Startups and SMEs are in a precarious situation now more than ever. Companies are struggling to manage volatile demand, fleet and resource efficiency, and rising costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Locus, a global B2B SaaS company that automates human decisions in the supply chain, has launched a free tool ‘QuickStart,’ a self-serve lite version of the product suite for startups and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to address these very problems.
With Locus’ state-of-the-art artificial intelligence (AI) platform, companies can automate decision making while taking into account the on-ground reality. This free trial is for a period of two months from the start of the subscription.
“Supply chain management has only become more dynamic and complex with time. While changing on-ground scenarios and pandemics like COVID-19, may impact your operations, Locus QuickStart can provide you with tools to improve and analyze the situation. This offering will continue even after the situation on the ground eases up,” Nishith Rastogi, CEO, and Co-founder of Locus.
The free trial gives access to limited features of Locus Dispatcher and Locus MotionTrack, the route optimization solution, and fleet tracking, insights, and analytics solution, respectively. One can also access the Locus On The Road (LOTR) mobile application, with real-time tracking. Locus QuickStart comes with a dedicated two-hour customer support service.
Some of the default features of Locus QuickStart are:
- Distance and time-based optimization
