Innovative Computing Corp., a provider of enterprise level software and service solutions to the truckload motor carrier industry, announced today, May 8, that Transportation Costing Group, specialists in Profitability Management Tools for the transportation industry, has been named the first Preferred Partner to its newly created program. The announcement was made during ICE 2007, the 24th annual Innovative Conference and Exhibition.
“We have been consistently impressed with how TCG has worked with us to support our strategic directions and our mutual customers,” says Ernie Betancourt, president of Brentwood, Tenn.-based Innovative. “With this recognition, we are pleased to honor TCG for its ongoing efforts and to elevate our relationship to the next level. Our new Preferred Partner designation will be used to honor companies and associations that have supported us in our effort to satisfy the needs of our motor carrier clients.”
The announcement naming TCG as Innovative’s first Preferred Partner follows the recent introduction of I-PAT (Innovative Profitability Analysis Tools), an option developed by the two companies designed to quickly and accurately enable motor carriers using Innovative Enterprise Software (IES) to seamlessly transfer data to TCG’s Truckload Cost Information System, an activity-based costing solution with full reconciliation to a carrier’s general ledger. TCG and Innovative say they worked closely to create I-PAT for carrier clients that are highly receptive to implementing Profitability Management Tools into their management and business improvement processes.
“TCG and Innovative pursued this relationship because both companies are committed to enabling clients to work smarter and more profitably,” says Jack Jones, vice president of truckload product development at TCG. “Being named a Preferred Partner is further recognition of our mutual desire to achieve that objective. We’re especially proud to be named by Innovative as the very first of what should prove to be a distinguished list of companies.”
ICE, Innovative Computing Corp.’s annual user’s group meeting, is held in select locations throughout the United States and attended by hundreds of Innovative software users, executives and key vendor partners from the transportation industry. The event features sessions, seminars and hands-on labs, combined with trucking-centered networking opportunities, and is viewed by attendees as an opportunity to learn the latest information about Innovative’s Enterprise Software and how it can help improve results.
