     “With templates to standardize the booking process, it only takes 12 to 24 hours to get carrier confirmations, where it used to take 48 hours.”
    Erica S. Stoyer, Transportation Planner, Air Products

     “Before, there was a lot of repetition, and sometimes, just to make a booking, someone could be on the telephone and put on hold for 40 minutes, whereas making an order online takes about two minutes. Furthermore, there is less room for errors in processing orders, compared to previously, when information had to be manually copied.”
    Jeremy Fiel, Bookings Manager, California-based Denison
