It's been a good experience the last few years. Without Express, we'd still be spending dozens of hours weekly just typing up invoices within Quickbooks.

Pros

The biggest thing that we love about Express is the auto-rating features. It makes training new billing clerks a snap, because we don't have to show them the intricacies of each different customer. Further, we really enjoy the access to load information. You get back what you put in, so if you add all the information on a BOL, it means you can easily search for that information when you really need it.

Cons

It's not built for Canadian companies, and you have to manually add GST to each invoice which can get tedious.

Response from PCS Software

Hi Emerson,

We are so happy to hear that PCS has been helping you over the last two years. I've passed your feedback to our developers.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.

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. As it is they force the whole package on you and it falls just short in so many areas that is makes the program overly frustrating. The support is great and they are willing to offer you many work-arounds for items that fall short. They are also willing to offer paid customizations for changes that the program should already include. The program is just not quite done in so many areas.

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. Maintenance is clunky. They have plenty of "work-arounds" for items that come so close in concept but just cant seem to cross the finish line for full functionality.

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. The reports are functional, but don't always give you all of the information you need.

Response from PCS Software

Thank you for your feedback, Jerry. We appreciate your business and will pass along your comment about reports. Thanks for using PCS!
