TICONTRACT solutions offer benefits for all those involved with transport costs in a company, from Purchasing to Sales and Accounting. The Tendering, Rate Management and Billing modules aim to automate and speed up processes. The basic idea behind the e-sourcing platform? To simplify sequences of operations.
"With TICONTRACT I always have the best possible access to the transportation market. I can create even very complex tenders in no time at all and analyse them easily at the end of the process."
Access to a global pool of logistics service providers, a menu-guided tendering process and the chance to standardise submission formats: these are just some of the benefits of electronic freight purchasing with TICONTRACT.
"As well as our freight, we also purchase all our logistics materials such as pallets and packaging via TICONTRACT too. How do we benefit from this? One system, one set of expertise, one contract: it's really very effective!"
You can use TICONTRACT to create tenders not only for freight volume, but also for warehouse space and miscellaneous "indirect spend" logistics materials. The only difference here is that you have to already know your potential suppliers.
"We use the TRANSPOREON automated order assignment function together with TICONTRACT Rate Management. Since the rates always come directly from the tendering platform in an up to date format, we always work with the right prices without even having to think about it. It's so efficient!"
The interface between TICONTRACT Rate Management and the Transporeon automated transport assignment function means that freight prices flow from the logistics tender right through to the electronic transport orders created every day with no input from the user.
"Freight costs play an important role in the final prices stated in our offers. So for me in field sales, it's crucial to have fast and reliable access to our freight rates wherever I happen to be. And without needing to complete a degree in logistics to understand them! Rate Management from TICONTRACT has improved my day-to-day work in this regard no end."
The TICONTRACT Rate Management module makes day-to-day work easier for all members of staff within your organisation who rely on having the right freight rates at their fingertips. The intuitive Rate Management search form makes the process of querying complex rates as straightforward as looking up a train service.
"Since we've been using Billing, everything to do with our freight invoicing has run so fast. Our service providers are really happy and our freight costs are exactly as planned."
Billing checks comprehensive shipment statements from one or more service providers with a click of the mouse. Freight invoices that are too high, time-consuming manual checks and the outsourcing of invoice verification tasks are all now a thing of the past.
