CUSTOMIZED TRANSPORTATION TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS
IT solutions that can be designed from the ground up or integrated into existing systems
flexible and comprehensive
Complex businesses often result in inefficient IT environments with standalone systems that do not communicate or integrate well. With an expanding variety of enterprise and logistics IT systems and exponential growth in data volume, companies are challenged to synchronize data and sift through the bits and bytes to get the information that is important for their business operation.
Let us customize your transportation technology
ACROSS ALL TRANSPORTATION IT FOR END-TO-END VISIBILITY
Cardinal’s flexible and comprehensive transportation IT system does this hard work for you. Whether managing fuel consumptions, driver e-logs, or capturing product condition upon loading and delivery, we can customize our transportation IT solution to supply the information you need. Data and the insights mined from systems across your business can be the difference between a great or a disappointing customer experience and between improving or declining profitability.
Order Management System
On the front end is the customer’s order management system, often part of a larger business intelligence (BI) system like SAP or Oracle. The order management system tracks everything for your business but often does not have all the capabilities needed for real-time transportation management. Cardinal’s transportation IT platform easily integrates into existing systems and extracts relevant data to manage your transportation network KPIs.
Using mobile devices in the field ensures collection and access to the right information at each critical juncture of your transportation network. In real time, Cardinal’s driver handheld unit captures unique and customized delivery data to feed back into other business systems. E-forms, scanning, image and signature capture increase productivity and provide proof of successful loading and delivery. The handheld device looks to our platform of specialized logistics systems and middleware for operating instructions by customer and location.
Cardinal’s middleware is where the magic really happens. It ensures information needed for efficient transportation and logistics is collected, manipulated, tracked, and transmitted between the order management system and in-field devices to meet service goals. It provides a common language using customized integration layers across disparate systems.
Analytics & Reporting
With the volume of information available today, distilling what is important versus just interesting can be a monumental task. Cardinal’s portal provides a variety of reports to extract valuable insights from your data. Cardinal IT experts can take your data and analytics to another level through customizable Power BI reports that create visual dashboards for deeper analytics. Standard and customized reports ensure you have the right data at your fingertips to make the best business decisions.
