AccuFreight Clients Amazed By Seamless Service Upgrade



    GUELPH, ON, Oct. 29 /CNW/ - Effective immediately, all Trans-Lucent
clients have now migrated to Version 2.0 of the AccuFreight Suite. This
service upgrade was completed with zero downtime and no interruption of
service to any client, at any time.
    "One of the key benefits of using web-based business intelligence
software is that service enhancements can be made by our developers and
deployed immediately," said Shelina Lalani, President of Trans-Lucent Markets
Inc. "Our clients have no need to worry about the administration of technical
issues. They give us feedback about our services and the enhancements they
would find valuable, and our developers do the rest."
    Trans-Lucent is Canada's leading provider of transportation expense
management systems (TEMS), having increased total records stored by over
200,000 individual records in the last six months. Clients include Coca-Cola
(Canada) Ltd., Italpasta and Recochem.
    "The team at Trans-Lucent has been very professional and accommodating,"
says Rozmina Mawani, Manager of Customer Service at Coca-Cola (Canada).
"AccuFreight's Accounts Payable (AP) allows us to audit and approve invoices
for payment of our freight expenditures. The Freight Intelligence System (FIS)
provides us the capability to analyze freight, accessorial charges and
distribution centre expenditures. The prompt accessibility and analytical
capabilities of these systems has made my team more efficient and effective."
    Trans-Lucent clients will now benefit from significant upgrades in
service in AccuFreight 2.0. For example, FIS has always allowed clients to
view shipping costs by carrier, by distribution centre, by billing period, by
invoice - by almost any criteria required. Now, FIS offers the ability to
build trending reports that track, and chart, expense behaviours over time.
Upgrades to AccuFreight's Rate Matrix (ARM), the solution that has replaced
spreadsheets, faxes and e-mails as carrier rate management tools, are also
dramatic. Through ARM, Trans-Lucent can now offer the ability for clients to
pre-cost shipments based on current contracted rates. ARM's online routing
capabilities now allow shippers to pre-determine top carrier selections based
on any criteria, thus ensuring that the decisions made at the dock door always
follow internal business rules set by head office.

    Trans-Lucent Markets Inc. was formed in 2003 out of a desire to turn the
vast amount of financial and logistical data available on shipments into
valuable, revenue-generating information. The founding executives brought to
this company a unique combination of fiscal and strategic financial management
skills, transportation and logistics experience, and technology expertise.
Solution development at Trans-Lucent follows these four guiding principles:
    
    -   All products are deployed as web-based solutions, offering clients
        immediate and uninterrupted access.
    -   All products are "Made in Canada", housed and secured in Canada.
    -   All products are designed to give clients full and complete access to
        their own data, at all times.
    -   All product outputs are designed to integrate easily with popular
        ERP, TMS/WMS and related systems.
