Real-Time Supply Chain Management allows Macola users to record all business transactions at the first touch point in the organization. Adaptable tools can automate business processes and allow agile business decisions based on real-time data through: Business Intelligence, Warehouse Management, Production Management, Order Processing, Shipping, and Packaging with Pallet Management, and Bin/Serial/Lot control.
An example of the value of recording a transaction at the first touch point would be in picking and shipping. Traditionally, shipments are recorded in the ERP system as an inventory reduction after they have been written on the pick ticket and then keyed in at a later date. In a real-time environment, the reduction of material would be recorded as soon as it is taken from the shelf which is the first touch point of inventory movement. This means inventory on hand information is accurate to the second to allow for rapid and accurate business decisions.
Through real-time recording of data, Macola users benefit from reduced costs, reduced data entry errors, improved customer service, reduced inventory, compliance, and the ability to expand without additional personnel.
