Question: What are points?

Answer: Points are used to pay for business transactions in TABS.  For example, when you create Booking Appointment in TABS, you will need a certain number of points to do so.

 

Question: Why do I need points?

Answer: For MICT, if you do not have sufficient Points, you won’t be able to make a booking.

 

Question: How many points do I need?

Answer: The Points charges for Bookings will vary based on the time zone and the day.

For example, a booking created for a HIGH demand time zone will cost more points than a Booking created for a LOW demand time zone.

All Points charges for TABS transactions are set by the facility.  You can find out the charges by going to the Points Window in TABS.

 

Question: Can I see my Points Balance?

Answer: Yes. Just login to TABS and go to Points, then Transactions. You will see your account balance of the top of the screen.

  1. Once logged in to TABS, go to Points -> Points Top Up

Question: Why are the screens changing?

Answer: 1-Stop is committed to making your life and work simpler, which is why we’re always finding ways to create a more effective and efficient way for you to pick up and drop off your cargo.

You’ve told us that the container list and booking screens could be improved.

Specifically, some of the problems you were experiencing were:

  • You had to click back and forward through screens to make bookings
  • There is not enough information in the container list
  • It is not possible to make a booking using a mobile device
  • Within the container list it is possible to find a view the containers but not the bookings.

So we’ve changed it to suit your needs.

 

Question: What’s changing?

Answer: A few things.

The menu: Click on “Containers List” instead of having those two options as separate items.

The Container List screen: We packed this screen with so many features now, so you can do what you need to without having to go in and out of the screen.

The Booking process: An easier and faster way of booking, even if you’re on a mobile device.

Question: Will I still have to book within a certain time?

Answer: Yes.  The same rules apply and you will still see a timer when you go to book.

 

Question: Why can’t I drag and drop the containers on to a slot anymore?

Answer: There are 2 reasons for this:

  1. When you dragged the container on to the slot, it “locked” that slot and made it disappear from the available slots for other users. This would be good for you, if you continued to book, but even if you didn’t, that slot disappeared for others
  2. Drag and drop was only available on the desktop. Our mobile users couldn’t do that on their device

Now, with the click-and-click method, our mobile users can also book, and no slots are locked.

 

Question: When will the change occur?

Answer: at 8pm on 15th May, 2016.
