A great option for our company

2021-11-01

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

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.

user opinion

2019-07-02

it is very useful when you work only with shipping orders

Pros

We can see in the dashboard the shipments with new info.

Cons

When we put some documents for other people with partner access only, the default selection is "for full access only" and if we don't pay attention and just press ok the people will never see the docs.

Nice and useful software

2019-05-08

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

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.

The best software to import / export!

2021-10-27

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

Pros

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.

2019-05-02

In my day by day it helps me a lot with the organization of all processes under my responsibility, besides allowing to update several documents which also helps to reduce the amount of emails exchanged with costumers.

Pros

Organization, very dynamic, and the information is very visual and of fast access when you access the platform.

Cons

Platform still do not present the possibility to do road and air shipments.

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.

UTILITY

2019-05-02

I had the possibility to inform the customers for all delay on their shipments, when the shipping company do not inform him via BUYCO

Pros

In this software, the better is the facility to use it ; all is clear, it's easy to find an information, if the shipping company put it

Cons

It's a shame that it's obligatory to return on all the shipments ; it would be better to have possibility to return on the last shipment and not on the complete list
