Choosing the Right TMS

Choosing the Right Transportation Management System

Transportation Management Systems (TMS) are incredible for trucking companies, for a number of reasons. Choosing the right one will enhance efficiency, increase profits on the bottom line, and can lead to rapid business growth. When you can measure it, you can manage it. The most successful transportation companies in this fast paced industry are ones who get the accurate, actionable data they need to make calculated decisions. When proper research has been done to find the right TMS to fit your company’s needs, the benefits can be seen virtually immediately.

We believe that all departments of your business should be integrated in real-time. Information entered in one place should flow immediately through the entire business. You can’t afford to have your critical information separated between multiple applications that update “every so often.” If your dispatch, billing, payroll, accounting, and other systems operate independently, it creates a variety of issues from mistakes and inconsistencies, to inaccurate reporting, to information overload, to wasted time.

Real time integration gets everybody in the business on the same page, and puts you back in control.

Every trucking company is unique, but no matter your industry – freight carrier, oilfield trucking and service, freight broker, dump truck hauler, intermodal hauler, or something else – a TMS is almost certainly the highest return investment you could make today.

Choosing the right TMS for your company is very important, so contact us now to receive a FREE INFORMATION BOOK – find out today how Axon Software will save you more time than any other application, or combination of applications on the market.

Economic markets constantly shift and become increasingly more competitive, so your business must find ways to edge out the competition – while remaining profitable. The right TMS will give your business the tools to run efficiently, increase your margins, and stay at the front of the pack.
