Flipping Tender Management
on its head!

GPMs new Tender Assistant provides a plug-in for Excel that gives a user access to the full rate functionality of GPM directly within Excel. Whether the customer sheet calls for your company to provide all-in rates and transit information, orif they prefer the charges split out on and different Door and Port combinations to be inserted, the Tender Assistant has you covered. This enables organisations to spend roughly 10 % of their time on filling-in complex tenders and 90 % on figuring out the optimal solutions and pricing for their customers.
CODE

„We believe in a world where rate data is seamlessly transmitted between carriers and their customers, thereby removing manual work and errors"

CODE ensures that you no longer have to manually get rates into GPM, as rates are transmitted seamlessly and automatically via EDI from selected carrier partners (VOCC and NVOCC). This is the future of rate management, ensuring highest degree of accuracy and speed for an ever-changing world.
