Impatex upgraded

[ January 26, 2012   //   ]

Impatex has upgraded its browser-based multi-modal freight management system, NetFreight. The changes, the largest-ever, says the software specialist, include e-Freight capability: all users can now send electronic airwaybills in the form of FWB and FHL messages direct from the system. TThis follows successful trials in the US. NetFreight also now includes a full warehouse management system that stores and updates information such as stock levels, which can be made visible to customers via the internet.

There is a new inbuilt report generator with a high degree of customisation, though customers can still use third-party packages such as Crystal Reports or SQL for reporting, should they prefer.

NetFreight administrators can now give users tailor-made access levels, useful for larger, more complex organisations where separate departments deal with different aspects of shipments. Inbuilt auditing keeps track of every action by staff dealing with a given shipment, improving accountability.

Existing functions have meanwhile been enhanced. Track and trace screens can now be customised to accommodate customers’ individual data requirements and can even carry their own corporate identities. Customers accessing the NetTrak facility can now print stored documents locally.

Emails can now be sent direct from NetFreight, avoiding the need to open a separate email client. The program’s courier functions have also been expanded and enhanced. In addition, NetFreight now generates and sends automatic post flights to customers by email.
