The Softeon Platform and product suite have the ability to facilitate the business processes of many different industries and adapt to the diverse challenges each vertical must face on a daily basis. Here are some examples of industries in which Softeon clients have had great success in implementing a comprehensive and efficient supply chain system:
Distributing consumer and retail goods is a tightrope act of managing the product pipeline, receiving and shipping proliferating numbers of SKUs. Adherence to compliance – whether regulatory requirements, label compliance or meeting SLAs with retailers – requires constant vigilance. High volumes are received and pallets, cases or SKUs must be picked – all within short windows – via material handling equipment (MHE) or non-MHE managed pick routes.
Third-party logistics providers (3PLs) of all kinds need flexible customer operations. Solutions for warehouse management, distribution and billing must handle complex supply chain processes across multiple vertical industries. Softeon supply chain solutions manage multiple clients in one warehouse or across many in a dynamic, scalable framework that quickly onboards new clients.
Hi Tech & Electronics
High-tech assembly presents many challenges for electronics manufacturers, contract manufacturers and 3PLs. Good supply chain management systems streamline the process. Great supply chain systems hold the potential to transform value-added operations with true supplier integration, including materials tracking, just-in-time (JIT) stock replenishment and returns management.
Beverage distributors and wholesalers face relentless pressure to move high volumes of proliferating SKUs in and out of their warehouses. With beverage inventory owned and managed by the distributor, the “push” supply chain demands even more precision and speed. To ensure margins, distributors must perform receiving, putaway, picking, truck load planning, route planning and direct store deliveries with the utmost proficiency.
Consumer Packaged Goods
Food wholesalers, distributors and processors must move product through the warehouse with extreme efficiency to make their margins. Whether fresh produce or frozen foods, every case lot, pallet and SKU must be tracked and handled under tight regulatory compliance measures and to meet customer SLAs. There’s no room for error or inefficiency with product recalls, dock and load scheduling and product re-handling on the dock.
Manual environments and lack of real-time data can cripple the manufacturing supply chain. To proactively manage inventory and distribution flows, warehouse management systems (WMS) require integration with ERP systems. Softeon supply chain management solutions seamlessly integrate with ERP systems such as SAP, Oracle, Baan and other proprietary systems as well as standard integration protocols to facilitate quick implementation and ROI.
