UNLOCK THE POWER OF 
THE CONNECTED SUPPLY CHAIN

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is at the heart of every connected supply chain. EDI capabilities have been built into icsLogistics to ensure its advantages are maximised and benefits can be realised by your business. The software incorporates an integrated EDI engine and visual mapping tool which manages all inbound and outbound EDI transactions.

Integrated with the systems of both customers and suppliers, the tools automatically send acknowledgment messages for orders as they come in and send confirmation messages when goods are dispatched. The result is seamless communication with all parties at every stage of the logistics process.

MANAGEMENT

To maximise staff productivity and reduce back-office administration, InfoMotion comprises both automated and semi-automated processes. Users can determine which functions should be automated to streamline workflows and which need to remain as manual tasks. For example, pick-up requests can automatically generate a consignment note and, once completed, be automatically added to a load manifest. All automation is manageable at a granular level, ensuring workflows suit your unique ways of working.

MODERN MS SQL SERVER
PLATFORM DELIVERS RESULTS

Modern platform applications, such as Microsoft.NET, are inherently faster allowing developers to completely re-think solutions to business problems and solve them in new and innovative ways. Third-party logistics organisations, of all sizes across all sectors of the industry, that embraced the .NET revolution have gained clear advantages by delivering new competitive capabilities.

All our systems are developed using Microsoft.NET technologies and underpinned by Microsoft SQL Server Databases, making them true multi-user multi-site solutions that are infinitely scalable, open, flexible and able to be easily integrated with 3rd applications and complimentary technologies.

REPORTING AND ANALYSIS
REPORTING AND ANALYSIS

Business managers require regular reports covering a range of areas, and icsLOGISTICS in-built report writer streamlines their production. Users can quickly build their own reports, based on granular data drawn directly from the system. For example, reports can be generated that show overall profitability or the profitability of particular vehicles or runs.

Regular reports can be scheduled to automatically be sent to managers at a specific day and time, and customised to show preferred views of information. The report writer provides the insights the business needs while removing much of the effort of pulling together the required data.
