When leading a fast growing organization into the future one has to ensure that growth entails proper management, identification and streamlining of processes to increase visibility, efficiency and prevent losses due to avoidable errors. In an effort to achieve this, organizations invest heavily into appropriate CRM and/ or ERP systems that best suit their business needs and budget. The packaged transport management add-ons available off the shelf may not always provide the right fit for your requirements and customizing your ERP to incorporate the right features and business rules not only make sense but prove to be cost effective as well.
