REDPRAIRIE has entered into an OEM reseller agreement with GEOCOMtms, a global provider of Fleet Management solutions for local pickup and delivery.
The integrated solution will enable source to delivery visibility and control over all inventory in transit, whether inbound or outbound, including long haul and short haul legs.
By combining RedPrairie’s comprehensive distribution and logistics suite with GEOCOMtms' fleet management applications, customers will be able to integrate logistics processes and information flow end-to-end across their supply networks.
This single view of distribution, transportation and customer delivery provides a level of inventory flow control and customer service not previously available.
The partnership will combine RedPrairie's comprehensive long haul routing, consolidation and carrier management for inbound and outbound transportation optimisation with GEOCOMtms' fleet management applications for same day local and short-haul pickup and delivery operations.
Customers will be able to plan, optimise, execute and track shipments in real-time from the distribution centre to the retail store or business customer, regardless of the multiple transportation modes, pool points or fleet resources involved.
In addition, the integration with RedPrairie's distribution, workforce performance management and dock door scheduling capabilities provides seamless workflow throughout the fulfillment and delivery process.
The real-time nature of this industry leading integrated solution enables companies for the fist time to use predictive fulfillment and arrival information to consistently hit customer delivery windows, with proof of delivery supported by electronic signature capture.
This improves customer service, reduces delivery costs and penalties, and makes better use of fleet and driver resources.
