Conclusion

 

The gist of the matter is, Oracle leverages its enterprise solutions to pass along its Transportation Management Software. There are two things to note here (1) they are not necessarily the best in this solution segment (2) their integration with other ERP’s such as SAP, IBM, and Microsoft might stand in question. How easy is it to integrate Oracle Transport Management with other ERPs? Would it still be classified as a one-stop solution? The point is, if you want to enjoy the benefits of OTM, you might have to invest in a total overhaul of your ERP. Even then, you might have to face the predicament where you would have to wait for Oracle enhancements for any development in your fleet management system. It’s akin to having a product so isolated, that the maintenance is a hassle just because the original parts are long outdated. Even though OTM is scalable like LogiNext, once you invest in OTM, your exit policy might be far tougher than you might be comfortable with.

 

On the other hand, LogiNext tracks, optimizes, and manages your fleets on the back of efficient self-learning algorithms that become stronger the more they operate. LogiNext integrates more than a million data points every week, which means an exponential growth in accuracy of geo-coding, location tracking, and route planning. LogiNext has dedicated products that cater to optimization, directly translating to cost-efficiency and higher productivity. Furthermore, LogiNext is easily and seamlessly integratable with every ERP including those backed by Oracle.

 

The simple questions you need to ask of your company are:

 

If you have an ERP other than Oracle, would OTM be an easy integration?

If you have an ERP backed by Oracle, is OTM the best choice for logistics optimization?
