To Manage a Modern Supply Chain, You Need:

Ability to create customer hierarchies with associated rules for assigning inventory that’s in short supply.

Consignment Inventory

Simplifies the inventory consignment process and provides the visibility and control you need to manage your inventory and generate invoices at the right times.

Advanced Drop Shipment

Get clear visibility by tracking the shipment through delivery and invoicing, ensuring traceability and providing an audit trail.

Obsolete Inventory Management

Insight into obsolete or potentially obsolete inventory can have a major impact on your inventory investment. By providing this insight, inadvertent purchases of potential obsolete inventory are prevented, reducing the size of potential write-offs.

Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)

VMI is an agreement between you and a supplier to store their inventory at your facility, with them retaining ownership of the goods until you use them. The supplier receives EDI or other forms of notification advising that number of the inventory items have been used/sold and then generates an invoice for the usage.

Trade Service Price Management

Buying components from multiple distributors can be complex because of varying pricing policies and contractual agreements. Consolidate data from multiple distributors and receive periodic updates to help ensure that buyers place orders with the most cost-effective distributor.

Vendor Performance Management

Track multiple KPIs, including on-time deliveries and average delivery time variance. Also, the application tracks total purchases, which helps when negotiating prices on future orders.

Cut to Order Management

Manage reusable reels and cut lengths of lumber, wire, and cable. Track and optimize all cuts by length and gauge and inventory usage is suggested to minimize unusable lengths.

Advanced Shipping and Receiving Date Control

Control shipping and receiving dates on sales orders, you can offer a valuable service to customers who have space or other constraints that limit their ability to accept inventory outside of specified parameters.
