Don't fall victim to one of the biggest technology hoaxes of the
last several years. It is being perpetrated by certain large
software vendors who wish
to see their large prices, implementation and support fees
While these vendors provide a wealth of base applications for the enterprise and tout their integrated system as the superior solution, every module may not be best-of-breed while commanding much higher costs. The bottom line is that it is extremely difficult for any vendor regardless of size and resources to excel in every niche, especially transportation management.
While several years ago integration of different modules into legacy ERP systems was an IT nightmare, in present day this is no longer the case. New software technologies such as Web Services has made integration a snap. Interfaces called "orchestrations" can quickly connect modules together on a real time basis and even produce superior results because of their comprehensive alert and message notification capabilities.
In these days of $90+/barrel oil, transportation management software and best practices have enjoyed new found prominence in the Corporate environment. Senior executives are all discovering that reducing operating costs is mission critical for their survival. Consequently, a marginal one size fits all TMS software approach cannot be tolerated.
Finally, while many of the other TMS packages have taken the "solution looking for a problem" approach resulting in functionality "bloat", we have focused on best practices and practical application of technology.
