Colorado Springs, Colorado (Vocus) May 6, 2009 — Accellos, a leading provider of supply chain execution software solutions, today announced Accellos One Optimize, its new load and route optimization solution designed for private and public fleets.
“In our September 2008 Aberdeen Group report, 52% of Best-in-Class companies agreed that creating more efficient routes and schedules was the most strategic action to take in order to improve fleet operations,” said Brad Wyland, Senior Supply Chain Research Analyst for The Aberdeen Group.
Optimize was designed to take orders from an existing order management, ERP, warehouse or transportation management system, apply specific business rules and constraints and then develop loads and routes that save a business anywhere from 10-20% on their shipping costs. It delivers rapid return on investment by reducing miles driven, meeting agreed-upon delivery time windows and service levels and maximizing utilization of the overall fleet assets.
Delivered either as an on-premise application or a “Software as a Service” (SaaS) subscription, Optimize leverages the latest “rich internet application” technology advancements to provide the user with a productive, intuitive user experience delivered through their web browser.
“With companies looking for opportunities to improve customer service levels and reduce expenses, Optimize stands out as an attractive vehicle to deliver value in a very short timeframe,” said Ross Elliott, Accellos’ CTO. “We see it as a very valuable addition to the supply chain suite of products that our customers can avail themselves of.”
Optimize is integrated with Microsoft’s Virtual Earth for rich mapping data and with Maptuit for those customers looking for commercial turn-by-turn directions.
