PL

Pamela L.

This has been a great asset to our business and we would not be where we are today without Tailwinds helpiong us with orders/invoices/AP/AR.

PK

Paul K.

We are a 3rd party broker that needed a software to create load confirmations and Invoices. This software perfectly achieves that task and a good price.

TH

Cons
The warnings can cause an inconvienence when they continuously popup everytime something is resaved.

SR

Sarah R.

The speed of the platform is incredible slow and at least every other day my colleague or myself have the website crash.

DP

David P.

Also, there is no GPS integration for the drivers. With other Apps, drivers can just press the address and it automatically sends them to Google maps or Waze.

My company has made great advances because the software allowed me to have good record keeping and dispatches with information not having all the extra paperwork in files but only the backups. Efficiency of what this has allowed me to do by giving me the time. can do the work of 3 people

Pros

There are many features that make it the ease of taking little time for paperwork when doing dispatch and keeping track of loads. You will have information on Loads, Customers, Vendors at your fingertips There is a superb support staff that is there to help.

Cons

I have a hard time finding something i don't like Are there some that could improve? Yes and they have worked on them and made them 100%

Using Tailwind

Reviewed a year ago

Great experience. Easy to use and support is at your fingertips with high quality videos tutorials. technical support is very responsive should you require assistance.

Pros

Web based interface with proven stability is a key factor to the Tailwind Product. It does everything you need in terms of a transportation management system.

Cons

No ability to tap into the database and create custom reporting on your own without creating an expensive API.

Vendor response

Hi Peter, thank you for the review. Our new Unlimited tier that we launched in September includes API web-hooks which might help.

Operations Manager

Reviewed a month ago
Pros

Fairly easy to use. Relatively straight forward.

Cons

Poor transaction history and being able to see who did what in the system. Have to go to help desk for that. Not necessarily the right fit for a heavy haul operation, more suited towards brokering and more basic legal and OD loads. On that side it is fantastic. Cannot copy anything but orders - would be nice to copy quotes as well. Definite reporting limitations as well. Help lookup on specific topics is limited and not as detailed as it should be. Have to rely on helpdesk to answer some questions and it is frustrating to not be able to speak to a person and have to do it all through chat.

Pros

There is nothing that I really like about this software.

Cons

I have to size ALL my paperwork because of the transmissions fail on most every single one that has to be sent to customer. Also there is no way to see if the invoice sent. It states that it was sent but a lot of the times it does not make it to the customer.

Worthy of managing your transportation needs

Reviewed 14 days ago

Automated BOLs - I have been working manually so long this is a small but necessary function.

Pros

I like the ease of use. I have been able to train people remotely which is necessary at this time. Anyone I train seems to manage navigating it with ease.

Cons

Nothing I can think of - it works fine for the functions I require of it.
