OVER the past 18 months, RedPrairie has heavily invested in broadening its transportation applications suite of products and has recently announced a major Transportation Management Solution release.
The solution is built upon a Services Oriented Architecture and shares the same data model and navigation framework as the RedPrairie DLx Warehouse and DLx Warehouse Performance Management (WPM) systems, enabling complete interoperability. This allows RedPrairie customers to gain a powerful, easily deployable transportation solution that gives them significant benefits of advanced transportation management while obtaining complete collaboration across all supply chain applications.
RedPrairie has expanded functionality to include a complete system for the management of global movements, as well as fleet control and optimisation. Purchasing options offer the choice of having the solution provided through a traditional licensing model or hosted to lower upfront purchase costs.
Some of the key highlight aspects are:
Web-deployable zero administration client
Fully automated workflow
International trade logistics capabilities
Customer configurable user interface and business rules
Increased analytical capabilities
Industry leading rating engine
Interactive mapping with driver instructions
Real-time in-transit visibility
Through all of this, users gain access to common navigational controls, share visibility to order fulfillment throughout an integrated workflow, and achieve higher user productivity by means of a more powerful, intuitive user interface. This allows customers to attain real-time inbound/outbound shipment optimisation across a range of transportation scenarios from same-day local fleet to complex international shipment movements that require sophisticated delivery planning, trade compliance processing and global carrier coordination and visibility.
RedPrairie is very excited about the new release and as such is offering a customer exclusive webcast to introduce the new functionality. The webcast will serve as a high-level overview of what is included in the new release.
