Tigers has launched SmartHub:Connect – the world’s first combined freight, e-commerce and logistics portal. The Cloud-based platform reportedly gives customers end-to-end visibility of the supply chain globally, from transport, to e-commerce fulfilment and because it is modular, it delivers cost-effective and customisable solutions.
One application is its virtual warehouse solution, which will support customers post-Brexit by allowing them to split stock over two distribution centres and routing orders to the correct hub for fulfilment. Tigers is also testing a live quote engine facility, which will give customers access to instant quotes between its locations globally.
“Our platform is unique because it delivers glass pipeline visibility of both your global transportation and e-commerce fulfilment from factory to shop floor,” said Andrew Jillings, Chief Executive Officer, Tigers. “We are a global logistics and transport company with a history of delivering innovative supply chain and enterprise solutions, and our focus from the outset has been on technology, particularly on disruptive technologies.”
According to the manufacturer, SmartHub:Connect is scalable, secure and gives Tigers’ customers access to e-commerce services and systems such as Amazon, WooCommerce, the Tigers eShop, top US retailers Macy’s and Nordstrom, as well as European and Australian retailers.
Its ‘Rejected Orders’ Portal allows customers to manage website orders and e-requests using validation rules, supporting them as they grow into new markets. Tigers is currently implementing and testing a live quote engine developed by Doozee, which will allow customers to access live quotes between all Tigers locations globally and to customise the service they receive through SmartHub:Connect.
“The tech-savvy consumer is ever-more demanding, and with the accelerated digitisation and democratisation of information we must be in a position to support our customers, so that they can deliver for the consumer, and grow and develop into new markets,” said Jillings.
