"Meets our transportation needs"

What do you like best?

It's easy to enter all the information, quick and simple directions, and easy to search when needed.

What do you dislike?

Once you get the hang of it, and used to how to use it, it's great. My progression into understanding was slower until I used it more often.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

From my perspective, Loadmaster helps me track employee license expirations as well as medical card expirations so that we aren't left in the dark wondering if employees are running legal.

"We use LoadMaster to track deliveries, maintain accounts, and do payroll"

What do you like best?

The thing that I like best about Loadmaster is the all-in-one package. We can track deliveries, do our payroll, and maintain our accounts.

What do you dislike?

We use a fairly specific subset of what LoadMaster is capable of, so if anything it would be great to beable to get onsite or online training tutorials for users and those supporting the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have specific delivery and tracking needs this is a great product. We were going to develop a custom software package to maintain our business, but this product does everything we need and more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed almost a custom solution for our shipping and tracking system. This seriously is an all-in-one product where we can manage everything we need to with this software.

What Fleet Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"New User"

What do you like best?

LoadMaster has several advantages in navigating from one screen to another with the click of a button. As soon as I began getting used to it, it because very easy to navigate also. It is also web based which is a plus.

What do you dislike?

For us, the speed of maneuvering is a little slow at times. We have also had some issues with down time. It also isn't really user friendly for new users. I haven't been able to track the loads as well yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You will want to have an extensive training because there is so much that can be done with LoadMaster. The more you know, the better you can use it. This has been a really good tool to be able to navigate and keep track of our trucks, loads, and drivers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are better able to keep track of our loads and navigate from our loads to the trucks to the drivers' profiles with greater access.

"LoadMaster has provided our team with the tools to increase sales and drive productivity. "

What do you like best?

The reporting functionality. The ability for our team to see the loads they are moving. The EDI capability. The ability to export all data to excel. We are able to better run our business. The system is a full ERP system. The field Marshall tool is great.

What do you dislike?

The visuals look super old. The dashboards look worse than windows 93. The system moves slow. It is not web based. Difficulty pulling some data. No way to do a debit / credit memo. It is impossible to adjust the invoice without using McLeod. We have a few businesses we run through LoadMaster and need to adjust these ourselves. Using the slow and I mean slow support of McLeod makes our team wish to look elsewhere. We are currently reviewing our TMS strategy and are getting bids from other companies due to to some of our internal frustration. Our operations team seems to be satisfied enough with the system. But, we really need further flexibility to ease our use and ability to change things on the fly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the full functionality of McLeod. Integrate the CRM and pricing tools. It is necessary and required.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have interfaced LoadMaster with PeopleSoft. The integration is terrible and we are not sure which system to trust. This decision was made by our CIO which was a terrible decision. However, we are able to move more freight. We have visibility on all of our loads.
