Our value proposition
- Extensive industry knowledge: we were developing and deploying on-line, real-time transportation software before deregulation and have worked with more than 100 transportation organizations.
- Deep technical knowledge: we've worked on the System/38, AS/400, and System i platforms for 35 years and were exposed to the System/38 before it was announced.
- Enterprise focus: ROI, business impact, and strong-sense critical thinking drive our technical decision-making process. By planning for the long term, acting for the short term, and tightly controlling technical debt, we ensure that every IT action directly supports the enterprise.
- LTL/400 is designed specifically for asset-based LTL carriers requiring flexible approaches to bill of lading entry, pricing and discounting, dispatch, revenue accounting, and reporting. Our customers range in size from a few dozen bills/day to customers handling 20,000 bills/day.
- 3PL/400 is designed specifically for transportation brokers, those organizations that provide transportation services by buying and selling services from asset-based carriers. Typical modes include truckload, LTL, and COFC/TOFC intermodal.
- AgiliTrans combines LTL/400 and 3PL/400 into a single master transportation management system.

Our sales and support processes
We don't believe in old-fashioned sales processes where you're hostage to a back-slapping sales rep focused on this quarter's quota. Instead, we want to help you understand our products so you make the buying decision with complete confidence. If our product isn't right for you, we'll tell you so immediately.
Our goal is to help you answer all your questions related to functionality and policy at your convenience and at your own pace. We're always happy to answer your inquiries and what-if scenarios, and we won't pest you with follow-up email and telephone calls.
We provide a very high level of personal and on-site support throughout the implementation process. When we're on-site, we expect to spend our time working directly with business users, the IT team, and the executive team. Every implementation is different and we adjust our approach to fit your resources and culture.
We believe in considering every request and evaluating it against our defined strategic priorities. While many of our competitors routinely decline customer requests for features or modifications, we have a different philosophy. Our answer is, "Why? How will this feature help you? What's the consequence of not doing it?"
LTL/400 and AgiliTrans code is contemporary ILE RPG. As fixed-format
code is maintained, it's converted to free-form. Applications leverage
traditional called programs, service programs, and externalized (static)
procedures. For performance purposes, most transactional programs use
record-level DB2 I/O while lookups/searches use SQL.
