Logistics and Transportation

Drive business agility and grow revenue with a consistent, enriched user experience

Overview

What you want from digital transformation is to grow revenue and streamline operations. What you need is a level of insight and control over the critical applications that run your business. For 83% of transportation CIOs, the main expectation from digital transformation  is to grow revenue thanks to faster, consistent and predictable operations. And every customer has their own unique set of expectations.

Your Manufacturing customers expect “Just-in-time” 15 minute delivery windows. Your eCommerce retailers expect you to keep their promised three-day delivery to satisfy their end-customers. That means you need speed and reliability for your core business processes such as customer order management, intermodal shipping, Global Trade Management, and real-time last mile management.

Ultimately, it’s about empowering and supporting your employees so they can deliver. So they know they can rely on your critical applications. Because when your employees deliver, it goes straight to your bottom line.
