MatchBack Systems Releases MatchWerksTM 2.1

 

New Features Help Customers Modify Portals For Their Unique Business Needs

Green Bay, WI – 20 October 2015 – MatchBack Systems, Inc. (www.matchbacksystems.com),
the leading software solution to automate, plan and communicate street-turns, is proud to
announce the latest release of the company’s MatchWerks software. With a mix of new and
improved features, MatchWerks 2.1 adds capabilities that enable customers to modify their portals
based on their unique business needs, search more effectively, create special alerts and create
container reports.

“When we launched MatchWerks earlier this year, we had one mission: to help customers create a
paradigm shift in their own supply chains by making street-turns mainstream,” said Todd Ericksrud,
president and CEO of MatchBack Systems, Inc. “We’re just a few months in and I’m proud to say
it’s working. But, we want to make our software work harder, so we constantly listen to our
customers to add features that help their planners find the best street-turn matches to reduce their
costs, distance and emissions. Since launching this summer, we now receive more than 5,000
import and export posts each day and have made more than 2,500 matches. Each successful
street-turn results in approximately $400 (USD) savings for the pair. And, those savings are
growing each day for customers in North America and Europe.”

Some of the MatchWerks 2.1 highlights include:
Enhanced planning support
Added support for container yard locations
Added a customer-specific preference field
Provided new customer and vendor alerts to manage equipment more effectively
Added new match sort criteria of In Route Radius
Added an Interactive Surplus Container Report with filters for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL),
Size Type and Date
Improved potential match filters
Improved the workflow to view confirmed matches
Quick confirm process for internal customer matches
Post cancel field in the upload
Display shipper name via hover bubble

“We’re excited to share these new enhancements with our customers and the industry,” continues
Ericksrud. “We look forward to their feedback so we can continually improve our products to ensure
our customers gain the most from their supply chain investments.”

Current MatchBack Systems customers have automatic and immediate access to the 2.1 upgrade.
