There are a number of competitors for Cirrus TMS of which the two main ones are AdvantageTMS and HighJump TMS.

AdvantageTMS provides a transportation management solution that can handle both incoming & outgoing shipments. It enables customers to review carrier performance & established shipping rates, negotiate preferred contract rates, as well as utilize one portal to track all shipment statuses throughout their lifecycles. The product is available as a cloud based solution with mobile device access, and supports proactive alerts for shipment notifications as well as exceptions in case of problems. Finally there is a flexible reporting system to review shipping & delivery performance metrics.

Cirrus TMS on the other hand supports the core transportation requirements like AdvantageTMS, but in addition it has in built accounting support to manage freight costs as well as integrates to Quickbooks for detailed financial management. Additionally it is available as a cloud based solution and supports customization unlike AdvantageTMS.

In comparison HighJump TMS supports multi-modal transportation which means sending a shipment through multiple modes of transport. Additionally the product supports route optimization strategies to improve shipment delivery timeframes, and includes carrier compliance to measure shipment effectiveness measured against agreed KPIs and benchmarks. There is also an audit module to review invoices and payments to ensure correct billing as per agreed contract rates.

Although Cirrus TMS does not fully support these features, it provides customers with customization support that allows the development of specific add-on modules that can meet their business requirements. The product also provides dashboards to monitor carrier performance for future shipments.
