PCS Software Releases 3rd Quarter Updates to the AI Transportation Management Platform

PCS Software | November 07, 2022

PCS Software (PCS), the leading transportation management (TMS) platform provider for shippers, carriers and brokerages in North America, announces new software updates that enable customers to further streamline freight transactions and enhance their service capabilities. New Features Unveiled for PCS Shipper TMS PCS Software updated its Shipper TMS platform with features that harness the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to automate and improve results in key transportation and logistics processes. The feature updates include: LTL Rating - PCS Shipper TMS can now automate the LTL rating process. This update reduces errors and frees users from manual work, allowing companies to redeploy resources on more valuable activities like generating revenue, procuring capacity, and finding cost savings. DAT Rate Index - Users can now take full advantage of their investment in the DAT rating index. A robust integration with PCS Shipper TMS connects with the DAT rating index and gives users instant access to rates based on equipment type (flatbed, dry van, reefer, etc.), origin and destination, rate type (truckload, LTL, intermodal), period, geographic market, and more. Quote APIs - PCS has added the ability for users to access and book capacity for new trade lanes and commodities without resorting to spot market rating AND without procuring a contracted rate. The new service is backed by leading freight brokers such as Uber Freight, Convoy, and more. PCS Shipper TMS helps users save time and money by directly accessing a guaranteed rate for loads they need to cover. The above features are set to launch alongside several updates for Shipper TMS that include improved reporting capabilities, support for the movement of inbound materials, and a better user interface and experience (UI/UX). PCS Carrier TMS Expanding Capabilities for Dispatch Service Providers Dispatch service providers can now access a cutting-edge TMS to service their carrier clients. PCS Carrier TMS is now offering unlimited subordinate databases under a single company. This allows providers to streamline dispatch services for an unlimited number of clients without the need to jump from app to app or manually manage their databases with disconnected spreadsheets. By managing their services within a single platform, independent dispatchers can scale operations as their business grows without costly investments into additional TMS accounts. Open Trial for PCS Prime Express PCS is announcing that PCS Prime Express is now entering open trial stage. Prime Express is a novel AI Transportation Management Platform (TMP) that optimally matches loads, assets, and drivers within networks and across supply chains. Utilizing an innovative and holistic approach, Prime Express is a departure from traditional transportation management software. Rather than serving individual sectors of the transportation and logistics industry, PCS has developed a single, unified web-based solution that serves both shippers and carriers and brings them together into a single platform. The software automates load planning for shippers as well as dispatch notifications to carriers with one simple platform that integrates with their existing PCS Carrier or Shipper TMS. With built-in artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities, this new method offers immediate benefits not found in other systems, all through an easily accessible portal. "The release of Prime Express comes at the perfect time. With access to powerful load and driver optimization technology in a single, easy-to-use platform, shippers and carriers of all sizes will be able to increase efficiency and sharpen their competitive edge." Paul Beavers, CTO of PCS Software About PCS Software PCS Software is an AI-driven transportation management platform leader fielding disruptive innovation for mid-to-large sized enterprise shippers, carriers, and brokers in the United States and Canada. Cloud-based, API-integrated, PCS Software automates the entire transportation logistics operation via a single, comprehensive solution.

AvePoint Partners with Microsoft to Launch Microsoft Syntex, the Next Generation of Content Management and AI

AvePoint | October 17, 2022

AvePoint, the most advanced SaaS and data management platform provider, today announced it is one of the select featured partners for the launch of Microsoft Syntex, which uses advancements in cloud computing and artificial intelligence to transform how content is created, processed and discovered in Microsoft 365, helping businesses to empower their people and automate workflows at scale. Announced earlier today during Microsoft Ignite 2022, Microsoft Syntex is adding new capabilities to use advanced AI and machine teaching to amplify human expertise, automate content processing and transform content into knowledge. Backup and Restore: Microsoft Syntex now offers the ability to backup and restore SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, and OneDrive. When combined with AvePoint’s award-winning data protection solution for Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Azure Active Directory and Virtual Machines, organizations can have a complete, end-to-end backup solution that enables them to own their service level agreements, protect their most critical data and maintain flexibility in where data is stored. Information Management: The new release of Microsoft Syntex enables organizations to archive entire site collections within the Microsoft 365 ecosystem, allowing organizations to index the content for eDiscovery and compliance purposes. When combined with AvePoint’s holistic information lifecycle management solution across Microsoft 365, SharePoint, Exchange Online, social media and file systems, this enhancement provides organizations with command and control of their records from creation and classification to retention and disposal in one centralized SaaS platform. Content Management: Microsoft Syntex now gives IT administrators visibility into sharing links and sensitive files in SharePoint sites, with the ability to then initiate reviews by those responsible for the sites that are housing these files. This new capability, when combined with AvePoint's formal recertification and renewal capabilities for all Microsoft 365 workspace types, means organizations will have the best of formal and informal access review capabilities to both satisfy audit and compliance teams, and still offer on-demand review of potentially risky sharing activity. “We’re excited about the interoperability between AvePoint products and Syntex to enhance, connect and manage information in SharePoint and OneDrive. “By partnering with Microsoft on the next generation of Syntex, organizations can rest assured they will have a holistic solution for collaborating with confidence across their entire Microsoft 365 environment, and we are excited about the ability to orchestrate and extend these rich new content management features in Microsoft 365.” John Peluso, Chief Product Officer, AvePoint As a launch partner for Microsoft Syntex, AvePoint continues its tradition for the last two decades of working closely with Microsoft to produce best-in-class solutions enabling global organizations to thrive with the latest Microsoft technology.
