Share the Road with an Innovative Partner
The transportation and logistics industries are complex and growing markets. The increasing volume of goods and products makes it challenging to identify new ways to handle the additional capacity. Those destined to win will adopt technology and enterprise software solutions or find innovative ways to match the continual supply and demand requirements. Identifying partners that enable the ability to focus on strategic goals and redirect IT funds toward them is key.
Free up funds to focus on strategic initiatives
Rimini Street independent, third-party support services and comprehensive support solutions for transportation industry software and logistics industry software are built on a model that helps clients save time, money, and resources. Newly available IT funds and time of staff can be reallocated to higher-level business priorities such as transforming the workforce and workplace, securing and digitalizing supply chains, and meeting ever-increasing consumer expectations.
Gain operational efficiencies
ERP systems are business-critical applications that require time and experienced resources to ensure they receive best-in-class support. Professionals in the transportation and logistics industries understand that to maintain high customer satisfaction rates and loyalty, service and response times matter. Rimini Street third-party support for ERP applications helps maximize uptime with ultra-fast response times and SLAs, covering a broad range of services including customization support and tax, legal, and regulatory updates at no additional cost. This singular focus on client service and success has earned Rimini Street an overall 4.9/5.0 client satisfaction rating.
Leave the vendor-dictated ERP roadmap in the rearview mirror
Transportation and logistics companies can struggle to manage increased competition, labor and fuel costs, environmental regulation, rapidly changing consumer expectations, and technology disruption. Those that are beholden to a software vendor's roadmap and annual support fees can have very few funds available to address these challenges. Rimini Street clients save 50% on annual support fees compared to vendor support, and save up to 90% on total maintenance costs. This enables them to craft a Business-Driven Roadmap that aligns IT spending with business priorities, not with a vendor-dictated roadmap.
