Automate and streamline purchasing processes including invoice/order matching, purchase suggestions, purchase order (PO) accruals, PO limits and approval workflows, quality assurance controls, RFQ generation, supplier agreement integration, and supplier sourcing rules to increase efficiency, minimise errors, drive down costs and improving customer service.
Distribution requirement planning (DRP)
Analyse expected/actual demand and available stock level in future periods to identify future expected replenishment needs to meet a requested minimum stock level.
Purchase order processing
Automate and streamline the fundamental purchasing processes critical to success through a configurable and intuitive workflow engine.
Web supplier delivery schedules and planning
Share forecast information with suppliers using EDI standards ANSI, EDIFACT, BISAC and ONIX to inform production planning and reduce inventory and costs across the supply chain. Manage gross or net supplier (or vendor) managed inventory (SMI), or advanced information forecast processes.
Manage the impact of price with streamlined modelling. Define standard purchase and sales prices to be applied upon any item. Define pricing exceptions depending on criteria, where items might receive a different base purchase/sales price than the one defined as standard.
Manage goods weighed during reception and/or picking, manipulating the price unit quantity instead of calculating using a conversion factor. An extension of price unit functionality that allows the manual changing of price unit quantity/quantities for a sales/purchase order line down to each individual order line quantity during reception confirmation, purchase order entry, pick list confirmation and sales order entry.
Reduce stock and increase turnover with sophisticated inventory analysis that provides visibility of stock volume, value and movability, seasonal trends, inventory turnover, lead times, and deviations in plans. While proactive replenishment suggestions and simulation functionality forecasts and automates the most appropriate stock levels, order timing and economic order quantities (EOQ).
