Hey there! It’s James Carroll, a young entrepreneur from the meadows of Texas. I have been running my dairy products business for a good two years. Despite shedding blood, sweat, and tears, substantial pelf used to drain down to some hidden nooks and crannies. I investigated every aspect, from the middleman swindling to the farm accountants. Nevertheless, the thief was still invisible.
As the dairy end products are shipped through courier services, the courier bill had always been a headache for me. Occasionally, my accountant would pick out some courier discrepancies, which were always late than the claim time limits.
Cutting a long story short, one day, my old pal Simeon told me the secret of success. He introduced me to a freight auditing software named “Freight Squirrel Audit Software”. Initially, I was a bit reluctant to purchase this auditing software owing to the fears of extra costs, data leakage, or unpredictability of cyberspace.
Well, succumbing to the pressure of peers, I became a beneficiary of Freight Squirrel Audit Software. Then, the freight audit started to be held on my laptop.
To my pleasant surprise, 50% of the courier invoices were marked wrong at the end of the month. I believed that it is a fallacy of the new arrival. The courier companies cannot do such fraud. The case of Freight Squirrel was corroborated when my refund claims were duly accepted with a brief apology by the courier company. Moreover, my courier bills started squeezing at full throttle. The business became serene.
I want to share some of the game-changing aspects that Freight Squirrel brought into my business life.
Refund claims, claims, and claims!
There is a long list of refund claims that Freight Auditing software provides me right after I scan the CSV invoice. The excellent list ranges from the hefty courier frauds to the discrepancies of a few dollars. An iota of anomaly cannot evade from the eagle’s watch of Freight Squirrel, at least I am convinced after enjoying the fringe benefit of getting the lost amount.
The door is shown to the grumpy accountant.
My ex-accountant could be best defined as a biased grumpy employee who believes in ‘looking busy and doing nothing’. I also had to pay a large salary while the employees’ social security and welfare schemes also need to be fulfilled. Nevertheless, right after plugging into the automated auditing system, the accountant’s seat became redundant and finally duly abolished. Larger companies can also prune up the human resource aptly following my suit. I hope that this trick will work for everyone.
Sprung up fortunes
I remember that my accountant would also pick faults occasionally, having a placebo effect. Placebo in the sense that most of the discrepancies were hit hard by bureaucratic delays. The timeline for refund would often miss out. Nevertheless, now every claim is successfully defended and executed thanks to the clean data rolled out by the Freight Squirrel. Veterans know how difficult it is to get money back from the jaws of courier sharks. This is the grit of Freight Squirrel that is defending the claimed money aptly.
Now My Business is Digital
Another exciting benefit that I received as a gift from the heavens is the improved posture of the business. I can proudly call my business laden with digital competency. The dairy business runs on reputation, and a little blot often snowballs into a reason tarnishing the whole edifice. The customers’ confidence is boosted, and I am getting more and more orders from international supply chains.
As a business person, I am always allergic to numbers. A little task of quick math takes a heavy toll on me. This fear was also the reason behind my reluctance to incorporate Freight Squirrel into my auditing system. I thought that the generated reports would be so complex that I would be an unsuspecting fool without numerical competency. This reality came out as 180° opposite; the reports of Freight Squirrel are straightforward, compiled in plain language, and laden with infographics. This clean data brings ultimate peace of mind.
I have gladly opened up about my very own experience with the Freight Squirrel. The tenure with the Freight Squirrel has spun my fortunes. I might be earning the same but saving away more. Furthermore, the overall reputation of the business is also enhanced once dubbed as ‘digitally competent. Lastly, the redundant human resource prone to human errors is also slashed, and I am doing the freight audit myself. The only task I perform is to drag down the CSV invoices to the software, and the magic begins on its own. I would recommend my fellow entrepreneurs to join the ‘Freight Squirrel Club‘. The journey then would be lifelong.
