Supply Chain Management

Supply_Chain_Management_Use_Case

The rise of the Digital Supply Network has revolutionized how supply chains behave. For this, an intelligent system is required to not only ensure companies are set up to manage new ways of working, but has the means to grow with the evolving expectations of global suppliers, markets and customers going digital.

The shift to digital can appear daunting as there is so much to do. From inventory management, supply/demand planning and freight management to PO management and returns/refunds.
The three-way match methodology practised by the Accounts Payable, whilst secure, takes times and requires meticulous double-checking of data. To speed up the process manually would increase the risk of errors being made. An automated procure-to-pay process can help a company scale by providing accurate reports faster than ever.

Fret not! FireStart is able to easily automate processes that are usually carried out manually, ultimately diminishing errors. Its ability to provide start-to-end tracking and visibility on all stages via one single platform makes keeping tabs an effortless endeavor. When an unexpected event occurs, appointed stakeholders will be alerted via emails and MS-Teams notifications immediately.

A unified and synchronized automated SCM tool not only saves time, it grants the team and company new advantages. This ranges from the ease in generating purchase reports to ensure regulations are adhered to, safety is optimized and risks are mitigated. It also enables the team to have a clear overview of the logistics and supply chain, being actively notified when new information is available – allowing them to take better-informed actions.

Automation can be applied on a range of different areas:

    • Automating errands like billings, payment processing, collections and send back orders – requiring little to no human help
    • Automating storage and retrieval systems to increase order accuracy
      Bots to trace product movements within the facility
    • Sensors to collect product quality
    • Automating shipment statuses, from late and stuck shipments to updating the inventory level
