Beyond the Four Walls—Achieving Upstream and Downstream Inventory Visibility

Infor LX | BPCS | Infor LN | Baan | Infor M3

Crossroads RMC 0 247 Article rating: 5.0

When an enterprise has many suppliers, dealers/distributors, and customers spread out across the globe, it becomes important that it gains better visibility into inventory outside of its direct ownership and control, on both the supply and demand side. On the supply side, the company has outstanding POs and needs reliable estimates of when those will ship, as well as early indications whenever there will be delays in shipment. Once shipped, updates on the estimated time of arrival (ETA) are important, particularly when there are delays.

This external visibility is even more important during times of disruption. Early visibility into disruptions in supply or rapid changes in demand is key to providing the intelligence to drive agility. By responding earlier, faster, and with more accurate intelligence, a company has more options, makes smarter decisions, and avoids catastrophes.

How do you get that visibility? Here are some options…

And Then There Were None - Short Staffed?

So, you implemented your Infor ERP system 5, 10, 15, 20+ years ago, and now there are only a handful of people left from that implementation. Since most of the how and why walked out the door, how much longer can you get by on “tribal knowledge”?  

What’s the best way to proceed? Consider retraining your staff.

Crossroads RMC's consultants have had great success delivering highly impactful, focused training that shows an immediate benefit. Contact us to discuss how we can develop a training plan that is right for your business.
