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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Finally, the service element of SaaS supports operators on a continuous basis from initial planning to execution to analysis.
