VANCOUVER , Jan. 23, 2020 /CNW/ – LiteLink Technologies Inc. (“LiteLink”) (CSE:LLT)(OTC:LLNKF)(FRA:C0B), a key player in digital freight and logistics platforms as well as payment solutions, is pleased to announce the full software-as-a-service (SaaS) Subscription Model of its 1SHIFT Logistics platform. This new SaaS model allows shippers, carriers, and fleets to seamlessly self-register and self-onboard onto the 1SHIFT platform at their own pace, without interactions with customer support personnel. With the launch of this SaaS Model, LiteLink is also pleased to announce that it has on-boarded its first paid subscriber, Pommes Ma-Gic Inc.
As logistics has become more complex, it has become increasingly difficult to identify software pricing and onboarding online. Logistics software vendors have moved away from standard pricing to negotiating prices one-on-one to maximize profits per customer. 1SHIFT has opted to post their pricing models and have based pricing packages on the number of shipments a business conducts per month. The SaaS subscription packages will include a ‘FREEMIUM’ model that will be free to use for businesses that conduct less than 5 shipments a month.
“At LiteLink, we want customers to see how easy it is to manage logistics and freight for their businesses with 1SHIFT,” said Ashik Karim , CEO of Litelink Technologies. “As with any good software package, the best way to get the product into customers’ hands is with a free subscription version while at the same time providing a seamless experience to upgrade to best fit paid subscription models.”
This innovative and intelligent SaaS product will support shippers, carriers, and brokers to:
- assign & gain full real-time and historical insights into your carrier or fleet performance on blockchain guaranteeing the authenticity
- give all customers and receivers a real-time tracker to follow their shipment to the highest degree of accuracy
- plan & manage route optimization for carriers and fleets to guarantee the most efficient route taken
- auto-dispatch and manage shipments with your own fleet or your preferred carrier network
- provide end-to-end shipping visibility and business audit for claims, late fees, and problem management with proof of audit
- manage all proof of delivery digitally allowing for seamless triggers for invoicing and billing
Pommes Ma-Gic, now a paid subscriber of 1SHIFT, is headquartered in Rougemont, Quebec. Recognized for many years as “Capital of the Apple,” Rougemont is strategically positioned in the heart of Quebec’s produce industry.
“Our decision to choose 1SHIFT as our platform for logistics was easy. Since day one of our trials, we saw the cost savings and value add of this platform. For example, my bill of lading process is now streamlined, driver-dispatcher constant phones are now drastically reduced and I have stats on the performance of my fleet to make quick decisions” said Pommes Ma-Gic President and General Manager Sébastien Alix.
LiteLink has broken ground within the agriculture, retail, and fleet services industries across Canada and the US over the last six months. Transitioning to the SaaS subscription model is a natural progression in its product offering, allowing anyone to sign-up at their own pace and timeline.
LiteLink would also like to announce that its Chief Financial Officer, David Kwok, resigned effective December 31, 2019, in order to focus on building his own accounting practice. In the interim, Daniel Lee will oversee CFO responsibilities while Litelink conducts an executive CFO search.
