Tailwind Web-Based TMS

Vancouver, British Columbia

Tailwind Transportation Software is pleased to announce the launch of their new fully web-based Enterprise Transportation Management Software (TMS). The fully cloud-based (no hosting or servers required) TMS has been built specifically to serve rapidly growing small and mid-sized logistics companies.
“We are excited to launch Tailwind Enterprise for agile trucking companies and freight brokerages that need a system robust and flexible enough to manage their entire business, and allow for adjustments to their business model in the months and years ahead,” said Murray Pratt, President & CEO of Tailwind Transportation Software.
“Our new Enterprise application enables freight transportation companies who want to challenge the conventions and norms of the industry – those who want to compete through information sharing, accessibility and collaboration with all the stakeholders in the supply chain.”
Tailwind Enterprise is offered on a monthly subscription basis and features a core TMS augmented by Enterprise features, including Self-Serve Portals. These Self-Serve Portals allow transportation companies to save on administrative time by providing self-service options for their customers, and their carriers, if they broker loads.
“We launched the Tailwind Pro web-based TMS a year ago to provide the market with an ‘easy to access’ TMS with no contracts, no big installation charges or requirements, and no maintenance fees,” continued Pratt. “We’ve now launched Tailwind Enterprise for those entrepreneurial, and enterprise logistics companies that want to challenge the conventions of the industry and find new ways to do business using an online, web-based platform. It even includes an open API for customers who want to create their own custom integrations.”
“We have always been envisioned Tailwind – and our ‘Cloud’ TMS – as being the intersection where smart and agile logistics players could easily manage their entire business – regardless of number of offices or where they are physically located,” said Tailwind Marketing Director, Bradley Zaytsoff. “We could see how companies were evolving – some brokerages adding assets, or trucking companies starting to broker loads – and we knew we had to give them a platform that could better facilitate and help them with those changes. Gone are the days of long sales cycles, lengthy implementations, and expensive customized modules for massive and inflexible software systems. Our customers have told us they want technology that is more responsive to their needs AND doesn’t cost them an arm and a leg.”
Tailwind offers three tiers of Transportation Management Software:
Standard – at $69/user/month, Pro – at $99/user/month, and now Enterprise – at $139/user/month
“At Tailwind, we take, and embrace, customer feedback as a key element of our development planning,” said Pratt. “We’ve had requests for features like Shipment Tracking, Asset & Load Matching, EDI capability, and Advanced Reporting. These features will be added to our Enterprise offering over the next four-months – and will help our customer engage in their very own digital supply chain transformation.”
Demos of Tailwind Enterprise are available on request; please contact Bradley Zaytsoff, 866.441.0441, email bzaytsoff@tailwindtms.com.
