TAGG Thoughts

Gotta Keep Moving!

With the success we have been blessed with over the last couple of years we have learned never to get complacent; a business is always on the move. The key is to adapt and adjust to meet your objectives or your movement will be backwards versus forwards. This year we have committed to improving our technology platform. We know that clients rely on us to provide them with state-of-the-art technology that gives them the information and tools they need to grow their business. It is our job to make sure at TAGG they have access to this technology. We currently have 3 technology initiatives, all interrelated, with the overall goal to upgrading our platform.

  • a new warehouse management system (WMS) for better inventory management and order processing;
  • a transportation management system (TMS) to help clients save money on small package, less-than-truckload and truckload freight;
  • a document management system to create a paperless environment where documents can be easily shared with clients.

We hope to have many of the difficult decisions made by the end of the year and to be moving forward with implementation as we start 2011. We also plan on involving many of our friends and clients in the process so that we make the most informed decisions possible. We will keep you posted in the upcoming months.

All the best,
Tod and Gary
