OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--Freightview®, an online freight management software for small and medium-sized businesses, today announced its new app on AppExchange®, the business app store from Salesforce. The app enables Freightview customers to streamline their business by running freight quotes in an environment they already use to manage sales.
Freightview is designed for businesses that ship five to 25 less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments per day per location and want to maintain their direct carrier relationships. The tool helps businesses increase employee productivity by minimizing time spent on shipping activities, and arming them with the data needed to negotiate better rates, ensure accountability and uncover additional savings.
“Freightview customers can now pull total costs and close orders without ever leaving Salesforce,” said Megan Orth, director of operations at Freightview. “Our new app streamlines business by giving customers access to data they typically pull from Freightview within the parameters of the way they already do business, improving overall efficiency.”
Companies that use Salesforce can install the Freightview plug-in and integrate within their existing Salesforce software, allowing users to sync their shipping processes into one cohesive platform.
“Keeping shipping costs low and integrating our e-commerce tools is an integral part of how we ensure efficiency in our distribution operations,” said Jeremy Teele, distribution center manager at The Music People! Inc., a wholesale distributor and supplier of professional audio equipment. “The Freightview Salesforce app allows us to do both of those things. Instead of having to repeatedly log into multiple carrier websites, we can quote and book shipments in one convenient place. It saves us tremendous time and money.”
To install the free Freightview plug-in, visit Salesforce App Exchange and search “Freightview.” Visit www.freightview.com for more information, to request a demo or to start a free, no-risk 30-day trial.
Freightview is the first-to-market online freight management software of its kind. It redefines small and medium-sized businesses’ relationship with shipping by streamlining quoting, booking, tracking and reporting. Employees ship freight in a fraction of the time, and managers gain control and visibility of shipping operations.
Freightview was developed in 2013 as a project of Freightquote, an online transportation broker. It launched to the public in April 2014 and spun off as a separate company that September. In January 2015, Freightview was acquired by global third party logistics provider C.H. Robinson.
