Last month Portrix was pleased to announce a strategic partnership with WNS, a business process management company based in Mumbai, India. According to the joint press release, WNS and PLS will work together to help improve outcomes for freight forwarders and shippers via PLS’ Global Price Management (GPM) solutions.

 

As a business process management company (BPM), WNS offers a host of operational and back and front-office process solutions. Within its Shipping and Logistics practice, it enables clients in all segments of freight and logistics to optimize costs and improve profitability. Such solutions include cost optimization and streamlining supply chain processes while ensuring customer focus.

 

Business Process Management


Business process management is needed more than ever as budgets tighten amid an environment of change thanks in part to product upgrades, regulatory changes, and disruptive technology. According to IT consultancy Mint Management Technologies, BPM plays an important role in boosting productivity by eliminating the risk and cost of duplication of tasks and efforts across the organization. "A lack of process governance managed centrally through BPM disciplines and technology could have significant consequences for businesses,” the consulting firm noted.

 

According to Keshav R. Murugesh, Group CEO, WNS, “We believe that the combination of the GPM’s technology and WNS’ deep domain expertise in Shipping and Logistics BPM will create opportunities for our clients to drive measurable business value.”

 

Business Process Management and GPM


The goal for both a business process management process and PLS’ GPM is improved efficiency and compliance. Together, solutions will further allow forwarders and other logistics providers to stay flexible and quickly adapt to expected and unexpected changes as well as become a competitive advantage.

 

Henning Voss, co-founder, and CEO of PLS commented on the partnership, “GPM is the ‘go to’ software solution for the logistics industry….WNS will help us stay at the cutting edge, ensuring that our service is as up to date and comprehensive as possible, so we can deliver real competitive advantages for our users.” Indeed, GPM provides a best-in-class rate management application to the logistics industry and continues to add new tools and functionality to the solution in order to provide customers value from their rate data thus helping customers become more productive and profitable.
