Pros
We love all the capabilities of AscendTMS. We are highly satisfied with all the features of the program.
The Price & The Features are amazing. For a starter, this is a great option for a new brokerage since you can have up to 2 users for FREE on the Ascend platform.
I was most happy with how smoothly we were able to transition to Ascend TMS from our old outdated software. The support team was very helpful and responsive to our questions.
Cons
We did occasionally have issues where loads were lost, but customer service noted it and fixed those issues as far as i know.
My only critique is that there is no open API yet, but I'm told that's in the works.
Ascend DOES have the feature available, but Truckstop.com charges so much to give you the integration code.

AssendTMS is helping us grow and develop our business.

Reviewed 4 months ago

So far I don't have really any complaints. Its easy to use and train staff on. It's simple enough that everyone can adjust and start using it within just a few minutes of training.

Pros

The ease of use and how stream line it is to just strart and get everything going.

Cons

Wish you could split loads easier. Should be a feature for splitting a load between two carriers.

Good For What You Pay

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall the TMS allowed me to get up and running, but as we continue to grow, we've reached the point of needing to find a TMS that fits our needs. This is a great startup TMS, but realistically anyone who does over $1 - $2 mil in rev will outgrow the TMS fast.

Pros

This software allows you to get up and running fairly quickly, customer service is good when they are open and you can reach someone to talk with. They always seem to be doing updates which is a good thing I suppose.

Cons

Your always told their doing updates which is a good thing, there is never any type of notice when changes are made, what the changes are that are being made, and if you work on the weekend you can't reach anyone. Today particularly systems are down, been down for over an hour, can't reach a single person for support, help, and prevents you from doing your very basic freight functions. As a business...

Vendor response

Hi Shawn - thanks for the review. YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION. In the last 5 years years we've been down for less than 44 minutes TOTAL. So, I don't think it was AscendTMS that was down, it was likely your Internet connection. Regarding size of our customers, our largest customer is a $9 billion distributor with 360 DC's and 3 separate logistics offices in North America. So, we can definitely support both the biggest logistics operations as well as the smallest operations like yours (hopefully you'll make it to $9 billion one day, too . We are glad you're using AscendTMS, Shawn. We'll keep adding more and more features - AND WE'LL CONTINUE TO BE THE HIGHEST RATED TMS SOFTWARE ON THE PLANET!!

I Love The Software!!

Reviewed 4 months ago

Overall my experience has been a great one with this software.

Pros

I love almost everything about this product! It is a very robust and feature filled software that makes it easy to manage your fleet, orders, customers, shippers and pretty much every thing in your day to day!

Cons

One thing that I don't like is that the IFTA reporting isn't as robust as I would like it to be.

Vendor response

David - WHAT AN AMAZING REVIEW. You are THE BEST. Thank you. The AscendTMS Team.

Reviewed 10 months ago

I'm still getting use to the software but it see that it will be able to handle my business for a long period of time.

Pros

User friendly and a lot of Bang! for the buck.

Cons

Wish they would partner with Safer so I could have the benefit of downloading addition carrier insurance certificates.

Vendor response
