Dear Brooks,
I signed up for your Webinar probably over a year ago and you started trying to help inform and teach me about going paperless, unfortunately at that time I was in the middle of getting my new business going and did not have the time to focus on that, so I put that on hold until I can really get going on my record keeping and Management Software. Incidentally, I was able to absorb enough of what videos I did watch and I have set up my Billing Via Quick Books and a friend recommended File Center and helped me set that up, but I hate it as I am an iOS guy. So to cut right to the reason I am sending you this note is, I am a Carrier that Transports Freight Coast to Coast, I purchased a brand new Tractor and Trailer and am doing the driving myself, I am able to bring my Scan Snap on the road with me and am now ready to Re do my whole process. It starts with the Rate Confirmation from the Freight Broker, that is the document that is required on every load and has the negotiated rate, then comes the Bill Of Lading, that is issued to me or my driver when the load is picked up and states what is in that load and quantity, etc, that document is my money, when the load is then delivered, the receiver off loads the freight, checks that the count is right and that there is no damage and then signs the BOL. Then in order for me to get paid I scan in the BOL and the rate Con with my invoice that I generate from Quick books and email that to the billing Dept of the company that I hauled for.
I know this sounds simple, but it is not a good system and I need to find a better way, Trucking is so regulated and now that I am ready to hire some drivers and add more trucks to my fleet I realize the Importance of a good TMS Trucking Management Software.
I thought that I would start with the man who wrote the book on paperless organization, I think if you might have any suggestions for not only software that I might be able to take a look at find a person or company such as yourself that, I might be able to hire to get my back office all set up with my ELD (Electronic Log Device), the mandate is December 16 and paper log books will be a thing of the past.
I want to once again, thank you for your continued emails and very informative information, I just can’t wait to get my new process in place and I thought that even though you most likely don’t do much with semi trucks, you might have a couple of ideas of where I could begin and don’t worry if this is way out of what you do, I totally understand.

I sincerely appreciate and respect what you do and have done and the way you process your teaching tools and hope that we can some day talk.

Kind Regards

Thanks Brooks. I just watched your Evernote Webinar and as a new user of about a year I am still trying to get a grip on it. Your webinar was fantastic and I can certainly approach going paperless with more confidence.
Most appreciative Maz
