Barcelona, October 9, 2015- AndSoft was pioneer in 1998 with the first ERP full web for transport and logistics companies. Almost two decades later, e-TMS by AndSoft is a global platform for global management for Transport and Logistics Operators, 100% web. It is a part of a suite of products thought as a tool for managing merchandises and is integrated with e-WMS (warehouse management software) and e-FMS (fleet management software).
Which are the values that make our solutions different?
ERP Transport Software: e-TMS AndSoft in 3 minutes
e-TMS is a transport management platform for any type of transport: full load, groupage, pallets, parcel, distribution. In the template for trips management you can view: company, (all the application is multi companies, multi delegations), person in charge, type of service, type of transport/merchandise, who ordains, origin/destination and measurement units. You can also view: tariffs, package detail, scheduling, and how the trip is going to be defined. You can access cartography, geographical positioning, ADR management, costs, and traceability. And for each order you can view, pallets, pallet interchanging’s, statistics and manage the Eco tax. For all the planning aspects we have different options, some options are best adapted to full load or pallets and other options are best adapted to distribution. We will always use filters. For example what do we have on standby, pending to be loaded? We have tools that will help you manage the loading of the truck, selecting a vehicle we can determine a maximum load per lineal meter, per pallets or any given scale we have determined. We have an allocation system determined by available resources in the system, we can determine capacity limits by kilos, units or by any given value, determined by total entries or by service. And you do allocations directly. We have other tools that are more visual like the graphic planning, where you can view the resources, a period of time, done services and pending services and you can allocate via drag and drop.
Pilu adds: “AndSoft has one of the most flexible models on the market. It has a very consistent core but at the same time it can adapt to any type of change or situation. We have tools that enable us to minimize developments, that are thought for a platform that is very flexible and therefore we can adapt to the needs of the transport or logistics operator. This way our clients can develop their own fluxes of work with the tools available on the platform, with total freedom to create them, maintain and change them, in order to adapt to the evolution of their business. We develop a global platform for the management of transport and logistics, not a transport management program. Our fundamental philosophy up until today, is to be integrators with other software experts in other processes. To integrate is easier and more performing.”
ERP Transport and Logistics software: Consulting information in e-TMS
Types of consultations of information e-TMS AndSoft. Pilu Morante, Product Manager Spain for AndSoft: The AndSoft platform enables you to consult information easily and with flexibility. The searches are done from each screen via three systems: “Immediate searches via key words, and clicking on each column you can filter the information. Search system via a “magnifying glass “ button whereby we can filter on fields.And finally each user can create his own filters via any fields that exist in the trip template. For example you can have a filter on the ongoing year, name it, give an order criteria (for example trip numbers) and you can determine amongst all the fields you have on the screen what you want to view in our final filter. After you have done this process this filter will always be available for you to use. The product manager of AndSoft gives us a glimpse of the coming platform. We are still very excited with what we are creating and it will be on the market in a few years, with all our accumulated know how, on a business level and on a technological level. It will be quite impressive and really innovative, for companies specialised in warehousing, transport and distribution of merchandise.”
Road Costs Andoft: ERP Transport Software e-TMS Logistics
Pilu Morante, Product Manager Spain for AndSoft: Road cost is a module that enables you to manage expenses associated to a trip. It will give you the costs of the realization of a service between two points which include tunnel costs, tolls. Only on roads for industrial transport. It will offer you 3 itineraries taking into account duration and associated costs, carbon emissions per country, tunnels and tolls giving you the cost of the eco tax and in the end you will have a global cost. Then you can compare the various routes offered and decide which is best adapted to you be it because of associated costs or duration. In this particular case you can see that to go from Madrid to Frankfurt we have a route of 15 hours costing 283€, another route of 16 hours costing 296€ or a 22 hour route costing 250€. Once you have chosen a route the module enables you to do geofencing by defining passage points by which the truck most pass giving us information and setting off alarms determined by time and distance informing whether the truck is not going by the passage points.

Once you have established your routes, selecting a route you can send it to your driver’s mobile device either via mail or by SMS. The driver will receive an SMS or a mail with a link to a webpage. On this webpage appears the information about the trip, the driver that will be doing the trip and all the deliveries he has to do, and the information that the client decides to show. In our example you can view the origin, destination and dates. Clicking on each delivery you can program the events you want the driver to do: fill in an inquest, mark the delivery, inform of any delays, and notify an absence. And for each of these options you can decide what type of information you want to appear: time, parcels, and memos. You can also request confirmation or you can request a signature on the mobile device.
When the deliveries have been done the driver can see the deliveries that are pending and those he has done. Also for each of these deliveries he can attach documents to them: photos, recordings, videos that can be viewed through the application when they have been uploaded.
