A great option for our company

Reviewed a year ago

As I describe it in the "pros" aspects, our ("our" cause not only me use BuyCo, the entire company also does) experience has been fantastic, it gives our clients and ourselves the tranquility of knowing where our containers and packages are at all times.

Pros

Such a sensational product!! Beautiful from all sides and easy to use, its work is done perfectly and the functionalities it offers are fantastic. With BuyCo we can keep track of all our shipments (we are an export-import & real estate company).

Cons

Honestly, I can't find anything to criticize, everything has gone perfectly during this year of use.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for your feedback! We're really glad you enjoyed BuyCo and we really appreciate the time you took to write such a review!

Pros

Easy navigation. Shipment tracking function.

Cons

The flag indicating a new document disappears after the document is just opened, even if the document was not downloaded. It would be helpful if there is a icon which indicates the document was downloaded or not.

Vendor response

Hello, Thank you for your feedback! You idea has been added to our roadmap and will be available in the coming weeks

The best software to import / export!

Reviewed a year ago

In general terms, everything has been great! We are very satisfied in the company with BuyCo.

Pros

First things first: its ease of use, it's so intuitive and it has a clear interface, the functions it has are great, such as the tracking. The customer support is also very well behaved, they always help in case of need. In short, it's the best option for importers and exporters!

Cons

It could improve the notifications, like new shipments, and I would also like to have a dark mode, it's more comfortable to look at.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Pros

utilisation facility and document sharing

Cons

search schedule is not 100% functional When i amended un shipment, i see old information until the company confirmed

Vendor response

Hello, Thank you for your feedback! We are setting up direct connections with ocean carriers in order to eliminate any discrepancy. We already have 2 carriers connected direct, and more will follow in the next months :-) Regarding booking amendments, we display the 'old' information because this is what the shipping line actually confirmed. We think that showing requested information that have not been confirmed could cause operational issues. Still, we are taking your point of view into account.

Very good, but still room for perfection

Reviewed 4 years ago

It's a good system that allow user to manage and trace shipments, beyond restrictions in time and national region. But still need some improvement to make it more user-friendly.

Pros

Allow user have clear picture of the order/shipment processing, organize docs., and easy to trace shipment. Reduce workload and save time to send email with docs.

Cons

When click on shipments marked as new shipment, it will be right away moved to dashboard where you have all the shipments. So it's not easy to find the shipment you just click, sometimes, you don't even remember the reference no., so you have to spend a lot of time searching it in the dashboard. Better to have new function to allow user to manually move shipment to dashboard, after all info./docs. are read/download.

Vendor response

"Hello, Thank you for your feedback! Regarding documents it will soon be possible to decide manually if they are 'new' or 'seen'. This should solve your problem. We will think about something similar for new shipments."

Nice and useful software

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

We used to receive the shipping documents via email from the HQ but I find easier to find the documents / data afterwards instead of searching through many emails.

Cons

Not least but there are few points I still do not understand about the functions in this system because we are doing the testing for now so I would like to ask the Customer Service at HQ when I have questions. Regarding the vessel schedules, sometimes there seems to be discrepancies between the data and information we have receive from shipping company (local office) so we tend to rely on the information which we checked by ourselves.

Buyco the new way to quickly communicate

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

We are winning a lot of time by using BUYCO. We are directly in touch with the forwarder and we don't need anymore to ask our transport department to forward our emails.

Cons

We have to connect everyday to our account. It would be better to stay connected.

Vendor response

Hello, Thank you for your feedback! For security reasons, we require BuyCo users to connect to the platform on a daily basis since security of your DATA is our top priority.

Basically good

Reviewed 4 years ago

Basically it's good and user-friendly. :-)

Pros

1) can have a quick look to see all shipments to our countries 2) can download shipping docs directly 3) can learn the most updated vessel ETA status

Cons

The icon shows "1" of informing new docs available under "Shipment with New Docs". The whole row will be gone after my click. It would be nicer if the whole row remains without "1" pop-up, we then can come back to download it. From time to time we will be interrupted during the check of BUYCO. This would be a big help, no need to check one by one under "New Shipment" and find out which one is missed.

Vendor response

Hello, Thank you for your feedback! We are developing improvements on the platform to solve the issue you mentioned. It will be available in the coming weeks.
