computer processor inside the phone. We play games, we send messages, we check Facebook and play podcasts on apps.  Hang around some millennials and you’ll probably hear them complain about maxing out their smartphones.  That’s the problem.  A phone only has so much memory and even adding a memory card isn’t always going to provide enough for your business records.

Wouldn’t you hate to find out while you’re on the road you can’t use your app?

Or worse, lose your phone with all of your business records on it?

So that’s why we don’t sell an app.  Too much at risk and not enough security to protect you.

Why web-based trucking software?

It does seem old-fashioned in a world of apps and access, but we know how important your business data is.  Of course, it’s not just about getting paid – it’s about the records themselves.  You’ve got to prove your

  • Miles per state for the IFTA
  • Vehicle maintenance for the DOT
  • Expenses for the IRS.

Do you want that data only on a phone that you can lose or can drop into a sink or could be stolen?

We didn’t think so either.  That’s why TruckingOffice isn’t just an app.  It’s more.

You want a program that you can use in your cab with your phone, but keeps your data safe and accessible wherever you are.  Then if you’re on the road, you can get to your TruckingOffice account wherever you have a wifi connection or on your phone’s data plan.  Back at home, you can get the same data on your desktop.  Your accountant can access it at her office when it’s time to file your income taxes.  Get audited by the DOT?  Your information is easily accessed to prove you’re a responsible trucker.

Upgrading apps vs. web-based programs.

Apps have to upgrade periodically.  You’ve got to keep track of upgrades – going to the App Store or the Google Play Store, downloading and worrying about losing your data.

That’s the beauty of TruckingOffice – we take care of the upgrades.  You won’t even notice.  We’ll manage it all after extensive testing to be sure your service won’t be disrupted.

If you can’t imagine not having an app – don’t worry.  You will always get to TruckingOffice through the browser on your phone.

TruckingOffice’s web-based trucking software is a great way to maximize your profit while minimizing your stress.
