Carrier Logistics Inc. (CLI), in partnership with OpSource — which specializes in software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery — has introduced FACTS-ondemand, a subscription version of its FACTS freight management system, to minimize upfront costs and make the solution available to smaller carriers.

“There are many entrepreneurial, growing carriers that need to find a way to be competitive with other carriers, but find the upfront cost of purchasing an IT system daunting,” says Ken Weinberg, CLI vice president. “Now, with FACTS-ondemand, such carriers can get a state-of-the-art IT system and pay virtually nothing upfront and a very affordable subscription cost.”

CLI says FACTS-ondemand offers its users the following benefits:

  • Immediacy of use, quicker than traditional IT solutions;
  • Accessed anytime, anywhere with no integration or transaction fees;
  • No need for specialized IT department or infrastructure;
  • Developed and managed by experts 24/7; and
  • 100 percent uptime assured for infrastructure and application.
  • FACTS-ondemand offers the same features as the main FACTS system — P&D routing and dispatching, interactive web tools, freight billing, integrated accounting, claims, dispatch and equipment control, auto-rating of bills, interline payables and management reporting, Weinberg says.
