VALIDATE
Gain confidence in your data like never before.

See the magic of our best-in-class parcel audit here. With all of your data connected, your parcel data is verified for accuracy through the lenses of your automated business rules – from your contracts, manifest orders, package scans, and even your credits. Leaving you a streamlined view with a clean net bill.

  • Best-in-class parcel auditing. A best-in-class parcel audit solution that tracks down to the penny means less risk overall, as well as stronger historical accuracy for improved budget forecasting.
  • A clean net bill. We reconcile your invoice with the carrier prior to payment, so you don’t pay until credits have been accepted or denied.

TRANSFORM
Put your data to work.

  • Compare apples to apples, and to oranges. Our process automatically begins cleaning, labeling, and normalizing parcel data so you can start using that data to do more – like strategically planning distribution centers, understanding the true parcel costs of departments, more accurate forecasting, and so much more.
  • We process serious amounts of data. Our servers and software rise to the challenge every year to process more than 40 million transactions between major carriers during peak season alone, without delay.
  • Maintain historical data for analysis. Data trends become more apparent over time. We store up to 2 years of historical data, so you can see year-over-year trends to identify bottlenecks and act quickly to fix it.

MONITOR
Put your data to work with powerful BI reports.

Stay in the loop with our Customer Portal, where powerful BI reports can be scheduled on demand and emailed directly to the team members of your choosing.

  • Make data-driven decisions, faster. Our powerful BI reports provide unmatched insights into the health and performance of your parcel network, with data and reports available to you online, 24/7.
  • No additional software needed. View our custom BI reports in the format you need them — including Excel, PDF, .CSV, and HTML — or never open an application, and simply login to our web-based Customer Portal.

ENABLE
Optimize your parcel network with our data, people, and resources.

Utilize our software to optimize your parcel network, or go a step further and utilize our dedicated team and resources to grow your business. The decision is yours.

  • An extension of your team. We assign you a dedicated team that partners with your internal resources (such as E-commerce, Finance, Logistics, Procurement, Supply Chain, and Transportation) to help you reach your parcel cost and service goals.
  • Manage your projects and priorities. We engage with our customers on a regular schedule to collectively manage parcel spend projects and priorities.

ANALYZE
Finally, a strategic parcel roadmap based on predictive insights specific to you — your network, contracts, data.

Gain a dedicated Parcel Spend Management team of business and strategy analysts/engineers able to model and quantify any what-if scenarios or changes to your network.

  • Create a strategic parcel roadmap. We work with you to create an affective parcel strategy aligned to your unique goals and challenges, and that all starts with understanding your parcel network goals, customer commitments, contract constraints, and unique network characteristics.

Gain confidence in your partners and contracts.

Know your carrier contracts and partners are part of your parcel strategy, rather than hindering it, with our dedicated solutions team that helps you manage contracts for pros, cons, and improvements.

  • Get the most out of your partnerships. From identifying which zip codes regional carriers should service, leveraging historical data to rerate your volume under new carrier rates, etc., we put your data to work for you to ensure you’re getting the highest ROI from partnerships.
  • Best-in-class contract management. We load every rate, addendum, and guarantee of your carrier contracts into our system – allowing us to audit your bills down to the penny and powering our contact management process. We don’t negotiate with carriers, but we give you everything you need for effective and efficient negotiations.
