Since Logitude’s SaaS solution is rich in software modules, Release Notes are regularly issued to keep users up-to-date about new features and enhancements, as well as changes that were made since the previous release.

As a SaaS solution, Logitude now comes with a Data Warehousing (DWH) feature that allows admission to a database that contains only your own company data. This makes it possible to connect to any external Business Intelligence (BI) software and generate reports based on all of your data.
At this stage, your database will contain data from Shipments Fact only, and it will be ready for use two weeks after the release. For more details about activation and pricing, First Class customers can contact us at email@example.com.
