Keith Warren, president of Flagship Logistics Group-Transportation, said, “I have been involved in numerous TMS implementations ranging from home grown systems to the two biggest and the trouble and expense to develop this with input from such a diverse and knowledgeable focus group speaks volumes to 3Gtms and the product. It is evident from the significant amount of development already completed by 3Gtms that the solution will truly provide the market with something unique.”
Dawn Salvucci-Favier, Vice President of Product Management at 3Gtms and head of the program, described the process as agile product visioning, and noted that 3Gtms must be flexible with how this process evolves. “We recognize there are gaps in the mid-market that we want to uniquely fill.

We have already laid the technology foundation and completed critical pieces related to the functionality and usability of the product,” said Weseley.
