Optimize the Value of Your Logistics Data

Transportation data used in supply chain analysis typically includes product volumes, lanes, cost per shipment and much more. Often, your freight audit and payment system is your only source of consolidated shipping and freight expense data – for domestic & international; inbound and outbound; all modes, etc.

Cass turns large amounts of logistics data into valuable business intelligence that enables critical expense management initiatives and more informed decisions. Our analytics solution, CassPort®, organizes data into a hierarchical OLAP (On-Line Analytic Processing) structure. The cube structure allows you to view data from multiple dimensions or perspectives. For example, you might want to view spend by product category, by location and mode. You can sort and filter the freight data to look for interesting patterns and trends. Such flexibility is the reason CassPort® is frequently cited as the industry’s most powerful BI engine. It’s more detailed, more user friendly and more robust than any other.
