Case study illustrates how Transportation and Logistical Services, Inc. achieves organizational success with Prophesy’s Brokerage Software
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – July 17, 2013 – Accellos, a leading provider of supply chain execution software solutions, has issued a case study of ProphesySeries Dispatch Broker for customer Transportation and Logistical Services, Inc. Prior to purchasing Prophesy Dispatch, Transportation and Logistical Services, Inc. used a program that did not fully meet the needs of their business. Company founder and president, Jason King, began looking for a solution that could sufficiently handle the business’ requirements.
Transportation and Logistical Services, Inc. was founded in April of 2003 by company president, Jason King in Atlanta, Georgia. Soon after the company’s founding, King chose to move the company to Birmingham, Alabama, where the business continues to operate in full force.
Transportation and Logistical Services was determined to find the perfect dispatch solution and researched a list of solutions that included appealing features. King also asked for input from other carriers that were using software solutions at the time. The choice was clear; based on price, services, and the recommendations of fellow carriers, King chose Prophesy Dispatch Software to run the business.
Prophesy DispatchSeries software for Brokers is a Windows®- based dispatch and accounting system available to freight brokerage companies, creating efficiency and profitability. The software streamlines and integrates dispatch and accounting departments and is capable of handling all freight brokering needs, such as finding the best carrier for a load, tracking deliveries and pickups, managing commissions, and much more. Data flows throughout the system in real-time allowing companies to never enter data twice.
Since purchasing the original solution, Transportation and Logistical Services, Inc. has shifted from being a carrier focused operation to a true brokerage and Prophesy has served them well all the while. King chose Prophesy based on the robust carrier functionality throughout the system. Since they were running both a carrier and brokerage operation, they made the decision to purchase both the carrier and brokerage versions. The solution has been completely flexible and has allowed the company to grow and change over time.
“Prophesy Dispatch for Brokers has been a great investment that has served us well from the beginning, it’s strong and intuitive; we couldn’t have asked for more,” says King, President of Transportation and Logistical Services, Inc.,“Prophesy’s integration to SaferWatch™ is incredible. As soon as a carrier calls we know all of their information. We are consistently able to make secure and educated decisions because of this solution. To add, the scanning and rendition billing solution has really cut down on time and paper use; it’s a huge cost saver!”
“We’re happy with Prophesy’s solutions, services, and support. We look forward to growing with them in the future and can’t wait to see what’s in store for the partnership.”
”A defining characteristic of the ‘Prophesy Software Experience’ has traditionally been room for growth,” said Prophesy Senior Vice President and General Manager, Bill Ashburn. “Our solutions are designed with a unique ‘building block approach’, which enables growing transportation companies to add just what they need when they need it. The team at Transportation and Logistics is a shining example of this capability in action. We are happy to have served them well in their expansion and look forward to serving them as they continue to grow.”
