Benefits Include Improved Availability, System Performance and Rapid Software Deployment

NASHVILLE, TN - TMW Systems, the largest developer and integrator of transportation management software for the trucking industry, today announced the launch of TMW Managed Services, a new service offering designed to help companies in transportation services to reduce IT infrastructure investments, ensure scalability and optimize scarce resources. TMW Managed Services offers enterprise-class application hosting and systems management to reduce the complexity of software implementations and project startups, improve application availability, reliability and scalability, and lower the capital cost of major software implementations.

As a leading software development and solutions delivery company, TMW Systems already deploys comprehensive hosting services to fully manage back-end and customer facing operations for many of its software customers in industries such as freight transportation, waste and municipal fleets. Today's announcement formalizes those services for marketing and sales purposes.

"Transportation service providers are re-examining core competencies and looking for ways to further reduce information technology costs in already lean organizations, while maintaining their competitiveness," said Scott Vanselous, vice president and general manager at TMW. "TMW Managed Services provides enterprise-class application hosting and management services at an affordable monthly fee." Vanselous stated that with TMW's fully managed hosting services, the total costs are both more visible and more manageable through clearly-defined service arrangements.

Managed services are ideal for organizations that want to deploy new applications quickly, without managing the hurdles of hardware procurement, infrastructure upgrades, or IT staff expansion, all while aligning with corporate IT department policies. They can also provide business continuity assurance and co-location capabilities.

"One advantage of working with TMW Managed Services is access to our unmatched transportation services industry knowledge. Our engineers are highly certified and experienced and our consulting services can align with corporate IT policies and growth expectations," Vanselous said. "We offer a very cost-effective alternative to maintaining mission-critical software applications with in-house IT resources." he added.
