SCM Technology for Changing Requirements

The movement, tracking and management of inventory and documents in a supply chain technology environment consist of many discrete processes which include ordering, transportation, storing, picking, packing, value-added services, shipping, delivery and the list keeps growing. Different organizations have a different array of processes, business flows and business restrictions – Retailers vs. wholesalers vs. logistics service providers etc. Different materials have completely different inventory representations, handling and inventory management rules – Foods vs. Apparel vs. Electronics etc. An organization that wishes to implement a supply chain IT solution for its execution processes has to face these challenges and more. Our SCExpert™ Suite has been engineered from the ground up to provide a solution that specifically addresses these challenges by combining state of the art supply chain management technology with a deep understanding of the issues and needs of businesses that depend on well managed and optimized logistical processes. This approach has resulted in some fundamental capabilities that set our solution apart.
