Multiple Part Vendors
system allows you to manage multiple part suppliers.
You may even track suppliers who are in a position
to supply identical parts. The system routinely analyzes
vendor performance while managing individual vendor
profiles. With this extensive information, you can
obtain pertinent information about individual suppliers,
such as country of origin, price, lead time, and purchasing
terms. You can identify a primary vendor for each
part, and the system will consider that supplier when
suggested purchase orders are generated. Changes to
primary vendors are easily handled. The system provides
easy access back to vendor part numbers for internal
part number referencing.
Increased control over your supply chain, ensuring
maintenance of reliable delivery and fill rates. With
this ability to effectively manage your supply chain,
you obtain purchasing efficiencies while enforcing
your terms with suppliers. In turn, you are able to
offer improved fill rates to your dealers, and easily
react to part backorder situations by working with
your secondary vendors.
Vendor Shipments and In-Transit Inventory Manageability
system provides you with tools for recording vital
shipment information from your vendors. This information
may be data entered or electronically communicated
(if electronic linkage is available with your vendors).
Provides systematic visibility for in-transit inventory,
enabling you to extend your effective inventory levels
to your dealers. It provides necessary planning information
for preparing your warehouse and receiving facilities
for incoming parts and stocking activities. You can
provide accurate ETA dates to your dealers and customers
in response to backorder situations. You can also
monitor vendor performance with respect to reliability,
lead time, and lead time consistency.
Entry of Receiving Exceptions
system provides tools to record any part receiving
discrepancies with anticipated part quantities and
actual shipments. It also provides a reconciliation
between part invoicing and vendor purchase orders.
This information may be entered manually or electronically
communicated (if an electronic linkage is available
between you and your vendors).
Vendors can be easily managed with respect to part
quantities and invoicing. Discrepancies are automatically
flagged, eliminating the need for manual resources
for part reconciliation. You can be assured that you
are paying for parts quantities received and enforcing
any part purchasing terms with your part suppliers.
