Smarter, Faster, Easier Sourcing Launched by Market-Leading TMS Provider
Holland, Mich., Thursday 1/14/2010-- LeanLogistics, a global leader in innovative SaaS transportation technology and supply chain services, announced today that LeanSource™, the company’s robust transportation procurement technology, is being released as a stand-alone application. The LeanSource™ Procurement App is the first do-it-yourself web application for transportation procurement to leverage the collaborative, on-demand benefits of SaaS technology.
Powerful yet easy to use, LeanSource™ offers unsurpassed performance and scalability, allowing shippers to quickly create their own private transportation marketplace for soliciting and contracting rates, capacity and lanes in a replicable fashion.
LeanLogistics Supply Chain Services team of transportation experts has been leveraging the LeanSource™ technology to conduct Procurement bid events for customers for over two years. LeanSource™ is an integral component in the LeanLogistics SaaS Transportation Management offering. Now the same technology that produced 13% average savings (and in some cases as high as 25%) is available as a separate subscription-based web app that shippers can use on their own.
The Do-It-Yourself LeanSource™ Procurement App was easy to set up and very efficient to use, which enabled a quick and positive RFP experience for our carriers through a process we can duplicate in the future as the need arises,” said Heather Glascock, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Leveraged Execution Providers (LXP). “We were also happy with the support from LeanLogistics that helped us achieve a successful event”.
“LeanSource as a DIY offering will drive the future of transportation management,” said Chris Timmer, LeanLogistics Senior Vice President, Business Development and Marketing. “Our SaaS model and the availability of functional components as web apps will play an important role in the transportation lifecycle as shippers demand more flexibility from their solution providers. LeanSource™ Procurement App provides an opportunity to experience the flexibility and collaborative power of sourcing on a SaaS platform.”
Given LeanLogistics ongoing commitment to providing innovative solutions that enable customer success, the development of a do-it-yourself version of the app was the logical evolution for the procurement technology. The new DIY version gives shippers the sourcing and analysis tools to conduct their own procurement event regardless of their transportation spend, carrier community size or TMS platform. Current LeanLogistics customers who have benefited from LeanLogistics Procurement Services are able to easily maintain and replicate their bid events on their own, while shippers who are not current LeanLogistics customers have the opportunity to leverage the powerful technology on their own for integration with their existing supply chain operations and tools. Additionally, access to the LeanLogistics network offers benchmarking capabilities not available with other technologies.
