Do you have staff assigned to manually looking up data from partner portals and third party information web sites, and re-keying the data into your transportation management system or other internal systems?

If so, then you know these manual activities are very time consuming and costly for transportation and 3PL providers.

Join Transplace for this Webcast, to learn how they were able to automate manual processes by tightly integrating their transportation management system (TMS) with the portals of carriers, and 3rd party vendors in a matter of a few weeks.

Attend this Webcast to learn:

  • About the latest Web data integration technology used to integrate transportation management systems with external portals of carriers, and 3rd party information provider Web sites.
  • How automating manual routine tasks like gathering freight bill payment information or securing proofs of delivery (PODs) from a partner site, allows businesses to redeploy staff toward higher-value, strategic work.
  • Why the future is bright when it comes to automating almost any manual task that requires integrating web application data with internal systems.

Speakers: Barry Gasaway, Transplace; Moderator: Bob Trebilcock, SCMR
