Tier-N Order Collaboration
Issues and Challenges
Effective communication with suppliers across the end-to-end supply chain is critical for ensuring timely and high quality production operations, and the delivery of finished goods to the marketplace. However, many companies still rely on manual methods of communication with their supply partners, resulting in slow response rates and unexpected supply disruptions.
Additionally, supply chain complexity becomes increasingly difficult during the order process, when outdated systems result in errors, delays, lost time and additional costs.
- Lack of visibility during each order stage
- Ensuring timely response to customer demand and sales orders
- Fluctuating order levels and last minute changes
- Managing production/shipment obstacles and hurdles
- Multiple BOM levels that require better data management
How Amber Road Can Help
Amber Road’s Tier-N Order Collaboration solution allows companies to fully track orders and identify any potential production issues due to material delays across their entire supply chain network. With improved order collaboration, companies can quickly respond to any material delays affecting production, and increase product availability. By establishing collaboration with suppliers across multiple tiers of the supply chain, global organizations gain improved visibility into supplier operations and avoid many of the concerns resulting from poor governance.
Supply Chain Collaboration
Today, supply chain collaboration between buyers and their overseas vendors is usually conducted with an unending merry-go-round of Excel documents, emails, last minute changes and zero visibility into the real-time status of orders and shipments.
We change that by providing a cloud-based platform that all parties access across the supply chain.
"With Amber Road's cloud-based platform, we improved our supplier and partner collaboration across all phases of the design-to-delivery process, which helped reduce costs, shorten cycle times, and increase supply chain flexibility.”
