Capabilities

Whether you’re looking to integrate a shipping solution into your Oracle environment through the use of Oracle API’s, the XML Gateway, or Fusion, Agile is the partner of choice for many companies that rely on our deep domain expertise of Oracle systems and their related integration methods. By working with a partner that has a detailed understanding of transportation and your Oracle environment, you can be sure of a smooth implementation that will streamline shipping and reduce transportation costs.

Agile has set itself apart from other Oracle TMS solution providers because we have made a strategic investment developing Oracle compliant solutions. As a long-time Oracle Partner, Agile has worked closely with Oracle product management and Oracle technology partners for EBS, the OTM module and other Oracle ERP solutions such as JDE and Peoplesoft. Agile’s commitment to our Oracle business practice is one that continues to be at the forefront of our product development road map, as well as the direction of our organization.

Shipment optimization: before an order hits the warehouse, we can help you save transportation costs by looking for opportunities to consolidate and aggregate parcel loads to take advantage of less expensive LTL and TL services. Our routing rules help ensure that suppliers, purchasing, sales and other employees use the most cost-effective carrier services available.

Multi-modal production shipping: Agile is certified by all major parcel carriers including UPS, FedEx, DHL, USPS, Purolator, TNT, Canadapost, Canpar, and many others. AgileElite links to carrier networks gives you immediate access to over 5,000 LTL and TL carriers to automate routing, rating, tendering, tracking, audit and payment services.

Desktop shipping: If you’re an organization that needs to control desktop shipping for 1,00s of employees or locations, then our desktop solution is perfect for you. We support corporate user authentication and security procedures, to ensure authorized users can print carrier labels or authorization forms easily and quickly, all from a browser-based solution.

Export compliance: our solutions validate international tariff codes and descriptions, perform restricted party screening, and generate all the export documents you need to comply with US customs, while you ship. We are certified by AES Direct for automating electronic Shipper’s Export Declaration filing. We keep an audit trail and a digitized copy of all export documents.

Hazardous material compliance: if you ship dangerous goods, you know how important it is to ensure you have properly labeled and documented shipments. Our solutions provide tools to manage hazardous material classifications, descriptions and restrictions. We automate accurate generation of hazmat labeling, documentation, DOT reports, and audit trails.

Visibility & event management: our integration with carrier EDI networks extends AgileShip visibility beyond the shipping dock. Need to find the status of an outbound shipment? Search by any field and we will show you in transit status down to line item detail. Need to see what’s expected to arrive inbound? Sort by destination location and we’ll show you what’s scheduled to arrive. Our proactive exception alerts tell you immediately about supply chain issues before they become major customer problems.

Settlement: many organizations do not have a complete and accurate picture of transportation costs because important financial information is locked up in disparate information silos. Our shipment server not only stores shipping data, but also imports carrier invoice data, giving you a complete picture of your costs from purchase to payment. Reconcile costs for orders or by department and reduce labor in your accounting department.

Business Intelligence: You cannot manage what you do not measure and we have to tools to identify savings opportunities. Because our enterprise-class solutions collect parcel and freight transportation information across your supply chain, we provide a level of visibility and control that would not otherwise be available within Oracle alone. Use our dashboards and reporting tools to analyze transportation costs, key supply chain performance indicators, and trends.
