Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
In its ongoing tradition of innovation, Tailwind Management Systems Inc., a BC based software development company, is releasing an online version of its flexible and user friendly Enterprise CMS software platform. The new product has been dubbed “ProFIT” (Professional Freight Intelligence Technology) and is focused on meeting the demands of the challenging freight brokerage and third party logistics (3PL) transportation industry. Sold as a hosted online Software As A Service (SAAS) format, ProFIT is an online version of TAILWIND’s popular client-server based transportation management software system. ProFIT offers users an alternative to access a great and easy to learn transportation software that is both affordable and quick to implement.
A custom FIT that is quick and easy.
TAILWIND ProFIT has been designed to cater to the particular needs of freight brokers and other 3PL logistics professionals. Building on its already full-featured Enterprise product, ProFIT combines the ease of cloud based computing with the flexibility of accessing your data on your PC, laptop or tablet device. By eliminating the need for software installation, users can be up and running in as little as twenty-four hours. In these challenging economic times, no transportation business can flourish without a quality software system to effectively manage their freight while reducing the cost of back-office administration and work flows. The most common issue freight broker’s face is in finding the right fit, with the right feature set and at the right price. In a market where everyone says they are the best but only offer generic solutions, TAILWIND ProFIT’s flexibility allows it to be tailored to each company’s operational needs. ProFIT is completely scalable from one to hundreds of users. It is also flexible in terms of the modules you choose, leaving behind the “One Size Fits All” mentality of many competing web solutions.
Helping smaller companies compete with larger ones.
TAILWIND ProFIT online software is focused on small to medium sized freight brokerage or logistics companies. Most ProFIT customers will be familiar and operating comfortably within the week. Bhavik Chauhan, TAILWIND’s General Manager stated, “The less time our clients spend on training the more time they can invest on their business.” TAILWIND’s ProFIT design lets users access the system by Windows, Android or iOS based devices with an internet connection from anywhere in the world.
Developed by freight brokers for freight brokers.
TAILWIND ProFIT is unique when compared to other players on the field. It boasts not one, but two web portal tools that work with the freight broker’s website. One portal is designed for a freight broker’s customers and the other for its third party carriers. The Customer Web Portal allows shippers to track freight in real-time, download documents and view their account history and statements. The Carrier Web Portal allows carriers to view available freight, review bills and associated payments from the broker’s website. Added to the Carrier Portal is a new Carrier On-Boarding module which allows the freight logistics broker to view and approve their new carriers in seconds. Other freight broker features include automatic load postings to all load / truck matching sites, automated trucking carrier selection with integration to the DOT, SAFER Web system and optional integration to other industry carrier monitoring services.
Flexibility is at the core of the design.
ProFIT offers customizable forms and reports, tailoring them to each customer’s unique requirements. Users can go entirely paperless with ProFIT’s electronic document storage system. Documents and various file types, such as images, are stored online and linked to any type of record within the system for easy access. Assigning notes, tasks and reminders for any user and record is a breeze. Additional flexibility includes: multi-currency, user defined fields, re-namable fields, (for languages or terminology) multilayer commissions, automatic payable and receivable charge items. Advanced dispatch with multi-carrier, multi-shipment capability for all modes of transportation. Another unique feature to TAILWIND ProFIT is the ability to synchronize all of your accounting data to the most popular accounting systems in the transportation industry; virtually eliminating double entry of data and allowing customers to implement the system at any time through their fiscal year.
