Trade, logistics, and transportation companies are faced with an overwhelming amount of challenges related to paper and communication. Exceedingly large volumes of documents are needed to initiate and complete work processes from the initial order through to the final delivery of goods. And, added to this already timely process, the stakes are raised when crossing international borders, calling for a greater number of required documents and increased compliance challenges.
Documents in this paper-intensive industry come from a variety of sources. Equally challenging, the sources of these documents are distributed from many entities including suppliers, customers, carriers, intermediaries, industry-specific systems, and a variety of government entities. Logistics professionals have struggled with paper-intensive processes that require heavy administrative overhead, are prone to high error rates, and lack the level of security demanded by government compliancy mandates or affiliated with C-TPAT standards.
Omtool can alleviate this paper problem and improve the areas that are affected most by these challenges, including:
- shipment processing workforces that must collect and collate the different pieces of documentation required to fulfill their part of the process in the logistics chain
- accounting areas for validation of rates on billing invoices, cross-referenced with their corresponding shipment documents
- post-shipment operations challenged with locating the appropriate supporting documents associated with costly government audits or customer account service practices
