New ARC Advisory Group research on the transportation management systems market reveals that customers are increasingly looking for real-time visibility solutions and TMS suppliers must either develop these solutions or provide effective partnerships. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has emerged as the most important trend in the market. Two other trends that have tremendous opportunity in the TMS market are ecommerce and omnichannel.
“SaaS solutions are becoming increasingly popular in the industry, and this does not just apply to smaller companies that are targeting Tier 2 and Tier 3 customers. A robust SaaS solution offers the same features and functionality as an on-premise solution but can be deployed quicker and generally more cost-efficiently. Companies need to build a SaaS offering into their near-term growth plan to remain competitive in a crowded market,” says Steve Banker, Vice President, Supply Chain Management, at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Transportation Management Systems Global Market Research report.
