Support is probably the most important, but often overlooked aspect, when choosing any new software system.
Any software, no matter how smart it is, is only as good as its operators and the effectiveness of any training received.

We make sure you and your team are given full training within all appropriate areas of the product, and wherever practical we will endeavour to change the way the product works to better suit the way your staff like to work.

The main challenges for BoxTop and for any freight management software are wide but we have centred on these as essential…

  • Always design solutions with the end-user in mind
  • Keep it simple, don’t over complicate functions
  • Provide help and assistance, free of charge and make it available on demand
  • Help users feel comfortable with any changes they encounter
  • Listen for feedback, constructive suggestions are always welcome
  • Try not to use inappropriate jargon

We hope to demonstrate how handling information effectively will help users become more productive, competitive, raise levels of service, be more efficient and be able to work smarter and faster.

Before BoxTop it would take one person all day to process a trailer load of 800 Italian fashion items. Now it’s done at the press of a button. That’s the clear path of efficiency we tread with BoxTop. Their real understanding of freight forwarding and IT means we can deliver success right at the feet of our customers.

- Stephen Grief

For us BoxTop means – greater value and it’s good to have it on-board.

We have more to offer customers now, including much better visibility throughout the supply chain.

This is helping us win more business.

- Alan Vincett

BoxTop has been a supplier to MIES International Ltd for the past 15 years. Their Intelligent Freight Management Systems have helped immensely to develop our business into what it is today. A modern, slick and professionally run Freight Management Company. Without BOXTOP and their ALL IN ONE PACKAGE, our day to day handling of freight and documentation would be far more difficult to process. In my book a testament to their abilities.
