MercuryGate Offers a Better Way To TMS
The transportation management system (TMS) marketplace typically forces you to choose between feature-rich systems that are hard to deploy and use and TMS lite solutions that lack the power to manage complexity. MercuryGate lets you transcend that tradeoff through our unique combination of power and usability to drive ROI that competitors can’t reach.
Best practice Deployment and scalability are built in
MercuryGate enables users to rapidly deploy and configure their system to meet their business models today as well as tomorrow. The MercuryGate transportation management platform automates the full transportation life cycle across all modes, including natively built-in robust parcel capabilities.
For years we have worked closely with top tier third-party logistics providers (3PLs), shippers, brokers, carriers, and freight forwarders to develop a myriad of configuration options that can readily be applied to support business needs. And users have the capability to set up unique workflows and processes at a granular level – customer, carrier, vendor or business unit.
Additional Features Showcase the Customization of the MercuryGate platform
While other TMS solutions require countless hours to customize workflows and dashboards, MercuryGate uses WYSIWYG-comparable functions to reduce delays in customization. The system requires one click to activate and deactivate fields and optimize efficiency.
Rating each shipment across all modes gives your users the opportunity to review all rates, carriers, and logistics service providers (LSPs) to secure the best possible rate for each shipment.
Access Time-Saving Tools
Delegate subsets of workflow processes to trusted agents, while still maintaining full visibility. Agent delegation also plays a role in connecting the MercuryGate platform to third-party service providers, such as freight forwarders and brokers that may not always be in control of their freight and rely on carriers for information. It’s the ultimate way to bypass traditional carrier limitations and ensure maximum control over operations.
MercuryGate also provides customer management to control credit risk and manage customer call logs. CRM Lite is a free benefit to all MercuryGate clients and gives more freedom to better manage interactions between clients and customers, a critical aspect for freight brokers, freight forwarders, LSPs, and other supply chain partners.
No other system can provide controlled visibility at all levels and a single view of customer data across a whole organization. Paired with indices, the master record gives your organization an opportunity to isolate costs per customer and better manage freight to meet customers’ changing demands.
Scaling available resources is necessary to grow, but it comes with added compliance concerns. Instead of hoping new carriers maintain compliance and adhere to contracts, guarantee it with MercuryGate’s time-saving platform. When things go wrong, use system data to increase negotiating power and force the arms of your carriers back into compliance.
