Managing Multiple Sites to Optimise Performance and Meet Consumer Demand

A Software Solution That Connects Your Whole Operations Network

As supply chains come under increasing pressure, effective performance management becomes more critical for companies — not just within individual facilities but also across their entire operations. Managing multiple sites to optimise performance and meet consumer demand.

Dematic Connect builds and manages strong, reliable supply chain execution systems for multiple-site operations or for a network of sites in various locations, maximising performance to ensure you always meet consumer demand. 

With real-time dashboards and data analytics for both labour and equipment performance to improve resource utilisation and scheduling, Dematic Connect generates key data required for an accurate, real-time picture of inventory across the entire supply chain. It provides an integration framework that allows for a single global inventory view.

Setting you up for success

To move forward with certainty, you must be able to optimise, execute, and align from end-to-end to reduce cycle time and ship faster without sacrificing order accuracy and operational agility.

Dematic Connect takes you to next level of supply chain execution with key features that include:

Supply Chain Visibility

Get a comprehensive overview of your entire supply chain. From optimised production planning to efficient transport execution, Dematic Connect accurately forecasts workloads and expertly facilitates order fulfilment from one-to-many sources.

It also offers: 

  • Global Inventory
  • Order Management
  • Supplier Portal
Global Inventory

Visibility with real-time data across multiple channels

It is functionally very rich, providing real-time inventory status and location updates enabling stakeholders to make truly informed decisions to optimise their supply chains.

From optimised production planning through to efficient transport utilization, accurately forecasted distribution centre workloads and the planning of order fulfilment can all be seamless achieved.

The offering has different components, that can be taken in their entirety or cherry picked to meet the exact operational requirements that you have.

  • Provides global visibility of inventory throughout the enterprise
  • Publishes data in real time to websites
  • Enables sharing of a common inventory pool across multiple channels – stores and eCommerce
  • Handling of inventory reservation and release
  • Facilitates the integration of additional inventory systems as new fulfilment locations are introduced
  • Ability to expose data to customers and suppliers via portals
Order Management

Tools that provide precise location information

With the benefit of a global inventory view of the supply chain, an effective order management regime can be implemented.

Among the benefits include cost reductions through order accuracy, better customer service through real-time order status, and greater control over global inventory.

  • Allows fulfilment of orders from one source or several (taking into account the customer’s location, delivery preferences, and many other factors)
  • Support of dropship vendor (DSV) operations
  • Distributed order management- the use of fulfilment determination rules to breakdown an order into constituent parts and allow phased/multi-location fulfilment
  • Determination of Delivery Promise – factoring in items such as order cut-off time, customer-selected delivery options, and fulfilment sources
  • Altering of risk to Delivery Promise
Supplier Portals

Provide further details for inventory and order status

An integration framework designed to ease the integration of Dematic Software solutions into a wider IT architecture. Equally, it offers a cost-effective way of integrating non-Dematic Software supply chain solutions without recourse to complex third-party integration tools.

Delivery of a Supplier Portal via Dematic Software to facilitate the interaction and communication between software applications in a service-oriented architecture (SOA), provides all the functionality that supply chain-wide operations require to work efficiently and effectively.

A typical deployment has the potential to truly open up your data, optimising performance and immediately reducing IT complexity.

It delivers:
 
  • Asynchronous data exchange
  • Data transformation
  • Open messaging and integration standards
  • Greater flexibility
