TransitQuote Pro now has the ability to create Surcharge Zones.
TransitQuote Pro 4.4 will be our last major release of the year. This version includes some highly anticipated new features as well as upgrades to core plugin components.
This post is an overview of the most important changes and new features in our courier and transportation quote calculator for WordPress websites.
The latest version of the TransitQuote Pro transportation price calculator WordPress plugin is now available to download.
This version is primarily maintennance update and includes a number of bug fixes, technical improvements and two new features.
An effective website is a powerful tool for your transportation business.
Modern websites have enhanced or entirely taken over many business functions such as:
- Marketing your services
- Booking customer work requests
- Sending customer information to team members
- Providing answers to customer queries
- Providing updates on the status of work in progress
- Accepting online care payment
All these tasks generate valuable information that your business can report on such as:
- Financial information
- Price quotes presented to customers
- Sales revenue
- Sales taxes
- Time Management Information
- Dates and times of bookings
- Time taken for staff to complete services
- Response time requested by customers
- Customer Information
- Contact Information
- Customer Enquiries
- Website analytics
With the TransitQuote API we give your transportation business website the ability to connect to any external application or system.
All the data above can be monitored, collated, reported on and used to improve your business.
TransitTools is a new software bundle which gives customers access to all of our WordPress plugins and add-ons.
The latest version of TransitQuote Pro can now adjust your delivery or transportation price quote depending on the booking date and time.
This new feature allows your company to vary your prices if bookings fall on:
- Holiday dates (these can be defined in the WordPress dashboard)
- Out of Hours (bookings made for times outside of your booking start time and booking end time)
TransitQuote Pro v 4.3.0 has now been released and the update includes a number of the great suggestions we have received from our customers over the past few months.
One of the core processes of any transportation business is allocating jobs to drivers.
Whether you run a courier, private vehicle hire service, do home removals or deliver food your business will be more effective with a fast and simple way to give accurate details of each new job to your staff.
With the release of the TransitTeam add-on for TransitQuote Pro we aim to make this process more efficient for companies that use a WordPress website to accept online orders for delivery or transportation services.
A question we are often asked is: Can TransitQuote automatically charge different rates for different vehicle types?
With the TransitQuote Pro WordPress Plugin, presenting your customer with a choice of distance-based prices is one of many features that come as standard.
Managing a transportation business can be stressful.
As your client base grows so do your responsibilities.
More jobs to complete means taking on more staff.
More staff means more to organize, more communication, less time for you and often more stress.
As you hire contractors, part time staff and full time staff it’s essential to make sure the right person has the right information at the right time.
This is true of any business, but it is especially the case when each job has a tight deadline.
