US: Trimble has announced two enhancements to its Visibility platform. The new features provide shippers and carriers with crucial insights into supply chain data through a single platform, allowing them to make more informed decisions and enhance customer service.
Visibility’s carrier portion of the platform now offers an intuitive interface to allow carriers to quickly track and update loads directly in their shippers’ Visibility network. This enables shippers to work with a broader base of carriers, regardless if the carrier uses an integrated Transportation Management Software (TMS) solution or manually enters loads. Carriers are also able to leverage the new functionality to track and manage the status of their loads directly within the platform.
Visibility’s analytics capabilities now feature an enhanced front end powered by Microsoft Power BI. The new front end enables users to realize more flexible and powerful data visualization and reporting, giving shippers insight into key details such as on-time percentages, detention time, stop, location and lane-level analysis. Shippers can use this data to review operational and carrier partner key performance indicators (KPIs) to identify improvement opportunities, help reduce costs and create operational efficiencies.
“With the rapid movement of freight through the supply chain, our customers require technology that can keep pace and enable streamlined communication and access to shipment data,” said Bryan Coyne, general manager of Visibility for Trimble Transportation. “These two new features represent the sustained evolution of our Visibility platform, as we continue to enhance its capabilities to provide unparalleled access to real-time information across the supply chain.”
