How are you expanding? More of the Same New Areas of Business Reaching a New Customer Base Additional OTM functionality
OTM Environment Questions Will you attempt to separate your businesses?
Domains Agents Other considerations
Will you change your new facility to your current OTM processesor will you have a new set of processes to support in OTM? Who is your Executive Sponsor? Who is you business partner who will enforce this change? Will the business require a new STANDARD process regardless?
What processes are currently manual? Are these scalable with the new addition?
How accurate is your data in the legacy systems and OTM?
Process Questions Will you accept Order Modifications? Do you want to trigger tender modify notifications? Do you have any involved parties that need to be added? Do you have any secondary shipment requirements? How will you generate customs documentation? Will you assign customs brokers automatically? How will you handle returns and diversions? Do you want to handle multileg routing in OTM? Are there any required transportation movements that
would not come from your Order Management System?
Systems Questions Master Data Naming Conventions Systems of Record Order Management Warehouse Management Payment System Yard Management/Dock Scheduling Load Ready Notifications
Operational Questions Will this increase your modes in OTM? Will you be using new equipment types?
Weight limits the same or different? Equipment availability? Exact Match of equipment to execution?
Carriers New Carriers? Region based Tendering? Does your spot rate process change?
Do you use a warehouse? Would OTM be responsible for those moves? Where would the order come from?
Will you also include Customer Pickup or Supplier Delivered shipments? Will this increase your regions? (Domestic/Export/Import/Border Documentation) Do you have the requirement to move miscellaneous shipments that are not in your Order Management
System? (ie. Repair Parts) Seasonal requirements?
(Produce Season/Superbowl/Christmas Shopping/Freeze Thaw)
Rate Sourcing Questions Are rates sourced today by the same group that they will be in the future Is there a standard fuel surcharge? Any new accessorial costs or changes to existing costs?
Tarping/Tolls/Stop Offs/Detention/Demurrage/Truck Order Not Used Will rate costs remain the same? Will rate structure be the same? How will rates be loaded into OTM? Is there an RFP process in place?
When will it next occur? How will this work with the project
timing and resource requirements?
Finance Questions Allocation Rules Freight Payment Accrual Currency for Payments
Currency conversions? Are there any tax implications on your shipments
GST/HST/VAT What does your finance system require from OTM?
Physical Location Attributes Validate address information
Name/Address/Contact Information Required Communications on Tender Hours of Operation Rail siding Dock doors Drop Yard
Size Who is allowed to drop Drop vs Live Load expectations
Do you have any servprov constraints on sources or destinations? Does your location have any special security requirements?
General Recommendations Have a single point of escalation for business process changes Utilize legacy data whenever possible to understand what they are
actually doing, not what they "think" they are doing Ask what works well now and what are your biggest pain points currently Plan to spend 50% more time per site on your first three sites
Make your first sites sing your praises to their partners Plan post go-live care in advance Can any of the business process changes be made in advance Know your rules and what the exceptions are to your rules Identify any competing projects for resource availability and possible
timeline impact Executives don't want to hear about why you are delayed
