In a recent proof of concept — for one of the top 10 third-party logistics companies — we were challenged on the performance of Multi Support® Next.
Learn from Allied Market Research about the top 10 3PL companies.
They challenged us because some of their current solutions didn't perform satisfactory, resulting in:
As you can imagine the numbers are big in multinational logistics — numerous countries, thousands of trucks, millions of deliveries, and billions of documents.
Did Next pass the test?
"Yes, Multi Support® Next passed in flying colors."
|Raw insert and indexing Multi-threaded||4,600,000 docs/h||x1|
|Remote document capture using web services||1,500,000 docs/h||x3|
|Import from file system controlled by CSV file||131,000 docs/h||x34|
|Import from file system CSV — convert gif/tiff to pdf||31,000 docs/h||x145|
Raw capture capacity of 4,600,000 docs/h allows us to make a simple, flexible, and reliable solution design that delivers consistent service with an absolute minimum cost for hardware, system software, and technical support.
You may think — “I’m not in IT operations, and I couldn’t care less”. Or “We don’t have numbers anywhere as big as these guys”. But I’d like to challenge you on this — performance matters, even for you.
If you choose a solution that doesn't scale — giving you poor perceived service — you'll end up with only a few optimized processes.
If you choose a solution that scales by complexity — adding endless servers to your setup — you'll end up spending your money on infrastructure instead of optimizing business processes.
Neither is great. That’s why I say:
"Performance powers processes."
