Accounting Integrations: Link Customers Profiles on Export

We've made the process of exporting invoices and bills smoother to help save you time.

Now, If you're exporting an invoice or bill to your accounting software where your customer doesn't have an External ID mapped in Rose Rocket, you can map them to an existing customer in QuickBooks or Xero or create an ID for them from the same screen.

This is available on invoices as well as driver, partner carrier, and commission bills.

Here's how it works:

KeepTruckin ELD Integration

Connect with KeepTruckin ELD to enable real-time track and trace for your shipments. We use KeepTruckin’s GPS data to map driver and truck location on Rose Rocket’s order and manifest details, so you never lose track of your freight.

  • See the real-time location of your shipments right from within the TMS, allowing for better planning and faster response times.
  • GPS data is used to automatically update the location status of a shipment as often as every 30 seconds.

This integration is available for free for all Rose Rocket instances. To use this integration, an existing subscription with KeepTruckin is required.

Connecting your KeepTruckin account with Rose Rocket

Admin Users can set up KeepTruckin through the Integrations page. Select the KeepTruckin tile and click Enable App.

Setting up your Equipment

New Integration - RMIS

Rose Rocket is now integrated with carrier compliance and monitoring platform Registry Monitoring Insurance Services (RMIS).

This integration maps RMIS’ compliance data to each of your carrier profiles in Rose Rocket to ensure quality carrier selection when dispatching orders.

Benefits of this integration:

  • No double entry- sync carrier information directly from RMIS.
  • See which carriers meet the compliance standards of your business upfront.
  • Keep track of all compliance details and documents by having them stored right into your TMS.
  • Always have the most up-to-date information with daily updates of RMIS carrier data into Rose Rocket.

RMIS Subscriptions

Connect Rose Rocket and RMIS for free with an existing subscription. This integration supports RMIS’s Monitoring Only and CRS+ subscription tiers using your RMIS API key. We strongly recommend the RMIS CRS+ subscription tier to make the most out of this integration.

Setting it Up

Admin users can enable the RMIS integration on the Integrations page by selecting the RMIS tile. From here, simply add the following RMIS API credentials: domain, client ID, and password. If you do not know your API credentials please contact your RMIS account manager.

Once enabled, it’s time to start syncing your partner carrier data.

Connecting a Carrier

Admin users can create and update carriers in Rose Rocket simply by adding the DOT ID or MC ID numbers. When a valid ID is added, the carrier compliance information and business address are pulled from RMIS and added to the carrier profile in Rose Rocket.

Carriers can be added manually or in bulk as usual. To upload profiles in bulk, download your list of carriers from RMIS and upload them using the carriers CSV template. For bulk imports of more than 100 carrier profiles, please contact your RMIS representative a day in advance to increase your API threshold.

On the Carriers page, go to the carrier profile and open the Compliance tab. Here, you can see the compliance data pulled directly from RMIS and upload files that can be downloaded later in time.

Coverage Types

Coverage types are stored in the Compliance tab of a carrier profile and broken down by the following insurance types:

  • Auto
  • Cargo
  • Liability
  • Workers Compensation

If a carrier has more than one coverage for the same insurance type, Rose Rocket will pull the coverage with the latest expiration date from RMIS.

How it Works

When searching for partner carriers to work with, you need clear insight into the qualifications that matter to your business. Now, you can easily assess carriers and determine which are acceptable to move your freight as you dispatch orders.

Finding a Partner Carrier

When searching for a carrier in Rose Rocket, you will now see compliance risk indicators in a simple red or green assessment. Carrier profiles without compliance information will be indicated in grey.

With RMIS data mapped to each of your carrier profiles, you can assess partners at-a-glance before assigning them to move your freight.

Manifest Details

Carrier compliance details can also be found on the Manifest a partner carrier is assigned to.

In the Resources card, when View Details is selected inside the Manifest details, you are directed to the RMIS website where the full carrier compliance details can be found.

