Would you like to pin-point the exact location of your driver by using their cell phone's GPS? The AscendTracker feature sends them a special text message and we grab their location and the status of the load for you. The driver can respond with the status of the load quickly and easily without the need for them to type anything or use their keyboard. You can also use this feature to send any other instructions to a driver via text message. Yes, we know, it's pretty amazing,right? NOTE: If you already use a TMS, the AscendTracker feature will still work for you as a stand-alone service. Just login, and track your drivers! Click Here for see the Overview.

With Automated Route Review (ARR) you won't have to worry if your stops are ordered in the most efficient manor. AscendTMS does that for you , every load, every time! ARR checks the original route to make sure that the miles have been optimized. If there is a shorter, more efficient route AAR will let you know - even if you re-order or add stops on the fly. You can then choose between the original route or the more efficient AAR route. This is a great tool to make sure that your loads are routed efficiently, saving you miles, thus saving you money.
