Revenova is a provider of multi-modal transportation management systems (TMS) designed for 3PLs, carriers and shippers. This spotlight was provided by Mike Horvath, executive vice president & chief marketing officer at Revenova.

Introduce your company and what makes it special.

Revenova TMS is the industry’s first TMS built natively on the cloud platform enabling seamless deployment with Salesforce’s industry leading sales, marketing, service, collaboration, AI and analytics solutions as well as thousands of third-party applications available in the AppExchange marketplace.  This ability to deploy business applications on a common cloud platform empowers companies to focus on business innovation versus integration of technology resulting in lower costs, higher productivity, increased margins and customer satisfaction.


How did you enter the 3PL industry and what is your background in the industry?

I entered the industry in 2014 when Charles Craigmile, Dave Craigmile and I founded Revenova.  We saw an opportunity to deliver TMS in a whole new way.  Our vision was to build a TMS directly on the world’s #1 platform and ecosystem for sales, marketing and service professionals,, so companies could automate the entire quote-to-cash process on a single platform solution.  Think of it like the iPhone or Android, where powerful apps are downloaded from a marketplace, share data instantly and are centrally managed.  This architectural design offers significant improvements in productivity while lowering overall costs over traditional software implementations.

What about the 3PL industry do you like the most?

What I like about the 3PL industry are the people.  People in our industry are constantly looking to innovate and serve their customers, employees and partners in the best way possible. They are tech-forward thinking and willing to try new solutions and processes to improve their businesses.

What about the 3PL industry is most challenging?

One big challenge we see for 3PLs is the ability to adapt to the least, and the most, advanced technology at the same time in the same process.  For example, you may have a highly reliable owner operator who works only by phone and email along with a carrier that wants a blockchain integration or a declarative AI interface like Chat GPT with your system.  This along with customer expectations for real-time “everything” makes pulling it all together a challenge for any 3PL.
