Sign. Scan. Save. Invoice.
The folks at OOIDA have just released Truckerdox, a new mobile trucker app designed specifically for owner operators. This is a must–have app for any trucker who wants to improve his or her business. Star Nation had the opportunity to drive it around the block and kick the tires. This little app is so feature-packed; it’s hard to pick our favorite. Imagine the ability to secure a load within seconds. Then imagine creating a professional invoice before you pull away from your delivery. Now imagine all of your signed broker carrier agreements, confirmations, POD’s, and invoices were saved in your own personal cloud. Welcome to Truckerdox.
After signing up on www.TruckerDox.com, we were able to use this new trucker app. Sign-up was very simple, and the questions that you answer during sign-up are part of your carrier packet, which we found very convenient when setting up a carrier packet. The Truckerdox carrier packet not only includes information commonly asked by brokers, it also allows you to add a copy of your insurance certificate, a W9, SCAC, and your operating authority. You can add those documents to your carrier packet by scanning with your phone, emailing them to yourself, or uploading them from www.truckerdox.com on your desktop computer.
Truckerdox includes an email portal inside the app. Set up was painless. You just need to know your username and password and it accepts all of the major email services such as Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo. Once this is complete, any information sent to you by a broker can be opened within the email portal, where you can sign, save, and send back to the broker with just a few taps. No more hunting for a printer!
The saved dox feature is amazing. Seconds after you scan and save a document, it can be viewed on the website. This is particularly helpful for drivers who have people create their invoices back at the home office. We tested the invoice feature and found it unbelievable. We were able to create an invoice in two minutes and 46 seconds after getting the delivery receipt. That includes attaching the confirmation sheet and scanned POD, and emailing it to the customer. Forget what we said in the beginning, that is definitely our favorite feature! This app is built for both Android and IOS. Visit www.TruckerDox.com to sign up. OOIDA members get a $3 discount.
