About Consignmate

Consignmate is an easy-to-use, cloud-based transport management system. It helps manage all transport jobs, plan and dispatch jobs to drivers, monitor drivers’ pickups and deliveries in real-time, and capture sign-on, arrival-time, and departure-time.

There is support for paper-based consignments. Connotes can be printed and scanned once signed (POD Storage and retrieval). It helps automate job pricing and invoicing with a single click. Invoices can be posted to Xero, MYOB, and QuickBooks. Invoices also include a link to POD.

Save data entry with a Customer portal where the customer can create the consignment. Consignments can also be uploaded via EDI. Freight tracking is available at both item and job levels.
A subcontractors module provides manifesting with cost calculation. You can produce an RCTI /subcontractor payment advice. This can be posted to Xero, MYOB, or Quickbooks.
Job-related email/SMS notifications can be automatically generated from Consignmate. Users can notify customers, senders, or receivers of picked up or delivered jobs.

Would rate it a 6 out of 10 but that is only due to the program still being in development however trust it will be fixed up within the next 6 months ... hoping the maintenance module is released soon as this was a selling point also!!

Pros

Easy system to implement and use from inputting jobs, to tracking and invoicing! App is easy to use for our drivers. Glen & his team are very responsive and do not have to deal with call centres.

Cons

The program is still in development stages and have had some teething issues getting the app right for our drivers, which has upset some employees. Unable to amend electronic PoDs which can be frustrating when drivers accidently take photos not required or enter the incorrect times... other minor issues which I am sure will be ironed out in the future.

Reasons for Switching to Consignmate

I enquired to Glenn Tunny about using ImageSoft as previously had used this program at another Transport company and found it to be a really wonderful FMS and the maintenance module was easy to use. Glenn told us about the new product Consignmate and chose this program as Glenn & his team are generally very responsive and helpful with all enquiries!

Response from Imagesoft

Thanks for your feedback and I will take your comments and suggestions on board. I will look at adding the POD editing features as suggested.

It was clunky in the initial stages until we ironed out some issues. The mobile system is still clunky and bulk signoff needs to be simplified. Some areas around delivery, particularly errors that cannot be rectified. Overall the sytem is serviceable but you do need someone in the business to be fully conversant to fix issues on the run

Pros

The product has integrated some functions with our key partner VFS which save time/resources. Our internal Con Note production is of better quality and more professional looking. The ability to track invoicing is advantageous

Cons

Some steps are too long to achieve a simple process. Setting a new client which may be a Client/Collection Site/Delivery site should be one step

Response from Imagesoft

Thanks for your feedback. We will have a new mobile version available very soon with some of the features you have requested. I will give you a call and see what other requirements you have. We appreciate your feedback and ideas. All of this goes into our product development and will only improve our software.
