In the market for a TMS Platform? Looking to take your trucking and logistics operation to the next level? We’re going to let you in on a little secret: It doesn’t need to be expensive. Frankly, every firm deserves the opportunity to simplify workflows and streamline operations with an affordable TMS. Regardless of size, location or market, your business should meet the demands of today’s trucking industry.

And it should be affordable. But first, why even invest in a TMS solution?

The Technology is Better Than Ever

TMS solutions have been around for a while but over the last few years they have been improving by massive leaps. Trucking companies can now gain access to information that can empower them to make smarter decisions and discover new opportunities.

Even more importantly, a good TMS like TransPlus (we’re a little biased) can take a lot of work out of common tasks, including how to disseminate information more effectively to operators. And they can help maintain situational awareness, with intelligent software able to flag and share road conditions, safety issues, and other hazards based on feedback from connected driver systems.

Affordable TMS Technology for All

At TransPlus, we’re passionate about modernizing the transportation industry at every level. This means making sure that every transportation firm has access to the latest in TMS solutions, regardless of the size of the business. Whether you have a fleet of 5 trucks or 5 thousand trucks, you should have access to the same technological innovations to help you stay competitive in the industry.

So how is TransPlus different from other TMS providers? We know how important it is to keep costs low for our customers, while delivering on our goal of providing a TMS that is accessible to all. Here are three ways we make that happen:  

1. Quick and affordable integration

You shouldn’t overpay for an integration. The latest in TMS software should be easy and affordable to get up and running. Companies using legacy systems may require far more time and expense to get your firm started with their TMS – at TransPlus, we pride ourselves on getting our customers using the software as quickly as possible, without breaking the bank.

If you’re shopping around for a TMS solution, don’t be afraid to ask about any hidden costs. If they’re too high... keep looking! In today’s technology landscape, there’s no reason to pay a lot of money to get started with a TMS.

2. Tiered pricing that grows with you

Why should a smaller company pay more for functionality they may not need yet? Pricing should scale based on the size of your business – buying something with all the bells and whistles may not make your life easier! A good TMS should grow with your business instead of making your business grow into it. At TransPlus, we meet you at your level with a price you can afford and the features and functionality that are suited to your business!

3. Faster time to value

A TMS is one of the most important purchases you can make for your business so it’s important that it delivers value as soon as possible. This means the setup process should be on budget and on time so that your team is ready to start using it as soon as possible.

Our expert team will work directly with you and your timelines to get you up and running as soon as possible. We’ll get you trained in no time! And with in-house Customer Support and an extensive knowledge library available, you’ll have all the tools you need to get the most out of your purchase.
