With this ‘need to know basis’ type of approach, every party in the supply chain reacts to an event triggered by the preceding party. This reactive state often creates variance, unnecessary churn and a sub-optimal result with higher administrative, inventory and transportation cost. With systems, processes and organization structures all acting in silos, end-to-end optimization of the inbound supply chain is a wish instead of a reality.
After assessing the inbound to manufacturing process, the LogiFlow development team went to work. With their unique understanding, the team worked with the manufacturing company to receive order information and requirements. Then they invented a web application that shared order and shipment requirements with suppliers along with innovative processes that proactively managed the end-to-end process.
