DAT Solutions introduced transportation management software (TMS) for entry-level freight brokers.
DAT Keypoint Ops is designed for brokers who want a simple operations system that places the most commonly used dispatch functions on a single screen. Brokers can enter information about the shipper and freight, and dispatch a truck. From the same screen, they can send a rate confirmation to the carrier, confirm pickup and delivery, and print and send an invoice to the shipper.
The amount of time to become efficient using Keypoint Ops is a fraction of normal TMS system set up times, and is aided by minimal required training that is available online for self-paced learning.
"DAT Keypoint Ops was designed for a startup broker who needs a simplified TMS that can easily take care of his or her operations on a single screen," said Steve Blair, general manager of DAT Keypoint. "It's simple to learn, easy to use, and, as the brokerage grows, it can seamlessly scale up from a single-user system to one with hundreds of users."
DAT Keypoint Ops is a web application sold by monthly subscription, starting at $100 for the first user, and $35 per additional user. DAT Keypoint Ops interfaces with all major load boards including DAT Power, as well as DAT RateView for lane rates guidance.
When needed, customers can upgrade to the full DAT Keypoint TMS, with integrated operations and accounting functions, and modules for imaging, EDI mileage, load boards, and more.
