[BR] Instant Smart Pricing
Instant Smart Pricing will be a new separate tab on the left-sidebar navigation. This is where brokers will be able to find a price for shippers and carriers. Currently, the brokerage are getting this information on the DAT website (mainly Rateview) but we are integrating it with the Zuum Admin webapp, so they dont have to leave the page.
The page has been updated with the latest iteration

A search bar is available to the user, within the graph. This search bar allows the user to search for a shipper.
B - One-Time Spot Pricing
B1 As a user, I can click on the ‘One-Time Spot Pricing’ tab to see the rates other brokers are paying carriers for this lane.
Design: Invision Link
This page will display the same table as in ‘Search Loads’ on DAT - this is where brokers post on DAT looking for carriers and they post the price they are paying carriers
Display 'Suggested Price' at the footer

example: (3500+3200+3200)/3 + 30%

Design: Invision Link
When the user clicks ‘Suggested Carriers' tab, this is the exact same as the other Suggested Carrier & Search Carrier pages
The rates displayed will also be different here:
Only display: Zuum Historical Carrier Rate, Zuum Current Price to Shipper, & DAT Broker Spot
Add a new card: Zuum Suggested Rate for Truckers
this is similar to the Shipment Details > Carrier > Suggested Carrier Rate
Formula: DAT Broker Spot rate - 15%

D - Long-Term Pricing: Search Shipper
D1 As a user, I can search for a shipper in the 'Smart Shipper Profit Trend'.
Design: Invision Link
Below the 'Recommended Carrier' a table will be displayed with 'Smart Shipper Profit Trend'. Here the user can type in a shipper's name and loads related to that shipper will be displayed.
Once a shipper's name has been searched, all loads for that shipper will be displayed below:
Pickup, Dropoff, Internal Shipper Rate, Market Carrier Rate, Internal Shipper-to-Market Carrier Profit, Truck, Days Ago
Footer with: 'Total Number of Loads' and 'Average Internal Shipper-to-Mkt Carrier Rate'
When the shipper's name has been searched, the search bar in the graph will also populate. These search bars are linked.
'Internal Shipper Rate' is the rate the shipper paid Zuum for that particular load.
'Market Carrier Rate' is the rate on DAT that shippers had paid carriers.
'Internal Shipper-to-Mkt Carrier Profit' is the profit gained in percentage for that shipment.
Formula: 1 - (Mkt Carrier Rate / Internal Shipper Rate)
'Avg Internal Shipper-to-Mkt Carrier Rate' on the footer is the average from 5 (above) 'Internal Shipper-to-Mkt Carrier Profit'
D2 As a user, I can search for a shipper in the graph.
Visual Specs: Invision Link
In the graph, the user can also search for a shipper's name in the search bar. When the shipper's name has been selected, the 'Smart Shipper Profit Trend' table will also populate.
These search bars are linked.
When a shipper's name has been searched, a new data set will be added:
On the legend: [SHIPPER NAME] Trend
On the graph: new line = purple
The graph line will be showing the average profit made with the shipper, applied to this lane; showing the trend profit that could be made with this shipper. The 'Avg Internal Shipper-to-Mkt Carrier' in #6 (spec above) in decimal is being applied here.
Formula: 'Historical Mkt Carrier Rate' x (1 + Avg Internal Shipper-to-Mkt Carrier Rate in decimal)
The (1 + Avg Internal Shipper-to-Mkt Carrier Rate in decimal) is being applied to each x axis (e.g. Rate data for May, Rate data for Apr, etc)
D3 As a user, I can see the Suggested Win Rate for this shipper and lane.
Visual Specs: Invision Link
Wherever a shipper's name has been searched, since both search bars are linked, a 'Suggested Win Rate $ at % margin' will appear on the graph, right-side of the search bar.
Formula for the 'Suggested Win Rate':
'Mkt Historical Carrier Rate' x (1 + Avg Internal Shipper-to-Mkt Carrier Rate in decimal)
'Mkt Historical Carrier Rate' in the formula is the SAME rate displayed in the 'Market External Rates' container
The % margin is the SAME percentage as 'Avg Internal Shipper-to-Mkt Carrier Rate'Requirement