Extended Carrier Details

Rose Rocket stores extended carrier details directly in each carrier profile, so your team can keep track of important compliance information from a single place.

To view additional information related to your partner carrier’s RMIS profile, go to the Carriers page, select your carrier profile and open the Information tab.

If you are using the monitoring only subscription, you will see:

  • Carrier risk indicator
  • Safety Rating
  • Pay to Factoring Company
  • Authority Rating

If you are using a CRS+ subscription, you will see:

  • Carrier risk indicator
  • Safety Rating
  • Pay to Factoring Company
  • Authority Rating
  • Certifications
  • W9
  • Equipment Info

Insurance Alerts

You will automatically be notified when a partner carrier’s insurance information is about to expire. This ensures coverage is always up-to-date with regulatory filings done with FMCSA or DOT.

If a manifest is assigned to a carrier with an upcoming insurance expiry, you will be notified with a warning message indicating the expiration details.

Automatic Updates

We are giving you back the time spent on manually updating compliance information and documents by automatically syncing changes made to a carrier on RMIS.

At approximately midnight ET each day, Rose Rocket will update all carriers in your organization with the most recent RMIS details, ensuring you are always referencing the most up-to-date information when choosing a partner carrier.

Availability

  • Integrating Rose Rocket with RMIS is available at no extra cost. You must already have a Monitoring Only or CRS+ subscription with RMIS in order to enable the integration. 
  • Available in Sandbox: Tuesday, January 12, 2021
  • Available in Production: Tuesday, January 19, 2021

DAT - Auto-post to Load Board

In addition to releasing a new integration with DAT, you can now enable single-leg orders to be posted automatically from Rose Rocket to the load board.

There are three steps involved in auto-posting to DAT:

  • Enable auto-posting on the Integrations page.
  • Map Rose Rocket accessorials to equipment types in DAT.
  • Have your orders automatically posted to the load board.

Setting it up

Go to the Integrations page and open the DAT details card. Turn the ‘Auto-Post to Load Board’ toggle to ON and Save.

Once the Auto-Post toggle is enabled, an ‘Auto-Post Equipment Mapping’ section will appear. This is where Rose Rocket equipment accessorials are mapped to equipment types in DAT.

Mapping your equipment

To help you get started, we’ve included five default Rose Rocket accessorials (Flatbed, Power Only, Reefer, Stepdeck, and Van) and mapped them to equipment types defined in DAT.

If you want to add accessorials outside of the default options, you can do so by updating them as Required Equipment on the Accessorials page.

How to do it:

In the Settings page, scroll down to Global Accessorials and select the ‘View Accessorials’ button. On the Accessorials page, you’ll see a new Equipment column where you can update accessorials as required equipment. Use the pen icon to toggle the ‘Is required equipment?’ to ON and save.

Here’s how you would update an accessorial:

Once you’ve updated or added all of the accessorials you want to map to the load board, assign them to your designated customer profiles from the Asseccorials tab on the Customers page.

Once they're saved, go back to the DAT card on the Integrations page. Select ‘+Add Equipment Mapping’ and choose your Rose Rocket accessorial from the dropdown menu. Match it with a DAT equipment type and ‘Update Settings’ to save.

Mappings can be added, edited, or removed at any time. Now, when an order is created with one of the mapped accessorials, it will be posted using the corresponding DAT equipment type.

Auto-posting an order

Create an order. In the order details, you will now see an ‘Auto-post to DAT’ checkbox. Fill in your order details and assign one of the mapped accessorials to the order. This is required for orders to be automatically posted to DAT. If you don't want your order auto-posed, uncheck the 'Auto-post to DAT' box before continuing.

When an order makes it to BOOKED status, it with automatically be posted to DAT. A confirmation message will appear in the order activity log for reference. If an order cannot be auto-posted, you will also see a note describing why it could not be posted.

Want to learn more about how DAT load board works with Rose Rocket and how to set up the integration? Read this article.

