H1 roundup: Platform updates

2 Minutes Read

It’s been a busy six months for 7bridges and our customers. We’ve been helping companies turn their supply chains into a competitive advantage - from exciting nutritional brands like Huel, to global multinationals like Glenmark. 

These and the rest of our innovative customer base enjoy the benefits of a smarter supply chain, thanks in no small part to the updates we continue to add to our platform. These additions are designed to simplify operations, boost efficiency, and give our customers a competitive edge. Let's dive into the highlights of the latest updates:

Avoid Unwelcome Tax Bills with Our Duties and Taxes Calculator:

Nobody likes unexpected costs, especially when it comes to taxes. That's why we introduced our Duties and Taxes Calculator. This handy tool takes the complexity out of calculating duties and taxes for cross-border shipments. By accurately estimating these additional costs, customers can better plan their budgets and ensure a smoother shipping experience. Say goodbye to unwelcome surprises at the border.

Easy Supply Chain Provider Management - One UI to Rule Them All:

Managing multiple logistics service providers (LSPs) can be a hassle, but not anymore. With our unified user interface (UI), customers have a centralised platform to oversee all their LSPs. No more jumping between different systems or struggling with disconnected, siloed information. This streamlines and simplifies communication, enhances transparency, and ultimately improves the efficiency of our customers’ supply chain operations.

Optimise Your Supply Chain with Ease - Visualising Multiple Scenarios in One Simple View:

Making informed decisions to optimise supply chain operations is critical. Our Simulation layer now allows customers to visualise multiple outcomes in a single, easy-to-understand view. By comparing different supply chain scenarios, our customers can identify bottlenecks, uncover optimisation opportunities, and make data-driven decisions. It's like having a crystal ball for their supply chain!

Specialty Carrier Management Made Easy:

Managing specialty carriers can be a complicated task, but we’ve reduced the complexities and built a smoother booking experience. Our latest updates have helped optimise key parts of the process, from booking shipments to tracking and performance analysis. With a few clicks, customers can efficiently handle the unique requirements of specialty carriers, ensuring a seamless experience for both them and their customers. Say goodbye to stress and hello to smooth operations.

Optimise and Automate Shipments via API:

When it comes to supply chain management, automation reduces the need for manual work, and makes operations more efficient - leading to more optimised shipments. That's why we've enhanced our API capabilities, allowing customers to automate various shipment tasks. From booking and tracking to managing carrier integrations, our customers can streamline their operations, reduce manual effort, and enhance overall efficiency. Welcome to a more streamlined and productive workflow. 

Address Book Locations UI Updates for Enhanced Management:

We’ve made improvements to our address book and location management feature. With an enhanced user interface and new functionalities, customers can manage their address book entries in a much more efficient fashion. They can quickly add, update, and organise their addresses, ensuring accurate and efficient data management, meaning they eliminate the headaches of incorrect addresses and streamline your logistics process.

Looking ahead…

The first half of 2023 has been an exciting time for 7bridges, with the release of several new and exciting features, and the onboarding of dynamic new customers. From avoiding unwelcome tax bills to visualising multiple scenarios and optimising shipments, our updates are designed to make our customers' lives easier and their supply chain more efficient.

Stay tuned for more updates, as we continue to listen to our customer feedback and enhance 7bridges to meet evolving needs. In the coming months, we'll introduce more automation, enabling faster and expanded shipping options. Our customers can look forward to even further reduced booking times and improved efficiency.

We're here to support your success and help you navigate the ever-changing landscape of supply chain management.
