Note: Sorry some of them are repeated, but with different termonilogy so you can have a better idea. You can request the free demo to know more.
It will be Web-Based.
Is it different if its Web-Based or cd instalation in every pc?
employees using the software at the same time range from 5 to 200 during office hours. Does it have to do with Internet Speed, Hosting Server or software Development?
How much would it cost?
How long would it take?
Is it a good idea to have this kind of software in the same Company-Website just with the Log-In for Employees?
How much would it be with api and soap(automated programming integration) (simple object access protocol) included?
we are planning to hire hosting/server for now, but, how much would it cost if we want to have our own server too? equipment, maintenance, etc? can you give me an idea please?
is there a way to know if those tms services online have their own hosting/server?
here i provide a few more links offering tms software online, so you can have a better idea:
www.StrategyLive.com (in this one they offer INTERFACE with other web-based services,
which we need too, so.. Do we need to have a Contract/Agreement to link our
Company software with those web services?)
(see video in this website)
--Next ones are Local-Based
Note: Make sure you check examples for brokers, not carriers or shippers. You can check them but only for understanding.
Here I provide some Youtube Explanation Videos of TMS:
