Scope is the TMS that everyone loves and we know everyone needs and uses scope differently.
- If you're an operations person, you want to sail through those files to get as much work done as quickly and easily as possible.
- If you're a supervisor or manager, you want to be sure that your teams are getting things done on schedule and in compliance.
- If you're the business owner, then you want to ensure that everything happens profitably while measuring performance, monitoring growth and that the cash flow remains positive.
With this in mind and with three weeks before you can meet us and schedule a demo in person at AirCargo 2017, we wanted to look at the features and functionality of Scope that each group is most interested in. We say that Scope supports People, Platforms and Commerce. In this installment, we'll look at how we meet those three demands for the people using our system to book, create, bill and move shipments.
In the "People" category, Scope makes it simple to move files between users within one office or many offices. From opening the file to issuing documents, sending it to destination for deconsolidation and invoicing on either, end, Scope is extremely flexible.
Our users love the platforms that Scope is connected with. All users have that web browser open with dozens of tabs full of resources. Tabbing back and forth between those resources and a shipment is time-consuming and confusing. Scope has baked in airline schedules, eAWB and ACE transmission and more. Stay in the file, finish the file, move on to the next thing.
Scope is about commerce, and we know that our users benefit when they can do work for customers whose balances are current and credit is in-line. Scope helps operations people by advising current balances, payments and whether or not a client has exceeded their credit limit. They can spend their time on the cargo that is allowed to move, not with things that their accounting departments and managers need to address.
Next week, we'll look at Scope and the benefits to managers and supervisors.
