One question we hear a lot is; “What made you want to create trucking management software?” That’s certainly a fair question, and we would like to take just a couple of minutes to answer it.
My name is Allen. TruckingOffice was born out of my search for a faster, better way to do paperwork. I got my trucking authority back in 2002 after several years of being an OTR driver. However, while I knew the business of driving a big rig like the back of my hand, my recordkeeping skills weren’t the best. As a result, it was a struggle to just keep the company running, much less turn a profit.
Things began to change around 2006 when my dad (who writes computer programs) came on board to help run the business while I was recovering from an illness. After looking over my handwritten records and realizing that so much of the business was recorded only in my head, he and I both agreed that a little modern technology would work wonders for the business end of things.
The first version of TruckingOffice software was just designed to help with tracking and managing dispatches. Over time, we added features to handle invoicing, maintenance records, IFTA taxes, and other jobs. You can read more about all of TruckingOffice’s features here.
So why should you try our trucking management software? That’s another good question. Here are three reasons:
- TruckingOffice is simple to use, even if you don’t know a lot about computers. The point is to make dispatches and managing your own business easier, not more complicated!
- TruckingOffice has already helped thousands of owner-operators and brokers to find success. They have found that our tool can’t be beat for reliability and accuracy. With so many driving professionals already benefiting from TruckingOffice, why wouldn’t you give it a try?
- Last but certainly not least, TruckingOffice was made BY truckers FOR truckers. We know what features are essential for keeping your records accurate and audit-proof, and we built those into the software without adding extra fluff.
