Mid-Range TMS Software has the Best ROI

Why does mid-range TMS software present the best value? Mid-range TMS software offers 90% of the functionality of large legacy transportation management systems at a fraction of the price. Compared to for instance Mercury Gate, ShippersEdge a mid-range and highly capable TMS is priced at about 20% of the monthly price and setup fees a startlingly low, even for integrated applications.

Functionality is oftentimes enhanced because the user interfaces in next generation TMS software are meant to be extremely user friendly to avoid expensive and time consuming training. Intuitive enough that almost everyone can be running the system in less than an hour. What good is functionality if you can’t use it?

Advanced Features

Advanced features, like embedded tracking links for your customers and hourly monitoring of most shipments are available due to the architecture of ShippersEdge.

ShippersEdge offers multiple ways to obtain carrier rates. API technology is mainly for LTL carriers and retrieves your rates directly from the carrier’s server. This way you know you have the latest rates offered. In some situations, you may want to upload a table of rates from a spreadsheet. ShippersEdge offer this capability as well. Spot quote? No problem, request spot quotes from your favorite providers, ShippersEdge generates the requesting email and automatically places all spot rates back into the quote allowing for easy comparison and provider selection.

Reporting

Reporting used to be cumbersome. Our easy to use report generator allows you to design your own reports with the click of a mouse and export the results to Excel or any number of other formats. Need a freight accrual report for accounting, click, and it’s done. Need a variance report, ditto, it’s done. Late delivery report, easy.

Expected Results

Most TMS installations generate about a 7% reduction in freight costs due to increase use of preferred carriers, visibility on the lowest cost providers and better data for procurement. Couple that with soft cost saving due to efficiencies gained in operations, you’ve achieved a meaningful ROI without breaking the bank.
