Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is an increasingly popular model for companies looking to adopt a Transportation Management System (TMS). How do SaaS models stack up against more traditional competitors, namely in-house and enterprise/on-premise systems? What makes shippers, carriers and third-party logistics providers (3PL) elect to get SaaSy?
1. SaaSy TMS is affordable.
You need a TMS that enhances your transportation spend management. Don’t sink too much capital – and months or years of implementation time – on a bloated enterprise suite that’s not ideal for your industry. For a strong ROI, invest your money where it matters by choosing TMS applications that make sense for your business.
2. SaaSy TMS is scalable.
Cloud-based applications provide opportunities for your TMS to grow with your business. Scale up to add new solutions, clients and carriers on demand. Don’t waste time waiting for your in-house system to add new features. Don’t waste resources buying more servers than you need, “just in case.” Choose a SaaSy provider that will support your dynamic business needs so that you can focus on your company’s core competencies.
3. SaaSy TMS is reliable.
Your Transportation Management System is only as useful as it is dependable. Look for a Software-as-a-Service TMS provider that offers security features, such as backup servers, and accessibility features, like avoiding maintenance downtime during your business hours.
4. SaaSy TMS is flexible.
Software-as-a-Service provides a modern approach to supply chain management. Telecommuters and office employees enjoy equal access to data and reports. Integrating with business partners keeps data current so that you can design end-to-end supply chain solutions.
