Logitude World provides the first true online freight forwarding software solution. It combines the power of cloud computing and modern technologies with a deep understanding of the Freight Forwarding Industry.
Since Logitude’s SaaS solution is rich in software modules, Release Notes are regularly issued to keep users up-to-date about new features and enhancements, as well as changes that were made since the previous release.
This version of the Release Notes introduces new features and functionalities, and describes existing features that were enhanced.
Document Management Tool
The new document management tool has been designed to enable users to manage their documents easily by accessing the document library directly from a shipment or quote, and choosing from a variety of templates the ones that best suit their business. The Add Document from Library option in the Docs Out page of an entity lists the documents that have not been included in the entity. It shows when the templates were last updated, and lets you preview the templates and add them to the entity at a click.
The Print option has gone through a facelift, and it provides the following novelties:
? You can choose a template via the Templates dropdown list, without having to go through editing. Logitude immediately builds the document based on the selected template.
? The Manage Templates option can be used to set a template as default, mark a template as inactive, and edit the template. Via this option, you can also add templates from the document library.
? The Edit option in the Print window lets you edit the document before printing.
? The Additional Printing Fields of a document now appear in the Print window. From here, you can use the Edit Printing Fields option to edit the fields.
? The last update time of the document displays in the Print window, and if any changes were made in the shipment in the meantime, just clicking the Update Now button delivers an updated document.
Message Send Option
The new and enhanced template management options have also been added to the Send Message page that is used for sending notices and notifications to partners.

AP Invoice for Multiple Shipments
In response to customer requests, we have developed an option that enables the user to record a payable invoice containing charges for more than one shipment, in a single process. This option will save you time, while allowing you to double-check the invoice totals. To use this option, go to Accounting | Accounts Payable | New.
We have developed a new interface for transferring invoice data to external accounting systems – Logitude Advanced Generic Interface. With this interface, the transfer program generates an XML file that includes invoice details as well as the shipment data.
Customer Potential vs Actual
This report is designed as a sales management tool that helps you track customer performance for a selected time frame, comparing potential levels to actual results. The information is presented per product, for customers you have ticked for tracing (enabled the Activity Watch option for customer). Sales can be measured by the number of shipments, TEU, Chargeable Weight and Revenue. Via the report you can drill down into the customer records.
Customer Additional Services
With this report you can monitor the customers you have ticked for tracing (enabled the Activity Watch option for customer) and the additional services they might potentially use or are already using. The report can be filtered by the different additional services you provide and by business units.
