Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for Logistics are designed to meet the needs of businesses regardless of size, providing a simplified, streamlined, integrated end-to-end approach that is essential for Mobile Resource Management (MRM). This also helps to more efficiently managing costs and IT staffing.

Many operators today function on a manual, decentralized and fragmented model, without the help of optimization or decision support technology. As a result, routing schedules tend to be static with little to no ability to manage dynamic jobs and/or route changes. This leads to added costs, fragmented fleet planning and underutilization of assets in the field.

Four Benefits Gained from Implementing SaaS Software in Logistics Management

  1. SaaS solutions for MRM are on-demand, pay-as-you-go, and Web-based solutions making them easy-to-deploy and flexible enough to meet the needs of organizations regardless of size or complexity.
  2. They are designed to simplify and manage complicated and difficult logistics problems by taking an integrated, end-to-end approach to MRM. This end-to-end functionality enables optimal route planning, reductions in fuel costs and significant improvements in asset utilization.
  3. SaaS solutions allow operators access to advanced route planning capabilities on demand, helping them avoid the high capital cost investment and the in-house IT staffing needed for advanced systems integration. Because they are delivered as a service they can be easily scaled up or down according to business needs without infrastructure changes.
  4. Finally, the service element of SaaS supports operators on a continuous basis from initial planning to execution to analysis.
