Red Bank, NJ, October 18, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- LOG-NET, Inc., an industry leader in international enterprise supply chain software solutions, announced the release of LOG-NET version 6.0, the latest version of the leading supply chain management system. The new version has several new features including supplier interfacing, routing, schedules, itineraries, integrated carrier bookings, mapping capabilities, and milk runs. LOG-NET, with its new features and functions in version 6.0, is able to address evolving customer needs and effectively respond to industry trends that are driving the demand for complex logistics solutions.
Supplier interfacing, one of the new features of LOG-NET version 6.0, accelerates supplier integration and optimizes origin efficiency. The new supplier interface functionality is based on company research aimed towards integrating suppliers around the world needing little or no training. Information is automatically integrated into execution events and document preparation and invoice processing to eliminate multiple inputs. The new supplier interfacing process is the fastest and most efficient user interface in production today.
Some of the most exciting changes are the new functions developed for routing, itineraries, and carrier bookings. Routing and itineraries allow users to optimize order and shipment routing based on product needs and on access to costs, vehicle schedules from all carriers of any mode, and other requirements. These features give customers the ability to re-evaluate and dynamically re-route scheduled products. The booking feature allows the customer to generate carrier bookings to carriers based on planned and optimized itineraries generated by the system. Carriers can also respond electronically with confirmations, counters, or declines.
The mapping feature is redefining supply chain visibility. LOG-NET’s intelligent mapping allows customers to view anything from trade lanes, product distributions, inventory locations, exceptions, and other logistics information intuitively in an interactive graphical mapping interface. The mapping feature has the ability to graphically display real-time shipment status, as well automatically display shipment and carrier status information, even if the carrier does not have GPS capability.
Milk runs, another great feature of version 6.0, gives customers the capability to drop shipments at multiple locations. For example, from a single international trailer, the user is able to record and see where individual shipments have been dropped and how much has been dropped. This new feature is being integrated with leading-edge companies looking to drop shipments from a single international supply point to multiple destinations, customers or stores.
“LOG-NET 6.0 ushers in a whole new generation of supply chain software,” noted John Motley, CEO and founder. “The LOG-NET® system has always been a single integrated solution. Today we are extending that vision. Version 6.0 is the first application to seamlessly integrate planning, optimization, execution, trading partner integration, Customs, auditing and alerting in a single platform for global, multi-modal, end-to-end supply chain management.”
The LOG-NET team continues to address critical logistics and information requirements across global supply chains. With the new version 6.0 features, LOG-NET is breaking new ground in servicing the needs of customer supply chains with cutting-edge logistics planning, execution, optimization and visibility.