Availability:

  • This is available in each Rose Rocket instance with an existing DAT load board subscription enabled at no additional cost.
  • Available in Sandbox: Tuesday, December 1, 2020
  • Available in Production: Tuesday, December 8, 2020

New Integration - DAT Load Board

Rose Rocket is now integrated with DAT load board, giving you the ability to post loads and find carriers without leaving the TMS. This integration allows for these major benefits:

  • Reduce the manual entry required to add load information on multiple platforms by posting orders directly from Rose Rocket to DAT.
  • Easily keep track of all orders that have been posted to load boards by having the details stored within the orders and planning pages.
  • Maximize your load capacity by working with a network of carriers to post and book freight in real-time from Rose Rocket, ensuring no load gets left behind.

This integration maps point-to-point order information from Rose Rocket to post loads on DAT. View & manage all orders that have been posted to a load board from within the orders and planning pages.

Getting Started

Setting it up with an existing DAT account

This integration is available for all DAT load board tiers and requires one API license on your account to set up. Before you configure this on Rose Rocket, you'll need to verify your account with DAT by doing the following:

Email [email protected] or call (800) 547-5417 Ext. 6109 or 6035 with:

· Your company name

· Your main company contact name & phone number

· Any unique identifier of your company (MC #, address, etc)

· Specify you are looking to enable the load board integration

Your DAT account manager will be notified and contact you directly to enable the integration. If you are interested in purchasing a DAT subscription, email [email protected] so to learn more.

Setting it up on Rose Rocket

Admin users can set up DAT from the Integrations page on Rose Rocket. In the DAT integration card, fill in the following information:

For additional support setting your DAT integration up, please reach out to your Account Manager.

Posting a load

Post to DAT load board directly from an order in Rose Rocket. Orders must be point-to-point and include the origin & destination address, start & end time of the pickup range, and commodity details.

In the leg details of your order, choose “Create New Manifest” or “Assign Carrier/Driver” and complete the following steps.

  • Equipment Type: Select an equipment type from the dropdown selection mapped from DAT.
  • Load Dimensions: DAT requires a single length, weight, and cube dimension for each post, so Rose Rocket does our best to calculate each field based on all of the commodities on your order. If you choose to edit the dimension fields, these will be mapped to the load board post and will not update if commodities are edited within your order at a later time.
  • Rate: Add a rate. All currency will be reflected in USD. 

  • Special Instructions: Add any notes or comments about the order.


Once your post is published to DAT, it will be recorded in the order activity panel.

The order will remain as Booked and the associated manifest will update to Partner Search status. In Partner Search status, no new stops or legs can be added to the manifest.

Editing a post

Loads published on DAT can be edited within the Order and Manifest details.

Editing the commodity details

Once a load has been published to DAT, the only order details that can be edited are the dimensions and weight for each commodity.

Update the commodity details and save the order. The DAT post will be updated with the new dimensions unless previously overridden in the post parameters.

DAT does not support updating origin address, destination address, or pick up time window after a load has been posted. You will have to cancel the load board posting on Rose Rocket and post it to the load board again. We'll go over how to do this in the next section.

Editing a post from the manifest details

When saved, the details will be updated in DAT and recorded in the Order activity log.

Complete or Cancel a posting

When you have found a carrier for your load or want to remove a post from the load board, you have two options for taking a post off of DAT from the manifest.

  • Cancel Posting: Select the “Cancel Posting” button and use the dropdown menu to select a reason for cancellation and add any notes. When a post is cancelled, it will automatically be deleted from DAT.
  • Complete Posting: When you have found a carrier for your load, remove the posting from DAT by selecting “Complete Posting” in the manifest. When selected, the post will be removed from DAT and the manifest will revert to Planning status. From here, you can assign the carrier and complete the shipment in Rose Rocket as usual.

Enable the connection between Rose Rocket and your DAT account at no extra cost by reaching out to your Account Manager.

Availability

  • This integration is available for all Rose Rocket instances with an existing DAT load board subscription.
  • Available in Sandbox: Tuesday, November 3, 2020
  • Available in Production: Tuesday, November 10, 2020
