KonaWare, a wireless software applications provider for logistics, field service and telematics, and ORTEC, a provider of advanced planning and scheduling software, have come together to offer an end-to-end solution for fleet routing, dispatch and mobile communication.
ORTEC has integrated KonaWare’s Transport Pick-up & Delivery functionality with ORTEC’s route optimization and dispatch solution. According to Michael Van Duijn, managing partner of ORTEC, “By adding KonaWare functionality, we can offer our customers even greater, real-time supply chain visibility, at the edge of their enterprise, resulting in a more efficient dispatch operation, and a vast choice of mobile hardware platforms.”
The addition of KonaWare Transport functionality to ORTEC’s routing and dispatch optimization solution will help customers reduce headcount, reduce paper handling (scanning, data entry) costs, and reduce unmanifested freight issues, according to the companies.
“By combining our unique strengths through a partnership, KonaWare and ORTEC can offer the market a solution that will reduce logistics operations costs and provide a sustainable annual savings to organizations that implement our offering,” says Jim DiSanto, chairman, chief executive officer and co-founder of Atlanta-based KonaWare. “These customers are leveraging both mobile technology and sophisticated route optimization and dispatch software to gain sustainable competitive advantage.”
