ALTO US has recently partnered with CAP Index, Inc. to create a new offering to support dynamic in-transit monitoring capabilities into the end-to-end ALTO AssuranceSM risk management platform.
By adding CAP Index’s crime risk data into ALTO’s in-transit analytics assessment model, supply-chain managers will have additional information at their fingertips to improve their in-transit risk mitigation efforts. “Understanding what you are driving into and making decisions on where to stop or rest is critical in today’s just-in-time decision making process for the shipper, carrier, and driver. We believe this partnership is a major step in assisting industries with the critical mitigation of in-transit risk. The addition of this key layer of data intelligence enabling the ALTO’s platform to predict, analyze, visualize, and better manage in-transit transportation risk is a real game-changer to the end user,” said Steve Longo, vice president of strategic initiatives at CAP Index.
The collaboration in product design with CAP Index continues to galvanize ALTO Assurance’s vision and industry support as an innovative solution provider in North America after more than a decade serving retailers and shippers in Latin America and Spain with proven success. “One of the challenges has always been to be able to layer the right pieces together to galvanize a comprehensive and holistic view of current or potential events. The combination of ALTO Assurance and CAP Index is one more step in delivering a comprehensive but easy-to-use solution for the end user. This allows us to continue to evolve our robust analytics platform and acknowledge the renaissance taking place in the supply-chain security industry that we strongly support and are pleased to play an active role in,” said Maurizio Scrofani, CCSP, LPC, vice president of supply chain security and intelligence for ALTO.
ALTO Assurance is a modular plug-and-play system that offers asset protection and risk management professionals visibility and compliance each step of the transit of goods to their stores. Using a combination of tools to ensure assets under care and custody are at the right place, right time with accuracy, its integration mechanisms allow for holistic risk assessment with route review, tracking, and a robust audit library to provide supply-chain and logistics managers all the information needed to ensure controls are in place throughout the process. This innovative approach is cloaked with a comprehensive business intelligence platform that focuses on managing a multitude of risk factors that reduces costs associated with delays, theft, and other preventable incidents—results that add to retailers’ bottom line from both expense reduction and enhanced operational efficiency.
