    With new growth, I’ve found myself needing more than QuickBooks Online and my limited Excel skills can do. I’ve played around with Ascend and Truckstop a little. Any recommendations? I don’t mind paying for quality software, but I’m not trying to break the bank. Currently at 4 trucks with a 10 truck goal within a year.

    The two that I hear recommended the most are Truckn Pro by Fogline Software and Trucking Office. Ttuckin Pro is downloaded software that is more accounting focused. Trucking Office is an online subscription based service that offers an entire Suite of services. Both offer a free trial so you can figure out which one works for you. If you’re interesting in more of the accounting/booking keeping I’d go with Truckin Pro. If you need dispatching and everything else Trucking Office might be the better choice.

    If you're growing, don't skimp out. Buy what you're going to need down the road. One that integrates everything, fuel, ifta, license, DQ, D&A, ect and can be customized.

    I believe DAT also has one that is affordable and popular with small fleet owners??

    What are you using? You’re bigger than I anticipate ever being, but I’m sure you’ve researched this more than I.

    I use Wave. What are you looking to accomplish that QBO doesn't offer?

    Load updates, load info, BOL generation, automated driver pay calculations, better reports, basically a trucking-centric approach. I’m looking to simplify and develop my process as much as possible before adding more trucks to my plate.

    TruckingOffice has been good for me. But, I only have 2 trucks, I also use a different service for my DQ, D&A and Vehicle records. TruckingOffice can do all the rest of what your looking for, as well as driver logs
