Pros

The support team is responsive and appropriately reactive. With respect to the program, it is organized and user friendly.
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.
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.

Pros

Not enoughreviews yet

Cons

The warnings can cause an inconvienence when they continuously popup everytime something is resaved.
The speed of the platform is incredible slow and at least every other day my colleague or myself have the website crash.
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.

Good Product, but too expensive

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

The Product is an easy-to-use TMS and I've used others similar in the past. It does what it's suppose to do though. Their CS team is decent.

Cons

Too expensive, software doesn't support the price. Many others do the same thing for far less, and with better customer service. Their CS team is decent, although could be more knowledgeable on the product itself.

Excellent TMS

Reviewed 7 years ago

Tailwinds is very user friendly and has customizable features that can be done at the user level or through their support network. Run into an issue? Just call or email their support team, responses are always quick and solutions just as good.

Pros

We are continuously utilizing more and more of the components of the software every day. TW can be as small or as large a part of your TMS system as you want it to be.

It is a good start to perfect.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Tailwind TMS is better than the program we were previously using but it is not exactly how I would like it to be. I look forward to more development of features and programs.

Pros

The software has made some aspects of the organization and implementation of information and data entry easier and more effective. The developers are always making updates to streamline everything but there is more work to be done.

Cons

There are some features that don't make sense and others that need to be fixed to be more effective. I wish that we had more control of features and it was easier to get changes made.

Vendor response

Hi Christie, thanks for sharing your feedback, we appreciate it! We are always developing more features and updates to ensure our customers are getting the best experience. In fact, since the web-based version of the TMS was launched in November 2016, we've made over 300 updates and enhancements to it!

Love this Software

Reviewed 2 years ago

We switched our TMS system and had so many problems. Finally, after 4 months we switched to Tailwind...and we have never looked back. It's been nothing but a positive experience! The bottom line is they overpromised and underperformed!

Pros

User friendly. It is very easy to use. And when I can't figure something out, support is right there to help me! It is also affordable!

Cons

Honestly, there is nothing about Tailwind I don't like.

Hi Jane, we appreciate your review!

Tailwind Review

Reviewed 4 years ago

great TMS , it can handle my loads very easy, is the only software that I know , than can handle an international load, taking a mexican carrier, with their own trailer number, involve a wharehouse , transload the product to a US carrier with a different trailer number , and give you the avaibility to track the load in one single order, not just that, it also provide indivual instructions and BL for each party, and receive the invoice for each carry involve so payments for each of them can be done with the proper administration, and for you customer can get togther all this job and send them just one invoice for the all service... this TMS is great

Pros

Is very flexible and you are able to creat the orders as you want

Cons

Traying to get automatic commsion payments for your personel can be tricky but once you get it done works great

Thanks Daniel - we appreciate the feedback!

Powerful Tool - And Slow

Reviewed 4 years ago

Lehmans terms could assist with training new people on the software.

Pros

It has a lot of bells and whistles which we find are useful, from payroll to Quickbooks integration. Support is responsive Monday - Friday.

Cons

Very slow, we used multiple browsers, Mac and Windows, in addition we have used several wifi points to ensure it was not our internet. We compared this TMS to some other online trials and these systems responded much better. Concern Tailwinds may be a thing of the past for us, we are a fast moving business and the product is becoming a thorn in our side.

Vendor response

Hi Scott. We are sorry to hear you are experiencing slowness with your application. I see that some adjustments were made to your system a few days ago which hopefully should have helped. Regardless, we will be in touch to help rectify the problem.

I have used the software since its inception and experience all the updates

Reviewed 7 years ago

The software is easy to understand and provides all TMS functions from dispatch, AP, AR, to account management reporting. It has some nice features due to its integration with mileage programs, posting sites, and reporting. CMS supports multiple users and most importantly works using multiple currencies for CDN and USD. Some sections need improvement because of extra page clicks, but I am told this will be addressed soon.

Frees up my day

Pros

The ability to view the progress of each load and provide my customers with information immediately. Not to mention the support from the TMS Team, it is very timely.

We have had an amazing experience with the Constellation TMS

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

The customer service reps care about our business and they are an extension of our team, the software is easy to use, it helps our company control costs, and the developers are flexible and can customize the software to meet our needs.

Cons

We have used other TMS programs, and there isn't any need we have that Constellation doesn't currently handle. No software is perfect but this has met our needs in every way.
