Greven / Stuttgart, November 29, 2018 – Logistic Information Systems AG (LIS) will be presenting its mobile application AppSped for the first time at LogiMAT. With the solution, transport orders can be handled easily and quickly via mobile devices. The app supports the driver in all processes, from communication to damage documentation. In addition, from 19 to 21 February in Stuttgart, LIS will be presenting the FTL module specially designed for cargo traffic. Also on display at the LIS stand (G71) in Hall 8 is the ETA Center for the monitoring of arrival and departure times as well as numerous other WinSped features.
“With the development of AppSped and the expansion of our web-based product family, we are responding to the growing demand for mobile solutions in the field of order management,” says Magnus Wagner, CEO of Logistic Informationssysteme AG. Above all, customers are interested in modern and intuitive user interfaces that simply depict complex relationships. More and more forwarding companies are looking specifically for applications that can be used independently of vehicles and allow the entire status management of a transport. “So it’s not really about putting a telematics system on the market that manages or processes vehicle data,” says Wagner.
Thanks to its intuitive operation, AppSped is ready for use without long lead times. The application supports the driver in all processes – from communication to damage documentation. The integrated workflow manager also offers the possibility to define all processes individually. However, AppSped also has advantages for the dispatchers: The application makes it possible to send orders directly to drivers via electronic means. In addition, the app provides all the relevant information about the respective work steps and processes in real time. In terms of data security, the user has full control, since all information is accessible exclusively via the WebSped server.
“Unique on the market is our second-generation FTL module recently introduced for cargo traffic,” says Wagner. In addition to the popular weekly view, the application enables fast planning by directly entering the data in the disposition table – without detouring through menus that are located upstream. Already for the coming year, LIS has planned program extensions for the FTL module.
As a supplement to the recently revised graphical disposition, LIS will also be presenting the ETA Center at LogiMAT. This feature allows the monitoring of arrival and departure times based on current traffic information, rest and loading and unloading times. “With the ETA Center, we are responding to our customers’ desire for realistic and reliable forecasts regarding the arrival times of their shipments,” explains Wagner. Using an active warning system, the module also informs the user about delayed loading or unloading. For dispatchers, a workflow is generated in the ETA Center, in which delays can be processed and evaluated.
At the LIS booth there is also the opportunity to take a look at the newly developed module for the handling of intermodal transports. With the WinSped project management, which will be launched in 2019, a second version, intermodal freight can be controlled even more easily, regardless of mode of transport.
The booth of LIS AG is located at the LogiMAT in hall 8 | Stand G71.
