Where do you draw the line whether the enterprise software companies are the information processing, communication, or industry data repository platform? Also, is the role of TMS to provide you with the best rates, manage the external supply chain, act as a control tower, or full-blown ERP for freight forwarders? Well, the reason why these platforms look so confusing is that what's TMS for a manufacturer could be very different from a TMS for a freight forwarder. So where does Descartes stand in its capabilities? And how does it compare with other Supply Chain solutions out there?
In today's episode, we invited a panel of industry experts for a live discussion on LinkedIn to conduct an independent review of Descartes' TMS capabilities. We covered many grounds, including the depth of functionality for a pure-play TMS system, as well as how the ERP needs of freight forwarders are completely different. We also covered why TMS platforms are more of a data platform along with the operational capabilities to manage the external supply chain or maybe internal for 3PL companies.
