OSSM Cloud Solutions, the Dublin-based Oracle NetSuite solution provider, in collaboration with SmartFreight, are developing a new SmartFreight NetSuite Connector, a freight management concept suitable for companies that use different carriers.
SmartFreight is part of the WiseTech Global group, a supplier of software solutions to the global logistics industry. The company provides its services to over 8,000 logistics companies across 130 countries. In the UK and Ireland, more than 300 businesses are using the SmartFreight platform which specialises in distribution, manufacturing and e-commerce.
Oracle NetSuite is a platform that gives companies the possibility to manage all the business operations in one place. The SmartFreight NetSuite Connector will bring ideas regarding freight management into the Oracle NetSuite platform, giving companies the option to choose the delivery option that best suits their shipping needs.
The SmartFreight NetSuite Connector replaces the access to multiple carrier systems with one single portal which also offers everything the customer needs after completing the booking: price, carrier details, consignment number. The platform automatically filters the suitable shipping choice based on the customer's preferences, and in this way, it helps businesses save up to 15% on their overall shipping costs. Because the shipping process is handled by Oracle NetSuite, there will be no need to train staff on multiple systems, which means that it will also reduce training costs.
Gavin Warwick, Partnership Manager Ireland, SmartFreight, stated: “With continuing market uncertainty, both indigenous companies and global corporations must look to markets beyond the UK to Brexit-proof their business. This partnership creates new opportunities for businesses, enabling them to lower their shipping costs and easily manage the process from a single software platform. E-commerce continues to grow exponentially and the SmartFreight NetSuite Connector provides businesses in this industry, as well as manufactures and distribution companies of all sizes, with a truly global shipping solution.”
Ray Ryan, the CEO of OSSM Cloud Solutions, declared: “This partnership is mutually beneficial for both OSSM and SmartFreight, while at the same time creating an innovative solution for every business in Ireland and the UK seeking to optimise their sales and delivery systems. A centralised platform for shipping, that integrates seamlessly with existing ERP software, removes what has been a huge headache for businesses. We’re predicting strong demand for this service which will build upon our own recent growth and extend our reach to new markets.”
