Freight One automated the system of calculation of rates on the basis of SAP TM
Freight One has introduced a tariff calculator, a unique system for calculating the cost of cargo transportation services on the basis of SAP Transportation Management (SAP TM), which allows in a short time frame to form the optimal commercial offer for each client.
“One of the key tasks of Freight One is the development of customer service. It is important for us that partners are convenient and comfortable working with us. The project, implemented jointly with the company KORUS Consulting, has no analogues in the market in terms of accuracy and complexity of calculations. Automation of the pricing process, adapted to the individual tasks of the company and service contracts, helped to optimize the work of employees of the commercial unit, to make the system of rates calculation as operational and translucid as possible," said Vadim Uryas, Deputy Chief Executive Officer for Information Technologies.
At this stage of development, upon receipt of an application for the cargo transportation, the manager of Freight One enters basic information into the CRM system, which transfers them to the tariff calculator. When processing data, the service takes into account the route, information about the required kind of rolling stock, type of cargo and other parameters, and also communicates with an external program - Rail-Tariff, which helps to calculate the optimal cost of transportation. After the calculation is approved, the commercial offer is generated automatically.
“Together with Freight One’s specialists, we have developed a mathematical model for calculating the cargo traffic of Russia and the CIS, taking into account tariff scale and logistics features. The software solution allows the company to respond more quickly to new client requests. The project in Freight One is one of the most interesting for us. In addition to the already implemented functionality, we are working on the implementation of dynamic pricing tools, as well as scaling the system. I hope there is still a lot of fruitful work ahead of us, " said Nataliya Semichastnova, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of KORUS Consulting.
Our plans include integration of the tariff calculator with the company's external website, so that partners can independently calculate the cost of transportation.
