ASM offers forwarders one stop shop with Sequoia upgrade


Agency Sector Management (ASM) has made a major upgrade to its Sequoia software, giving freight forwarders a one stop shop for freight management.

The new release gives users a single application where data is shared across all functions such as job costing and producing documentation, as well as for the Customs declaration process, avoiding the need to rekey data, which saves time and costs as well as reducing errors.

It integrates into existing ASM software without added cost to form part of the core functionality, eliminating the need for separate invoicing, sales management or job costing software.

ASM program manager, Simon Adams says productivity and compliance are very important to customers, saying: “This upgrade will further support them in staying compliant with the evolving legislative landscape and allow them to complete the entire freight management process in one application.”

ASM chairman, Peter MacSwiney adds: “As Brexit negotiations develop, we are bound to see more pressure on Customs systems and regulations, which are in any case old and in the process of being replaced.”

“ASM customers need a flexible and adaptable solution to rise to these challenges and the new release will support them to do just that as well as bringing time and cost savings by delivering a one stop shop for the entire freight management process.”

The new release includes job costing, CT guarantee management, productivity and compliance modifications to declarations, and extensions to the eDocument Management capabilities.
