St. Paul, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/19/2016 -- Supply chain visibility matters to the bottom line. Synchrono (http://www.synchrono.com), the leader in demand-driven manufacturing software was featured in SupplyChain247. The company synchronizes – and visualizes - complex manufacturing environments in real-time, to drive business results.
Supply chain visibility means all partners get access to data in real-time and is needed to achieve a manufacturers' goal of saving money quickly and inexpensively. Visibility to all orders allows suppliers to proactively respond to demand signals and demand variability. Poor visibility often results in part shortages, frustrating manufacturers who report having no idea they were down to the last box of parts. The result is expensive, using faster shipping methods to get the part back on the shop floor. A real-time view of replenishment status and parts on hand allows a supply chain manager to take-action before there is a stock out, eliminating expedited fees.
