Transics adds Italy’s Sima Software to its list of partners

Cooperation with new software partner will foster integration of Transics’ solutions, thus helping Italian carriers and logistics companies raise efficiency and profitability

High-end fleet management solution provider Transics International NV announces a partnership with Sima Software. This Italian IT services provider is an expert in Transport Management System (TMS) software for transport and logistics companies, boasting many impressive references in its niche market. Transics will now add Sima Software to its network of local TMS software partners that stretches across Europe, in all the markets where Transics is active. By integrating the SGA Sima suite into Transics’ fleet management solutions, both Transics and Sima Software can help Italian carriers further drive efficiency and profitability.

Established in 1982, Sima Software has increasingly focused its expertise on the transport and logistics market, over the past few years. The highly scalable SGA Sima software suite supports (land, water and air) carriers, logistics companies and courier services in every step of their administrative tasks: from order reception, planning, delivery and payroll thru’ to billing. The company’s keys to success include its dedication to innovation, the modularity of the software and its customer-oriented approach: Sima listens to the needs of its customers and customizes its solutions to meet those needs.

Strategic partnerships with local partners

As a leading provider of truck and trailer management solutions, Transics has partnerships with local TMS software vendors in every European market where it is active. The partnerships are not exclusive dealer agreements, but imply that both partners have agreed to integrate each other’s solution into one total solution. Thanks to the integration of Sima software with Transics’ solutions, all data captured in the on-board computer and back office software are automatically available in the transport management solutions. In this way, carriers can work more efficiently, more accurately and more cost-effectively.

Smooth integration

Integration between third-party software and Transics’ fleet management solutions is facilitated by the modular Transics TX-TANGO web services suite. The TX-TANGO web services platform provides a comprehensive catalogue of functions, through a standard SOAP interface. As a result, software integrators – within the transport company or an external software partner – can swiftly retrieve information from the Transics database, without detailed technical knowledge, and easily build state-of-the-art transport enterprise applications.

High quality and innovation

Sima Software is a new value-added partner that perfectly complements the existing group of regional vendors that Transics cooperates with. “The Transics offering for truck, trailer and driver management is finding its way to more and more Italian carriers and logistics companies” said Mr Mauro Pederzolli, CEO at Sima Software, “as the brand is synonymous with high quality and innovation. Just like Transics, we’re committed to innovation and develop products that help carriers optimize their efficiency, while cutting costs. We are delighted with this strategic partnership, which allows us to offer our clients a one-stop-shop for their transport management needs.”

Only the best partners

“We only partner with the very best players in every regional market and know that Sima Software meets our high quality standards. It’s an experienced, knowledgeable and customer-oriented team that understands the needs of the transport market and distils them into user-friendly solutions,” Walter Mastelinck, CEO of Transics added. “Some of their customers, like the large transportation group, Gruppo Arcese, use Transics solutions already. We’re grateful for this opportunity to tailor our offering to meet the exact needs of Italy’s leading carriers and logistics companies.”
