Q. I think I might have previously used CSA’s older version, Air-Trak. What’s different about your new product World Trak?
A. First of all, the technology utilized to develop World-Trak is completely different. It is state of the art Cloud-based technology. Because it is Cloud-based, the hardware and software requirements are much less costly. In fact, the technology is so flexible, that we can easily offer you the ability to install it on your own server, or on the “cloud”, whichever makes more sense for you.
World-Trak was a complete re-design from start to finish. We took a long look at our popular Air-Trak product and asked ourselves how we could make it even better. World-Trak truly offers a simple, but effective way to handle all modes of transportation for your clients.
World-Trak takes a big step forward when it comes to handling ground shipments. If you were using Air-Trak you might have found it somewhat difficult to handle LTL and Truckload transactions. World-Trak offers a state-of-the art LTL rating and booking engine, a fully functional Truckload Brokerage system and an extensive International system in addition to the domestic freight forwarding functionality you have relied on for years.
Q. What kind of customer support do you offer?
A. First of all, our support team is a highly capable group who care deeply about our customers. They provide in-depth and personalized customer support, which sets us apart from the typical software company.

We also have, over the years, used input from customers to shape new versions and capabilities of our software.
Q. What is the learning curve to use World-Trak?
A. CSA Software is intended to be very easy to use, because our founder, Chuck Schubert, found other software providers’ solutions to be exceedingly complex and difficult to use. It is a very unique blend of ease of use and technical functionality. .Some customers have told us they are up and running with CSA in a matter of days or even less out of the box once training is completed.
