Catering to the demands of a dynamic industry, Tailwind incorporates both renting and owning in its product offering.
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) February 27, 2015
Tailwind Transportation Software, an industry leading software solution provider, has announced the launch of an exciting edition to their popular EXpress SaaS product line, branded as Tailwind EXpress+. This new product adds to the established benefits of renting versus purchasing a Transportation Management Software (TMS) system.
Designed for small to medium sized companies, EXpress+leverages Tailwind’s Enterprise On-premise experience to provide an affordable yet highly functional SaaS TMS. Some of the key benefits of EXpress are integrations with load boards and fuel tax calculation capabilities. Training, free upgrades, and reduced upfront capital costs are also key differentiators. “We recognized the need for a product designed for small freight brokerage firms and carriers that provides both the tools to be successful and is affordable,” says Mitch Helten, President at Tailwind Transportation Software.
Tailwind Express+ has some key integrations such as load boards (DAT, 123LoadBoard.com, etc.), built in mileage calculation for carriers both in the US and Canada. Another advantage of renting Tailwind’s EXpress+ software is paying small monthly installments, which is great for smaller customers who may prefer flexible payments instead of a significant one-time cost. Also, the risk of adopting Tailwind Express+ is very low since Tailwind does not charge the monthly fee until after the first 30 days. Customers will also have the benefit of automatic upgrades to the software ensuring its continued stability in a constantly changing software environment. Furthermore, being able to access the system online, mobile, and on tablets is another advantage of this product.
While Tailwind is excited about the new SaaS product, they are committed to continue building on the Enterprise On-premise business. The On-premise solutions come with various customizable integrations and features to support those with unique business cases and problems. Customers also benefit from ownership of their own licenses which can reduce costs in the long run.
With a fast expanding industry that is changing rapidly, Helten recognizes the need for innovation, and stated that “Catering to the demands of a dynamic industry, Tailwind is one of only a couple TMS software providers that incorporates both renting and owning in its product offering.”
