Creating your Control Tower and benefits
Connecting your systems to our TMS, you are able to access the gateway via 1 set of interfaces. Extending your carrier landscape does not drive additional efforts on your side. As the carriers are set up in our TMS, you can access them by using the same set of interfaces, you just change a parameter on your side and you will get a different label. Same applies to transport related processes. Via parameters in the interfaces you can address functionality to support your processes.
By moving transport knowledge into an expert system (TMS) and therefore reducing complexity in your WMS environment, you reduce development efforts and costs significantly on your side. Same for lead time to availability of a new carrier / functionality, significant reductions are made.
Other than reducing efforts on transports, you will free up capacity to focus on your WH related processes.
Adding a new site, a new WMS is not a problem. Just use same interfaces and you can access same functionality. This leads to significant savings / cost avoidance and almost instant availability.
In this way we realize for you 1 Control Tower, 1 Visibility, 1 Process across all your shipments.
