When Speedline Technologies, a world class manufacturer and global leader in process knowledge and expertise for the PCB assembly and semi-conductor packaging industries was looking for a single system to manage their international express shipments, they discovered there were significant cost savings to be made with Precision Softwares global trade and transportation solution, TRAXi3

Precision Software Limited has announced the successful implementation of TRAXi3 at Speedline Technologies to manage multi-carrier parcel, LTL and heavyweight shipping to and from Asia, Europe and North America as well as providing a common document repository to easily share business documents between its US, Asian and European operations. The implementation ensured full process support for intermediate consignee shipments into Mexico.  In addition Speedline now benefit from being able to easily consolidate regular replenishment shipments using the TRAXi3 Dataflow functionality. 

Since implementing TRAXi3, Speedline is realizing significant cost savings as well as increased velocity through its global supply chain. Roger Clement, Director of Worldwide Logistics at Speedline comments: The TRAXi3 tool has brought tremendous advantages to our global fulfillment operations.  Most immediate was the significant processing time savings as we reduced the average order process time by 54 per cent, utilizing TRAXi3s connectivity between our ERP system and our transportation providers.   Additional key benefits included administrative savings and ease of doing business through the web-enabled data repository for easy access to all of our shipping documents by our international offices. Weve reduced our error rate through TRAXi3s automated feed back to our ERP, bringing consistent accurate data back to our global database.   Overall, Precisions TRAXi3 system has delivered exactly what we set out to accomplish, operational efficiencies as well as improved visibility for management reporting.

Despite tight implementation time constraints, a two-way interface between TRAXi3 and Speedlines enterprise resource planning (ERP) system QAD MFG/PRO eB2 created a best of breed end to end business solution to optimize Speedlines global operations. The high volume of international shipments required particular attention to mapping delivery terms and duty payment terms. Joint QAD Precision Software integration at Speedline Technologies is yet another customer verification of the tight integration between the 2 systems.

Greg Lloyd, Precision Softwares Chief Executive Officer, USA said: We are extremely pleased that a company like Speedline is now benefiting from the global trade and multi-modal transportation capabilities of our TRAXi3 product. We are delighted that the system is helping them to realize both cost savings and increased productivity to add to their bottom line. We also have another successful customer implementation which no doubt about it, satisfies both of our companies management teams.
