Aljex Software has introduced E-Statements to its hosted Aljex TIN application. Aljex TIN (Transportation Intermediary Network) is a map-oriented management software for freight brokers, 3PLs, and other transportation providers.
“When a customer says he didn’t receive an invoice or PODs, one click will email an accounts receivable statement with links to all the relevant data, including document images,” said Tom Heine, president of Aljex Software. “Our customers don’t have to find a particular invoice then search through documents or digital document systems for the correct backup. It’s all right there and it’s a great time saver.”
E-Statements are a free upgrade to the hosted Aljex TIN application.
Now an Aljex user can go to a customer page, merely move the mouse over the Credit Limit Button, and two figures will automatically appear in a box. The first figure is the amount of credit billed to that customer but not yet paid. The second figure is the total of customer shipments in house, perhaps still being worked on, but not yet billed.
Together, the figures show how much credit the transportation provider has extended to the customer – whether the amount has actually been billed or not.
Unbilled credit is comprised of shipments a broker has committed to handle and represents costs on one hand and what will soon be accounts receivable on the other.
“Credit is the number one concern for most of our clients. The new features are an excellent way to put important information in front of dispatchers or anyone with the authority to accept a shipment or load,” said Heine. “E-Statements are the ultimate credit and collections tool.”
