Brokerware Updates July 30th, 2021

New Release Notes

  • New Account Sync
    • The new Brokerware accounting sync has finally been completed after many months of in-depth work. This sync resolves many of the headaches that you run up against in your day-to-day operations. Some of the primary sync errors are due to mismatched customers, carriers, AR invoices, and AP Invoices. Furthermore, it also previously required our team to log into your system to reinstall the sync tool anytime there was a change. This tool solves those issues and many more. Below you will find some of the new features included:
      • Features:
        • Customer Reconciliation:
          • This feature will automatically compare all of your customers within Brokerware vs all of your customers within your accounting system all at once. This will prevent current and future errors after your team have gone through the process of reviewing and mapping the data all at once.
        • Carrier Reconciliation:
          • This feature will automatically compare all of your carriers within Brokerware vs all of your carriers within your accounting system all at once. This will prevent current and future errors after your team have gone through the process of reviewing and mapping the data all at once.
        • AR Reconciliation:
          • This feature will compare all of your AR invoices within Brokerware vs all your AR invoices within your accounting system pointing out potential errors and things that may need your eyes to review.
        • AP Reconciliation:
          • This feature will compare all of your AP invoices within Brokerware vs all of your AP invoices within your accounting system pointing out potential errors and things that may need your eyes to review.
  • 3PL Systems API Changes & Additions:
  • New System Alert:
    • New alerts added to the AR and AP Invoicing screens will further alert your team that a duplicate pro number or invoice is being received for the same load.
  • LCR Spot Quote
    • Your team can now select a carrier rate and customize the customer quote directly from the LCR by utilizing the new ‘Spot Quote’ feature.

System Changes

  • Removed ‘Est. Delivery’ date from the BOL for shipments. This was removed due to a large amount of feedback of clients being incorrectly charged on ‘Guaranteed Delivery’ fees.
  • EDI 214 will now auto-match to shipments considered ‘Automated LTL’ after it is in dispatch status if not originated in an automated fashion.
  • Updated DAT Review to use ‘Est Linehaul Total’ if miles are under 250.
  • Zero dollar payables will no longer be included in the AP Export file.
  • Customer logins (your customer) can no longer edit/add addresses or cancel a shipment after the shipment has already been dispatched.
  • Changed the ‘Spot Quote’ feature on the LCR total to be read-only.
  • Added Averitt auth key support to the ‘Carrier Integrations’ page.

Issues Resolved

  • Resolved an issue surrounding ‘Tonnage Billing’ preventing it from rounding up to the nearest penny.
  • Resolved an issue surrounding ‘Edit Stops’ on the shipment profile preventing clients from swapping multiple stops on misc. shipments.
  • Rate Quote numbers will now once again pull for Midwest Motors.
  • Resolved an issue impacting Dayton electronic dispatching from working.
  • Resolved an issue impacting Averitt deficit weight.
  • An alert message has been added to warn your team if EDI 210 has not been setup for a payer in the event invoices are configured to send as EDI 210.
