10 Feb Transportation Project X
Deregulation 20 years ago prompted a surge in the transportation industry at a time when the AS400 was the common industry platform. Due to the rollercoaster economy since the surge, coupled with the fact that the transportation industry is a leading, not a lagging economic indicator, the industry has been resistant to change from this stable platform which is the lifeblood of their business. However, business needs as well as the demands from their customers have changed to the point this platform is no longer able to cost-effectively or handle these demands in a proactive manner. In short, currently there is a desperate need in the transportation industry for an intergraded software solution that will effectively interface operations with and accounting and fleet maintenance functions. Operations generates the revenue for the organization and maintenance needs to maintain the equipment consistent with the demands and the lifecycle of the asset. Simultaneously, accounting must control cash-flow while monitoring fixed and variable costs. Yes, there are solutions that solve one or two pieces of the puzzle however one (1) solution that solves all three (3) is not available that is cost-effective for the small and medium transportation and service sector organizations. Currently, freight volumes are at the highest levels 13-years, the system is at capacity, and freight companies are generating the revenue needed to support a change of this nature. Moreover, if freight volumes continue, the demand for fuel, tires, fuel, and parts will rise and they will need tools to manage fluctuations
1. Find three companies that willing to work together and integrate the systems not interface them. Companies must have the following:
a. Collaborative culture.
b. No high pressure sales for service
c. Adapt to the needs of the industry.
d. Willing to build a cost-effective solution that will produce long-term sales.
2. Build a new solution from the ground up.
