DAT Launches TMS for New Freight Brokers

DAT just launched a transportation management software (TMS) system that’s designed specifically for entry-level freight brokers. If you’re looking for a TMS that’s affordable and easy to learn, this could be the solution for you.

DAT Keypoint Ops is designed for brokers who want a simple operations system that places the most commonly used dispatch functions on a single screen. Brokers can enter key information about the shipper and the freight, and dispatch a truck. From that same screen, they can send a rate confirmation to the carrier, confirm that the load was picked up and delivered, and print and send an invoice to the shipper.

The amount of time to become efficient using Keypoint Ops is a fraction of normal TMS software setup times. Minimal training is required, and training sessions are available online for self-paced learning.

For years, startup brokerages have expressed interest in a simple, yet powerful, TMS. DAT Keypoint has a strong reputation among freight brokers for its robust operations function, and newer companies want similar organization and automation, but for more basic needs. Best of all, as the brokerage grows, the software can scale up from a single-user system to one with hundreds of users with no data conversion. DAT Keypoint Ops users can later upgrade to the full DAT Keypoint TMS, with its integrated operations and accounting functions, and optional modules for imaging, EDI, mileage, load boards, and more.

DAT Keypoint Ops is a web application sold by monthly subscription, starting at $100 for the first user, and $35 per additional user. It interfaces with all major load boards including DAT Power, as well as DAT RateView for lane rates guidance.
