THE WOODLANDS, Texas—Bourque Logistics (BL) has introduced a new version of RAILPort. This web-based report tool allows users to customize and distribute reports of their own design and requirements. In addition, the RAILPort report writer offers pre-written templates for each application.  These simple-to-use templates provide the foundation to build customized reports.

RAILPort 4.0 includes a streamlined dashboard that allows for quicker navigation to reports most often used and new report search functions. This version also includes a report designer and enhanced automatic email scheduling capabilities.  For executive quality reports, a new report designer has been added.  Executive reports can be customized from time-saving templates then saved to a PDF, Excel, HTML, or CSV file for distribution.  Upgraded automatic email report scheduling provides users the ability to view schedules corresponding with their current report and allows for quick and easy schedule editing.

RAILPort allows reports to be distributed to customers via email in Excel, PDF, live link, CSV or HTML formats.  Live Link provides customers and/or colleagues with the ability to refer to that same link with up-to-date reporting information each time the link is clicked.  Additionally, the “share” feature is a collaborative tool among colleagues to use each other’s report criteria to build their own customized report.  The alert function allows a user to set email alerts based upon report criteria.  Last but not least, the Map function integrates with Bing Maps to show where railcars are located, geographically speaking.
