SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. and SEATTLE, Washington – January 23, 2024 – RateLinx, a market leader and Gartner top-ranked TMS solution, today revealed their strategic alliance with NexTec Group, a national consulting practice driving innovation for manufacturing, distribution, retail, and eCommerce businesses by implementing and optimizing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Business Intelligence (BI) solutions. Both RateLinx and NexTec Group have taken businesses to the next level and operated as a change agent for over 25 years with their teams of industry experts. Their goal is to automate repetitive processes and optimize business processes to save time and fit their organization’s requirements

NexTec Group clients sought a transportation management solution (TMS) integrated with Acumatica or Sage X3 that did more than print shipping labels for parcel, freight, LTL, and truckload carriers while minimizing their downtime to implement a new full platform solution for the entire transportation lifecycle from shipping to tracking, and freight auditing. The TMS also needed an expansive feature set that wouldn’t become obsolete in order to future-proof their ERP investment.

We pride ourselves on bringing the best products and technologies to our customers. In today’s competitive business environment, our customers require more than a shipping solution, they need to manage the entire transportation lifecycle. Our partnership with RateLinx allows us to provide our Acumatica and Sage X3 clients a full TMS solution at a low administrative cost. The commitment of Shannon and his team align with our NexTec values in delivering the best solutions for our clients,” Ron Fallert, National Vice President of Sales, NexTec.

We both focus on asking the right questions to uncover what clients are trying to solve with our TMS. We then use our decades of transportation management industry experience and mastery of our TMS to help clients achieve the best results,” said Shannon Vaillancourt, CEO and Founder of RateLinx. “Ron needed to know we provide the superior level of support their clients were accustomed to and get them up and running quickly. Because our implementation, tech support, and account management teams are right here in Scottsdale, our clients are implemented in 30 – 45 days.”
