Sage 300 Supply Chain Management Gets a Boost with Sage Inventory Advisor

Sage_300_supply_chain_management.pngSupply Chain Management Integration with Sage 300 and Sage Inventory Advisor

Most growing manufacturing and distribution companies agree that Supply Chain Management integration  is a constant area for improvement.  Those who make an investment in an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system like Sage 300 expect to gain greater visibility into all operations while increasing speed, accuracy, efficiency and overall customer satisfaction. Sage 300 now makes this goal more attainable with Sage Inventory Advisor. 

When you invest in a modern ERP system, one main expectation is to improve your Supply Chain Management so you can sell more efficiently and increase profits.  As a decision maker, you need to have high level as well as detail level visibility into supplier relationships, customer insights and improved warehouse processes in order to manage growth and avoid potential issues.  Let’s explore how ERP and supply chain improvements will help to positively impact your bottom line!

Why Supply Chain Visibility tools are important in today’s marketplace?

The shift in marketplace power from marketers and sellers to buyers and consumers is being accelerated and amplified by the information revolution. As sophisticated end-users demand more product and channel choices, greater customization of goods and services, and swift delivery of orders and information, the supply chain reverberations are inescapable. No matter where a company is on the source/make/deliver chain, customers are expecting more.

How do successful companies are manage supply chain visibility with growth?

Companies are responding to this charge toward a demand “pull” model with numerous initiatives:

•    Sharing product and production plans with suppliers
•    Collaborating with retailers to better predict market demand
•    Using relationship tools to increase customer and making strategic alliances with suppliers
•    Postponing final assemble and customization
•    Empowering web-enabled technology to provide visibility speeding both planning and execution

Sage Software initiative to manage Supply Chain Visibility: Apart from built-in features to manage customer demand, tracking lots, serial numbers and bins, Sage add-ons are tuned to meet the growing need of Supply Chain Visibility.

Sage Inventory Advisor

Sage Inventory Advisor (SIA) works with most other Sage products, including Sage 100, Sage 300, Sage 500 and Sage X3.  SIA reduces data entry and allows for importing/exporting between systems. Users are able to access a web and mobile user interface (UI) and a dashboard that provides direct visibility to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and financial information, including excess stock, and surplus orders, stock holding. With the Inventory Forecasting and Inventory Monitoring modules, users gain access to a graphical forecast engine that helps plan for upcoming orders and receive alerts to potential stock-outs. In addition, the Inventory Advisor includes ordering schedules, interactive reports, supplier performance metrics, and classification matrices.
