ProTrans Finds Success Using Contract Manager with 3GTMS
SHELTON, Conn. --(Business Wire)--
3GTMS, Inc., the industry leader in multi-modal transportation software
solutions for shippers and LSPs, is excited to see proliferation of its
unique rating engine. Contract Manager delivers accurate rating and
pricing for parcel, LTL, and truckload by considering contract terms,
weekly fuel and accessorial charges along with the base rate to provide
you with real costs - the "actual invoice" amount. Offered standalone or
as a plug-in to your existing TMS or ERP and costing only a fraction of
a full TMS, Contract Manager is a single source solution to help your
business minimize price and maximize margin.
Several major clients are benefiting from Contract Manager including
ProTrans, a logistics management enterprise. ProTrans, originally
starting as a freight consolidation company attempted to use a bureau
rating engine during the development of its TMS. According to Director
of Application Development, Mike Powell, "In our internal TMS creation,
we were writing custom code utilizing bureau rating engines for base
costs. After six months of 4 resources we were only able to accurately
rate a small fraction of our contracts."
Contract Manager is ideal for those who want to be able to obtain
complete costs, but do not need all of the functionality of a TMS.
Contract Manager provides advanced capabilities to manage hundreds of
thousands of pricing profiles - from the business process of loading,
through the management o annual rate increases and changes. "Contract
Manager is the only system that we have seen that is flexible enough to
handle all of our rating needs for both the buy and sell side," added
With minimal implementation and training effort of less than 1 week,
ProTrans was able to easily integrate Contract Manager into their
existing TMS system. "We have been in business for more than 20 years
and have very complex pricing structures." Said Powell, "Contract
Manager is such a comprehensive and robust rating engine and there is
nothing we have run into that Contract Manager has not been able to
handle for us."
