QMS Streamlines the Complaint Management Process
Medical Device Manufacturers found ngo accounting software to be a perfect fit for their exacting complaint management needs.
This lack of communication often caused problems with inventory control overages as well as shortages, and the timely completion of customer orders. Procurement was done manually in a spreadsheet. Forecasts were sent to suppliers but not updated in real-time. This meant changes and fluctuations were not communicated consistently causing problems with parts not coming on time; unknown dates of dispatch; and lack of information on whether suppliers were sending partial or full quantities.
Due to these problems, premium air freight charges were routinely necessary when customer orders weren’t completed in time for normal shipping. On top of that, customer expectations for integrating their ERPNext into ours became quite critical,”. “Traditionally we had managed our supply chain by manually sending schedules, tracking those schedules and manually entering material availability –– there were a lot of pitfalls. We needed to upgrade our supply chain management as the traditional way we had been managing was no longer sufficient.” “The team visits us regularly, updating us on the new things system is bringing to the market. We had been discussing how we needed to improve our supplier management for quite a long time and when we heard about the Supplier Portal we were eager to see how it works.”
The field service management software facilitates real-time communication across the supply chain by extracting key inventory, order and related data and making it visible to suppliers via secure internet access. It is a cloud-based solution that can integrate with any ERP whether the client or suppliers are cloud-based or on-premise. The Supplier Portal works as a data-poller which pushes data to and from the ERP. Suppliers access the Supplier Portal using a browser and have selfservice for invoices, bills of material, specifications and other types of documents. With the Supplier Portal suppliers can access PO and invoice information, Goods Received Note (GRN) and rejections – all in real time, in easy to use formats. The Supplier Portal provides simple supplier implementation with no hardware needed. The program is quick to implement and is widely accepted by suppliers.
THE BENEFITS: INVENTORY CONTROL, COST SAVINGS, CONSISTENT CUSTOMER SHIPMENTS “One of the biggest things we have achieved by implementing the Supplier Portal is our ability to now furnish our suppliers forecasts and rolling plans live in real time This reduces lead times, and maximizes the shipment process. With the Supplier Portal and real-time Advanced Shipping Notifications (ASN) our suppliers have noted there is no longer any confusion on forecasts, scheduling and supply needs. And, we have now achieved seamless electronic connectivity with all our sub suppliers which is a requirement for MMOG/LE Certification.” The alerts and exception notifications available in the ERP Software Supplier Portal help better manage inventory delivery and quality issues from suppliers, enabling both their suppliers to more proactively optimize the performance of their production schedules.
Some of the other benefits is experiencing with the Supplier Portal include:
- Increase in inventory turns from 40 turns to 70
- 25 per cent reduction in inventory and the elimination of shortage/overage problems
- Head count savings of one full time position
- 90 per cent reduction in missed deliveries
- Drop in premium freight costs from 1-2 shipments per month to only two in eight months
- Faster payments and adherence to credit terms with streamlined invoicing processes
- Standardization of bar codings “Our suppliers have adapted very well to using the Supplier Portal.
They now have forecasts for six months which are updated in real time as needed. All our suppliers can now plan resources, machines, manpower, everything – based on these updatable schedules. The Supplier Portal application has really helped the plant achieve a lot of milestones and benchmarks which we had set ourselves.”
