Our brokerage, logistics and accounting applications are run on IBM's AS/400 computer system, which has the power and flexibility to process information swiftly between Cole offices as well as between us, our clients, and agents.

Also, where applicable, we can furnish our clients with an Electronic Data Access (EDA) link-up with remote dial-in capabilities via their personal computer. As a "customer driven" tool, the EDA interface may include any combination of:
Initial release (RMD) and entry data (B3) reports;
Invoices and statements;
Tariff base/parts information;
From this mass of information, printed logistics reports are configured to suit the individual needs of each client. – less–ZoomInfo
