Specialty Crop Trade Council Selects Rate Explorer from Management Dynamics

Established Association Automates Ocean Service Contracts To Expand Portfolio Of Value-Added Services And Grow Membership

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - July 27, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Management Dynamics, Inc., the market leader in tariff and contract management solutions for the ocean transportation industry, today announced that Specialty Crop Trade Council (SCTC) has selected Rate Explorer to automate its ocean contracts and provide enhanced services to its member companies.

Delivered as an on-demand service over the Internet, member companies can quickly access SCTC contracts, find rates, and compare available service options.

Rate Explorer maintains dynamic links to all of SCTC carrier's rules tariffs to provide complete and bottom-line calculations, offering the accuracy required by member companies to integrate these rates with their international transportation processes.

"Rate Explorer helps us expand our service offering and provide more value for our member companies," said Rich Novy, president and CEO of the Specialty Crop Trade Council. "We have seen strong demand for our contract negotiation and management services and Rate Explorer is a key element of our plan to build our association throughout Europe and Asia."

Rate Explorer helps associations manage two critical dimensions of their business. First, the system automates contracts to eliminate the administrative burden of managing text-based contracts, updating spreadsheets, and tracking changes to underlying rules tariffs. The system also provides critical information to establish a negotiation strategy and successfully sign contracts that best represent member needs.

Second, by providing the member companies with access to Rate Explorer, they can more efficiently find available rates, optimize booking decisions and improve the accuracy of their freight audit process. For the SCTC, Rate Explorer will automate eleven service contracts and be offered as a service to the logistics departments of eighty-six member companies.

"Rate Explorer addresses our member companies' demands for a contract management service that provides fast access to our negotiated rates, improves rate accuracy by taking into account all amendments and surcharges, and simplifies service-cost decisions," said Rick Murphy, assistant secretary of the SCTC. "Also, since Rate Explorer is available as a service over the Internet, our member companies can access rates from anywhere in the World to make better day-to-day decisions that improve their ocean logistics operations."

"Associations like the Specialty Crop Trade Council are increasingly looking for opportunities to automate their back-office processes, get closer to their member companies needs, and expand service offerings," said Management Dynamics' president and chief operating officer John Preuninger. "We are very pleased that SCTC has selected Rate Explorer to expand their portfolio of value-added services and look forward to helping them grow their membership worldwide."
