Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) Special Interest Group (SIG) is hosting a user conference this week in Philadelphia. project44 is an Oracle Gold partner with a native integration into OTM, and our VP, Strategic Partnerships, Nadav Weinberg, spoke in front of all attendees. He highlighted the ways project44 enhances the OTM system with a simple implementation process, multimodal network, tracking capabilities, exclusive partnerships, and data and analytics. Here is a rundown:
Efficient and Seamless Integration
Implementing new carriers used to be an extremely time-consuming process—each carrier connection would have to be set up manually, often relying on EDI and requiring exhaustive IT help. project44’s one-to-many, multimodal connection reduces implementation from six or more months down to just a few weeks. If you’re an OTM user, you’re you can seamlessly connect to our entire network of Parcel, LTL, Volume LTL, Truckload, Reefer, and Rail providers.
End-to-End Visibility Through High-Quality, Multimodal Data
Every shipper wants to know where everything is in real-time. Because project44’s integration is multimodal, you and your team are able to receive data across your entire supply chain, and throughout the lifecycle of an entire shipment. It doesn’t matter if you need Parcel data, Rail data, LTL data, etc., all of the relevant information is presented to you in OTM’s interface or in project44’s portal. We use APIs to transfer our data because—unlike the isolated, legacy technologies they replace—they transfer our normalized information in real-time, empowering you to proactively respond to exceptions across your supply chain.
Data integrity like this saves money and provides customers with the best experience available. The ability to manage exceptions in real-time with p44 and OTM contributes to a large reduction in billing errors and fines:
- A top five 3PL was able to eliminate $150K in fines in just one year
- A Fortune 500 shipper decreased errors by 80%
Exclusive Partnerships Driving Customer Success
project44 also brings its exclusive partnerships to OTM users. We are the only official freight visibility partner of Omnitracs, which holds 30% of the domestic market making them the largest ELD provider, we are the first and only technology provider in FedEx Freight’s API Integration Program, and we exclusively power JB Hunt’s 360 Marketplace.
Technology and reliable, trustworthy data is reshaping the way the transportation industry does business. Forward-thinking technology providers like project44 and OTM give users an advantage moving forward by providing them with the best data available and the best tools to leverage it.
