Most supply chain and logistics software applications are developed for one sector and can only be adapted to other sectors – or industries – with significant modifications. One of the benefits of Software as a Service (SaaS) and Cloud Computing is that applications can meet the needs of a wide range of sectors and also different sized companies.
One of the foremost examples of this is CarrierNetOnline (CNO), the logistics and transport SaaS application from UK software house Deltion www.deltion.co.uk. A system originally developed with the logistics industry in mind is now finding acceptance in manufacturing, retail and wholesale.
“CNO is used by logistics and transport companies working in most sectors, including manufacturing, FMCG, retail, homes deliveries and hazardous good” Piyush Shah, CEO of Deltion says. “It is therefore not surprising that it is easily adapted to meet the needs of the industries that they serve.”
Because of the Software as a Service delivery model, modifications made to meet the needs of one industry are usually included in the software and available to other companies either in or serving that industry. “CNO customers do not pay for features they do not want or need. They also only pay for transactions which they actually carry out in their business” Mr Shah said. “As the business grows they take advantage of the CNO scalability and pay for extra capacity as needed. If they move into a new product or industry range, they take on any of the existing features they may need. If market conditions – such as many are facing today – means there is less business or a withdrawal from a sector, the user has the benefit of reduced transaction charges – scalability works both ways”.
