Performance Management Reporting
Issues and Challenges
Global supply chains are complex, interconnected systems that must be managed by establishing key performance indicators, capturing metrics, analyzing results, and developing strategies to continuously improve performance. Unfortunately, many supply chain teams struggle to access data stored in multiple sources and formats. Consequently, it is impossible to get a birds-eye-view of global performance.
- Managing integrations and normalizing data across all trading partners
- Retrieving and analyzing thousands of data points and presenting results in a useful format
- Pinpointing key indicators, such as broker performance, customs clearance rates, on-time delivery rates, cycle time, etc.
- Distributing reports across the organization to drive decisions
How Amber Road Can Help
Amber Road's performance management capabilities enable users to generate reports or manage key metrics through scorecards and dashboards. Each department can access its performance monitoring reports to manage service providers such as suppliers, forwarders, and brokers, as well as manage critical process cycle times. By sharing operational data and metrics across compliance, logistics, and procurement domains, supply chain managers can make better data-driven decisions and manage cash to cash cycles.
To reduce inventory carrying costs and improve supply chain efficiencies, you need accurate analytics to reduce variability and eliminate dwell time. To optimize trade lane performance, you also need accurate visibility into individual order and shipment status.
Amber Road’s multimodal logistics solution provides a range of capabilities to identify and remove inefficiencies resulting in shorter cycle times and less variability, helping companies reduce transportation costs, while improving service levels and transit times.
“We’re achieving complete visibility into inventory movements, lowering safety stock levels and reducing cycle times – giving us the edge in this highly competitive environment."
