Invoice Check

Perform various levels of duplicate invoice checks to filter out true duplicate invoices vs. adjusted invoices.

CONNECT
One convenient location for all your LTL data.

Our best-in-class LTL audit starts here. We combine your carrier and invoice data together for a complete transactional view of your network.

  • Optional TMS API integration. Connect your TMS to our LTL systems via APIs, which enable you to quote and tender shipments with both contracted and Intelligent Pricing™ carriers while also providing us a larger picture of your network activity and helping further reduce billing errors.
  • Pre-audit and duplicate invoice checks. From the very beginning, we confirm your network activity via initial pre-audits, rate audits, and multiple duplicate invoice checks.

AUTOMATE
Our software at work, customized to your unique business rules

Right from the start, we systematically assign costs to different GL strains or cost centers based on your specific business rules. There’s no back-end reallocation, so you’re able to more accurately forecast from the get-go.

  • See the big picture. We customize data labels to reflect your complete LTL network — giving you visibility to manage your spend across your DCs, fulfillment centers, vendors, and stores like never before.

Automated Live Lane Specials™ Savings

Search in real time for Live Lane Specials™ to see if your exact shipping requirements qualify for reduced pricing with an applicable carrier’s optimization need. Live Lane Specials™ are an opportunity for rates below regular contracted terms.

Review and confirm questionable transactions within the Dispute Resolution Center

Increased Visibility via the Dispute Resolution Center

Utilize our Dispute Resolution Center to track shipment details, document images, and self-manage invoice exception processing.

VALIDATE
Gain confidence in your data like never before.

See the magic of our best-in-class LTL audit here. With all of your data connected, your LTL data is verified for accuracy through the lenses of your automated business rules – from your contract terms, special savings opportunities, and even your credits. We bring you a complete and accurate view of your spend.

  • Best-in-class LTL auditing. A best-in-class LTL audit solution that tracks down-to-the penny means less risk overall, as well as stronger historical accuracy for improved budget forecasting.
  • Dispute Resolution Center. Dispute, resolve, and contact LTL carriers conveniently and seamlessly from our Dispute Resolution Center, no additional software needed.

TRANSFORM
Put your data to work.

  • Compare apples to apples, and to oranges. Our process automatically begins cleaning, labeling, and normalizing LTL data so you can start using that data to do more – like strategically plan DCs, understand the true LTL cost of departments, build more accurate forecasts, 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.
Compare your Parcel and LTL networks

Compare Your Networks Like Never Before

Unlock new network optimization and cost mitigation opportunities by comparing, analyzing, and exploring like shipments with different network methods (such as hundredweight).

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 LTL 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 LTL network with our data, people, and resources.

Utilize our software to optimize your LTL 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 LTL cost and service goals.
  • Manage your projects and priorities. We engage with our customers on a regular schedule to collectively manage LTL spend projects and priorities.

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

Gain a dedicated LTL 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 LTL roadmap. We work with you to create an effective LTL strategy aligned to your unique goals and challenges, and that all starts with understanding your LTL network goals, customer commitments, contract constraints, and unique network characteristics.
  • Tap into our market intelligence. Because we serve some of the largest and most complex parcel and LTL networks, we have a unique birds-eye-view of market trends and best practices.
  • Custom interactive models at your fingertips. Gain the ability to run scenarios to uncover the costs and savings of any initiative. Our data engineers can help you make intelligent decisions, simply by putting all the applicable data at your fingertips.

  • Get the most out of your partnerships. We put your data to work for you to ensure you’re getting the highest ROI from your partnerships.
  • Best-in-class contract management.
