How would you like to see where your inventory is in real-time as it moves from manufacturing, through distribution and finally to retail?
With ObjectFX®‘s geospatial products and solutions, you can create solutions that allow your organization to dynamically view and interact with data scattered across multiple systems in the supply chain, including:
- Material sources
- Manufacturing plants
- Delivery systems
- Warehouses and distribution points
- Inventory levels
- Orders shipped and in transit
Bottom line: supply chain visibility can reduce your costs and increase operational efficiency.
How You Can Use Supply Chain Visibilty
A major supplier of raw materials selected ObjectFX® to provide supply chain inventory visibility. This supplier was keeping large amounts of inventory flowing to its customers where it would often sit unused for long periods of time. Reducing these excess inventories can save the supplier millions of dollars every year.
An application built with our SpatialFX geospatial software was linked to the supplier’s existing inventory, transportation, and planning systems in order to provide a near real-time geographic view of inventory locations, right down to the container level. This constantly updated view allows the supplier to closely balance its production levels with its actual customer demand. The Web-based application is accessible to all of the supplier’s branch facilities through its corporate intranet. Eventually it will be shared by its customers, allowing a common view of the entire supply chain and enabling true “just in time” collaboration between the supplier and its customers.
