Aljex Software introduced a document management upgrade to its Web-based transportation software that can speed a company's billing cycle and improve cash flow.

With the upgrade, users can save any digitized document directly to a shipment folder where it can be accessed instantly. Documents can be in any digital format - XLS, DOC, PDF, EML, TXT, JPG, among many others. Documents can easily be attached to customer bills and emailed or printed and sent with billing through the regular mail.

The upgrade speeds handling of the signed delivery receipt. When delivery receipts are scanned on the road and sent electronically, the carrier or broker can bill the customer immediately, cutting days or weeks from a billing cycle and lowering days billing outstanding.

It is being applied to both Aljex software options, Classic and Transportation Intermediary Network which includes mapping. The update will be available over the Internet to all customers of each version at the same time and at no extra charge.

The same upgrade can be used to manage other kinds of digital files, including digital photos of damaged freight and accident scenes. Similarly, users can easily save and access spreadsheets and even videos that might be associated with a load or shipment.

Aljex Software is a provider of hosted management software for freight brokers, carriers, 3PLs, and other transportation providers.
