Freight Forwarder Pro, the latest logistics software release by industry leading Jaxara Group provides a cost effective, state of the art business system designed to serve freight forwarders and their customers. Freight Forwarder Pro makes simpler the process of taking orders from customers who require air, ocean, and intermodal shipping services and integrates seamlessly other of JaxaraÂs shipping and logistics products including the recently released Warehouse Pro project packaging management product.
Freight Forwarder Pro is a product culminated by years of experience in building tools that serve the Freight Forwarding industry. This application represents the state of the art and is the next generation of business systems designed to serve freight forwarders and their customers.
In its current implementation (version 1.0.0) the application offers the ability for a freight forwarder to receive an airway bill from its customers through a highly flexible online interface. Once the airway bill is completed, Freight Forwarder Pro sends the freight forwarder an email containing the detail of the order so that the work may be queued and processed.
The currently implemented version includes the following features:
- Full charge rate calculations
- Automatic rate break calculations
- Complete airline flight information
- Complete airport listings
Features to be released in the near future include:
- Complete shipment documentation including IATA snap sets for the airway bill
- Ocean bills
- Intermodal bills
- Orders reporting screens
- Order processing queues
- Order status tracking
- Online and eCommerce enabled invoicing
The Jaxara Group has already saved many U.S. Freight Forwarders thousands of dollars and plans to release Freight Forwarder Pro internationally in early 2005. In fact, every single company involved in the Freight Forwarder Pro Beta program has purchased licenses of the product.
Some of the major benefits to licensed users of the product include:
- TCO - $3,000 licensing for a limited time which includes discounted custom integration and enhancement rates.
- Seamless Integration with other Jaxara products and a web services driven EDI interface for 3rd party products.
- Developed by Freight Forwarders for Freight Forwarders
ÂWe couldnÂt be more pleased with Freight Forwarder Pro. Through it, our customers are able to generate a fully listed airway bill in less than three minutes!,Â said William Foster, president of Ocean Air Freight Forwarding in Baltimore, MD.
Alexander Petty, Principal Partner at The Jaxara Group said, ÂIt is clear through our experience that Open Source platforms on which most of products are developed can stand toe-to-toe in the enterprise with the best and most popular proprietary technologies, while saving huge sums on development and maintenance costs to the users of our products.Â
