Real actionable analytics. Real domain expertise.

It’s not about the data; it never was. Success has always been in the predictive signals, behavioral changes, and actionable stories created from the data. The Toolbox platform and algorithms, coupled with MacGregor’s domain expertise and implementation process, puts your data in a position to win the day for you.

The right story, from the right data.

Today’s supply chains generate petabytes of raw, untapped data.  Toolbox captures, normalizes, and stores this data.  Labor, performance, distribution, and transportation data.  Your data, from any of your systems.

Toolbox weaves that disparate information into a single pane of glass visible anywhere, on any screen or mobile enabled device.  It then sends predictive alerts and actionable signals that drive behavioral change across your organization.

Behavior change that equals cost savings, improved service levels, better trailer utilization, and better metrics-where you need improvements the most.

Toolbox. The right signals, at the right time.
