Automated Freight Bill Entry (FBE) Processing – Why Aren’t We There Yet?
Feb 27, 2018 7:30:00 AM
There are many different “solutions” out there claiming to have an out-of-box package that can completely eliminate the need for manual data entry of your Bills of Lading (BOLs). They claim to offer a complete workflow automation package that can easily drop into your existing freight billing process. Sounds amazing, right?
Overpromise and Under-Deliver
Unfortunately, this has left some carriers spending more time and money than they thought to try to customize and integrate the software to their own unique billing needs.
The fact is that the technology available to freight companies today is not there yet to completely eliminate the need for manual data entry. Many small-to-mid-sized carriers with limited budgets are operating off legacy systems that were created decades ago. In order to use these so-called new ‘out-of-box’ software systems, carriers are having to spend a fair amount of time and resources to properly integrate the software into the legacy systems. And still, the accuracy rates are not what they were promised to be. It has left a bad taste in many carriers’ mouths – we know, we now work with some of those who have been burned.
There’s a Better Way
For over the past decade, we have made it our mission to serve as the freight back office partner to professionals in the freight industry, just like yourself. As a result, we process over 30% of all BOLs in the U.S. This has given us a very keen understanding of the pain points experienced when it comes to turn-around times, quality, and exceptional accuracy rates in the freight bill entry process. We decided to come up with a solution to those issues. That is why we createdDDC Intelligence, our intelligent freight billing solution.
DDC Intelligencestreamlines the manual bill entry process. It is the leading and most accurate way to capture content on the front-end, that can then sort and extract data from structured and unstructured documents. This solutionreducesmanual data entry and eliminates volumes of errors and manual re-work.
