Precision Software, a division of QAD Inc., (NASDAQ: QADA) (NASDAQ: QADB) , a leading provider of transportation and trade management solutions, today announced a powerful new data warehousing, reporting and analytics solution integrated with Precision Transportation Management (TMS) and Precision Exception Management (PEM) software. Precision Business Intelligence (BI) complements the single-platform product suite of transportation management software that streamlines day-to-day activities for hundreds of companies – now, with smarter reporting and easy-to-understand data.
“Every enterprise has information bottlenecks – some are just easier to spot than others,” said Ed Boclair, president of Precision Software. “Precision Business Intelligence unifies data from Precision TMS and PEM with multiple sources in your company to make it easier to access critical information for key decision makers to pinpoint challenges and deficiencies. Fact-based decisions can then be made across all logistical units in the company in real time to reduce logistics costs and enhance service levels, which in turn can increase customer satisfaction, loyalty and drive top line revenue growth.”
Precision BI presents information on business operations and costs, including how much is spent on shipping, which carriers deliver on-time and more. It harmonizes and consolidates raw data from disparate source systems (including non-Precision) into an easily accessible data warehouse.
Transforms Silos of Disjointed Data into a ‘Single Version of the Truth’Steve Banker, service director for Supply Chain Management at ARC, a leading industry analyst firm, underscored the value of a one-stop integrated solution to speed time to value, and resolve IT complexity in the transportation industry. “Many organizations today confront the challenge of reconciling data from a myriad of point solutions from different vendors with inconsistent interfaces and upgrade schedules. Perhaps even more important, silos of disjointed data do not provide decision-makers with a ‘single version of the truth.’ Precision Software’s solution offers tight integration across transportation management systems to make it simpler for the business user to access the metrics to provide better services at a lower cost with greater agility.”
