We Have to File the IFTA

As the IFTA filings are moving online – most states and jurisdictions expect payment via credit card or debit card online now – we might as well face it.  The IFTA is forcing us to use computers.

For newer, younger drivers, they’ve grown up with computers.  They don’t know what life without a computer is like.  They’ve got the advantage on us with computers.  It’s natural for them.

We’ll admit to handing our cell phones to our teenagers to fix something.  Or ask a kid to set up the remote control for the TV.  They just do it.  And laugh at us.

The young driver is looking for the computer solution to the IFTA.  They expect it to be fast, accurate, and to handle the task so they can get on to the next thing.

We older drivers can learn from that attitude.  Whether we have a Sunday at home to figure the IFTA out by hand or not, the IFTA is due.

The real question is how long are you going to take to get it done?

What Else Could You Be Doing?

A nice April afternoon shouldn’t be wasted at a kitchen table with a pad of paper, pencils and a bottle of aspirin.  What else could you be doing?  You tell us.  Instead of trying to remember dates and miles, what would you like to do?

Maybe some of us need to learn from those young drivers.  

If you want to be doing something else – those young truckers are right.  The computer solution is the answer to the paperwork and headaches of the IFTA.  That’s a key component of the TruckingOffice trucking management solution.  The same numbers are used time and again in trucker paperwork – it’s time to make those numbers work for us instead of working to figure them out!

We’ll help you do it.  TruckingOffice isn’t going to sell you a program and walk away from you.  We’re here with support to help you learn how to use the program.  We’ll show you the steps of how to enter a dispatch – and then show you how little you have to do to get an IFTA report after that.  Just like getting the TV remote properly programmed, after you learn how to use it, it’s easy.  Simple, fast, and you don’t have to leave your recliner.

So put your feet up and let those crazy kids show you the future and how it’s making it easier for you.

Let’s make it even easier.  Want a free trial to try us out?  You got it.  We’ll give you a free trial and you can use it to enter all of the last quarter’s data and find out how fast TruckingOffice can compute your IFTA filings.  Then you’ll find something else to do.
