OneSCM will enhance end-to-end supply chain visibility and drive revenue and expense improvements
Austin, TX ‒ October 5, 2016. TAKE Supply Chain, a division of TAKE Solutions Ltd., today announced that one of its new customers, a multi-billion-dollar automotive retail industry provider, has gone live on TAKE’s OneSCM® Solution-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform in a cloud environment. The company has deployed OneSCM to automate and increase visibility across its global supply chain operations.
The company turned to TAKE Supply Chain due to outdated supply chain systems that lacked visibility into customer sales orders and fulfillment to roughly 15,000 auto dealership customers, as well as purchase orders from their suppliers to several warehouses. The company was also challenged with obtaining the real-time data needed to track performance, which was leading to a number of time-consuming and costly inefficiencies.
With OneSCM, the customer can deliver a highly configurable end-to-end supply chain solution that blends disparate data and provides a single version of truth for multiple systems within an increasingly complex infrastructure. Managed from a centralized and intuitive dashboard, OneSCM streamlines Order-to-Cash and Procure-to-Pay processes to enhance both inbound and outbound supply chain operations and, ultimately, reduce costs and increase revenue.
More specifically, OneSCM will provide the customer:
- Real-time visibility into sales and purchase orders, inventory, shipments, and invoices to enable more accurate lead times and schedules;
- A highly responsive workflow engine enabling the sharing of information internally and with trading partners to streamline decision-making processes so that the company can commit to orders and manage customer expectations with higher confidence; and
- Business intelligence (BI) dashboards that provide ongoing insight into key business drivers so the company can evaluate their supply chain operations, measure trading partner performance, and drive holistic process improvements.
Improved automation will enable the customer to process payments faster, allow trading partners to be self-sufficient, expedite logistics and receipt of goods, and reduce purchase order processing time. Additionally, the customer will be able to better reallocate accounts payable invoicing resources so that staff can focus on more strategic tasks that will drive the business forward.
“We have seen tremendous momentum over the last months as customers across industries realize the benefits of our highly scalable, reliable, and secure OneSCM solution,” said Brad Huff, EVP/GM, TAKE Supply Chain. “OneSCM’s ability to provide real-time performance insights is critical to enabling organizations to significantly improve the efficiency and value of their supply chains and drive measurable business value.”
