Parcel BI at Chicago's Parcel Forum 2018. Leader of Parcel Spend Analytics ToolsVizion (Parcel BI) exhibited at the Parcel Forum 2018 in Chicago this September and the results have confirmed what we knew: Parcel BI provides game changing Analytics.


As the only true analytics first company at the show, Parcel BI resonated with the attendees looking to manage their own spend and go beyond the carrier invoices.  The stream of companies were seeing the new navigation and tools offered in Parcel BI and saying that the analytics were unlike anything they were seeing in the industry.  

“This is what we have been looking for!” was said by a logistics manager at a major parts distribution company.


Shippers and consultants alike were blown away by the power of contract edge and how they could use the tool to their advantage in a negotiation.

Empowering them with instant access to the data needed to understand the impact of every key incentive and discount based on their own historical services and volumes. Leveraging the lessons learned in the seminars on effective contract negotiations, many companies were seeking a tool to use to negotiate on their own and found that tool in Parcel BI.


Built on the Vizion360 Analytics Platform, Parcel BI unveiled Freight Margin Analytics – the tool to allow companies to upload sales data into Parcel BI and expose the impact true, delivered parcel costs are having on their profitability. This takes analytics to a whole new level, answering the question that so many companies deal with, which is “what is parcel really costing on the bottom line?”
