Aljex Software has introduced TIN, a new version of its hosted software for freight brokers, 3PLs and carriers. The company says TIN (Transportation Intermediaries Network) offers breakthrough utility and unique Web resourcefulness, including mapping, EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) and vast potential for collaboration with carriers, customers and partners.
Aljex is a software provider for freight brokers, carriers, 3PLs, air freight forwarders and intermodal carriers. Aljex says its Web-based software requires no software investment, maintenance or backup, and can be used from virtually anywhere.
TIN includes Google mapping, the profit-driving capability of Aljex SmartSearch, integrated access to major load boards and business-friendly EDI (Electronic Data Interchange). Aljex says TIN integrates information from carriers and shippers electronically, which eliminates data entry, automates time-consuming functions and enables Web-based load status for customer service; TIN also integrates with RMIS (Risk Management Internet Services) for automatic carrier insurance tracking.
Beyond its connectivity, TIN menus are so intuitive and choices so obvious that training, while available, is not necessary for users with business experience, according to the company. Interested users can try out TIN on their own at www.aljex.com; click on Demo.
“TIN is a big step forward in transportation software,” said Tom Heine, president of Middlesex, N.J.-based Aljex. “Since it is hosted on the Internet, TIN offers resources that licensed software simply cannot. For example, TIN easily links to and integrates with software systems of carriers and shippers. That means TIN customers do more business in less time, with fewer phone calls. The vast resources of the Internet are available through TIN, including critical information from regulatory websites, as well as detailed, versatile mapping.”
