HOUSTON, November 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — PCS Software (PCS), the leading transportation management platform (TMS) provider for shippers, carriers and brokers in North Americaannounces new software updates that allow customers to further streamline freight transactions and improve their service capabilities.
New features unveiled for PCS Shipper TMS
PCS Software has updated its Shipper TMS platform with features that harness the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to automate and improve results in key transportation and logistics processes. Feature updates include:
LTL Ranking – PCS Shipper TMS can now automate the LTL pricing process. This update reduces errors and frees users from manual labor, allowing companies to redeploy resources to more valuable activities such as generating revenue, acquiring capabilities, and finding cost savings.
DAT rate index – Users can now take full advantage of their investment in the DAT rating index. Robust integration with PCS Shipper TMS connects to the DAT Pricing Index and gives users instant access to rates based on equipment type (flatbed, dry van, reefer, etc.), origin and destination, rate type (full truck, LTL, intermodal), period, geographic market, etc.
Quote API – PCS added the ability for users to access and reserve capacity for new trade lanes and products without resorting to spot market scoring AND obtaining a contract rate. The new service is backed by leading freight brokers such as Uber Freight, Convoy, etc. PCS Shipper TMS helps users save time and money by directly accessing a guaranteed rate for the shipments they need to cover.
The above features are set to launch alongside several updates for Shipper TMS that include improved reporting capabilities, support for incoming material movement, and better user interface and experience (UI/UX).
PCS Carrier TMS Expands Capabilities for Shipping Service Providers
Shipping service providers can now access a state-of-the-art TMS to serve their shipping customers.
PCS Carrier TMS now offers unlimited subordinate databases under one company. This allows providers to streamline dispatch services for an unlimited number of customers without having to switch between applications or manually manage their databases with disconnected spreadsheets. By managing their services within a single platform, independent dispatchers can scale their operations as their business grows without costly investments in additional TMS accounts.
Open trial for PCS Prime Express
PCS announces that PCS Prime Express now enters the open trial phase. Prime Express is a new AI-based transportation management platform (TMP) that optimally combines loads, assets, and drivers across networks and supply chains.
Using an innovative and holistic approach, Prime Express is a break with traditional transport management software. Rather than serving individual sectors of the transportation and logistics industry, PCS has developed a single, unified web-based solution that serves both shippers and carriers and brings them together on a single platform.
The software automates load planning for shippers as well as shipment notifications to carriers with a simple platform that integrates with their existing Carrier PCS or Shipper TMS. With built-in artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities, this new method delivers immediate benefits not found in other systems, all through an easily accessible portal.
“The release of Prime Express comes at the right time. With access to powerful load and driver optimization technology in a single, easy-to-use platform, shippers and carriers of all sizes will be able to increase efficiency and strengthen their competitive advantage. . »
