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.

2019-05-03

It's a good system that allow user to manage and trace shipments, beyond restrictions in time and national region.

Pros

Cons

When click on shipments marked as new shipment, it will be right away moved to dashboard where you have all the shipments.

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.

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.

Buyco Efficiency

2019-05-02

I can easily print my invoices directly from the site, unfortunately it's just for one region.

Pros

I can have a follow up of a shipment from booking inception to invoice generation and still get the docs a while after the shipment was delivered.

Cons

it doesn't reference vessel/shipment name

Buyco Review

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. Another positive point is the traceability of each process to know the actual situation.

Cons

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

BuyCo Feedback

2019-05-02

Pros

I also liked the platform communication with the shipping companies system via EDI, because If something is changed by the carrier in the booking, the BuyCo automatically update all the information on the platform.

Cons

Few types of equipments are not available in the platform. There are few restrictions for Open Top containers and IMO cargo containers.

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
