Issues and Challenges

Innovative companies seek to distinguish their products in the marketplace by combining fashionable and functional materials with quality, comfort and performance. These companies need to fulfill customer orders on time and communicate the status of complex orders without the best visibility into early production processes. To be a leader in customer service, companies need access to the raw material order processes to ensure downstream activities will meet each gated milestone.

How Amber Road Can Help

Amber Road’s Material Order Visibility solution helps companies and their suppliers deliver more innovative finished products by providing visibility to the manufacturer of the raw material orders placed by factories and suppliers. Directly managing raw material supply and demand improves the ability to make design changes based on actionable information and reduces the development cycle for new products while ensuring the flow of finished goods orders.

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.
