Management Dynamics' Rate Explorer Selected by Engelhard to Improve Customer Service
Leading Exporter to Integrate Ocean Shipment Rates with J.D. Edwards Order Management System
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - February 17, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Management Dynamics, Inc., the
market leader in price and contract management solutions for the ocean transportation industry,
today announced that Engelhard Corporation, one of the largest U.S. exporters, has selected Rate
Explorer® to manage its ocean service contracts and provide its customer service teams with fast,
accurate, bottom-line rates when building export orders.
Engelhard Corporation ships over 35,000 containers per year and needed to overcome the inherent
complexities of ocean pricing when building shipment costs into its export orders. Rate Explorer
will automate Engelhard's ocean contracts and will be used by international customer service
representatives as part of their existing J.D. Edwards order to delivery process. Using Web
Services, Rate Explorer's integration adapter will receive requests from the J.D. Edwards system
used by Engelhard and calculate a complete and accurate bottom line cost for each shipment
returning the charges to the order management system. Engelhard will also use Rate Explorer to
improve its audit productivity and reduce the time to resolve billing issues with its carriers.
"Rate Explorer will improve how we manage our ocean transportation and allow us to realize
targeted customer satisfaction gains in our export business as well as streamline the audit
process", said Ron Keegan, Director Global Logistics 'We evaluated the option of building our own
contract management system, but could not cost-effectively deliver a solution within our
aggressive timelines that matched the proven capability of Rate Explorer."
"Rate Explorer is a powerful contract management solution for both importers and exporters who are
looking for opportunities to improve their customer service and accurately manage their supply
chain costs" , said Albert Cooke, vice president sales of Management Dynamics. "We welcome
Engelhard Corporation to our growing list of shipper clients."
