Cloud-based solution enables users to save significant time and labor, increase accuracy and improve success rates
NASHVILLE, TN – September 26, 2016 – Trimble Transportation today introduced TMW Engage.Bid™, a web-based business management application that enables carriers, brokers and third-party logistics (3PL) providers to streamline the freight bidding process. The innovative application allows users to save time and labor, improve accuracy and leverage pricing intelligence to increase their success in winning business.
TMW Engage.Bid greatly simplifies the conversion and analysis of often-complicated shipper RFP documents. Users can then apply critical pricing intelligence – including the TMW Market Rate Index (MRI) – to more quickly assess each opportunity and develop bids that are consistent with their businesses’ competitive strategies and cost structures.
Developed by TMW transportation intelligence professionals who have extensive bid management experience, the application replaces the multiple spreadsheets, emails, paperwork and other manual processes that have long dominated bid assessment and pricing.
“Bid management can be an extremely complex and labor intensive process, and yet it is becoming increasingly important to the success of transportation companies of all sizes,” said David Wangler, president of Trimble Transportation. “This powerful new application offers the productivity tools needed to dramatically speed this process and provides industry-leading pricing intelligence that can enable our customers to more effectively compete to win business.”
TMW Engage.Bid tracks the status of open bids and indexes and stores current and historical bid data in searchable form. This helps ease workflow constraints and enables multiple users within an organization to collaborate in structuring bids. Its intuitive design minimizes training time and enables users of all experience levels to become more proficient and accurate in the bidding process.
As a web-based solution, TMW Engage.Bid is available for use by virtually any carrier, broker or 3PL with high-speed Internet connectivity.
