Holland, Mich., October 20, 2009 — LeanLogistics, a global leader in innovative on-demand transportation technology and supply chain services, announces the launch of a 7-city, industry wide Executive Roundtable series entitled TRUE SaaS: Understanding the Key Advantages of a True Software-as-a-Service Transportation Management Model.
“Our goal is to present the value of the SaaS platform and how it differs significantly from hosted and installed TMS software,” said Dan Dershem, LeanLogistics President and CEO. “True SaaS is a multi-tenant platform that offers network connectivity — a transportation cloud — with value that extends well-beyond TMS features into benchmarking, collaboration and continuous improvement. Cloud attributes are critical when evaluating transportation management systems. Our Executive Roundtables are designed to clarify the advantages of True SaaS.”
The Executive Roundtable will present the unique value proposition of a True SaaS TMS model: access to carriers’ best rates, leverage the industry's largest transportation cloud data, self-serve tools and services for benchmarking, network modeling, eliminating empty miles, and more. LLamasoft, a LeanLogistics partner and the industry leader in supply chain modeling and network design software, will also present their modeling solution, which will eventually be available on LeanLogistics SaaS platform.
In addition to the Executive Roundtable, LeanLogistics has sponsored an ARC whitepaper entitled The True Value and Meaning of Software-as-a-Service TMS. The 12-page report, written by Adrian Gonzalez, offers an in-depth look at the maturation of TMS systems and the growing emphasis on SaaS as the preferred delivery platform. The report is available for download at the Information Center on www.leanlogistics.com
The Executive Roundtable, which includes complimentary lunch, is being held throughout November in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Minneapolis and Toronto. To register for the complimentary event, visit offers.leanlogistics.com/execroundtable today.
