Cooperation with suppliers does not always go as smoothly as desired. With LogoMate, you are constantly in view of delivery reliability and delivery accuracy and can react promptly to a lack of it.
No company can go without the systematic management of relations with its suppliers today, because a high level of confidence in the reliability of delivery is the basis of a functioning material planning. Supplier management takes care of the selection of suppliers, monitors the development of the supplier’s performance level and decides at which level the supplier is included in the value chain.
LogoMate generates information about supplier delivery reliability and accuracy before it’s too late. In this way, appropriate countermeasures can be taken and the threat of out-of-stock situations can be avoided. For inventory planning, plant and supplier holidays are also automatically taken into account in the scheduling process. After that the system automatically shuts down to the optimum stock level as quickly as possible.
Complete supplier management of great importance
The delivery reliability and the delivery accuracy of its suppliers are two fundamental prerequisites for the success of a company. Therefore a precise, complete supplier management in industry and trade is indispensable. Cooperation with a supplier does not always go as smoothly as desired. If, for example, agreed delivery and production times are not met, the entire scheduling will fall behind. In such situations, responsiveness is required. Automatic escalation/warning messages quickly detect critical states and systematically deal with them according to the Management by Exception method.
