iSaaS™ – Intelligence Suite as a Service

Computing services have changed the way businesses gain access to critical tools. Before cloud computing the only way a business could use software was to purchase large computer systems and pay high software license fees, service costs and maintenance.

Driver Paysuite

Driver Paysuite is a web, Software as a Service(SaaS), application that handles all of your driver’s pay.

Driver Paysuite

Driver Paysuite is a web, Software as a Service(SaaS), application that handles all of your driver’s pay. It calculates and documents each driver’s activities both non-driving and driving. Truck drivers and other drivers have unique and complex activities that are used to calculate their pay. Each driver through their experience and contract may require both individual and unique ways in how they are paid. Each component based drive time, mileage, work time and other units of work can be constructed to represent exactly how a driver is paid.  You can also create many pay types each of which contains its own unique process of payment for different types of drivers and different contracts or employee types.

Driver Paysuite creates reports and allows managers and drivers to see the calculations and give them confidence that they are being paid properly and fairly. Dispute resolution is the strength of this service and can eliminate disagreements that can be harmful to your business  This may be the most flexible Driver Pay package on the market and will satisfy drivers and shippers reducing conflict while building trust.

Driver Paysuite will easily integrate with your company wide payroll system. It uses industry standard web services integration and supports direct integration for older systems or easy manual upload to allow the entire driver pay process to be automated and verifiable. It will import from both On Board systems as well as routing packages. Since we also offer the ISuite(TM) routing system it integrates seamlessly with little integration efforts. Many popular routing systems are also supported.

A Supply Chain Definition for Optimization: Part 2

Innovation Versus Optimization

The lowest hanging fruit in terms of improvement that we may define and separate from optimization is innovation. There are times when a person uses innovation, perhaps even looking at some data, to decide on a course of action that by some measure shows improvement. Sometimes the term optimization is used in this context, but innovation is usually some sort of process improvement or change. Here intuition is a great guide and useful in helping to improve a logistical process. But, the term optimization does not really fit here. In this case I suggest using the word ‘innovate’. To distinguish these, we may say innovation comes from intuition while optimization comes from a completely data-driven approach.

A Supply Chain Definition For Optimization

Posted on May 22, 2013 by

This is the first in a series of articles about optimization in the supply chain. The goal of this series is to stimulate discussion and try to arrive at a clean and distinct definition of what it means in the context of the many activities that occur in supply chain work and projects.

The Start

I struggled for years with explaining and differentiating solutions and services provided by many organizations. The term optimization is frequently used in supply chain discussions both in marketing communication and in project descriptions and articles about them. Recently some people are rightly questioning exactly what is optimization. More…
