Software At Your Service

Keeping your supply chain in the cloud provides down-to-earth benefits.

There is a natural tendency to want to hold your assets close. But for systems and technology that enable your supply chain operations, there are substantial reasons to opt for a cloud-based approach.

Using the “software as a service,” or SaaS model, you gain flexibility, interconnectivity, scalability, seamless upgrading, and can realize significant cost savings. You free your people to get on with your business, in a perfect example of outsourcing your headaches.

Without getting technical, SaaS offers senior management unprecedented visibility into the supply chain, promoting better decision making based on complete, accurate and up-to-date information. Accessible from anywhere with a data link, it helps to get diverse departments, vendors, carriers, and customers all on the same page.

As brought home by the recent experience with Hurricane Sandy, you also avoid the potential for disruptions in service due to catastrophic, unforeseen events. At TOTALogistix, for example, although our corporate headquarters was without electric power for two very long days after Sandy struck, our services never went down, as supply chain management functions were hosted on redundant cloud servers unaffected by the storm.

Would a cloud/SaaS business architecture make sense for your operations? We can help you answer that question. TOTALogistix has been in the forefront of the move to cloud-based services in the supply chain sector, working with companies of all sizes to streamline their logistics. Let us help move you toward tomorrow.
