Using the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, a modern TMS can ensure total transparency throughout all transport operations – without any IT infrastructure whatsoever. With a SaaS TMS such as Deltion’s own CarrierNet solution, transport operators may simply access it via the relevant web portal.
Initially, the TMS will guide the transport operator on how to upload all the necessary information to avail of all the activities they wish to undertake. Once the operator has set up the functions and system they require, they can:
Provide visibility to all the stakeholders they like – customers, subcontractors, other interested parties
Engage proactively – the TMS can send out alerts and notifications as instructed
Improve customer service – timely messages and interactions can be issued automatically
Reduce costs – as no IT hardware / software is required
Retain records as necessary – any relevant information can be kept for record-keeping purposes
For all stakeholders this SaaS-based TMS approach provides a means of communication that will result in an improved Order-to-Cash cycle, so there is a direct benefit to any transport operator’s bottom line.
Used effectively, a SaaS TMS can improve services for both large and small operators:
Larger operators can use subcontractors that don’t have any IT infrastructure
Improved PODs can be provided via the TMS mobile app
A SaaS TMS can link with other management systems to provide any form of information in real-time
In short, a SaaS TMS can deliver greater professionalism across the entire transport sector.
