by | Apr 25, 2018 | News

Fargo Systems is delighted to announce the launch of TOPS Anywhere, the latest addition to its highly successful TOPS suite of logistics management tools. TOPS Anywhere is an easy-to-use App that makes it possible for transport planners and operators to access critical information for each delivery, anywhere, anytime and from any Android mobile or Apple smartphone.

Developed in response to valuable customer feedback, TOPS Anywhere enables easy access to information in the TOPS Traffic Sheet, saving planners the hassle of having to go back to the office or boot up their laptop when a query arises.  With TOPS Anywhere planners can view the Traffic Sheet, individual job details, retrieve proofs of delivery and share via email. Users can also initiate phone calls to drivers or customers through the App, meaning there is no need to write down or remember telephone numbers! With TOPS Anywhere planners will be able to view a truck’s current location on a map and see estimated arrival times. It also features SMS capability which makes it possible to send key information such as ePOD URL weblinks and pin codes, via SMS to drivers and suppliers directly from the App. 

Commenting on the launch of TOPS Anywhere, Steve Collins, Director at Fargo Systems states: “Issues can often arise at times of the day when transport planners are not at their desk or in front of their laptop.  The aim of this simple to use, responsive App is to make dealing with operational issues more manageable by enabling easy access to crucial information.  With the development of this App we have made it possible for our customers to view and search for jobs easily, from any Apple smartphone or Android mobile device.  Our product development ethos has always been to evolve and create products in response to customer feedback and that’s exactly what we’ve done with the creation of TOPS Anywhere.  We strive to ensure all of our products continually deliver what our customers need and more, offering functions that are time saving and easy to use.”
