Visibility isn’t the Problem
Visibility isn’t the problem, it’s having visibility of the problem, that’s the problem
Visibility of your supply chain is good, right? Having visibility isn’t the problem, it’s having visibility of the problem, that’s the problem. Let’s face it, you need answers to questions, questions like, has my supplier shipped or is the transportation provider on time. How about before it’s shipped, is the mode of transport selected adequate to get the shipment to your facility at the right time.
It could be about saving your production line.
When loading your TMS, you need data from your production facility and your sourcing department and then when your vendor ships, you choose the most economical mode for the circumstance. It’s not always about saving money, it could be about saving your production line.
ShippersEdge can be taught to present the question or even alarm you if your vendor is late in shipping. We know the transit times, we can present a solution. If your vendor hasn’t logged on to the vendor portal to ship the shipment or we don’t see it in your account at your transportation provider, we can tell you.
Advanced transportation management systems have this capability but most don’t present the problems and the possible solutions very well. There’s endless data presented but not in an organized or easily interpreted fashion. Mind boggling and mind numbing gridded presentation screens hidden by layers of menus that seek more to present the sophistication of the software than help you identify and solve problems. ShippersEdge took a different view, literally, based on simplicity of operation and presentation.
ShippersEdge is a mid-tier TMS with outstanding power and customizable functionality. We built it with an eye for simplicity of training and use. We use business rules we develop together and apply them to your supply chain management software.
ShippersEdge, we’ll keep you running.
