Great at dispatch/Much to be desired for other features

2019-09-08

The dispatch is great, and if they offered only this as a module with driver payroll & fuel card imports with the ability to interface with Quickbooks I would love this program.

Pros

Dispatch is a breeze and is the shining star of this program.

Cons

Accounting is inflexible and many features do not work as intended. The time off function is nearly unusable.

PCS Software Review

2020-08-25

The software is a must to operate a freight brokerage business. It allows us to operate and manage both the daily operations and the accounting operations. It is virtually two systems in one. We are pleased with PCS Software and would recommend them to potential new customers.

Pros

We like the ease of creating dispatch loads and updating the system regarding pickups and deliveries.

Cons

One reason is because throughout the years PCS has updated it's technology moving forward in time.

PCS TMS Review

2021-06-22

Overall, the experience has been great.

Pros

The PCS TMS is user friendly to manage the burdens of fleet management, regulatory compliance, personnel, owner-opertors, and accounting needs.

Cons

I don't know that there is one thing that I least about the software - if I had to ask for an improvement it would be - could I see the entire balance in the checking account when I open the account register instead of just the dollars amount.

It is efficient to view both loads on the schedule and loads currently in progress.

Pros

I like that it is easy to use, somewhat customizable, and customer service is very helpful.

It would be nice if there was a separate contact field to indicate who sent a specific order when dealing with customers that have many agents.

Functional software

2020-11-17

Considering we had a three month install and have been using it for 10.5 months, I have had a positive experience, thus far, using the PCS software

Pros

The feature I like the best is the one that allows the loads and trips to flow through to the accounting side with one click drill down

Cons

The feature the still needs some refining is the reports.

PCS for Carriers (Trucking Business)

2021-05-26

Relaying on my experince, I would have to say that PCS can be a part of Trucking Business with its accurancy, clearness, easy to access all neccessary files or get them in a very short time.

Pros

Driver Payroll layout I liked most, because you can use it for 1099 and other purpose. That's most important thisng in trucking at the end of year calculation taxation.

Cons

There is not feature I disliked so far.

They do an excellent job...all staff is very satisfied.

2020-10-20

Our old software was 2 different programs & they did not talk to each other so fleet maintenance had to be manually input into the other program this one handles all aspects of running a trucking company.

Pros

All features of this software are great Dispatch & Accounting & Fleet maintenance.

Cons

We have been using this software for years & they keep improving it so we have not found anything we don't like about this software.
