RALEIGH, NC, January 9, 2012—Transite’s award-winning JaguarTMS solution has been chosen as the strategic and functional Buy/Sell contract management system platform by ProTrans International, a leading national third party logistics company.
"We looked at various pieces of software and chose Transite because it offers best-of-breed solutions for our transportation requirements,” said Allen Phelps, CIO of ProTrans International. "We are very excited about using Transite’s Jaguar Contract Manager as a foundation point and strategic part of our internal TMS. By using it to manage our pricing and rating system, we expect to see great results for both ourselves and our customers while giving us a competitive advantage. Working with the folks at Transite has been a very positive experience. They are easy to work with and truly understand the transportation industry.”
ProTrans is a 3PL that specializes in capacity management and better visibility with data support in efficiency gains and inventory management. Utilizing its unique C.O.R.E supply chain management program, ProTrans is focused on providing innovative customized solutions for freight and inventory management for its customers.
"Gartner finds that companies increasingly recognize the value of a modern TMS, but many would prefer to upgrade their existing platforms rather than invest in a completely new one,” said Dwight Klappich, a research Vice President with Gartner. "Plug-and-play tools could offer faster return on investment by being more easily integrated with legacy supply chain platforms and technologies.”
"The strategic and flexible nature of our Jaguar transportation management system is demonstrated by ProTrans’ decision to select our solution,” Transite CEO Geoff Comrie said. "Our Jaguar TMS is architected as a superior 3PL solution because it can integrate across the different needs of a 3PL’s broad customer base, and is both cost-effective and quick to implement for a fast return on investment.”
