Up Data Creek? Here's Your Paddle
Data is like a river. It can rush at us at full speed, and it can be oppressive if we’re thrown into it without the proper tools to survive. For companies with large parcel expenses attempting to make sense of where their money goes (and what can be done to recover it when it’s needlessly lost), this challenge is especially great. As Big Data floods our lives, we need new tools that help us make sense of the data. That’s exactly what the VeriShip Intelligence Platform (VIP) does.
VIP was borne of the need for companies to convert deeply complex shipping data points into simple, easy to understand information. We discovered that although the data was strong and making a difference in identifying areas for our customers to recover their parcel spend, customers needed an even deeper level of analysis in order to prevent ongoing, unnecessary costs.
If that wasn’t tricky enough, a worthwhile platform also needed to be accessible anytime, anywhere, configurable, and work in real-time. And most of all, we knew that the information needed to translate into strong, consumable visuals that created actionable intelligence.

These challenges are customer-specific, but also industry wide. To address them, we spent years developing VIP. VIP makes sense of a rushing current of information crashing towards entire industries, helping companies use data as a tool to paddle with the tide rather than against it. And for an industry rife with parcel savings opportunities, it’s a much needed tool at that.
The fact is: This is the direction all data-crunching, client-empowering companies need to go. It’s not enough to simply generate and track data—it’s only in providing real-world, real-time data analysis and prescriptive insight that data becomes more than a rushing torrent of information.
