Fleet owner markets software he developed

Working with a team of software engineers, Ben Evans says he has developed an affordable Web-based software to save time and help him run his trucking business with greater efficiency, including fuel usage. Since employing Masslogics Software in 2005, Evans says he’s seen a noticeable gain in profitability for his trucking business.

The software, tailored specifically to the needs of small and mid-size operations, includes a logbook module that calculates transport costs per mile. Future releases will be able to track fuel prices on the road and help select faster, more efficient routes, Evans says; managers will be able to synchronize this information with payroll data to determine a load’s total transport cost per mile. All this business intelligence reporting can be accessed anywhere, at any time, with any Internet connection, he says. Companies can benefit from streamlined operations and reduced administration time, Evans says.

The Masslogics software is designed to integrate with Quickbooks and other standard service management software, and because the software is Web-based, there is no software to update or hardware to purchase. All services are available online by subscription for a monthly fee. For more information, go to www.masslogics.com.
