Proteus is exhibiting at Logistics Link Live 2012. This prestigious show is being held at the NEC on 13th and 14th June, Hall 3a. Proteus will be exhibiting alongside technology partners Belgravium Ltd on stand 146. The two companies have joined forces to promote their combined solution, and have recently joined together to become the founders members of the Logistics Technology Alliance.
The Logistics Technology Alliance (LTA) has been formed to provide the perfect marriage of logistics hardware and software and a flexible, end-to-end total systems solution. The Alliance offers operations such as 3PLs, transport companies, shippers and retailers a one stop shop for a total logistics system solution. The group combines state-of-the art supply chain software such as Transport Management Systems, Warehouse Management System, ERP, Asset Tracking etc. linked to mobile computing, in-cab technology and wireless data capture systems.
All software is offered in either ‘packaged’ or ‘SaaS’ (Software as a Service) form. Opting for the latter will give customers cloud-based, full functionality without the need for a server located in the office and the obligatory support team. Quick to implement and requiring only a low capital expenditure, cloud based systems can be easily scaled to meet fluctuating business needs of today’s supply chains.
All mobile hardware has been thoroughly tested, from both a laboratory and field perspective, to ensure certified integration with the software offerings of Alliance members. Real-time data capture technology can be added, to great effect, at multiple operational points within a supply chain. As a prime example, a diagram illustrating the integration and data flow between warehouse management and transport management systems can be viewed on the Alliance web www.logistics-technology-alliance.com
