Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/21/2015 -- Ultriva, Inc., the leading supply chain execution software company, was profiled in Suppliersof.com. The blog discussed having visibility on demand all the way through customers helps eliminate surprises in the processes, so similarly providing the same visibility to a company's suppliers gives the same advantage. The Collaborative Supply Portal (CSP) from Ultriva provides similar capabilities to the customer portal, with some added benefits. The principal feature is that the suppliers get looped in on the demand cycle already established both in factory and with customers. It does so on a part level, so as demand rises for a particular product CSP will automatically escalate demand for all the component parts.
The unexpected benefit his the visibility provided to the customer, can have a view all the way up the chain to determine where the company has additional waiting and calculating overall lead time becomes trivial rather than a game of pass-the-parcel with each department.
The concept of end-to-end visibility allows demand to flow all the way up the chain and for each stage to pull what it needs from its predecessors that makes having a single integrated solution such an advantage and why we've focused on a single solution in this series. Each component gives benefit, but they really shine when you use them all.
Suppliers get a benefit as well, the same benefit companies have by understanding customer's demand, their process can become leaner, and they can carry less stock and improve service times.
