Data-driven analytics and modeling provides direction towards an optimal target.
enVista provides the strategic, operational, and tactical industry experience to interpret and communicate the results. Shippers and logistics service providers are faced with various obstacles when trying to understand, analyze, and model their data (or their clients’ data). Transaction-level transportation data is notoriously disparate, being kept in various formats and systems. Data can be housed internally (in a TMS, VRS or OMS) or externally (with your carriers or service providers). Additionally, transportation operations needs to consider the functional areas they support in the business, such as procurement, materials and inventory management, distribution and warehousing, and the all-important customer. This creates the need to not just analyze and optimize shipments in a vacuum but have an acute awareness of how changes implemented from transportation modeling could impact the rest of the business.
To analyze and model, various tools exist in the market, but choosing the right tool and knowing how to use it, is extremely important. Businesses are moving and evolving rapidly, so finding the time in the day to stop to assemble and clean data, license and learn a tool, and design processes to support a change is very difficult.
Businesses are moving and evolving rapidly, so finding the time in the day to stop to assemble and clean data, license and learn a tool, and design processes to support a change is very difficult. There are several market-available tools, as well as proprietary applications, used to analyze or model purchased transportation, fleet, and dedicated capacity carriers.
We have the unique ability to marry data which is collected and warehoused in our own systems with that from disparate systems owned by our customers and third parties and present it in a tool where a manager can efficiently view, analyze and interact with the data, which has allowed us to bring results to shippers while greatly reducing data challenges.
