If the primary intent of implementing freight audit & payment services is to increase efficiency and optimize logistics spending, then it stands to reason you want the most practical and affordable FAP solution you can find… right?
But how do you know which type of solution offers you the greatest value—both at present, and into the future?
- On the one hand, you’ve got broad ERP and Transportation Management Systems, which often offer FAP modules as part of large-scale software suites. In general, these are big, complex systems that do far more than just FAP.
- On the other hand, you’ve got the option of smaller, best-of-breed FAP solutions, built specifically to handle freight audit & payment, without the excess and complexity.
The debate between suites and best-of-breed systems is decades old, but it’s always one worth re-visiting, particularly in the logistics space. Technology in this arena is incredibly dynamic today—and with the increasing importance of the Internet of Things and logistics data analytics, it’s important to remember that the solutions you implement must be capable of addressing these topics and adapting to changing supply chain ecosystems.
We’ve put together a new ebook to help you navigate this suite vs. best-of-breed decision. It outlines some of the most critical differences, while making the case that bigger is not necessarily better in all circumstances. This resource is a quick read, and it’s free—so download it today. Then let us know what you think in the comments below. We’d love to get your take on the subject.
