Transite Technology is bringing new functionality to its Jaguar transportation management system (TMS) platform . The changes aim to help shippers and third-party logistics companies (3PLs) better manage and automate all aspects of the logistics lifecycle – including carrier selection based on cost and/or service level, dispatch, visibility, and freight audit, said the company.
The key feature of this upgrade to Jaguar TMS is allowing the customer to “self-customize” by adding their own or third-party transportation management applications, said Geoff Comrie, CEO of Transite.
“This means that implementation time is reduced and they are able to build and scale their own transportation applications to adapt to their changing business and unique needs of their customers,” Comrie noted.
“With Jaguar TMS, companies can easily integrate the transportation process with their internal systems. This includes ERP [enterprise resource planning], order management, warehousing, and other transportation systems,” he said. “And Jaguar TMS evolves as needs change—initially can be used as standalone system, and then integrated in a deliberate manner component-by-component.”
Because Jaguar TMS can be purchased either through a software as a service (SaaS) subscription or premise installation, shippers can easily afford and immediately cost -ustify a transportation solution without the large capital expenses, lengthy implementations, or major changes to internal processes, Comrie pointed out.
The new TMS functionality joins Transite’s Jaguar Transportation Management Suite which includes Jaguar Transportation Development Platform, Jaguar Contract Manager and Jaguar Suite Application Store.
