INTRAL’s Technology

At INTRAL we believe that technology is a key enabler to overall operational strategy and execution.  INTRAL’s IT team steers our technology vision and architecture leveraging our specialized expertise for timely and scalable development and implementation.  As a pioneer in our industry, we have been delivering customized technology solutions to the market that are designed to optimize supply chain processes.   We understand the changing environment in this global economy as well as the demands of our industry and constantly strive to develop new applications to meet these challenges.  INTRAL develops proprietary solutions using the latest available technologies including cloud based and mobile infrastructures that offer an affable user experience. Our applications are built to provide operational efficiency within INTRAL, but also provide customer-specific system solutions that are designed and implemented to meet specific requirements.

Trade Management System (TMS)

INTRAL’s proprietary Trade Management System (TMS) was specifically designed to efficiently manage our clients’ complete logistics processes and functional requirements.  INTRAL’s TMS maintains all the required information for efficiently managing the logistics and supply chain process including pricing, product and documentation requirements along with other customer-specific information.  Our TMS interfaces directly with our clients’ network with both inbound and outbound EDI file transfer capabilities.

INTRAL understands that global trade is dependent on meeting regulatory, contractual and customer partnership requirements and has customized our TMS to ensure that all our clients’ unique business requirements are securely met.  Our TMS also captures and maintains a comprehensive database which compiles a wide range of transportation, shipment, and financial information that can be used to run multiple reports and KPIs.

Systems Support and Customized Programming

INTRAL understands our clients’ business requirements are constantly evolving and we regularly provide system enhancements in response to different needs.  Our TMS is easy to customize and our IT Department can immediately respond to any system or operational change.  All data processing and software development performed on our clients’ behalf conforms to generally-accepted industry best practices.

Document Production and Management

INTRAL’s TMS currently produces all required documentation for our clients’ import and export transactions. INTRAL has the capability to quickly produce new or revised documents to accommodate issues with regulations (i.e. changes to AES legends), foreign language requirements or other needs.  INTRAL can immediately respond to any document revision request or new documentation requirement by implementing different templates or utilizing an INTRAL-designed format.  New documents are integrated into the TMS, allowing automatic creation with our clients’ data and guaranteeing security and accuracy.  Our ability to facilitate any document requirement instantaneously sets the INTRAL TMS apart from traditional ERP or TMS modules and provides a level of service that surpasses our competitors.
