Still Deciding if Managed Services is Right For You?


January 23, 2013

If your organization is considering the electronic exchange of data and information, it’s important to consider your needs today as well as in the future. In this easy to read eGuide you can explore the Top 5 Reasons that Managed Services might be the best choice for your company’s EDI, B2B and EAI needs.

In today’s fast-paced marketplace, organizations need the best method to electronically exchange information and manage growing volumes of data.

However, many companies are finding they have outgrown their existing solution or it is outdated and being taxed beyond its intended capabilities.  Ultimately, many are coming to the conclusion that they no longer want to manage the EDI function.

That’s why businesses-and their IT departments-are increasingly looking at outsourching or managed services as a viable alternative for their EDI, business-to-business (B2B) data management and enterprise application integration (EAI) needs.

In fact, according to a survey of 300 senior IT managers conducted by Forrester Research, 25% anticipate a greater focus on the use of managed services for transaction and document transport over the next few years.

As was the case for the second quarter, third quarter earnings results for publicly-traded less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are again strong. Signs of solid earnings results from carriers that have posted earnings to date include tonnage increases, gains in weight per shipment and average daily shipments, higher yield, and revenue per hundredweight.

While the holiday season is known to bring good tidings and cheer to all, it may also come with another thing that is not so pleasant: higher rate freights. That was the thesis of a commentary written by Mark Montague, industry pricing analyst and chief market-watcher for DAT, a Portland, Ore.-based subsidiary of TransCore.

Earlier this week, FedEx said it is expanding its International First service for early deliveries with the addition of 31 new origin countries, which will bring the total number of origin markets for the service to 97.

Monday, December 22 is pegged as UPS's peak delivery day, as the company expects to deliver more than 34 million packages that day, adding that it expects to see six days in December top last year’s peak shipment day delivery record of 31 million packages.

The time has come again for less-than-truckload (LTL) general rate increases (GRI), with various carriers recently announced their respective rate hikes in recent days.
