Service Transport Company deploys TMWSuite; enterprise software solution provides carrier with real-time visibility, increased efficiencies

BEACHWOOD, Ohio, Aug. 12, 2004--Service Transport Company, a Houston-based transporter of bulk liquids and chemicals throughout the U.S., has selected TMW Systems' TMWSuite(TM) as the company's comprehensive transportation management software.

Service Transport Company chose TMWSuite following a lengthy evaluation process of enterprise software packages.

"We wanted to buy an off-the-shelf solution that would require minimal customization but would still deliver the biggest bang for our investment," explained Jim Brown, vice president of Operations for Service Transport Company. "We believe TMWSuite can provide us with maximum benefits because it addresses every area of our operation. We also feel confident that the software solution and all the associated training will pay for itself in added efficiencies in less than 12 months."

TMWSuite provides transportation companies and private fleets with a comprehensive, integrated suite of operations management software and services to address the end-to-end transportation process - from order entry through settlement. TMWSuite adapts to the customer's business rules, allowing the company to realize improved efficiencies and maximize profits, strengthen customer communication and enhance driver relationships.

Service Transport is using TMWSuite as the gateway for seamlessly integrating information from all of its systems, including order entry, rating/invoicing, dispatch and maintenance. With real-time visibility to revenue, orders and reports, the carrier expects to decrease Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) to within five days of delivery. Other goals include a significant increase in loaded miles and decreased labor costs.

"TMWSuite's proven ability to track the multitude of requirements and variables associated with the complex bulk transportation segment will help enable Service Transport to not only fulfill operational requirements but also realize process efficiencies at the same time," remarked Tom Weisz, founder and CEO of TMW Systems.

Service Transport Company expects to complete the entire TMWSuite implementation process in less than five months.
