Assessing the resource requirements and total cost of ownership involved with supply chain transformation initiatives is a key aspect of your software evaluation and implementation project. In addition, identifying opportunities for improvement in both operations and technology becomes the foundation for an effective business case that shows demonstrable return on your technology investment. But where’s the best place to start?
4SIGHT’s business case methodology has been fine-tuned through years of experience. We guide our clients through the process of capturing all relevant benefits to be gained through investment in Warehouse Management Systems, Labor Management Systems, and Transportation Management Systems. We also quantify the costs for purchase and deployment, including the internal costs companies often miss.
Our deep experience enables us to accurately predict the true cost to successfully launch your system. This will give you the confidence you need to work through the capital approval process within your company and avoid future loss of credibility from budget creep. Armed with a full understanding of the benefits, investment, and operating costs, the 4SIGHT team will prepare the calculations, including the ROI, NPV, and payback period your CFO will require to approve the project.

4SIGHT’s professional expertise with Labor Management System (LMS) implementations has enabled our clients to save millions of dollars. We know from experience that your typical labor management/pay for performance project is really a transformational change project.

Your business has identified accurate requirement definitions and laid the groundwork for a successful implementation. However, not all requirements can be met with standard configuration or process changes.

From minor changes and reporting configuration to larger process improvements, 4SIGHT can develop your requirements using our software development lifecycle (SDLC). Our goal is to raise the bar for your implementation, exceed your expectations, and ensure your project is completed successfully and on time.

Transportation Management Systems (TMS) are critical to both shippers and logistics service providers alike as they collaborate with their customers and network partners to minimize costs and provide enhanced service levels. These powerhouse solutions oversee the movement of all inbound and outbound freight modes (including intermodal), at the domestic and international level. TMS solutions serve to optimize freight planning, provide rate and transit time analysis, and give service requests. They also provide load confirmations to and from carriers to optimize their routes and to generate electronic delivery confirmations.
Successfully implementing these projects is not easy. 4SIGHT uses a structured and proven TMS implementation methodology to guide you through the process, but it's our resources who make the difference. Our experience, relentless commitment to customer success, upfront planning methodology, and Implementation Roadmap set us apart from the competition.
