EKA Solutions will now offer its Omni-TMS platform to brokers who are operating their business partly or entirely remotely due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The digital freight management, or dFEMX, ecosystem platform manages all the customer's freight businesses, including freight exchange and third-party services. EKA serves as the system of record across multiple applications and seamlessly ties into other freight solutions – including TMS and driver applications – and third-party services.
"The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting all our families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life. During this time, EKA wants to help the transportation and logistics industry continue to run its business without interruption," said JJ Singh, founder and CEO of EKA Solutions. "EKA's cloud-based, end-to-end Omni-TMS platform is currently enabling customers to operate at a high performance level entirely remotely.”
"In this uncertain time and though many of our operations are in 'shelter in place' locations, EKA Omni-TMS is a platform that allows us to continue to create and maintain our brokerage, agent, and digital marketplace while keeping our associates connected, even at home and remotely," said Ryan Farrell, President and CFO for Wilson Logistics.
"So, was it hard to tell everyone to not come to the office because of the pandemic? Yes, because we're all used to what we're all used to. But, did I worry about our business? Or about taking care of our customers? No," said Brian Johnson, CEO and Co-Founder, Proserv Logistics, "because we've got the best people, and the EKA Omni-TMS platform does everything we need it to.:
"EKA is a cloud-based distributive platform," added David Buhl, COO and Co-Founder, ProServ Logistics. "Its security protocols are second to none, but it allows our people – and trusted partners – single sign-on access and to operate entirely remotely."
According to Mark Walker, president and chief digital officer, the company will on-board customers with EKA's standard Broker TMS configuration for brokers of all different sizes without charging onboarding fees or committing to a term contract.
