EMASUITE FLEET SYSTEM (EFS)
The EMASUITE Cloud Fleet System is a revolutionary transportation management solution that truly sets the industry standard. With its ability to seamlessly manage orders, shipments, and assets on a single platform, you can easily determine the most efficient and cost-effective way to fulfill your transportation needs. Whether you prefer to utilize your own internal capacity or turn to external service providers, this comprehensive solution allows you to make informed decisions and optimize your transportation budget. Say goodbye to the hassle of juggling multiple systems and hello to streamlined success with the EMASUITE Cloud Fleet System.
EMASUITE Cloud Fleet System provides robust support for the entire transportation lifecycle. EMASUITE Fleet Management deepens these capabilities to include the management of fleet resources (driver, power, equipment) involved in fulfilling orders and shipments. This integrated approach to managing for-hire and owned assets will benefit shippers, who utilize a private or dedicated fleet, and logistics service providers, who utilize assets in providing service to their customers. With enhanced integration to EMASUITE Cloud Supply Chain Management and other ERP solutions, organizations can leverage Fleet Management capabilities in context of the broader supply chain to achieve end-to-end support for all aspects of fleet and asset management:
· Asset lifecycle management
· Driver hire, education, scheduling, and payroll
· Order capture and Customer Relationship Management
· Fleet planning – consolidation, fleet vs common-carrier trade-offs, multi-leg, multi-mode
· Dedicated fleet resource optimization and execution
· Driver and equipment assignment, and utilization
· Asset tracking
· Asset inventory management at asset pool locations
· Driver dispatch, mobile communications, tracking
· Costing – fleet, external service providers, special services, accessorials
· Payables – driver pay, independent contractors and external service providers
· Billables – bill customers for service, asset usage
· Cost accruals and revenue recognition
· Damages, claims and dispute management
Whether you possess a private or committed fleet, it is essential to fully harness its potential by carefully considering the condition of your assets (such as their availability, driver schedules, and location) when planning work. The EMASUITE Fleet Management Cloud incorporates the current state of your fleet into the planning and optimization process, ensuring that fleet resources are utilized to their full potential and taking into account the capabilities of external carriers. This specialized support is particularly useful for dedicated fleets, where the focus is on maximizing the use of dedicated assets rather than worrying about driver assignments.
The many-to-many optimization of drivers and equipment takes into account intricate hours of service restrictions, drivers' home locations, the location and status of assets, and inventory positions. The decision support system includes customizable, multi-paneled screens that display key data elements across multiple entities, as well as real-time, street-level maps and Gantt charts with drag-and-drop functionality, providing visualizations of resource availability and locations.
