Are You Ready to Upgrade SMSTurbo?

You may have heard about an upgrade to the SMSTurbo® truck scale software. At this point you may be wondering, “Why should I care about this upgrade?” Maybe you’re thinking that changes to your scale operation are unnecessary, or the cost of the project is too much to take on right now. Many customers have said “I already have your software. Why do I need to get another version?” That’s a great question. And we have answers.

We’ll go over the main reasons why upgrading your truck scale ticketing application is important. Also, we’ll cover how you can benefit from new features and functionality in the latest version of our scale management software.

High Priority Items

Windows 10

Microsoft is pushing out free upgrades to Windows 10 for all users. What a great thing! The only challenge is that if you upgrade a machine running an older version of SMSTurbo, you’re going to have a problem. Your SMSTurbo software won’t work anymore. Only SMSTurbo v10 is compatible with Windows 10. So before you click that free Windows upgrade, we beg you, PLEASE give us a call.

Accounting Integrations

Another consideration is your accounting system. If you’re planning changes to your accounting system, for example you’re trying to move to the latest version of QuickBooks, or you want more tools to better integrate and map data from your scale operation to your accounting system, look no further than SMSTurbo v10. We’re building deeper integrations with various accounting platforms, and we’re ready and able to help you.

On-going Maintenance

Keeping your scale-ticketing solution up-to-date is imperative to keep your operation running effectively and efficiently. Aging software can lead to issues in the future. By migrating to SMSTurbo v10, you can ensure that your software can be upgraded as we push out improvements, bug fixes, and future releases. SMSTurbo products version 8 and older are nearing End-of-Life in our product lifecycle. Over the coming year, we will no longer offer support and maintenance on these versions of the software. If you have questions about this, please contact one of our staff members.

Additional Customer Benefits

Improved UI

We’ve been working in the truck-scale industry for more than 30 years. Our loyal customers have provided valuable insight into what a first-class scale management software solution should look like. We’ve taken that knowledge and followed it with a top-to-bottom rebuild of our SMSTurbo application. There are a number of improvements to our User Interface that make the ticketing experience for weighmasters, scale operators, and accounting more streamlined.

We highly suggest you schedule a demo with one of our team members to learn more.

More Reporting Capabilities

Reporting just got a lot easier, and more flexible. We’ve developed new report management tools that allow users to run and store reports centrally in the database. No more individual reports per site, or per user.

Hopefully, we’ve answered your questions about upgrading to SMSTurbo v10. If not, please feel free to reach out to a team member to schedule a call, or setup a product demonstration to walk you through everything. We look forward to continuing our relationship with you as a customer, and hope to hear from you soon.
