Leading provider of trucking and freight broker software makes accounting easier for small to mid-sized freight transportation companies
Vancouver, BC – May 24, 2017 – Managing the books is challenging, yet integral for small to mid-sized trucking companies and freight brokerages. Tailwind Transportation Software is excited to make it easier for transportation companies to look after their financial health by integrating QuickBooks Online, the world’s leading online financial software for small businesses, with its all-in-one transportation management software (TMS).
Tailwind’s trucking and freight broker software helps transportation companies manage customers, dispatch loads, send invoices, and make payments to drivers. It provides a business with everything it needs to operate on a day-to-day basis – keeping track of the dollars and cents associated with each Order and Dispatch, as well as the details of each freight transaction. And now, all this information can be easily synchronized with QuickBooks Online.
“QuickBooks Online is one of the most popular accounting systems for trucking companies and freight brokers, and is a natural fit for our online TMS (Transportation Management Software) offering,” said Murray Pratt, President and CEO of Tailwind. “The integration between Tailwind and QuickBooks provides our users with a complete accounting, admin, and operations solution at a fraction of the price and time required by the large integrated client server systems with their in-app accounting platforms.”
Tailwind is also partnering with Kerry Smithies of MyQuickBookKeeping.com who will set up businesses’ chart of accounts, lead training sessions, and provide services to help Tailwind customers take full advantage of QuickBooks to:
- Manage payroll and pay vendors
- Record and manage expenses while on the go
- Connect their systems directly to their bank accounts
- Generate income statements and balance sheets
- Track asset amortization
“Coming from a trucking family, I am very excited to partner with Tailwind to make life easier for smaller and family-run transportation companies; to help them really take control of their financial health,” said Kerry.
The Tailwind and Quickbooks Online integration is available to all users of Tailwind Pro – you can get started with a free trial here. Learn more about Tailwind’s integration with Quickbooks Online at Kerry Smithies’ Tailwind and QuickBooks Online webinar on May 31st.
