KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwire - Jul 17, 2012) - MavenWire, an Oracle Gold Partner with Specialization in Oracle Transportation Management, today announced the launch of LogisticsWired, a cloud-based solution that allows for rapid deployment of Oracle Transportation Management. Unique in the marketplace, LogisticsWired combines Oracle Transportation Management's best-of-breed functionality and technology with the accessibility of software-as-a-service (SaaS), giving customers the deep functionality and ease of use of Oracle Transportation Management in a low-risk solution.
LogisticsWired customers can have Oracle Transportation Management up and running in as little as 12 weeks. This solution allows for allocation of operational, rather than capital, expenditures. Accelerated ROI is made possible because there is no need for an increase in IT staff or infrastructure investments. Today, SaaS Transportation Management Systems (TMS) are immature and unproven, while the larger TMS vendors are either too complex or out of reach of many of today's shippers. LogisticsWired will bring the industry's best-in-class TMS solution that historically was not accessible to everyone to the wider market.
The Gartner Report, "Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems," noted a growing demand for TMS delivered as SaaS, "with user attitudes shifting from SaaS as an option to SaaS as a preference." This preference is not only due to a lower upfront investment, but also "the importance of prebuilt carrier networks inherent in SaaS."
"As supply chain professionals increasingly focus on cost containment, transportation planning and increased efficiency, LogisticsWired offers a solution that brings cutting-edge Oracle Transportation Management technology to the cloud," said Samuel Levin, Co-founder and Managing Director of MavenWire. "With the focus shifting to SaaS options for TMS, MavenWire's LogisticsWired is positioned to meet that demand, bringing the breadth of functionality and best-in-class performance of Oracle Transportation Management to customers seeking improved fiscal responsibility and increased efficiency."
LogisticsWired provides operational planning, execution and freight settlement, in addition to operational reporting and proactive monitoring of the transportation network. These features improve operational efficiency, reduce transportation costs, and empower customers to have better control. In addition to the rapid-deployment 12-week fixed-scope implementation, LogisticsWired is also available as a custom implementation model. Leveraging a secure, shared environment, LogisticsWired features value-added services to optimize Oracle Transportation Management to fit customers' unique needs. A multi-tenant SaaS version of Oracle Transportation Management, LogisticsWired is the first of its kind in the marketplace.
