To make your TMS package even more complete

With the additional modules of EasyTrans Software you can make your TMS package even more complete.
With this service, a specific functionality can be added to a system without paying for things you don’t need. Modules can be added to your subscription at any time.

If you are interested in an additional module, please contact us. The rates per module can be found at prices.
Below you will find a brief overview of the most important features per module.

Purchase module

With the Purchase module you can keep track of your purchase costs and revenues, this module is particularly useful when you outsource orders to external carriers/charters.

A brief overview of the features:

  • Assign a purchase rate to each sales rate
  • Set purchase rates per carrier
  • Instant insight into the yield of your orders
  • Keep track of actual miles driven in comparison with calculated miles
  • Create purchase invoices that show you the amount your carriers are allowed to declare or what you have to pay to your staff
  • Easily verify the correctness of declarations received from your carriers
  • Create self-billing purchase invoices

Document storage module

With the document storage module you can add documents to your orders. For example, you can add signed transport documents, images, customs documents or an original order for your administration.

At each destination in an order you can attach two documents, and indicate whether these documents should only be visible for internal use or may also be shared. You can share the documents with your customers, for example by sending a proof of delivery with the invoice. And if you use a Customer Portal, your customer is able to view the enclosed documents immediately. Internal documents are obviously not enclosed with the invoice and are not visible in your Customer Portal.

A brief overview of the features:

  • Safely store documents per destination
  • Complete digital storage, this means less paperwork and fast findability
  • For customers who use your Customer Portal, the documents are immediately visible (proof of delivery / POD)
  • Stored documents can be automatically sent with digital invoicing or the sign off confirmation
  • Up to 2MB per document with the standard document storage module or up to 20MB per document with the large document storage module

Tip: There is scanning software available that you can use to directly save transport documents with the correct order. The Delivery note and CMR that you create with EasyTrans contains a QR code with which a scanner can automatically recognize the order number.

This depends on the possibilities of the accounting package. Please feel free to contact us.

Module Multi Currency

Do you regularly do business with foreign companies? Then the Multi Currency module is probably very practical for you!
With this module you are able to create products for which the prices will automatically be calculated and invoiced in the correct currency. That saves a lot of time!

The foreign currency only applies to the sales rates, if you use the purchase module then the purchase rates are always in the system currency.

Module multiple company names (separated invoicing)

If your company uses more than one company name, this module can offer a solution. With this module you are able to use separated invoicing. This means that you can use multiple invoice layouts, per customer you can specify which layout to use.

For separate invoicing and planning we offer the module extra offices.

Module extra offices (separated planning and invoicing)

If your company has multiple offices, or if you have multiple companies yourself, you can use the extra offices module. With this module you get a central planning and a planning for the office(s). You can assign orders to the offices from the central planning, after which the orders will immediately be shown in the order overview of the concerning office. You can also assign customers and carriers to a specific office, which makes this module ideal for franchise organisations.

Invoicing can be performed centrally, or each office can do its own invoicing with its own invoice numbering. The generated turnover per office can be displayed quickly and clearly.

Module connection with external carriers (DPD, GLS, TNT, UPS)

If your company offers the transport of shipments via external carriers, this module is ideal. You can forward your shipments from EasyTrans to the carrier. The prices are calculated automatically and you can create a shipping label immediately. If you use a Customer Portal, your customers are able to register shipments and print shipping labels themselves.

This module also has integrated Track & Trace, so that you and your customer can easily keep track of the status of the shipment.

EasyTrans can be connected to the following logistical service providers:

If you are interested in a connection with an external carrier that is not listed, please contact us.

* GLS offers no options for direct connections, you can export and import your shipments using an Excel or CSV file.

Branch-specific connections (Courier Exchange, Haulage Exchange, Same Day Courier Network, Webfleet Solutions, Transsmart, Trimble, Rietveld)

EasyTrans offers various connections with branch-specific software. For example, on-board computers, freight exchange or fleet management systems.

EasyTrans has connections with the following branch-specific software:

Is your required connection not listed here? Please contact us for the possibilities.

Module connection with external systems (API)

EasyTrans can be connected to third-party systems in many ways. Think for example of a connection with on-board computers for the exchange of order data, or with software of your customer (such as a webshop) where a new order will be automatically booked in EasyTrans.

EasyTrans Software has developed an API for these connections, which provides information exchange in a structured and uniform manner. EasyTrans can also handle APIs and connections from third parties. The possibilities and wishes for connections are always discussed in advance so that we can offer you a perfectly fitting solution.

Module backup copy

EasyTrans Software makes a daily backup of your system. All your entered data is stored in two different locations so that your data is always safely stored.

For even greater assurance, it is possible to receive a copy of this backup by email. This way you always have a physical copy of your own data.

Module individual server

EasyTrans Software offers planning software in the form of a SaaS product (Software as a Service), this offers you a number of important benefits:

  • Software runs on servers of EasyTrans Software. Because of this, no installation and expertise is required from your side.
  • Maintenance and regular updates are executed by EasyTrans Software.
  • Regular backups of all entered data are automatically stored at two locations.
  • Reliable and quick access to the software from all locations where internet is available.
  • Integration into your own website is possible.

Despite these benefits, it can be desirable to run the software in-house (on your own server). Reasons for this may be:

  • You have control over the entered data, this means you are responsible for backups and security yourself.
  • Control the availability of the software yourself.
  • Direct access to the database, for example for integration with other systems.

The implementation of this module is done in consultation with your ICT-department and will be carried out by EasyTrans Software. The costs for this module include: help with initial installation, support during use and regular updates of EasyTrans.

Module Route Optimisation

Do you often drive delivery routes for a particular customer? With the module Route Optimisation, you can put the destinations in the optimal order within this transport order.

With the module Route Optimisation you can optimise up to 100 destinations within one transport order. When optimising the route, the loading and unloading addresses and the times at which you are expected here are taken into account of course. You can also schedule a service time for each destination. The service time stands for the average time you think you need for a stop.

You can find a detailed explanation of how to use the module Route Optimisation in the Manual Module Route Optimisation.
