Empowering Freight Forwarders
Through World-Class Technology
In recent years, advancements in technology caused major disruptions in many industries, and logistics was no exception; members of many supply chains are becoming tightly connected, and are automating major parts of their processes, which significantly reduces their costs, and results in increasingly intelligent, transparent, and efficient processes.
At the same time, the leading management schools of thought have been emphasizing the importance of utilizing data in making even the smallest of decisions, and the best management information systems providers have been working hard on finding innovative ways to provide businesses with useful information that can help them increase their competitiveness.
For freight forwarders and logistics companies, the race for increasing competitiveness using more advanced technology has been fierce, as companies are realizing that cutting-edge software is becoming more of a necessity, and less of a luxury. And this is where we come in; we have been working very hard over the past few years on building a state-of-the-art, user friendly, affordable solution for freight forwarding companies that empowers them by providing the best and latest technological and management practices in the logistics industry.
The founding and executive team combines a long and successful experience in both the logistics and technology worlds, and has the backing and support of some of the biggest names in the logistics industry in the Middle East.
Shipments Information Management
LogistaaS allows you to store almost any piece of information that you consider relevant to your sea, air, and land shipments. This includes general shipment data, including bill(s) of lading data, cost and revenue data, and extra services data. From there, you can generate all sorts of documents, bills of lading, and invoices. You can also send data to third party applications such as your accounting system or local customs servers, and you can get business, financial, or performance reports.
LogistaaS also supports creating consolidated shipments that share master bill of lading details, and multimodal shipments that consist of several shipments that have been linked together. Furthermore, the Shipments module in LogistaaS is closely integrated with the CRM and Offers modules, so if you are creating a shipment from an offer that has been prepared using LogistaaS, or for a client on the LogistaaS CRM, all data will be automatically imported from there. Lastly, you can create tasks and add reminders for every shipment, to make sure that you do not miss any deadlines or cut-off dates.
This rich set of features comes with an equally powerful interface that has been designed to be intuitive and user friendly, resulting in a fast and smooth experience.
LogistaaS enables you to generate all the documents you need to run your business, including bills of lading, invoices, notices, delivery orders, and any other document you can think of! When you sign up with LogistaaS, our engineers will develop customised documents for your company that perfectly match your requirements in terms of design, and your team will be able to generate completed documents with the click of a button, saving a lot of the time currently spent doing data entry. LogistaaS also automatically keeps a backup copy of any document you generate.
Business, Financial, and Performance Reports
LogistaaS comes with a number of reports that provide you with a deep insight into your business. There are 3 different categories of reports in LogistaaS: the first two are the Business and Financial Reports, which provide rich information on the shipments, volumes, and profitability for any customer, agent, carrier, market, commodity, or any combination of these criteria. The third type of reports is the Performance Reports, which provide you with an analysis on the performance of your sales, operations, and documentation staff, as well as your areas of strength and weaknesses, and other useful data. We strongly believe that making sound decisions can only be done when you have quality data, and we strive to make that available for you.
Customer Relationship Management
LogistaaS comes with a great Customer Relationship Module that, unlike most off-the-shelf CRM solutions, has been designed with the specific needs of freight forwarding companies in mind. The CRM allows you to store pretty much all relevant information about your clients, agents, subcontractors, and the carriers you use. And with the click of a button, you can take a quick look at your company’s history with any of them. The CRM is also an excellent way for your sales team to manage their relations with their clients, as they can enter their daily sales activities and add reminders for future actions.
Inquiries & Offers Management
The Inquiries and Offers modules in LogistaaS allow Sales and Pricing users to create new inquiries, prepare offers and send them to clients, and then - hopefully - convert offers to new shipments. By using these modules, you make sure that every business opportunity gets followed all the way to the end since the inquiry stays in the To-Do List of the sales users until an offer is prepared and sent, and then feedback from the client is obtained. Furthermore, the data entry required later during the documentation phase will be greatly reduced as all the information that gets entered during these stages is passed down the later stages of the shipment cycle. More importantly, these modules give you a wealth of data on the performance of your sales and pricing staff, and your areas of strength of weaknesses.
When a user logs in to LogistaaS, the first thing that opens up is her To-Do List. Some of the tasks on the list are automatically generated by LogistaaS, such as when a user receives a new inquiry, or when an offer is ready to be sent to a client or has been accepted by a client. Users can also add tasks manually to help them stay on top of their game such as setting reminders to follow up with a client, or to have a document ready for an upcoming shipment. The To-Do List is a great tool to assist users in managing their tasks on time, and to assist managers in monitoring the performance of their subordinates.
Your data is very secure with LogistaaS. In fact, it is likely more secure with us than it is with you! Let us start with access to information; in LogistaaS, you can specify what information can be accessed by each one of your company’s users through customizing over 30 different data authorization level settings. This way, you can be confident that no user is accessing data he should not be seeing. Second, we host our servers and databases at the industry's leading hosting companies such as Google, which guarantees that LogistaaS will always be online, and your data will be safely backed up by the world’s most trusted information vault. Third, we use encrypted channels to transfer your data between your computers and our servers. Lastly, we keep a log of every change that happens to your data, along with the name of the user who made that change, so that you can easily investigate any suspected malpractices.
LogistaaS is an online system, which means that it is always up to date, and you can access it from any location and using any device that is connected to the internet. It also means that you do not have to worry about purchasing and maintaining expensive servers to host local software, nor about backing up your data, because LogistaaS is hosted on Google servers, which offer the best performance in the industry. Being online also boosts productivity as you can open multiple tabs, with each one doing a different thing such as creating a shipment on one, while viewing the details of a client on another, and printing an invoice or a loading notice on a third.
Integration with External Systems
You can maximize the value you gain from LogistaaS by integrating it with other systems such as your accounting software or any other systems that use Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). We have developed a smart API that you can be used to manage the transfer of many types of data between LogistaaS and 3rd party applications. Before starting to use LogistaaS, our team will support the integration process as part of the company setup phase.
LogistaaS provides electronic air waybill (eAWB) connectivity to 90+ carriers. Forwarders can send the air waybill information to carriers electronically, and track their shipments in real time. Eliminate costs such as airlines’ manual processing fees, increase your efficiency, reduce your errors, increase the confidentiality of your shipments, and be part of the future!
When you decide to go with LogistaaS, our experienced team will start a carefully designed migration process to move you from your current setup to LogistaaS in the smoothest way possible. This process includes moving existing client data, setting up the company account, developing the forms to be produced from the system, and training your team. Once we’re done with this phase, we start a long term support phase, where our customer service professionals will handle your daily requirements in terms of fixing data, explaining features, and helping you with anything else you might need. We also have resellers in many countries that add additional local support when needed.
LogistaaS offers the best value in the market among all cloud-based transport management systems with similar feature sets.
