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.
Logitude offers yet another customization option for more flexibility in setting up your user environment: the Role Customization facility makes it possible to define your own user roles based on the existing roles, grant authorizations to requested features for each custom role, and then assign users to these roles. To proceed with this process, you simply click the New Custom Role button in the User Roles tab.
The Exception Tracking mechanism allows users to report and manage shipment exceptions, and it comes with the following options:
The Company Dashboard Print option in the Reports page provides a printable version of the graphical information presented in the Activity Status area of the Dashboard. It shows up-to-the minute performance and progress information about your company in a selected time frame, with different types of visualizations. Different metrics can be used to present business performance: number of shipments, weight, profit or income (receivables).
In response to requests from customers in countries where invoices have to be printed through an external accounting system, in accordance with local tax regulations, we have further developed the Advanced Generic Interface. In addition to invoice details, the program now transfers all the necessary shipment data to the external accounting system so that the invoices can be printed via that system.
Logitude’s Document Library continues to grow. It now contains more document types that you can bring into your work environment:
To better track shipments, Logitude now displays location information with each status that concerns a port (e.g. arrived at port, departed, pick up, etc.). For example, Arrived (AMS) (Amsterdam port). Starting with new shipments you create, you will find this information next to the Status of the shipment, as well as in the Events tab and in Shared Logistics displays.
In the e-AWB Wizard, each status received from the airline automatically generates a status event. Status events appear in the Events tab, in the same way as all other shipment events.
A new option has been added to the System Defaults (access via Getting Started): Allow Agent Selection in Customer List of Values. When the option is enabled, it will be possible to select an agent as the Shipper in an export shipment or as the Consignee in an import shipment. Using this option, you will avoid managing duplicate records for the same partner.
The following columns are available for display in Queries:
A Print button has been added to the Accounts Payable Invoice pages to let you print vendor invoices.
The Unit of Measurement (UOM) field has been added to Accounts Payable invoice lines (Add Invoice Line dialog box).
The following improvements have been introduced to Shipments:
A new field – Declaration Number – has been added to the General page of the Shipment for entering the external customs reference number.
The PRO#, OBL Date and Trucker No. fields in inland shipments have been renamed as CMR/RWB #, CMR/RWB Date and Truck No., respectively. The modified field names appear in the Routings (Pickup and Delivery) and Overview tabs, as well as other related places.
While adding a new partner (Partners tab in shipments), the selected partner’s primary contact will display by default.
The Contact list that opens for choosing recipients in an email message (from the To field in a Send Message page) now includes all contacts in a single page, making it easy for users to browse through the list.
In messages sent from Logitude, numeric values such as weight will display in a formatted way. For example, 3010.4 will show as 3,010.40.
A new email notification option has been added in the CRM module, which enables sending a message when the stage of an opportunity changes.
The following have been added to the How To area of the Getting Started page:
