How is Avaal and Transplus for asset? We use tailwind, use to like it but we have almost tripled our fleet since we first got it and now we find it cumbersome and tedious to use.

Transplus, it works, it's doable - missing a few modern features mind you, but it does the job. Not sure I would jump to it, but it works.

The UI is drab, EDI is weak , Visual Dispatch/Resource leaves something to be desired, Limited .API capacities, The "cargo description" and order input is a bit tedious and cannot be narrowed or searched based on dims.

Much better options, but if you're just doing TL Van work, maybe this is right for you! (we're not)

I think AVAAL is probably the way to go and looks like they update it frequently and will add features for you if you want. I did a demo a year ago and just did another recently and it is night and day, so many changes, and has gained lot of the features that we wanted but avaal didn't have at that time. Also, I may add, it's surprisingly snappy for web-based software, with tailwind there is so much waiting around for pages to load that it adds a few minutes to each task.

We currently us Avaal for the brokerage side and our Transport side is making it's transition on Monday.

It has great features, the only issues with it (at least for our company) are;
We have a separate company for our Highway trucks and for our Local trucks. You can have multiple divisions under one company name, but it only syncs to one Quickbooks online if you use that (we do)
The Quickbooks online token for us disconnects and you have to go through that process every so often.
The Accounting system is very robust, but you have to have an item to work with anything and can't record transfers. It's great for single company groups. But for us we need to sync it out of there into QBO (which everything is synced over properly so there is no manual work on that side) so we can do transfers and reconciliations. You do have to press the Sync button manually for each tab, but that really isn't cumbersome - takes maybe 45 seconds to switch through each tab and press the button.

Overall it's great though, the planning screen and asset tracking screen is handy, and it integrates with our ELD provider (Samsara) so you can pull up the locations and logs in each trip.

We just switched, let's see how it goes. So far I really like it, everything seems pretty simple and straightforward to use. Our accounting really likes it so far, far better than tailwinds accounting section.

o it's leagues above Tailwind. I would say it's about 70-80% capable in comparison to a full accounting system.

If you work with an accountant, then you really don't need another accounting system as it keeps track of everything.

For us we don't, we do it in house so that's why we need the other system to help with the reconciliations and taxes so we don't need to calculate manually.

Hey Paul, did your TMS solution come through? I am still very interested to take a look.

Looking to hear about everyone's experience with AVAAL. For those that are using it, any limitations you wish you had known in advance?
